FOR ALL THE DOG WE'VE EVER LOVED . . .

Thanks for coming!! All of you!!

Kudos to you who better the lives of dogs, however you do it -
woof! woof!!

Lord, a great time was had by all - the food, the prizes, our fabulous live autioneer, Philip, who gave a very special tickle to our live auction - kept the crowd on their toes, and the beauteous Mistress of Ceremonies, Celia, added just the right touch of elegance and whimsy when it was needed. The volunteer DJ, a dog lover/rescuer, who came in and volunteered at the LAST minute was a man after all our hearts, playing such a variety of music that everybody at the party could sing along, dance along.

We laughed, we ate very well, the food was totally fabu, the bartenders at El Rio were outstanding, the special volunteers from Levi-Strauss were unbelievable with all of their help throughout the entire event and did more than we ever expected. Old friends, new friends, kitty folks, and even some rabbit folks and dogs, lots of them.

The individual and the general raffle items, the auction items, all generously donated, ranged in bids (do I hear $300, do I hear $375, do I hear $400 and up, up, down, up,, down, up and yes, the final bid goes to the lady in the green coat for $450.00!)for a coastal hotel weekend with dinner for two - to -$2.00 for fun raffle items - literally something for everyone. Doggie items, kitty items, restaurants, books, bakery offerings for special occasions, trainers ranging from dog behaviorist/trainers to personal trainers with a 3 month gym pass! Woo hoo!

So thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our four-legged friends have something they would like to share with all you special people, a little ditty, goes something like this:

"Just keep on comin, baby,
We'll always be here,
we got the soul, we got the motion, we share your emotion,
such good care we'll take of you,
Just look at me, I'll make you laugh, I'll be true, and I promise our path will be like no other."
