Today was our local animal rescue's 7th annual dog walk. It's Sarge's biggest fund raiser of the year.
Even quilters got in on the act by creating and donating a Christmas quilt to raffle....one quilter was Chris Kroot of Waynesville, NC.
Several dogs were dressed for the occassion.....loved this poodle....who was even sporting sunglasses! Next year our Sooty will be dressed better than just a Packer's scarf!!
A line of well behaved dogs while we waited to started our 6 block parade through downtown.
I believe their goal was to register 500 dogs for the walk......we are guessing they met it.....look at all the walkers for blocks ahead of where we were....
Perhaps more dog training is in order for our dog......I didn't post about her recent BIG oops, mainly because this was just as much our fault. She managed to get a large aluminum pan, overflowing with pulled pork...right off 24 hours on the smoker, off our kitchen counter. It was covered with plastic wrap and cooling a bit before storing in the refrigerator....how she got this thing off the counter, onto the floor...right side up w/o spilling a drop is beyond me. I found her with her head buried into the pan after she'd eaten about half the pan....probably about 2 pounds. Amazingly...she didn't get sick. Hey, she's a lab....labs are always hungry and will eat anything!
