Pet Promise Rescue Run

So tommorrow morning I am going to do a rescue walk with the girls. I am very excited and it is a great cause. Last year we did the 5K and I had to carry Dora half the way. She just laid down in the grass. My husband ran it with the maltese the entire way. This year I am hoping she is older and will walk the entire way but either way, we will do it together. We get ice cream afterwards and a lot of the vendors come out and give away many dog products.

Yesterday, HRI got notice of a possible Havanese in the County Pound less than 5 miles from my house. I went over to identify the dog and I wasn't sure as she was just shaved to the skin. I really didn't know as I can picture Dora's body when she has a bath but I have no idea what she would come in looking like after having to be shaved and depending how long she was a stray. She was very sweet girl off but obviously pretty spooked out. HRI is taking the little girl in and she will be going into foster.

I think with all this going it is going to make the walk extra special. So today give your little Neezer a hug and a kiss!

We had a great time! It ended up being a completely gorgeous day. The little maltese actually caused us to not go the entire way. We went to the run to visit with friends early and Isabelle was chasing around a standard poodle, eating cheetos for breakfast and just bruning too much energy. By the time we started the walk she was already a bit too tired. I knew Dora was hot too but when I picked her up for her to take a break she wiggled her way down. I was proud of how much she wanted to keep going this year. She has definetly built up her stamina. The best part of the day was being with friends and their furkids and then sharing ice cream with Dora & Belle at the end of the walk! We were able to do all this while raising money for pet promise!

We had a great time. I just think Belle over did herself. Last year she ran the 5K (3.1 miles with my husband!) no problem. This year, I think I let her play too much before the actual walk. But she wasn't too tired afterwards to eat ice cream. Belle was running up to strangers and barking at their magical white cups! Dora would take a lick. She is such a sweet girl when Belle would try to eat the entire spoon. Dora is definetly a meat eater!
