Raising Money for Rescue Dogs

We did it! On Saturday, October 20, Goldie, Don and I  completed the Strut Your Mutt walk in Exposition Park in Los Angeles. It was pretty warm, so it felt more like Stroll Your Mole, but it was fun and sooo rewarding. Our team, Adopt Me Rescue, raised $14,101! I want to thank all of…Read more Raising Money for Rescue Dogs
