Bark in the Park!!!

This post isn't related to Mickey's condition, but instead devoted to my beautiful boy Java and our fun at the Chicago HSUS Bark in the Park yesterday.

It was amazing to see thousands of doggies and their people out helping this great cause. Dawn, Loki and I hit the road at 7AM to head downtown. We checked in and I got a cozy fleece blanket as a prize for earning $610 dollars!

Our friends Louis and Figment (Mickey's 1/2 sister) joined us with their people Renee and Cyndi. We did the 5K walk and stopped mid-way to have a romp in Lake Michigan.

The weather could not have been more perfect, and all the dogs were so wonderful.

We also got to meet a lot of our online buddies, that was really cool!

Here are some pictures, enjoy!

At the bottom of this one is our BPO buddy Sampson, we got to meet him and his mom Kristi. Sampson just had disc surgery on his lower back and is doing wonderfully, YAY Sampson!

Lastly, I thought this one was pretty with the buildings in the background.

Thanks to everyone that participated and donated to this much needed cause, we had a GREAT time!!!
