DogGone Dirty Rocks!
I love this group - they are like family to me and I am so proud that they have successfully had their first event. Ash, Anna, Mark and Rhonna worked hard to make it happen and it did! You build it and they will come!
Lots of newcomers came out and many already looking for the next Splash Dogs event! Veterans, Jeff and Gianna - thank you for your help around the pool w/wrangling and such. Gianna - as you know I think Dega is oneof the biggest inspirations in the world and I love seeing that girl on the dock! The story about the gentleman from this weekend made me tear up - that is so awesome he could join us! Louise and Naika - I have missed you guys a lot and am so glad that you ladies came out - Naika looked awesome!
More thanks goes out to Classic Cleasners,Cresco Equipment Rentals, Living with Dogs, the Police Department and the Girl Scouts who worked it on the coat front - thanks for all your hard work you guys! And many thanks to all the sponsors of the Tennis Ball Raffle!
JBagby Photography covered the event - I cannot wait to see all the pics, especially from the costume contest! I actually went out Trick or Treating w/Amanda on Saturday night in costume,Thanks for getting us in the spirit!
I want to also give kudos to all of the families who adopted dogs this weekend. There are three lab puppies that will be taking private lessons at the DogGone Dirty facility in the next few months and will be joining the SD Family in 2010! There were a total of 6 dogs that I know of who were adopted at this event, over $1000 donated and I believe we hit 205 coats!
