Walk the Walk

Sunday, an absolutely perfect fall day, was our reward for going to watch our son's band play for the Humane Society Walk for the Animals. This first photo was before most of the crowd showed with their dogs. His band played off and on for FIVE HOURS---10:00 to 3:00. He was fighting a head cold and had to be there at 6:30 that morning for early set up as they were closing Constitution Ave. in the A.M. It was a good cause, but I am glad he still has his day job.

The location, Constitution Gardens, was perfect for both dogs and their owners.

And my little Xman had a good time listening and dancing to his Uncle's beat. We all were afraid he would fall into that "E. coli" lake, but he kept his coordination together.

They were supposed to have a tent with potential animals to adopt and I was worried my husband would lock eyes with a mutt and fall in love from across the room (tent). But this was put on hold for another day, because we were so busy visiting, listening to the music, and watching the toddlers that we didn't make it back up the hill. We ARE going to get a dog, probably sometime this year, but we have escaped mutt love for the time.


  1. Looks like a perfect day! I would not be able to resist puppies, although that's the last thing I need now!

  2. Mutt love strikes and you cannot resist. Your day will come.

    Speaking of "your day",looks like you had a good one.

  3. Looks like you had a great day.
    Last week I had a thought of stopping at the Humane Shelter for pets. Then second thoughts. Sadie has been gone 3 weeks now.
    I know if I walked in the door and "locked eyes with a pet" it would come home with me.


Take your time...take a deep breath...then hit me with your best shot.
