Bark for Life

Bark for Life

Friday, August 6th, 2010 | Canine Cancer, Gryffindor, Indigo | Comments Off

The Bark for Life that Indy and I will be walking is coming up! It’s Saturday, August 21st, and we are really looking forward to it!

In their words:

The American Cancer Society’s “Bark for Life” is a Relay for Life fundraising event that honors the care-giving qualities of canine companions.

Last year, Indy and I participated in Abby the Pyr’s memory. This year, we’ll be walking in Gryffin’s honor, in addition to all of our friends and family, furry and human, that have been effected by cancer in some way. Putting it mildly, cancer sucks. Heck, I’m tearing up just writing about it.

So here’s the scoop. This particular event is being held at Fullersburg Woods. If you would like to join us, we would absolutely love it! You can register for the event here. If you are unable to join, but have the ability to donate to our cause, you can do so via our secure site here. Every dollar helps.

To be honest, money is great, but if you are in this area, I’d really love it if you joined us. To give you more incentive, in addition to the walk, the event will also have:

• Dog/owner look-alike contest
• Best bark contest
• Pet photos
• Pet-product vendors and services
• Dog wash
• Pet trick competitions
• Canine Therapy Group
• Pet communicator

Last year’s event was fairly small. I would not be at all surprised to find it the same way this year. Please help us make it a great event!

Bark for Life!

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009 | Indigo | Comments Off

Indy & I have decided to participate in the canine version of Relay for Life, which is an American Cancer Society fundraiser. This Sunday, 8/16/09, we will be walking at the Bark for Life in Western Springs, in honor of the several friends and coworkers we have lost to cancer in the past year.

If you are in the Chicago area and would like to join us, you can find information about it here. If you are outside of the Chicago area but would consider sponsoring us, you may do so via our fundraising page.

Now all we need is great weather!
