Last few days of 2012




badger game

We spent the last few days of 2012 up in Lake Mills enjoying the snow (who would have thought Chicklet actually likes the snow?), taking in a Badger basketball game and relishing the last few days of relaxation before work begins again.

On Friday we attended the Houndstooth Ball and it was wonderful. Lots of money was raised, Chick made some new friends and nearly inhaled her pupcake. Not to mention the venue, Architectural Artifacts, was lovely. The best part, though, was seeing all of the wonderful dogs who were adopted over the past year, who could have just as easily met a different fate at the city shelter.

Have a fun weekend.

This week felt particularly long and I’m happy that it’s finally Friday (and that this lovely fall weather is continuing). Do you have fun plans for the weekend? We’re learning how to become volunteers for the Safe Humane Court Case Dog Program at Animal Care and Control tomorrow.

The program was designed to specifically help court case dogs (dogs who have been relinquished voluntarily or by the court from their defendant owners charged with animal abuse or neglect). Dogs who are part of the program are in desperate need of socialization, training and enrichment. Some of them have spent years (!) in a shelter environment. I’m excited to learn more, but I’ve heard it can be a real tear-jerker.

On Sunday we’re headed to the Fall Harvest Festival on Grand Avenue with our Little Brother. There’s no playground, but it’s free so fingers crossed that he has a good time. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

PS: Remember when I couldn’t decide which jacket to get for little Chick? I ended up going with something totally different, and it’s arriving today! Pictures to come soon.
