Everyone who knows me, knows I am obsessed with Dogs! ALL dogs. Whenever I see a dog going down the road with it’s head hanging out the window of his human’s car, I smile. Whenever I am out and see a dog and their owner, I have to ask if I can pet the pup (and take a picture). If I attend an event and I am photographing, I come home with more images of dogs than people. That’s normal right??
Well, I was in DOG heaven! On Sunday, August 26th we supported Splashpaw’s 4th Annual Red Carpet event at http://CabarrusBrewing.com. The Bark and Brew event was so much fun! It included vendors, boutiques, silent auction items, swag bags full of goodies, door prizes, beer, friends and lots of dogs!!!
If you are not familiar with http://www.thesplashpawfoundation.org/, let me tell you about them! They are a local foundation founded by my friend Ginger Moore. The foundation is in memory of Ginger’s dog loving mom!
Established in 2013, The Splashpaw Foundation, Inc.™ was founded to assist and improve the research, treatment and care of pets in our community. Each case benefited by Splashpaw is veterinarian referred to ensure that your money goes to help a good candidate with a good prognosis, thus ensuring the donation is spent wisely. Without the Splashpaw Foundation, these pets would have an uncertain future due to the families’ inability to afford the unexpected vet bills. We really believe in what Ginger and her foundation do to help our furry friends in our community!
Our friend Michael Robinson at http://cabarrusanimalhospital.com/ was the emcee for the event. Keep in mind, Dr. Robinson has been the official emcee each year and CAH have been great supporters since the beginning of Ginger’s foundation. Needless to say, we love us some Dr. Mike!
The real heroes were the four legged models walking the red carpet with their humans. While our eyes were on the sweet four legged models walking the red carpet, their moms and dads were adorned in beautiful outfits from local boutiques. Thank you to all the boutiques that supported this amazing event!
Thank you so much to http://www.mainstreampets.com for donating and putting together three hundred awesome swag bags and giving away a live auction item of a years’ worth of dog food!!!
You guys rock!
