Last Night was the SPCA's Cause for a Paws!

Sorry it's taken me a whole 24 hours to post about last night's event - I guess it tired me out more than I thought it would! haha!

I think the organizers of the SPCA event were probably happy with the outcome of the event. Everything seemed to go off without a hitch. The food was wonderful, the auction items were great, the room was lovely - and the fashion show was awesome!

Halifax was all atwitter last night with the fashion show. Everyone felt like they were in New York city and Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadetter Peters were just about to walk into the room. All the dogs were very happy to be getting all the attention I think and it was all for a good cause. I was happy that the dogs were in a spot where you normally wouldn't see them - inside a hotel where food was being served - so I was happier than a pig in shit.

I got a couple of auction items and now will have very shiny shoes thanks to a new shoe shine kit, will have clean dogs thanks to 4 free dog washes at Metro dog wash, and will be better prepared at night thanks to a nice flashlight from the Halifax Port Authority.

And the dogs enjoyed a piece of chicken that I stuck in my bag that got all nice and mushy by the time I got home last night. Yummy!

I took so many pictures that I posted them to a web album at if you want to check it out. Be forewarned - the pictures there are VERY cute!

Oreo the english bull terrier was the star of the show!

    It was a fabulous time! I didn't get to take home any auction items, but enjoyed myself immensely. I agree, Oreo stole the show. That's the most I've seen Lumpy move in a long time!
