Doggies Get a Day Out and Help Domestic Violence Victims

When we got to Barber Park Sunday for Doggy Day Out Orlando, we didn't know what to expect, Lulu and I.

We had put out a lot of fliers, tweeted lots, got our friends at News 13 to talk about it. But would people show up, and would they donate?

Boy, did they ever!



People started showing up before we were even ready.

Folks came with all kinds of dogs -- poodles, beagles, pugs, corgies, westies.









And they brought all kinds of things for the Paws for Peace kennel -- food, treats, leashes, toys, even a pet carrier!








I want to thank all the wonderful people who made this possible.



My friends Rachael Singer, Jenevieve Jackson and Brian Wilson for all their help at the event and with the event.

News 13's Allison Walker, Brett Rosner and Ybeth Bruzual for helping spread the word. And Ybeth's mom for her goodies, they were a big hit!

Special thanks to Audra Turner and Joshua Perry at Orange County Parks and Recreation for helping me make this happen at Barber Park.

And finally, our sponsors, who donated awesome prizes:

Pine 22
Tijuana Flats' Just in Queso Foundation
Painting with a Twist
Jimmy Johns (Amanda and Joe Clark, especially!)
Woof Gang Bakery -- Winter Park
News 13
Pookie's Bakery
Rick's Dog Deli.com
Orlando City Soccer
Sit n Stay Pet Cafe

Now I'm working on getting the donations to Harbor House of Central Florida for their new Paws for Peace Kennel, opening in December.

I think we will definitely try to do this again. I am humbled by the turn out. Thanks again!
