In addition to our fabulous
Reunion, GRRI was busy with lots of other fun events this summer,
where we got to meet with the public and talk about Goldens and rescue.
Our Goldens joined
in the fun too. We bring them as our ambassadors, but don't tell THEM that ... they think
its just so they can get extra treats and scritches ... and they DO!
Here are some highlights
set up a table outside the Three Dog Bakery in Haddonfield -- you can imagine how much the
Goldens loved that location!
also participated in the Jersey Shore Animal Shelter FunDay,
which as the name implies, WAS really fun ... despite
some less than wonderful weather. You can see all the
educational literature and
merchandize we bring along to these events. What you
CAN'T see is what our volunteers
do to try and protect them when the wind picks up or it
rains, like it did that day!
Now those would have been funny pictures!
the Twin Brook Kennel Club Show was indoors, so weather wasn't
a factor, unless you consider the air conditioning
... note the long sleeves in JULY! But our intrepid
volunteers were undeterred
-- even our youngest members joined in to help -- and once
properly dressed, everyone enjoyed
a very fine day.
Morris County 4-H Fair is always one of GRRI favorite events. The crowds are great ...
and so is the funnel cake!
