On May 6th Abby and I are walking in the Bark in the Park walk/run again. Last year Mazie, Abby and I all walked—in the snow—to help raise money for the Humane Society. It was a long walk. A really long walk. Mazie was actually tired at the end of it. Not me though—after the walk, I wowed the crowed with my agility skills.
We're walking again this year to help rescue animals—like Mazie. Mazie was a shelter dog. Her mom and four other siblings were dropped off at the doorstep of a shelter in a Rubbermaid container. They were all flea-ridden, malnourished, and sick with worms. The shelter was able to treat Mazie and her family (all 6 of them) because people like you donated the money to pay for medication and vet visits. Then people like Abby and Kevin adopted the unwanted dogs like Mazie and gave them a good home where they were wanted.
OK, so we all know Mazie can be a huge pain in the butt sometimes. But I kind of like having an annoying little sister around. It’s much more fun to chase squirrels with her than by myself. She’s good at playing tug of war and the two of us have made barking at the mailman a form of art. Plus being the top dog doesn't count for much when you're the only dog in the house.
If you want to help other animals like Mazie get the care they need so they can find a home, too, then please sponsor us in the Bark in the Park walk. You can send a check made out to HSCA (Humane Society for Companion Animals) to Abby at 1119 Seminary Ave, St. Paul MN 55104 by May 1st.
Here’s where your money could go:
$15 – feeds a litter of kittens for a week
$35 – provides small animal (bunnies, hamsters, guinea pigs) food for a month
$75 – prepares a shelter dog for adoption (meds, exams, vaccines, grooming)
$125 – x-rays for shelter animals
$175 – emergency care for dogs hit by a car
Thanks for helping take care of our friends,
By the way – Mazie's a little sensitive about the whole shelter thing, so please don't start calling her a neglecterino or anything. Thanks!

Mazie and I went and got our headshots taken for another modeling company last Saturday. I think it went pretty well. They took five pictures of me, a couple sitting, a couple standing, one lying down, I was looking pretty good. Then it was Mazie's turn. They took one picture of her. Probably because she refused to hold still.
Yesterday the photographer called our house and, surprise, surprise, Target wants me to come in tomorrow for a photo shoot.
