St. Pats fun

So before I left for my first week on site, the DH, Baily and I went to an event put on by the Four Legged Friends Foundation called O'Fluff's Luck Charms. The foundation raises money for low income families to help pay medical bills so pets are not taken to shelters and ultimately euthanized. We decided to take Baily because she is the best behaved of our three.

While there, they had fashion shows, raffles and blind auctions. Ian and I ended up with 5 gift bags (they were giving away the extra's), bought 10 raffle tickets and ended up winning a bag of dog food and the grand prize of a two night getaway to Palm Desert! We are very excited about that. We also won a silent auction and got 4 tickets to see the final home game of the LA Kings! Ian is a huge hockey fan having been born and raised in Alaska. All in all it was a great event and we actually walked away with more in prizes than we had spent in donations! We also shopped some of the vendors and got BC a new collar and some belly bands (super nice suede and sheepskin ones we got for a steal) since he still tries to mark everything.

Apparently Baily is not a big fan of me being gone all week. Big Carl decided to welcome me back by eating a whole bunch of cat poop and throwing it up all over the sofa... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew.
