It's a Walk in the Park with Turtle Gardens!

Today is the day of the big draw for the raffle prizes - I am rooting for all my blog readers who bought tickets from me. Thank you, thank you, thank you - I was delighted to be able to send in $825 and NO unsold tickets from those I had committed to sell. Winners will be contacted by phone and a list will be posted on the Turtle Gardens website within the next few days.

After the draw this morning, there is a "Walk in the Park" for Turtle Gardens supporters and alumni, both human and canine. It is at Everett Crowley Park in Vancouver from 2:00 - 4:00, and Yvette from Turtle Gardens has made the trip south to join in the fun. I hope to meet some of you there.

Sadie and Belle will be coming to the walk, even though they are not Turtle Gardens alumni; they are TG supporters because they know first hand what it feels like to be a homeless dog, and they know their mama is a huge fan of the hard, hard work Yvette and Dave and family do to meet the needs of dogs in the north. Charley would enjoy the walk too, but she doesn't like car travel that much so will probably stay home along with our bouncy lab houseguest, Tina.

Good luck on the raffle, everyone - I hope that one of you is about to head to Mexico or win another great prize in the draw!
