Hello doxie moms and dads,
Thank you to those of you who made it out to our walk in Delaware park, it was an absolutely beautiful day (finally!)
FOSTER NEEDED: Here is an important message from member Debbie Zito: "An attorney friend of mine contacted me, she does guardianships for the elderly. She has a client with severe dementia and they're trying to place her dachshund because she is going into a facility. She asked me to post a message in the hope someone from our club would foster the dog. His name is Frederick. If you can help or know anyone who can, please contact:"
