Hi Ben!
 
I am so sorry that we haven't been able to attend more events -- all of our puppies have entered adolescence and all I have to say is oh my goodness do they keep us busy!  This is an interesting phase in that I'll be having them do these high level tasks such as turning on a light or paying with a credit card and they do it brilliantly .... and then I ask them to "sit" and they look at me as if I'm speaking a foreign language (which, of course, I am) ... they ponder it a bit and then think "ah ha, you must be asking me to jump on you, yah, that's it!!" ;o) ;o)  It doesn't help that we have lost several key volunteers to summer, moving, getting jobs, etc. .... so we are really stretched thin at the moment (and to top it off, we recently had a puppy break a toe while "ruff-housing" and so is on constant supervision) ..... BUT nevertheless we do wish we could attend more events and we think that what you are doing is brilliant!  We had such a fantastic time at the previous events you hosted to benefit PawPADs!
 
We are gearing up to do another volunteer push and so, in the fall, will hopefully have more time and people to come to your events.
 
That being said, if you ever want an organization to support that will show up (with dogs in tow) AND support DFAC's mission -- count on us!  ;o) 
 
Take care,  
 
Linda

Hi All, the next meetup was supposed to be with St Jude but I have not heard anything back from them. So, I am looking for a charity/cause/non-proft to support for our August 12th meetup. When I pick a cause I try to pick a organization that will support us to. By showing up with information, bringing people and encouraging their contacts to join DFAC.
Please let me know if you have anyone in mind! We have been able to raise $200 - 300 per event at Spill the Wine.
There is also a rocking local band that volunteered for this event.
Please let me know,
Ben Berry - Organizer
