    Just a few days away. Hope everyone's getting those great costumes ready! We're still looking for volunteers, particularly with set up (we start setting up at 9 am) & tear down afterwards. Everyone hope for good weather. The rescues are ready & we can't wait!!!

    I lost my pug Duke two years ago and can't bring myself to drop from this meet up group. I hope to attend one of the events someday for some pug hug therapy. Wish all of you lots of fun!
