May Howlers Pre-Woofstock Workout!!!

  • May 6, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • Totoredaca Park

My howl time flies, eh?!!!

We're just over a month away from the second BIGGEST FURRY FUNdraiser of the year! The 9th Annual K9 Rescue Me Walkathon kicks OFF on Sunday, June 10th at the biggest pet event in Canada...WOOFSTOCK!!!

The biggest furry FUNdraiser for us, of course, is our BEAGLE BASH FOR CASH in November, but that's a long way away and we need more funding now! Our beagle funds are getting dangerously low and that's why this year's Walk matters more than ever before!!!

We've been hearing from the grapevine that many of you are walking with your own beagles on our behalf and we couldn't be more thrilled or more grateful to you! So we thought it would be nice to sweeten the pot for you too! Thanks to MURALS BY MARG, we are offering a FREE Pet Portrait by the very talented Marg to the beagle lover who raises the most $$$ in pledges for this year's WALK!!! Visit her web site: http://www.muralsbymarg.ca to view her incredible work!

We also thought we'd offer our BOB baseball caps at a special price of $15 at this Sunday's meetup so everybody heading to Woofstock can show the world there's No People Like Beagle People! Imagine a sea of red ball caps at Woofstock this year!

But if you can't attend the big event and wish to pledge our very own Cy-the-one-eyed-guy OR, you plan to go but still need to set up your own on-line giving page to collect pledges, don't hesitate to visit our site to lend your paw:

http://www.bigonbeagles.ca

Of course, we're getting a little ahead of our tails here, aren't we? Our beagles need to get in ship shape so they can walk the Walk this June! So let's get together this Sunday at our favourite mega dog park and do some sniffs & stretches!

We've got some celebrating to do while we're at it! Your devoted beagle servant just won the Global Pet Foods' Heroic Heart Award for the Ontario region! And guess what that includes? A One Year Supply of Dog Food for our homeless howlers, courtesy of Science Diet!

For those of you who nominated me for this incredible award, I cannot thank you enough. It's an honour to receive it but it's so much more than that. Knowing that you believe in us and the work we're here to do means a whole lot to me. And how it positively affects the beagles we're here to save means even more. I thank you and I also thank our beagles - whether rescued from sad beginnings or loved from the start - these special beings inspire us to do great things.

Looking forward to seeing many of you soon!

    This was an AWESOME meetup!!! Extraordinary weather! Wonderful company, 2-legged and 4-legged! The perfect prelude to the Rescue Me Walkathon at Woofstock on June 10th! We're definitely in shape for it! Especially one beautiful beagle in particular! Winston stole the show with his brand new Bodacious Bod! With a little help from his dedicated foster parents, Winston has miraculously shed the pounds that were weighing him down at the time of his rescue! It was only a few months ago that Winston came to us, weighing in at over 60lbs! He was in horrible shape. But he's lost it all! His nickname has gone from Winnie the Pooh to Minnie Winnie! My sincere thanks to his foster parents, Leanne & Guy, for all they've done to restore this beagle to the beagle he was meant to be! But we can't forget his personal trainer (and best bro), Quince! While I'm at it, thanks to all of you for your friendship and incredible support! If not for you, these miracles couldn't happen! See ya'll at Woofstock!!!
