    WoW I am blinder than I thought LOL I did not see that link. Thank you all for your help. I put up some pictures. I also have a couple great videos of the races. Will they upload from the same link

      Ginny - why don't you put them on YouTube and then just provide us a link to them. It might be easier that way!

      Good Idea. I will try to get that done. In the mean time if you want to see our bad boy Patches in action search for Dog Dunks Kitty on YouTube.

    Ron and I had a great time introducing Patches & Merlin to all the awesome fur babies that attended. We got some great pictures and would like to share some on the website but do not see an option to do that. Could someone please advise?

    We had a great time - DARE did an awesome job with the new location. Too bad the weather kept so many away. I hope they met their fund raising goals.

    Well, we will be unable to make it. We took our Doxie Casey to the vet today (she had back surgery last December) & she was not cleared to attend. :(

      Our Snicjs had it in April but he is doing well and allowed to go in wagon and if uses his wheels. Hope Casey feels better soon

      seems to me it was about $5 per dog for the race but I'm not sure.
