What a great day we had today! The weather was perfect and we had a ton of visitors who kept us very busy. Lots of people took information, asked serious questions about adoption and we actually ran out of the newest news magazine. We got $121.81 in donations, and sold 5 calendars for another $50.
This was Karen Hetrick's first meet and greet with Riley (formerly Jethro). Even though he doesn't like the camera, Riley did very well with meeting people and dogs. Winnie and Griz and I were also joined by Karen Davis with Caesar, Patrick Doyle with Annabelle, Don and Rusty Krause with Sunshine and Stormy, Pat Morgan with Sunny and Fred and Jasper Prose. Also many thanks to Nick Dodson for setting up for as I was running a little late.
The store personnel are great - they always treat us well and it's a pleasure to be there!
