inquiring minds wanted to know...

awhile back lola's *mom* now mrs. d asked how the husband and i got involved with the spca and volunteering there...

well for a few years the spca held their biggest fundraiser of the year the 'furball' at a country club near our house...we always said 'let's go' but we never did...woulda shoulda coulda...anyhoo one day over 3 years ago i saw in the newspaper that the spca was having a special event for valentine's day - a wine tasting at their new adoption center...the husband knew that 'M' (whom he worked with) did volunteering for the spca so he asked her about the event and next thing you know we all 3 decided to go...the new adoption center was very very nice and we thought how volunteering there might would be something we would be interested in...so 'M' hooked us up with the volunteer coordinator who immediately snatched us up and said 'come to the next volunteer training on this tuesday nite' and we said 'sure' and that's how we became volunteers for our local spca!

since we live near the petsmart which houses some of the spca cats for adoption we decided that would be our main volunteering task...we also participate and volunteer at several of the bigger events throughout the year such as: santa paws (pets get their pictures taken with santa by a local photographer), dog walk and 'bark after dark' after party, dog wash at wholefoods and the BIG fancy schmancy event...the furball...here are our pictures from 2005 and 2006 taken in our front yard by the husband's mother (hence they are sort of blurry)...

That is so awesome that you guys are involved with the SPCA. I bet the "fur ball" is a lot of fun. They did something similar to that here this past year at our local shelter and a friend of mine went. Hopefully, I will be able to attend the event next year. Great pictures of you both! I love your dresses and especially the shoes!

Love the dresses. Espeically the first one. If that had been my husband, it would have been the same tie in both pictures! lol. Your SPCA sounds like it is really on top of things and has some great ideas for fundraising. So much fun! I'll try and think of some questions.

Those are great pictures! The dresses are beautiful...I think I like No. 2 the most. I can't wait to see your new dress. SPCA sounds like a wonderful organization.

Thanks for sharing your story. It's wonderful to volunteer your time to such a worthy cause.

I agree with everyone else, the dresses and shoes are really nice. Did you make those belts...I bet you did!! : )
