MAGDRL: 6th Annual DE Dog Fest April 22, 2007
 
It was a beautiful spring day for this year's Dog Fest. Our PA/DE event was in a covered pavilion at St. Anthony in the Hills. Vendors, rescues, and guests packed the place!  See more photos of this event at the PA/DE MAGDRL web site.
 
This year's event was awesome!! This is the biggest dog walk that MAGDRL has had, and dog owners came out in droves.

Pet chain stores PetSmart and PetCo gave out free prizes and coupons. There were breed rescues and humane organizations, doggie bakeries, doggie merchandise vendors, and pet service companies.

 


MAGDRL had a table just inside the main entrance -- a great location to catch people coming in looking for information and merchandise.

Our MAGDRL PA/DE Dog Fest team did a fabulous job and it was great to see our teammates.  PA/DE volunteer Kelley Montgomery organized this event with a great team of volunteers. At right is Bambi Rohrbaugh.

 
MAGDRL had a second table filled with merchandise. They had a great selection of clothing and logo attire, plus neat things for dog lovers.

In the purple shirt is long time volunteer and former Coordinator Sheila Marshall. Right now Sheila is fostering 8 YO MAGDRL orphan Sara who is a real sweetheart!

 


Maryland MAGDRL volunteer Susie Marucci (left) drove up to help with the raffle. There was a table full of raffle baskets displayed behind Susie, plus another table with silent auction items including a lovely Louise Peterson basket won by Aimee Ross!

Susie got to see her heartthrob Jupiter for the first time in a while, and she met puppy Savannah. She hasn't fostered for a while, so she was delighted to find herself surrounded by Danes!

   

 

    Maryland MAGDRL volunteers Brenda Rouse (l) and Aimee Ross (r) drove up to enjoy today's event.   Brenda's Dane girl Shasta is almost 9 YO and she's still a wonderful Great Dane Ambassador!

 

   

 

    MAGDRL adopter Michelle Pape had a great time with her Danes Bruno and former MAGDRL orphan Chevy.   Jupiter has his own fan club! We were met at the door by an admirer who said they fell in love with him through his web photos.
