MAGDRL: PetSmart Laurel    April 1, 2006
  Today was our inaugural event at the new PetSmart in Laurel, MD.  This store just opened, nevertheless our highway signs drew in visitors who wanted to meet Great Danes.  It also didn't hurt that we had a beautiful, warm spring day!
  The Eastern Meet & Greet Team had a surprise visit from Western MD Meet & Greet Coordinator Cindy Prevost (left) with her Dane girl Shiner. Thanks for driving around the beltway to spend time with your teammates! Seated is Eastern MD Meet & Greet Coordinator Eileen Edelblute with her Dane boy Jackson. Eileen's mom Marlene Edelblute (right) also came out to spend the day and offer a free pair of hands.

Not shown is MAGDRL volunteer Susie Marucci who has fostered orphan Sonny for almost two years. Susie came out dogless after having done an orphan transport earlier in the day. Yeah Susie!!!! I also came from a vet appointment with my Dane girl Merlot to spend a few hours with our team.

We hope that we can hold recurring events at this store. Once the shopping center is finished, this store should be a good site to attract potential adopters and volunteers.
