I helped Mom and Milo raise money for orphaned animals, Mom & I have been doing this for 6 years now...We do this 2 times a year, the other is in May for the Humane Society and this one was for Helen Woodward Animal Center...

Yesterday it being 10-24-2009 I didn't walk this time. Mom usually has us in our doggie stroller, but she wanted to try letting us walk. Well I wasn't happy too many people and their big dogs it was just too much for me, so I started jumping and crying to Mom----please Mom pick me up..after Mom checked in and we had our picture taken which by the way wasn't a good one both Milo and I were looking away, so the man taking the pictures told Mom to get our picture taken again so we did....Mom took us back to the car to get my doggie purse that Mom has for me to get in...Once I was in my safe purse I felt better and I was up near Mom's face and felt secure once again....and that is where I wanted to stay...

We walked back to the fun area and we looked around, Mom saw some fuzzy blankets she wanted to get up for our beds but wanted to wait and think about it...

Now it is time for us to go get ready for our walk, it was hot out there and poor Milo being too big and heavy for Mom to carry had to walk, you see we walk between horse corrals at the Jenny Criag Horse Farm and it is pretty ruff to push our stroller Mom did that a few years and decided she just couldn't do it any more...so Milo walked, I did last year.

With it being hot out Mom decided it would be best if we walked the one mile instead of the 2 mile like we usually do when it is in the morning, this year they changed it to the afternoon and it was too hot for us...Poor Milo he walked the whole way, he drank a lot of water and did his boy doggie marking all the way...but we did have fun walking by the horses they were very interested in us and us with them...big animals they are luckily they are behind fences for us I say...

Well we walked in honor of our cat sisfur Tallulah for being a fighter and survivor, she never gave up and she now is in remission so we couldn't give up just because it was hot, we had to keep going for our Tallulah!!!! so we finished and Mom was so happy that we didn't give up and kept going to the finish line and we were the first to finish the one mile...we raised over $300 dollars, Mom usually raises more but she didn't sign up to do it until a week before, she did good I say!

Poor Milo he is so hot and needs more water so we stop and Mom sits on a bale of hay and gives us water and she gets some for herself....now Mom says we need to go get our picture and we are going to leave, Mom just got too hot and needed to get home..she also had to go take care of a kitty that is diabetic and Mom has to give her her shots 2 times a day!
We find our pictures and what do you know we both are looking at the camera. they are really cute, it is a different picture from the one on our pages, Mom has to figure out how she can get it on our pages...hopefully she can....Mom bought us new warm fuzzie blankets it helps the animal center so Mom didn't mind spending the money.

Even though I didn't walk this year I had fun cause I was up in the air near Mom and I am so proud of Milo and Mom....hopefully next year it will be in the morning again and not so hot so I can eventually get out of my purse and walk with Milo...our next walk is shorter and I will walk on that one it is near the beach...cooler that's for sure...

That was my day at our walk for the animals...we are so happy we are able to help orphaned animals and we hope they all get forever homes!!!!
