Young artists and the Concert for Kindness

We made a visit to Kyle Clark’s Advanced Drawing Class at Booker T. Washington School for the Visual and Performing Arts as we do on a regular basis, and as usual were completely amazed.  The creative energy of these wonderful young artists makes every minute there an real treat.  The artwork they are doing for this year’s Concert for Kindness Silent Auction is nearing completion and so beautiful.

It’s time for Puppy Yoga at Northaven Trail, and what could be more fun?  This event has really grown over the past two years and there are now more tickets available for the October 20th class.  And look at all the cool sponsors who are participating! Ticket sales benefit Artists for Animals and Operation Kindness.

Voting Update!

VOTE TALLY 8_21

Voting is almost half over and we’re a whisker away from 6000 votes!  What’s your voting strategy?  Waiting until the last minute might and then spending the whole amount? That might sound like the thing to do, but you’re voting blind that last evening and hanging back doesn’t incentivize the pack!

If some of our dogs in the middle of the race think they’ve “got it made” they might not try as hard — and we all need a dangling carrot (um, er, bone?) once in a while.  So why not do half now and save half for the finish line?

Whatever your strategy, we’re so very grateful for your support — and may the best dogs win!
