(I arrived early and found a spot RIGHT next to all of the adorable adoptable puppies!!!)
Last year in March, it was in the 70s for their event – but this year, it was foggy and the temps stayed in the upper 30s / lower 40s all morning… but that didn’t stop the GPG staff and all of their supporters from having a great run and a great event!
There were lots of friendly faces (canine and human!) at the event. I spoke to a few people who loved the idea of our in-home hospice and euthanasia services, and wished they had known about Lap of Love sooner. I spoke to many people about the benefits of a peaceful in-home goodbye. And I was able to hear many stories about beloved pets who still hold a warm place in their family’s heart. As we spoke, many dogs sat patiently for their owners to give them a treat from my table… but a few jumped right up and helped themselves when their people didn’t take the hint quickly enough! The runners / walkers had a great time, and everyone stuck around for canine kissing contest and tail wagging competition!
All in all, it was a successful day (despite the cold), and Lap of Love will definitely be back next year to support this amazing organization!
