Welcome and all 3 & 4 legged pups and kitties are welcome! Please do come! I see Admin gave you the link but I’ll give you the basics here too. Rockwood Park in Richmond VA 3:00 to 8:00 on both Saturday and Sunday. Sally has rented a shelter (we’ll be taking donations to reimburse her at the party) I can’t remember if the number is 1 2 3 or 4 but it’s the shelter closest to the Rockwood dog park. I know the shelter number is probably in that link Admin gave you so peruse it to your hearts content and you can get lots more details. There’s also a survey in there too to take for people head count for food etc. Again welcome and get ready to meet some of the nicest people on this planet!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
