On September 26th I volunteered at the Walk for the Animals. I used to walk/run adoptable dogs at the Fire Hydrant 5 with the Larimer Humane Society and was really excited to be a dog handler at "my" new humane society.
My adoptable dog this year was Remi, check out his event photos.
He was a 6 month old, terrier mix, with great personality! He was in such large demand and I was almost concerned that a fight might break out about who would adopt him, there were at least 5 different groups considering his adoption. He was adopted by a very nice couple at the event, although one little girl's heart was broken that they adopted him before her mom could show up (she was shopping with a friend's family when she met and fell in love with Remi).
Here is a photo of Remi and I, although not so flattering of me, it had been pouring and my hair just wasn't cooperating.

In June I walked with the MaxMobile at the Pride Parade. I decided to participate for a number of reasons. One, I didn't have any other plans and wanted to check out Pride without being the loser by myself. Two, I wanted to support those in my life who don't have all the rights that I do as a straight person. Three, I always like spending time with adoptable dogs. I was going to post photos taken at the event, but didn't want to infringe on any copyrights, so check out this link to view some photos. However, here is a photo of a really cool bike in the parade.

Today I went on a hike with Emma, I picked Emma to hike with because she is good with everyone, but also ready for action at any time. Emma is a 2 year old Pit Mix (otherwise known as a Pitbull or Staffordshire Terrier). She has been at the Seattle Humane Society off and on for a while (because she isn't available for adoption I can't remember for how long). I believe she has been in at least one foster home and now is hanging out because she is going to be a star tomorrow, more about that when I know more.
The plan was to hike to Cedar Butte, however the Iron Horse Trail was closed so I headed the other direction and ended up walking on a large, gravel road which headed towards Twin Falls. It was much more of a walk than a hike, but the scenery was lovely and the weather was beautiful!
link with some information about breed-specific legislation. Emma was a bit scared of the mountain bikes, I don't think she had ever seen one, but she was still a perfect lady and just jumped a bit when they surprised her.
All in all it was a good outing, we hiked about 10 miles for about 3 hours. The only bad part of the day was dropping her off because she did not want to go back in her kennel and howled after I left.
I plan on adding more pictures and the link to her tv debut later this week.
