Barkin for Batten Part 1

We went to an event called Barkin for Batten. This is a great event and I really wish they would get a better turn out. This is their 2nd year and it is for such a great cause.

Great raffles and silent auctions. We were the high bidder on the Petsmart basket this year, had a $75 Gift card and a really cool lamb stuffie that Bokeh and I have already started to destroy. BHAA HAA lamb!

Our friend Maggie and her mom were there as well

Maggie is a great therapy dog so she went to visit the kids and they really liked that

Our training club was there doing obedience and agility demos. Mom did Bokeh in obedience and he made her look silly. BOL.

  1. I've never heard of Batten's disease before, will have to google it.

    Looks like a fun day was had by all for a great cause. Hope the event raised lots of green papers, even if there wasn't a bigger turnout.

  4. Hi Sagira:
    I love hearing how your foster people loved you so much they decided to adopt you, and that you are so active!
    Thanks so much for asking about SuperLevi. Our shirts are in sizes S-XL and they run on the bigger side (they are similar to Men's American Apparel sizes). The $33 donation includes a T-shirt, dog bandana, packaging/shipping, and an invitation to the 'virtual walk'. As we're walking here in Chicago, we're excited to get everyone's photos on the Facebook to see all the walking happening anywhere. I hope that answers the questions, and thanks for thinking of us and SuperLevi!

  5. We too had never heard of Batten Disease. So many little ones out there in need of a therapy pup. We hope this event was a success.

  6. What a great cause! We hope that as more people become aware of this disease that the turnout improves and the Event grows. Momma knows how hard it is to get people to come and support a cause--even a great one--don't give up and keep spreading the word. Every step is progress, big or small.
