Tess is not amused at my choice of budget dog toys. I think she rocks the owl look pretty well!

Tess is bored being cooped up. She brings me a toy—or in this case balls—one by one until I respond.

Once again I’ll be participating in “Strut Your Mutt,” a fundraising dog walk sponsored by Best Friends Animal Society. This year’s Strut is Saturday, October 12th at Liberty Park.

NOTE: For those of you who have heard my sales pitch, have generously donated in the past, and want to support us again, please skip down to the link below to donate. I am reaching out to new people this year so I need to add a few words about “Strut.”

With Aggie back in 2008

I first started participating in Strut Your Mutt in 2007 with my first “mutt” Aggie. I quickly became sympathetic to their cause—you can click on the video below for a virtual tour—and have been participating ever since.

Along the way I have been blessed with help from some of the world’s most generous people….and you know who you are! In the subsequent years, I have been to Best Friends in Kanab, Utah many times to visit and, more importantly, volunteer my time. It’s such a wonderful place (as you’ll see in the video). I even placed Aggie’s remains there at Angels Rest, the final resting place for beloved pets that have crossed Rainbow Bridge.

I’ll try to resist the urge to drone on and on….the video is really insightful. I hope you’ll help us out with a few bucks (tax deductible, you know!) and for those of you on my Superstar Donor list for your year-in and year-out support, THANK YOU! You are rockstars. 

Thanks (and “Woofs” from Tess),

Support Ken & Tess in Strut Your Mutt
