    Default Tonka @ Bark For Life for the Canadian Cancer Society!

    Yesterday Tonka and I as well as some of our furry and human family and friends did Bark for Life! It is the doggy answer to the Relay for Life to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. A few years ago I lost my Nan to Cancer and in June of this year I lost my mom to it as we'll at only 51 years old. This is the first event with dogs they have ran in Western Canada and it just felt like the perfect thing for me and my Tonka to do together for my Mom and Nan. We had a blast and our Team, Bark Off Cancer!, raised $1900 to contribute to the $8850 raised by the event in total! Tonka won best dressed, nobody can resist a Bulldog in a tough guy harness and a pink tutu!

    Here's the pics!

    Thank so much everyone for your kind words. It was a great experience that hopefully we can do every year. Makes me happy to be able to do something needed and important to help those who are fighting against cancer now and in the future. I think its a wonderful way to love and remember the amazing women my mom and nan are.
