Adventures with PAL
I have recently become involved with a wonderful organization called PAL. People Animals Love is an organization where volunteer dogs and their volunteer owners are out and about bringing the superhuman power of animals to nursing homes and treatment programs, to the lonely and the sick, and to others who need the amazingly therapeutic, miraculously curative and positively uplifting powers of a cold wet nose.
On the first Saturday of every month at Pohick Library children have the opportunity to read to some of the PAL dogs. This month Remy joined the group, met some wonderful children and had a great time hearing stories like Bad Kitty and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid!
Below are two photos of Remy and his new friends!
PAL recently held a canine cruise as a thank you to all of their volunteers. Lacy and I joined the group for a fun cruise on the Potomac River. Lacy helped by acting as captain!
Several times each year PAL will hold Yappy Hours as fundraisers. Below are photos from the last Yappy Hour at Chef Geoff. The next Yappy Hour will be held on Wednesday August 26th at Chef Geoff.
