gracie & calendar2.

Hey, Gracie here. The new calendars just arrived yesterday, and, let me tell you, they are fantastic! I’d love to share it with you but have been sworn to secrecy until after the picnic! They will go on sale at York Vet this weekend, Glen Allen Day on Sept 21, THE PICNIC on Sept 22, and Neptune Festival from Sept 27-29, and at the South of the James Farmers Market on Saturdays. You will also be able to place orders shortly on our webpage, You don’t want to miss this issue (or THE PICNIC)!

Have I mentioned THE PICNIC? Want to have lots of fun (especially you four-legged readers), good food, golden love and friendship? Then mark your calendar for Sunday, Sept 22 at the Newport News Park from 1 to 4 pm at shelter #19. There will be games to play and treats to eat! You can catch up with old friends and make new ones, because let’s face it… most of you have never met another dog that wasn’t your immediate friend, right! Bring your people (big & small) and your canine siblings, even if they’re not Goldens. But please, leave the cats at home!

Lunch will be provided (hot dogs, burgers, chips and soft drinks) for this event. We also have beautiful art works by Sara England, merchandise with our logo, and 2014 SEVA GRREAT calendars for you to purchase. We would LOVE to see as many of our adopted Goldens and their families as possible!
