In case you hadn't heard, WE ARE OFFICIALLY GETTING A DOG PARK IN DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND! I received an email about this earlier this week, though it doesn't look like anything has been made public yet. Thank you to everyone who donated and made it possible for Cleveland's downtown pups to have a safe place to play.
Get all the official details on the DCA website and bring your dog down to play before winter comes!
This is going to be my only post for the week, as I will be busy at a conference the next two days and spending the evenings catching up on work. But what I discovered this evening needed to be shared immediately. Remember a few weeks ago when I shared my excitement about Barrio opening in downtown? Well, today I noticed that they are doing Food Truck Fridays, as if the anticipation wasn't already mounting.
If you look close you can see Woody's tail. I tried to get more of his reflection but he wasn't having it. Apparently he does not care about tacos.
...I hope it can be this. Pets and people come in all shapes and sizes. The difference is that pets do not judge the way people do.
This is quite possibly one of my favorite billboards ever. Not only is it getting Cleveland completely PUMPED for the upcoming Cavs season but it's an ad for STARTER! When's the last time you saw one of those?
There are days when I love my job more than others. Two Tuesdays ago was one of those days. My office brought in the Cleveland APL and Mason's Creamery for "Puppies and Ice Cream" in which we were able to enjoy a tasty sundae made from Mason's best flavors in exchange for donations to the APL. The APL volunteers brought in two adoptable dogs, Sissy Lee and Slinky, as well as a few kittens. I don't remember all of the cats' names, but I do remember an adorable little white one named Harold. I seriously love when animals have human names, by the way.
Our company as well as the team from the Holiday Inn (we share a building) raised $1,000 for the APL and brought more awareness to these loveable fur friends. Check out some of the pictures from the event below. Some were taken by me and a few others were taken by my co-worker Maggie (you can check out her stories at Twin Parenting). I'm not sure if these animals have been adopted, but regardless you can visit the APL's adoption pages to see all of the pets looking for good homes.
