Westies are very curious. So during the Westie with Santa event they tend to gather around me, climbing up and sniffing the tripods and camera gear, trying to steal my squeaky toy. (I will just not say what else they do with my tripods...). One of the visitors captured this fun photo of me. It's fun to be a celebrity!
Another beautiful day in fall made it difficult for Rudolph and his peers to get Santa and Mrs. Claus to the doggy day care in Burnaby for the Westie with Santa event on 23 November 2013. However, once arrived, they went into full swing to pose with the little white dogs. Some of the images may look like Santa just shared some cookies with them but he swears he did not. And Santa does not lie....
Westie Rescue of Canada organized a great event with Silent Auction, fun games, raffles, door prizes and a photo shoot with Santa and Mrs. Claus. They raised valuable funds to support the vet bills for some of their new rescues. Often West Highland White Terriers suffer from skin issues brought forward by feeding highly processed food. Once Westie Rescue of Canada takes on these little dogs, they care for them and cover the vet bills and arrange for foster homes until the dogs can be adopted out.
If you've ever had a West Highland White Terrier, you know that these are dogs with personality. So seeing about 50 of them milling around at the Doggy Day Care was great fun.
And, as last year, photographing Santa and Mrs. Claus with the little white dogs was a true pleasure.
Have a look at the gallery on my website to catch some of the spirit.
Last Sunday hundreds of people came together in Stanley Park for the annual SPCA Paws for a Cause event. On two or four legs the crowds moved around the park and enjoyed the lovely weather around Lumberman's Arch for the sign-up events or to watch the agility demonstration.
Check out my image gallery for this event that I quickly threw together.
Dog Smart did a fun demonstration of their Agility Training skills that drew the crowds. Agility is a family affair as you can see here. It joins your family in an activity that is fun and educating to all participants.
So get involved and comment below on how you experienced the SPCA Paws for a Cause event in Vancouver or elsewhere in the province or other humane society charity events this year.
