Toby ‘n Darby – Ready for Halloween!
Sunday afternoon, Ananda and I doubled our pleasure: Another get-together with James and Kathy, foster parents to Darby Doo of Devonshire, and a chance to meet their newest foster Lab, Toby, the young yellow Lab mix who is pictured below wearing Halloween colors and a dapper hat. Darby Doo also got in the picture–literally–dressed in her ghostly graveyard get-up (above). Both pooches were exemplary models, making my “job” embarassingly easy.
We’ll be entering Darby and Toby’s costume photos in the PetSmart Halloween photo contest, running now on Facebook. Each week, from now until October 27th, the photo with the most Facebook votes will win a $500 PetSmart gift certificate which, if we should be so fortunate to win, we’lll donate to Golden Gate Lab Rescue. We submitted the photo of Ghost Dog Darby today but it appears it takes 24 hours for the entry to actually show up on PetSmart’s Facebook page. So check back here tomorrow to get a direct link to Darby’s entry photo and to start voting. You can vote once per day per photo, so make sure you vote for Darby each day for the remainder of this week, and be sure to tell all your friends to vote too!
Next Monday, we’ll submit Toby’s Halloween photo and the voting process will begin all over again for the new week. It’s all for a wonderful cause and only takes a minute of your day to vote. (P.S., you do need to have a Facebook account to vote, so if you don’t already have one, this is a great time to start!)
