It was a fund-raiser--"Strut Your Mutt"--put on by Best Friends Animal Society. P-Dub and MSB raised money to help homeless dogs and cats in the Los Angeles area. (Way to go, guys!) An army of animal-lovers and dogs (mutts and purebreds alike) hit the trails at Will Rogers State Park, raising more than $592,000 for the cause. They are sooooo close to reaching their goal of $600,000.
(The pug on the left looks SO much like my Mu Shu, but it's just a pug Pao met on the trail.)
"Best Friends" is one of the best--and largest--animal advocacy groups in Los Angeles, with dozens of terrific programs: They fund low-cost and no-cost spay and neuter clinics. They help educate people on responsible pet ownership. They help relieve overcrowded L.A. city shelters by rescuing animals. And they run a no-kill shelter for cats and dogs.
Here's Med School Bestie (on the left) with some of his friends:
Doesn't he have the cutest smile?:
I meant the man (but my dog can smile, too):
Pug and Man. Raising money for a humanitarian cause. They're my Pug-Man-itarians!
