Snapshot Meme: Tails and Trails

Posted on: May 30, 2014

Saturday Snapshot invites bloggers to share photos. Two weekends ago, my husband and I took our two dogs to the local Tails and Trails event, which is hosted every May by the Capital Humane Society. After we first arrived, we walked around a couple of times to take in all the people with dogs, the pet venues, and the food options. Eventually I mustered up my nerve to start saying hello to folks and to ask permission to take pictures. Can you tell my favorite sights were the dogs? 🙂

And the older ones, like this fifteen-year-old Sheba.

There was even an invisible dog!

We collected dog treats from vendors.

Also, this lady with her adorable dog convinced me to try a vegetarian meal.

My husband took time to help demo agility.

After which, we needed some doughnuts. All proceeds went to support animal rescue.

Speaking of which, we bought coasters and other merchandise to support the causes.

I also met up with a writing friend who had just adopted a dog from a local foster dog group.

Last I heard, these pit bulls were still looking for homes.

There are also plenty other dogs who could use a home. Check out your local rescue. 🙂 Support no-kill shelters!

Thanks for sharing, it sounds like a worthwhile event. Have given you a mention on Face Book. That small black dog is my favourite. Found you via Jenni Bost’s Saturday Snapshot linky.

Thanks for shout-out! Promotion is always appreciated.

My husband and I first attended Tails and Trails to show off our foster dog who needed a home. Now that we’ve adopted him, we attend the event for fun and to help support all the local rescue causes. 🙂

Saturday Snapshot and Six-Word Saturday are my favorite memes. Through them, I have developed some regular contact with the book blogging community. Thanks for the visit!

What a great cause! I so love dogs of all shapes and sizes. Thanks for sharing these photos!

You’re welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed the photos.

What a great event. Looks like a super day out. All the dogs are so cute. I would love a dog, though I think it might upset the cats.

You might be right. I know our adopted dog has done a lot to upset our cat. 🙂

Beautiful photos! You did a great job of showcasing a variety of dogs. I hope a lot of money was raised for these worthwhile causes.

I don’t know the figures for that day, but do know a lot was raised for pet causes in the same month on our town’s annual “Give To….” day. Whatever is raised on that day gets doubled.

Great photos! I’m glad you were brave at taking photos. That chap in the red shirt is proving the adage that people look like their dogs….

I almost lost my nerve at the first photo. The guy struggled to get his dog to pose and asked me if needed more shots. I glanced at my photo, said no but thanks, and hurried back to my husband.

Eventually, my nerves settled and I started to enjoy chatting with all the dog folks. I even promoted our local dog group. 🙂

What fun! Each dog definitely shows its personality….thanks for sharing.

Here’s MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

I enjoyed the blast to the past in your photos. Thanks for sharing pictures of one of the places where you used to live.

Looks like an awesome event. You did a great job photographing each of the dogs and their personalities. Looks like everyone had a great time and hopefully some of the dogs found new homes!

Just to clarify…. most of the dogs I featured were with their owners. However, there were also rescue groups there with dogs who needed homes.

I promoted them on my Facebook too. If enough people spread word of their need, maybe some of them will soon find their forever home. 🙂

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:
