Happy Friday!

Lint Roller Party '08

The rain has ended and we'll be back to work in the garden this weekend. I am SO excited. Also, we have a great benefit we'll be attending tonight- if you're in town, you should join!

Their tag line... Dare to Wear Black. The exciting part of this event is that one can actually take their canine companion with them! I'll don my favorite little black dress and can't wait to adorn one of my dogs with her pearls.

The evening features vegetarian hors d'hoeuvres, open bar, live music, and a silent auction. The party is all to help the LifeLine Animal Project, which is an Atlanta non-profit group working to end pet overpopulation and the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable dogs and cats in Atlanta shelters (we have WAY too many animals in shelters). LifeLine focuses on promoting adoption offering affordable spay and neuter services, and education. AND, they have a new effort with Dekalb Animal Cops to fight animal cruelty (and save the victims). There are lots of sad stories out there and while I can't read them (I get just too depressed) it's a great to support.

Yep, lots of posts about dogs this week and one more next week! What can I say, they have my heart. And, it is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

Have a great weekend!
