Roses for Rescue

Yesterday was a big day for LBR! (So big that I couldn't get my mom to wake up to type this entry for me. Sheesh!) It was Roses for Rescue, the biggest fundraiser in LBR's year! We have zillions of Tyler roses and all sorts of other wonderful flowers, like gorgeous geraniums and gigantic ferns. The hardworking LBR volunteers spend the whole day in the sun, loading and unloading, toting and carrying, and of course working those sales!


This is Ken and Waylan, the awesome volunteers responsible for the whole show!


The ferns were huuuuge!


Of course, we have to bring some dogs to show everyone what it's all about! This alert guy is Tux.


This is Cayenne. Mom said she was sooooo cute and little!


We also have a lot of alums show up! Like Keebler.


This is pretty Betxi getting lovings!



Our volunteers worked really hard all day. But in the end, it was totally worth it. We ended up making over $19,000 to help LBR dogs! WOW!!! That helps keep a lot of dogs in kibble and vet care. Thanks so much to all our wonderful volunteers, and to everyone who came out for roses! Big slobbery boxer kisses to everyone!
