Internet Woes, Rainy Days and a Compassion Without Borders Fundraiser!

It has been quite the week of tech woes - no internet, then sporadic internet - plus the accidental permanent deletion of hundreds of photos on my phone, including ALL the photos I took of the great family visit this past weekend!  So bummed about that.  I was able to retrieve a few from a video I made.  Ever since I had the latest update done to my iPhone, I'm still learning the new layout - so deleting the photos was MY BAD.  

Had a fantastic time at a great fundraiser for the amazing rescue group Compassion Without Borders today - sooooooo many dogs there - so hard to leave without one!  

Lots of rain this week and it is starting to feel almost like the "old days" in Sonoma County with real rainstorms!  I love it but the donkeys aren't too keen on the mud (GONE are the "dust baths") and the general wetness.  Luckily they have lots of shelter options now with the new barn!

So much fun at the Compassion Without Borders fundraiser event!  I went with my two bunny gal friends!

Everything there was vegan - even the dessert!

So many adorable dogs!

And fantastic t-shirts for free with price of admission!

I got to sit in the back seat with Bridget the dog!
Vegan chocolate chip cookies!

The dogs wore name tags, too.

This organization does amazing work in Mexico and elsewhere.

Discovered this great organization, too - want to find out more about them.
Cuteness overload!

GASP!  So adorable.

Here are a few photos I was able to "save" from the Tomashefsky visit.  We had a wonderful breakfast prepared by Snap and a great walk around the Luther Burbank gardens.
