Dozens of dogs and their owners walked down Main Street together in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, raising awareness and donations. Farmingdale is a quaint Long Island village, with lots of wonderful restaurants and shops. We had so much fun meeting all the other dogs and their owners, and a few merchants as we paraded down Main Street and then hung out together on the Village Green. It was an awesome event and a great way to show support for an important cause!
|Lots of doggie lovin' went on all day!!|
Isis did some shopping at Thomas Ellen along the way, then stopped for a brief rest at The Nutty Irishman, a hugely popular Irish Pub!
|We made lots of new friends!|
|It's was a beautiful day & a great time for everyone!|
|Isis is convinced she found her Mini-Me, a gorgeous puppy named Anya!!|
