Yesterday Brain and I got to host one of our favorites events of the year: Dog-O-Ween! With the parvo outbreak here in Cedar Rapids, we were lucky enough to be able to host this year's event down at the Theisen's in Coralville.

First of all, we want to thank Theisen's for being such wonderful hosts, and The Johnson County Humane Society for all of their support, as well. We even took some of the dog goody bags home for our pups! Also, shout out to Capturing Memories by Kayla for all of the wonderful photos you see on this page. And we, OF COURSE, have to thank all of our participants! We had a good turn out this year and we can't wait to do it again next year.
