Oh, Deer! This month’s meeting of Bambi Local #100 will now come to order! “One of the many beautiful discoveries on a recent trip to Wales: the heart-shaped ‘Tocks of Fallow Deer, on the grounds of Dinefwr (dee-nuh-ver) Castle. Enjoy!” -Jennifer M.
[Well, I watched the hoomins do it- you STAND UP on it, and ride a wave. And then fall down and crash into the surf. Personally, I like just sliding off it better.]

The Rescue Train’s largest annual fundraising event, Race for the Rescues has raised over $2.5 Million to help save the lives of thousands of homeless animals in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. This day of fun includes a 5k, 10k, 1k Dog Walk and Kids Fun Run. There is also a “Couch Potato” Race for those that would like to donate from the comfort of their home. Participants can join as individuals or start a team. Dogs and cats will be available for adoption from local shelters.
Saturday, October 24, 2015 | Rose Bowl, Pasadena | Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. | The race begins at 8:30 a.m.
(You’ll also wanna check out “Ernie’s Angels.” Ernie was a big ol’ tabby who sadly passed away before the 2014 race. His hoomin has been matching every dollar raised by the race junior volunteer team. The goal is $2K which would then become $4K! See here.)
And here are some photos from last year’s event:
Trick or Treat is coming right up, after all. Hana falls for it more than once- Maru, not so much. His Roundness does score a quality Nose Boop, though.
Almost time for an annual Cute Overload tradition- coverage of The Annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade in New York City!
It’s this Saturday the 24th, Noon ’til 3pm ET, at the Tompkins Square Dog Run, on E. 9th, between Avenue A and B- see the Google Map below. (They request a $5 donation to enter the park -all proceeds raised will go directly back to Friends of First Run, who maintain the TSDR year-round.) If you’re going to the parade on Saturday, we’d love to see your photos!
And here’s what it looked like last year. Photos by Jason DeCrow/Invision for Beggin’/AP Images.

This Floppy & Furry Alaskan Malamute needs to understand exactly where he sits in the chain of command. As in, at the very top. Yet he lets himself get intimidaed by Mr. Tortoise-
