My dear wife Karen and I brought Ellie B, aka Dogamous Pyle, to two big doggie-themed events this past holiday weekend.
I marched her around the field as part of Bark in the Park at the Syracuse Chiefs’ NBT Bank Stadium, and we marched with the patrons of the Dog Gone Inn Doggie Day Car Center during the Memorial Day Parade in Manlius.
During both events, some of the dogs involved wore vests that carried the words “Adopt Me.”
There are many dog rescue organizations in Central New York, filled with hopeful and busy volunteers trying to give dogs with no homes love, and the chance to be matched with folks that can give them one.
Ellie B found us at such a rescue event three years ago this May. It was called Paws for a Cause. How glad I am there are people who do such things.

Have you ever owned a rescue dog? Do you have any friends or family who own rescue dogs? Have you gone to any events meant for folks to bring their dogs?
