Dining with the Dogs

This evening I attended the 2nd Annual Dining with the Dogs Fundraiser with my Luggage of Love Board members. All proceeds from this event went to supporting the National Police Dog Foundation, the Ventura County Sheriff's Department's K-9 Search and Rescue
Team and the Sheriff Department's K-9 unit, all of which depend on private funding in order to operate. The event was at the beautiful Camarillo Ranch and was complete with booths, live music, and both live and silent auctions. Most of my day was spent walking Magnum, a young german shepherd who will soon begin training to become a police dog. All of the attendees had the opportunity to play and interact with the dogs one-on-one and there were several live demonstrations held throughout the evening. The highlight
of the night for many was when our Sheriff of Ventura County, Geoff Dean, threw on the body suit and jumped in the "rink" for a few rounds with one of the Ventura PD K-9 dogs. What an amazing event for a worthwhile organization.
