Owensboro Bark In The Park, Adoptable Dogs

Last Saturday, we participated in the Bark In The Park event here in Owensboro , Ky. 

Photo provided from Staci Scott
Bark In The Park or sometimes called Bark For Life  is an event to help raise money for the American Cancer Society. Canines and their companions came together to have fun and help raise money together. There were games to play, music to dance along with,  a silent auction and many area shelters were there with adoptable dogs.  Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we are working on the 2015 event.

These are some of the dogs that are available for adoption.
Please contact the shelters or rescues directly if you see one you are interested in. You can click their names to go directly to the dog's profile to find out more information.

Today is the day that people worldwide who love animals unite to light a candle for shelter pets. These are the pets who have lost their lives waiting for homes that never came, are waiting now for a home of their own and some are on a short turnover list, others are seniors who may only have a few months to a few years left.

I light my candle for my friends from the Owensboro Humane Society who never got their chance.

For Nadia, Rocky and Tank. 
The humane society was their final home. They received love from the staff and the volunteers but they never got the chance of a home of their own.

I light my candle for the Gunner's in the world. They are older, they have so much love to give but they are overlooked every time.
Gunner is still available.
Please consider adoption. 
Adopted pets seem to be more ready to please and they know that you saved them. 
If you can't adopt...Foster
If you can't Foster....Sponsor
If you can't Sponsor..Share
Everyone can do something.
Share those posts from your local shelters 
Sharing saves lives.

You can light a candle virtually

We Found Our Dresses at David's Bridal !

Yesterday, I wrote that I was headed to a fundraiser for OBG Cocker Spaniel Rescue at the end of the week and how I had to find the pawfect dress for this special occasion. You can read that post by visiting the link below. 

I am headed to #Hollywoof, baby!!!!! 

We have looked high and low for dresses that we all could wear but after searching for months we had almost given up in finding what we wanted and was starting to look at what each of us could wear. 

We decided to give it one more chance and head over to Evansville, Indiana to see what we could find. Evansville is around 45 minutes or more depending on traffic from our house. Sarah had the day off and Ma was having a good day with her MS  so we got up early and left. 

Beautiful day

It was a beautiful day. All week long we had grey skies and drizzle rain but today the sky was blue, fluffy clouds dotted the sky and the temperature was just right. 

*Please note that David's Bridal does NOT allow pets in the store nor do they have dresses or clothing for pets ,I am a medical alert service dog for my Ma. If you want to take your pet with you so they can give their approval to your selection of dress, please call the store in your location.* 

We arrived at David's Bridal. I know you probably wonder what we were doing at a bridal store but David's is much more than just bridal gowns. They have a large assortment of bridal gowns, wedding party, mother of the brides/grooms dresses, prom and more.... 
The one thing they also have an assortment of is evening wear. 
They have dresses that are appropriate for #WigglebuttGoHollyWoof occasions, cruises, dinner at a black tie event any type of special events.

Carma by the wedding gowns
As you see they have a very large selection of bridal gowns. Any size, any style, any length. Your dream of what you want to look like as a bride can be found here. 
Carma in the bridesmaid section

David's Bridal have a large selection of bridal party gowns. They have short styles, long styles, glitter, soft colors, any color , any style, any size. 
There are many mannequins with dresses on to let you see how some of the dresses look on. Sometimes its hard to know what a dress will look like when its hanging on a hanger. There were so many styles to consider that it was hard to choose.
One of the things that made David's Bridal unique was they have plus size Mannequins. They also have a large selection of plus size dresses whether its bridal dresses or special occasion dresses. This was why they stood out to us because sissy Sarah needs a fuller dress and other stores we had been it didn't have dresses that younger crowd could wear. They have many styles for many ages in plus sizes. So whether you wedding party or the bride themselves is a size 0 and up, they have the dress for you. 
The staff was so helpful. They asked about the event and general idea of what we wanted and they showed us the sections where we would find those style of dresses and they let us shop.. in peace! They came by to answer questions, make recommendation and to see if they could help us find something unique but they weren't overly helpful, if you know what I mean. 
We have visited some stores where the sales people stayed with you the whole time, pulling dresses, telling you this dress would be better than that one etc. and sometimes that is being too helpful. 
When they asked what are budget was they didn't gawk at us. They told us what their current specials were and unlike other stores they didn't try to get us to bust our budget. 
We seen some brides find their special dresses and they said Yes to their dress :)They got to ring a bell when they found their perfect dress! 
When I went to the bathroom with ma  I overheard a bride's mother talking to her daughter about how she loved the store too. She said it was refreshing that they were not trying to get the bride to buy a dress that was out of their budget. One bride did spend a little more for her dress than she originally wanted but her perfect dress was on sale and it was $100 over budget but she looked like an angel in it. She would look absolutely breathtaking on her special day. The dress was $300 off so she still got an excellent deal. 

So if you are looking for the perfect dress whether its a bridal or a special occasion, check out David's Bridal.
Visit their website to find a store near, look at their selection, get inspiration for your special day. 

We got our dresses and we couldn't be happier. 
Thank you David's Bridal and staff for the wonderful shopping experience. There are not too many stores that when you tell them a poodle needs a dress will help you find what you are looking for. I appreciate your staff. 
Now Ma just has to tailor my dress to fit me like it should. 
Stay tuned to see how she does it.

*I was not paid nor asked to do this review of David's Bridal store. We had a wonderful shopping experience and wanted to tell my readers about it. I , Carma Poodale, only share information that I feel my readers would be interested in. I actually asked the staff if it would be okay to give the review. I can not guarantee that David's Bridal has your size in stock. *
