Got a special Saturday post for you guys. Mom’s friend, Heather, works with Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue. They have a special event coming up, so I decided I’d interview Heather for my blog and tell you about the event.
Me: Tell me about the event you have coming up.
Heather: We’re hosting a Yappy Hour at Vincenza’s Italian Bakery & Deli on July 12 from 6 – 9 PM. Yappy Hour is a happy hour where our Cocker Spaniels bring their people to socialize. A complimentary beer or wine and appetizers will be served. Since we will be outside on their patio, all furry friends are welcome. Here’s the invite: Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue’s First Yappy Hour
Me: What’s the mission of Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue?
Heather: Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue is a non-profit group dedicated to saving Cocker Spaniels from being euthanized and to promote the breed. Yappy Hour is one way we can get donations from people while, at the same time, having a fun social event.
Me: How did you get involved with Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue?
Heather: My husband, Tim, and I had a cocker spaniel early in our relationship. Lady was Tim’s dog when I joined their house. She was in our lives for a number of years before having to be put down due to cancer. While we were in Georgia, I happened to drop by the local county shelter (we had been kicking around getting a friend for our lab/rotty). I met Fozzy Bear and immediately fell in love. We adopted Fozzy and brought him back to Denver with us. That following summer, we were at the dog event at the Botanic Gardens and came upon a booth for the Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue. After talking to them for a while, we decided to volunteer to be fosters. Shortly after we got our first foster dog (Charlie Brown), our Fozzy died suddenly from liver failure. We ended up adopting Charlie and later, Beauregard – the RMCR’s mascot dog. In the past two years, we have had over 25 dogs in our house and have helped find them all forever homes.
Me: You found homes for over 25 dogs in two years? How pawsome! Thanks for stopping by to tell us about Yappy Hour. I hope you get a full house!
So pals, if you’re in the Denver Metro area, please join Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue for Yappy Hour on July 12th at 6PM. And whether or not you’re in Denver, please help me spread the word. It’s a fun event for a great cause!
