One Day. Two Spooky Events. Lots of fun!

Candy, costumes and my favorite, BLACK CATS!  It must almost be Halloween time.



Let me tell you about two local events that both support a good cause.  Spookily enough, both of these events take place on the same day: Saturday, October 26th, 2013!


In the AM: Monster Dash

This fun run for education goes to support the Ashland Schools Foundation.  If you’re like me and prefer a brisk jaunt through the park, then the 1 mile run/walk might be for you.  For those with a little more cheetah in them, the 5k or 10k run around the perimeter of Lithia Park may be more up your alley.  There will even be a costume contest to kick off the day starting at 9:30 AM at the Park Bandshell.  To register, use your paws to follow this link:


In the PM: Puss n’ Boots Ball

This is the 22nd annual Puss n’ Boots Costume Ball and Auction, put on by the Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS) at the Ashland Armory from 5-11PM.  It’s all about dressing up in costume, dancing the night away and eating (my favorite part)…plus helping out all our furry friends in need at the Jackson County Animal Shelter!  You could even dress up like me, MO!  Tickets can be purchased through


Both these events are super fun for the whole family.  If you get to go to either event, I’d love to see pictures, so please post them on our Facebook page: and LIKE us!
