Yesterday, I worked at Pups in the Park at Nationals Stadium. Pups in the Park is a fundraiser for the Washington Humane Society. For an extra $5, Washington Nationals fans were allowed to bring their dogs to the game. The event is wildly popular and sells out every time.
It was so much fun! There were tons of dogs there, and they all had a great time. They sniffed and socialized and even had their own seats. (Seeing the dogs in the stands was absolutely hysterical!) I think they even had some hot dogs and nachos too . . .
Also, in attendance were a bunch of dogs who are available for adoption, who got lots of love and attention and a couple of solid adoption applications, which was exciting. People also donated a lot of money, which is always good.
Perhaps the highlight for me was getting my picture taken with Abe Lincoln, one of the Racing Presidents (the Nationals' mascots).
I hope the Nats will do Pups in the Park more often (and offer more dog tickets at each event). It raised money and awareness for a GREAT cause, and it's a really good time!
