The shelter staff, volunteers, and board members offered many congratulations and thanks and were all quite impressed with this community of ours. Rightfully so! You are impressive!
Here are some highlights from the day. I regret not getting better pictures of the event. It's kind of an intense day, and it's hard to remember to shoot when so much is going on.
All of the human members of Team IBKC wore matching tee shirts.
And Blixa wore a coordinating IBKC bandana.
We carried signs on the walk, and the folks passing us on the trail often yelled "we love cats!" in support.
Wylla wasn't the only kitty at Dog-A-Thon. Ninja Bob was there too, though he calls it "Bob-A-Thon". It's Bob's world, the rest of us just live here.
Cora entered Bob in the costume content. He was a martini.
"Drinks are on me!" says Bob.
Here's Craig touring the grounds with Wylla on his shoulder.
And here's some of the team walking the walk.
We were joined by our friend Lynn, mom of Zoubie (Zelda) Lamm. She dressed to coordinate with Wylla and carried her for part of the walk.
Lynn loves Wylla dearly, and an opportunity to carry her on the trail triggered tears of joy. Her husband Alex was there to document this happy moment.
At the half-way point, we stopped for a little break.
Wylla needed a little treat to maintain her stamina. Be carried for over a mile is exhausting!
And after we completed our victory lap, more treats for Wylla.
We sure had fun and felt you all walking with us in spirit! Next year, you really must join us!!
