Last weekend I had the opportunity to dust off my camera equipment after a two month personal hiatus. Neponset Valley Humane Society had their 17th annual Walk For Animals in Borderland State Park and I couldn’t have been happier to attend. Borderland State Park has been around since the late 1800′s early 1900′s and the venue, which includes an ancient estate, is just amazing.
Though the morning started out with overcast skies, fog, heavy rains and chilly temperatures (seems to be the norm around here these days), it didn’t keep people from coming out with their dogs to help raise money for the shelter and the animals lucky enough to find themselves in the shelter’s care.
I love shooting events like this; like minded people, dogs everywhere, what more could a girl ask for?
How adorable is this little Pug mug shake? I really wanted to steal this little guy.
We were visited by a Red Tailed Hawk. He landed in a tree so close to us I thought he might have been stalking the little dogs.
But once he saw the big dog body guards, he didn’t stick around for long.
There were raffles, snacks and balloon animals. I haven’t seen balloon animals since, well, since I was a kid. Brought back a lot of memories.
Judy, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your fundraiser. I had such a great time and I plan on heading back to Borderland to investigate the acres and acres of forests, waterways and particularly to tour the estate library. The history is intriguing.
