CILRA attended DOGTONA!, Hendricks County Humane Society’s annual fundraiser. It was good to be back at events and talk with people about all the great work we do.

DOGTONA! is always a party with lots to see and do for both humans and canines … Sheriff Dept K-9 demos, any-dog dog show (best dressed, best kisser, best ears … you get the idea!) and games for dogs to play. This year Dixie the Praying Dog also attended – check out our video of Dixie making rounds at the event! Dixie making the rounds at Dogtona

We had a great day, meeting new friends and catching up with friends we haven’t seen in a while. Thank you to Lexa and Jim M. and their dog Daisy, Jan C. and Kate M. for staffing the CILRA booth. We were also delighted to see Rikki and Todd E. and their beautiful dogs with friend Rob T.; Keith G. was also there with TTirado, his retired explosive detection canine who worked at the Indianapolis International Airport for 8 years with TSA. (The video of TTirado’s last call at his retirement party was pretty special:

It was wonderful to catch up with everyone and meet new friends interested in CILRA!
