A fun, non-quilty day!

Back in March, we adopted an Alaskan Malamute.  This is our 2nd Malamute.  We found Ratchet thru IAMRA (Illinois Alaskan Malamute Rescue Assoc).  Today they had their annual Malwalk fundraiser.  We attended with Ratchet.

The shaved patch on Ratchet's back is from heartworm treatments.  You can read about it here.   Ratchet has had all of his treatments, and, is waiting for his last test, the end of December.

We got to meet Ratchet's daughter, Callie.

There were lots of Malamutes and their owners.  They had raffles, food, and fun for everyone.  The dogs even got to 'bob for hot dogs'.  They all lined up for their turn.

I Got It!

It was fun to meet some new friends, and some old ones of Ratchets (he has been to these things in the past). 

Have a Great Weekend!


  1. What a neat day! The bobbing for hotdogs is new to me and a very cool activity for the dogs. Ratchet is a beautiful dog, as is his daughter. ~Jeanne

  2. That looks like so much fun! His daughter looks just like him and it's so cool that he knew people there that you didn't :)

  3. He is a beautiful dog. They looks so fluffy, and gentle.

  4. How fun! Looks like they all had a great time. Bobbing for hotdogs sounds challenging ; )

  5. It looks like Ratchet is doing great! His daughter looks just like him! How much fun!
