The Third Annual Mutt Strut Poker Run was once again a terrific time for people and pups. The weather couldn't have been better, the route along the lake was beautiful, and the party at Timber Cove beach was great fun. Many walkers won a great prize, and we raised over $1500 to benefit the ACT spay/neuter program and the El Dorado County Animal Shelter.

Thank you to the Timber Cove Marina for supporting the closing party, and Fast Print, Pandora's Trunk, Pazazz, Simplicity Spa and Salon, Dog Dog Cat, Avatar Financial, Hot Cha Cha, Resort Sports Network, Sidestreet Boutique, and Sunsational Tans for sponsoring the event.
