Remember I told you I was escorting Lily to an event? Well, that happened yesterday. It was called Purses for Pooches and raised money to help animals. There was a luncheon, a purse fashion show and purses auctioned.
Me? I was one of two or three men there, but my Lily needed me so I went.
First thing I had to do was confer with my mother-in-law. She was running the registration table but she needed a little Mighty Lou advice to start her day.
Once I got her under control I moved on to other things needing my attention. Most important was guarding my Lily as she slept. She took a moment out to get a beauty catnap and I made sure no one bothered her.
Next on the agenda was to check and make sure our table was set properly. I made sure we had a table with nice people.
These ladies loved your old Mighty Lou and spent a lot of time adoring me. They were really nice and they have cats. One of the ladies has a special needs cat so we had a lot in common. Take a look at the special needs kitties in my Friends Like Me Program.
Lunch was being served…
…but I didn’t mind. I just let the waiters serve around me.
Not a real fan of iced tea.
I prefer bottled water in my own bowl, but thank you anyway.
Lunch was a nice salad and quiche. Yes, real cats eat quiche! But my Aunt Mary gave me some turkey, too.
It was a little overcast when the day started but the sun came out soon enough. Mom and I wore our matching shades.
The real reason I attended this event was to be with Lily. She was one of the purse models on stage so I had some waiting time. I did a little window shopping for something for Lily. I thought I would get her something nice to remember the day.
Upon closer inspection of the prices, I was forced to say….
”No thanks, Saks!”
Miss Tracey is the President of the Board for Lily’s organization. I met her dog, Lola, in front of Saks. Pretty cute for a dog.
Enough of this waiting. It was time to do what I came to do; give my Lily a gift to remember this day. We picked a quiet place, away from all the fashion show activity. She was pretty in pink and tickled pink to see me!
There she is, my little cutie. I have her a pretty pink purse, just her size. And I gave her a locket for her pretty neck. It has my picture in it so I will always be close to her heart. Doesn’t she look pretty?
All in all it was a great day. But I’ll tell ya, Dude – girly fashion shows and quiche are not much for the man in me. I liked it because Lily was there. But next time she’s going with me to a monster truck show or something!
Am I right?
Until next week!
