Wednesday, May 11th, 2011 -

Ruff’s Easter Brunch was another great success this year!!

We had some new faces, and our regulars. This is such a great event so please tell all your friends and mark your calenders for next year. Also, don’t forget RUFF usually has a Thanks Giving dinner at Tivoli Terrace in November.

Sue,  Shelly and the board members from Ruff did a great job organizing everything. Kate from Tivoli Too! was managing the event, and did an awesome job.

A BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers who made it happen, and of course everyone who came.

We really enjoy donating our services to RUFF. Bob loves to entertain all the doggies………..oh and their humans of course!!

Remember, if you’d like to volunteer for RUFF (Rescuing Unwanted Furry Friends) contact them: www.ruffrescue.org

RUFF’S Easter Brunch is held every year at Tivoli Too! in Laguna Beach. Tivoli Too! is a fabulous place to have any event. Especially a wedding. It has such a romantic atmosphere, with fountains, statues and a waterfall cascading down the canyon.

This is ‘Lucy’ with her humans ;) Check out her outfit change later on. You’ll have to see if you can recognize her.

This is Sue on the far left and her husband Shelly on the far right. With the help of the other board members they put together the whole Easter Brunch and the Thanks Giving Dinner every year, and what an amazing job they do. They work so hard for the animals and give so much of their time. The lovely lady in the middle volunteers every year, and I’m really bad at remembering names!!!

Here’s Lucy’s outfit change! Cute!

Wonderful volunteers…..Thank You!!!

RUFF FUNDRAISER (Tivoli Too! April 4th 2010)

Sunday, May 9th, 2010 -

Another great Easter Brunch on April 4th 2010 at Tivoli Too! in Laguna Beach to help raise money for RUFF (Rescuing Unwanted Furry Friends).

About 350 plus people showed up and enjoyed the good food provided by June Neptune from Tivoli Too!, and the great entertainment from Bob from American Mobile Music as he sang for the animals. His vocal tributes to all the classic singers were a big hit as the doggies dragged their humans onto the dance floor and barked along with him while they danced their hearts out!!

The volunteers did an amazing job taking care of everyone.

RUFF had some of their 3rd chance doggies there from the Irvine Animal Shelter to find good homes for. I know some of them were adopted, which was fantastic!!

Do not buy a dog, you can get any breed you want from a rescue, it’s the ONLY way to go.

Again, due to the recession the number of attendees was down from the usual.  If you would like to support, volunteer or donate to this wonderful charity please go to www.ruffrescue.org or call (949) 580-1092

RUFF FUNDRAISER (Tivoli Too! April 12th, 2009)

Saturday, May 30th, 2009 -

‘RUFF’  is a wonderful organization dedicated to  ‘Rescuing ‘Unwanted ‘Furry ‘Friends. Every year we donate our services to their Easter Brunch which they hold at Tivoli Too! in Laguna Beach on Easter Sunday. It’s open to the public so anyone can go, and reservations are suggested. The champagne brunch is fantastic, and the food is delicious. June Neptune, the owner of  Tivoli Too! donates a lot of the food also. Volunteers from RUFF work hard serving the brunch.

Bob has been entertaining at RUFF’S Easter Fund Raiser for 8 years during the brunch with his amazing tributes to all the classic singers such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Neil Diamond and Barry White, just to name a few. Then a little bit later on, he gets all the doggies and their companions out there on the dance floor, and he sings “What’s New Pussy Cat”, for all the cats, and plays “Who Let The Dogs Out”, for the doggies. Yes…………………… there is one particular cat who attends every year, and is so cute, he’s more like a dog!!!

A lot of people who attend this are regulars, they come every year as they have so much fun and are big fans of Bob, they get entertained while helping the animals.  There’s also a silent auction, plus the cutest puppies who need adopting.

But, due to the recession the number of attendees was down from the usual.  If you would like to support, volunteer or donate to this wonderful charity please go to www.ruffrescue.org  or call (949) 580-1092

Scroll down for some great shots I took, plus a video of the doggies dancing on the dance floor while Bob sings for them!!

I love the expressions on these doggies faces, the one in the back looks like he wants to go dance,  but is thinking, “I’ve shaved my back legs but, darn……. I forgot to shave my front ones!!!” The one in the middle, “What am I doing here??” The one in the front…………..”I could be riding in the car with my head out the window and my doggles on listening to Bob’s CD!”

cimg4296-medium

These 2 attend every year………they are very loyal to RUFF.

cimg4297-medium

So does she……………….another pretty in pink.
