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

Finally, her Royal Highness arrived, walking the catwalk as she does so well. Actually, I’m not sure if she’s a boy or a girl. That dog in the background doesn’t seem to give a hoot that there’s a cat right in front of him!
