The Dog-Gone Fur Ball!


Craig HerreraDATE: Saturday evening, April 4th.

PLACE: Great America Centennial Parking Lot, an extra-large tent.

MISSION: Dress up your furry little pet, mostly dogs, and head to the Fur Ball 2008 to benefit the Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV).

Oh what a fun night! When else can you dress up your pet, oh, and yourself, and all go out for a fun night together. A night when the event is about the pets, the treats, the love and a time to help those who help our furry little friends that end up in shelters.

This was my third year involved with this exciting event, as Grand Marshall and this year sideshow to the King and Queen of the Fur Ball, Steve Wosniak and Kathy Griffin. Steve and Kathy were so much fun, but it was the little pets, dressed in their gala-best that made so many people say, “Ahhh, how cute!” My hats off to the 450+ people who attended and helped raise over $200,000.00 for HSSV! That money will all help so many animals who somehow land up at the shelter. Sasha, my Lhasa Apso was also there and danced, played and made new friends. Sasha is a rescue dog and I could not image life with out her. We also have a Rhodesian Ridgeback, also a rescue dog, but she did not go to the ball. No this is not a Cinderella story, Tess did not go to the Fur Ball because she is now over 12-years old and likes to stay home and sleep. So Sasha and Lollie became friends. Lollie belongs to my friend from work, Kathy and her husband Michael. We all had so much fun, and by the end of the night we were all tired. I think this photo of Lollie sums it up!
