We had the Always and Furever Animal Sanctuary (mostly an old dog rescue) event last weekend - the 0.1K Howl-o-ween doggie dash!  Everyone dressed up for the occasion...



Then, excitement of excitement, we had health insurance enrollment at work and some PR person thought a tub of blue ear keychains was a good idea...



I mean, swag is swag, but it kinda looks like they took out an entire village of Smurfs...
