Relay for Life

Relay for Life was held in Crestview, Florida on Saturday.  
Spanky, my mother in law's pet, is the mascot of Southside Animal Hospital.  The staff chose Spanky as their mascot, to show their love for his owner, my friend and mother in law Glenda.  She is battling lymphoma and has had to leave Spanky at the animal hospital for extended periods of time because of the treatment she is undergoing.  
Here is the team's picture in the newspaper, with Spanky.

 Spanky needed to look extra cute for his big day.
I made him a little outfit to wear in the dog parade at Relay for Life.
A little hat befitting a cute Shih Tzu.

And a collar.

Oh Spanky, you are so cute!!!

Spanky, show off the back of your outfit.

Spanky won first place for his costume and second place in the dog race, and was awarded 2 trophies.  Way to go Spanky :)


  1. Oh, that outfit is just too funny. Great job and I know your support is very much appreciated. What a great cause and best wishes for a speedy recovery to your MIL. I know seeing Spanky all dolled up must have cheered her up considerably.

  2. What a great idea! I love Spanky's outfit, and he is an adorable dog too! good job!
