November 15th, 2018 the state of MN assembled for a huge giving effort for nonprofits called Give to the Max. Ruff Start Rescue had touched base with me earlier in the year at Athletes for Animals about being part of their event in the fall. Whoosh went the time and we were situated in Stanley’s in Minneapolis with a table full of silent auction swag, a dog friendly patio with smooches for pooches, tasty brews and food and some intense trivia as well as awesome DJ skills of DJ Kirkabee (she’s pretty awesome, I mean she had me at Safety Dance).

Plus there was a whole slew of pups who stopped out for scratches and tasty dog items from the menu. And of course treats from me! Plus got to meet an adorable shortstack named Konig (and check out those little teef!)

Thank you everyone who was part of Give to the Max this year! (And Lexi for the faces haha!)
