Mutts & Mimosas 2019
by Lee Chambers
The sun shone brightly at Mutts & Mimosas on Sunday, September 22 at Quonquont Farm in Whately. The event began with the Dakin Humane Awards, which were presented for the first time in several years. (Click here to see our honorees!)
Before long everyone was mingling inside and outside, enjoying our raffle of terrific gift items, custom-made mimosas and a delicious vegetarian brunch provided by Seth Mias (dogs enjoyed their own brunch as well!). Banish Misfortune offered sweet melodies, dogs were put through their paces in agility training sessions and pet caricatures were sketched out.
Attendees took advantage of the perfect weather to stroll up to the farm stand to buy freshly-picked apples (or took to the orchards to pick some themselves), and let their dogs enjoy a good romp in the pastoral setting.
We thank everyone who joined us as well as our sponsors: Quonquont Farm, Finck & Perras Insurance Agency, Forget Me Not Florist, ibby & Eric Photography (who took all these beautiful photos), VCA, Coldwell Banker Upton-Massamont Realtors, Ramon Financial Services and Elizabeth Collins & Brian Banks. Thanks also to the many volunteers who helped make this day such a success.
