Since Barry has been rehabilitating a torn muscle and pinched nerve in his upper back for over a month now (he's improving at last, but it's been slow going), I've been having to do a lot of things solo lately.  Yesterday it was a bike ride into town to attend the Saga Humane Society's 9th Annual Halloween party and fundraiser in Central Park.  

There was something for everyone:  delicious donated homemade food, cold drinks, free biodegradable doggie poop bags and dog collars, t-shirts and jewelry for sale, raffle tickets to benefit Saga, and the highlight, a doggie costume contest full of the cutest pooches I've ever seen!  I couldn't take Paisley because of the difficulty getting her there with only my bicycle, but that made it much easier to take photos to try to capture all the fun everyone was having.  Hope you enjoy the slideslow!
I did my part to help by buying a Saga t-shirt (below), a bunch of raffle tickets (didn't win anything, but I never do), a delicious cupcake topped with marshmallow creme, and an ice-cold Belikin.  The service provided by volunteers was outstanding!
With all the dogs and cats Saga houses awaiting adoption, in addition to the many other services they provide the community, they are always in need of funds.  There was a great turnout for the party, so I suspect a good amount was raised for this excellent cause.  In addition to the Saga website, did you know they have a Facebook page as well?  Come on, give it a "Like"!

Also, make sure to check out San Pedro Scoop's Halloween Party blog for more party and costume contest pictures, because really, who can get enough of dogs in costumes?!

I found your blog from googling soursop, Belize it or not! I have read all of your posts (took awhile) and now I am up to date and was a little worried as there have not been regular posts lately. From today's post I understand that Barry has had an injury. Wish him a speedy recovery. I am coming to Belize in January for a month and I have done much searching on the internet and purchased two books on Belize. However, I must say that your blog has been very informative. I have enjoyed your little side trips and the pics of the food, most mouth watering. I am staying in Placencia but will probably do some day trips and I will be visiting Ambergris Caye. Perhaps we could meet and say hello. I live on the east coast of Canada and we are expecting some repercussions of "Sandy". I think we are getting some rain and high winds. I will follow your Blog untill my vist in January. Take Care.
