AlamedaSmallDogs donates to Pet-a-Palooza!

We were asked to donate an item for the silent auction that Autobody Fine Art is having today to benefit the Alameda Animal Shelter. It is their 3rd annual fundraiser, Dog Days 3 Pet-a-Palooza.

Look what we came up with...! It's a handmade reversible dog bed. One side is knitted, the other is crocheted. It is really soft and really comfy, and washable too! Drop in to Autobody Fine Art today between 1 pm and 9 pm to bid on this or one of the other wonderful items in the silent auction! The bed was designed and created by Irene Pakel and Carrie Isett.
