Friends and family,
Hello! I am so excited to be participating in the Furry Scurry this year! Please donate and help homeless pets and horses at the Dumb Friends League by sponsoring us in the 27th annual Furry Scurry.
The Furry Scurry is a great Denver tradition that brings animal lovers together for a fun walk with a very important purpose: helping the Dumb Friends League care for thousands of lost, abandoned, abused and unwanted pets and horses, and giving them a second chance at happiness in a forever home.
If animals have brought you as much joy as they've given me, this is your opportunity to show some love to homeless pets and horses and change their lives for the better.
Thank you so much for helping me make a difference to homeless pets and horses. I appreciate your support!

More on Olive
As I mentioned, Olive has taught us a lot. Mainly in the area of dog training. She is high energy (no as high as some) so we are often having to keep her busy. I have learned so much on brain games for dogs! She is always fed out of some time of slow feeder or puzzle so she has to work for her food. We hide treats around the living room when she's bored and pacing. Sometimes we resort to letting her run laps around the outside of our house! She loves to run!
We've also learned about impulse control which actually has a large bearing on her behavior in general. Having her wait for her food, before eating, or wait at the door before bolting out are a couple of examples. This type of control teaches her to not immediately go for what she wants. Surprisingly, we can feed our Katy Cat, in her usual spot on the floor and Olive doesn't gobble up her food. She will stare at Katy while she eats but at least she isn't charging in and eating it! We try not allow her to stare at the cat either, cause that's just rude. Who wants to be stared at while they eat?
Training a dog is an ever learning process and we're having fun with it. Olive really is a blessing.

Crazy Girl Olive
It wasn't long after Turbo passed, that Crazy Girl Olive came along. I work at a vet hospital and she was a relinquishment. At only 5 months old she came in for her second foreign body surgery! The owner decided to relinquish. After a rough surgery, we helped her recover, and decided to keep her. She certainly works her way into your heart. She has a big personality and loves to play. She has learned a lot and taught us a lot as well! She will be joining us at the Furry Scurry, thus our team name, "Team Olive." Check out our team page to see her photo!

Good Ol' Turbo
I have been wanting to participate in the Furry Scurry for years and am very excited to be doing it this year.
My husband and I adopted Turbo from DDFL in 2013 and he turned out to be the best dog. He was scared and timid when we first brought him home. It wasn't till a year later that he fully came out of his shell. With in that year, he started wagging his little tail, talking, and playing. It was one of the best decisions we ever made.
Unfortunately he has sinced passed and we miss him a lot. He loved going for walks and would have been so good at the Furry Scurry! I have been a fan of DDFL, ever since adopting good ol' Turbo. They do good work.
