Becky Aguirre, and daughters Ilennia and Felicitas, planned and organized the Yappy Days event as a fundraiser for ACARF patterned on a similar event held in Wichita.

The planning it was done, In miniscule detail. Nothing was forgotten; Yappy Days—it could not fail. The hot dogs were a heatin’, Prize baskets wrapped and bowed. Auction items were assembled, All were waiting for cars to unload. But—lo!—came Mother Nature, Without even an invite! She brought cold air and dampness And covered the bright sunlight. So much for all the planning, The ‘dogs and the pretty ties. When all was done and over, Mother Nature took First Prize. But Yappy Days took Second And that’s just not too bad! All had a good time. Made some money. We’re Glad! Thank you, Becky!

It might be her gorgeous, tuxedo-style



eyes. Look for pictures and descriptions of all available cats and dogs on our website

Perhaps it's





One of the most outstanding things about Angelina,

however, are her whiskers. They are very white against the very black background of her face; it's almost as if she chose them carefully to go with her coat. Angelina is a beautiful, unusual, and fabulously feminine cat. And she has the accessories to prove it!
