Almost Home?

Hudson and Murphy are almost home! And honestly, Hudson is wearing Murphy and Papi out with his constant, “Are we there yet, are we there yet, are we there yet???” Yes, Hudsy, you are almost There Yet! And wait until you get there. What fun is in store for you and all the people who have fallen in love with you and Murphy over the last two years. And just think, maybe you won’t have to wear booties for a while. (Shall we spoil it for him and tell him that he and Murph will be in black tie and tails Saturday night? Naw … let it be a surprise!)

Speaking of Saturday night and the Gala ...

Registration for Gala is Reopened – In the last 2 Dogs 2 Day I said the registration for the Gala had closed and that tickets would be available at the door. Well, I got part of the story right. The registration had been closed but due to popular demand REGISTRATION for the GALA has been REOPENED and will stay open until FRIDAY! Yeah! But if you’re going to the Gala, please reserve your tickets NOW. I can’t stress this enough. If you want a seat at the table (quite literally), you need to register for the Gala here . Ginger needs a head count for the chef, like yesterday.

Oh, and the part I got wrong? There will be only a very limited number of tickets available at the door. Ginger couldn’t stress this enough. Because the Copley needs to know how many people they will be feeding Saturday night, we can only offer a very few tickets at the last minute. This makes sense, right?

So, please, if you’ll be breaking bread with us at the Copley at the Puppy Up! Gala Saturday evening, and you haven’t already put in your reservations, please get your reservations in now. If for some reason you can’t register on the site, please email Ginger and register through her at: Like Ginger said, “If I don’t know they’re coming, they might not get it!” So register on-line or email her to assure yourself a delicious dinner and great evening at the Puppy Up! Gala. If you do email Ginger, (and please try on-line reservations first), put in the subject line “Registering for Gala.” This little piece of information will be a big help to her as she sifts through the hundreds of emails she gets. Whether you order through the site or via Ginger, you will need to provide the following:

choice of dinner (chicken, vegetarian, or children’s plate), your first and last name, street address, city, state, country, phone number, zip code, email address, and credit card information.

If you have already registered, you’re fine. You’re ‘in the system’ and your tickets will be under your name at the door. Yes, we have your number! So you needn’t do the panic dance. But if you haven’t reserved your tickets, please do so now. Thanks!

Pictured from top to bottom: Frog Pond in the Boston Common; walking though the almost 50 acres of the Boston Common -- dating from 1634, it is one of the oldest city parks in the country; the Parkman Bandstand, built in 1912 and restored in 1996, where many of the Puppy Up! Festivities will take place. We hope to see you there!
