Critters (and Couture) for the Cure
Critters for the Cure recently held their 2nd Annual Critters (and Couture!) for the Cure, a gala fashion event that raises awareness and funds for women’s cancer.
In addition to the fashion show, attendees enjoyed cocktails, appetizers, a luxury raffle, dutch appeal, live auction and shopping. Ten beautiful women cancer survivors and their pups worked the "catwalk" in spring fashions by Bloomingdale’s and Doggie Couture. Critters for the Cure also honored unique individuals that have personally supported women's cancer.
Their "It Takes A Village" Service Award was presented to Senator Barbara Mikulski for her efforts for and support of women's health and cancer issues. Several of the DCDogFinders breeders attended the event and were happy to donate a marvelous puppy basket for the raffle.

Annual Walk for the Animals
Thank you for helping to make the 16th Annual Walk for the Animals a success!! Despite the rain, almost 500 walkers and several hundred dogs participated to show their support for AWLA and raising over $92,000!
Everyone who came enjoyed a morning of excitement that included an agility demonstration by WOOFS! Dog Training Center, a demonstration by Deputy Grubar and Varius from the Arlington County Sheriff's Dept. K9 Unit, and a demonstration on how to take down a bad guy by Fort Myer Kennels Military Working Dog Team with their dog Brutus.
Our sponsors set-up wonderful booths distributing beneficial information and other materials. And of course there was the walk itself! Everyone was invited to join our three shelter dogs - Daisy, Icey and Thomas - on a 3-mile walk or 1-mile stroll. It was a fun time for everyone who came.
Thank you to Barry Altman, Ryan Turpenoff and Peter Del Toro for taking some fantastic pictures of the morning. You can view the album to see the pictures taken.

Santa Visits DCDogFinders
The North Pole
Christmas is all about the kids. Two years ago we invited Santa to hand out the puppies to the children who were getting them for Christmas.
Needless to say, it was a big hit for the kids … of all ages. Last year we did it again and it was an even bigger hit.
This year Santa will be back and it looks like we can safely say that it has become an official DCDogFinders holiday tradition.
Ho, ho, ho!!

Hope these pics make it through. What a sweet girl she is. We're calling her Bailey. She did pretty well in the laundry room last night. I think she got us up about 4 times but usually settled back down fine. She's very clingy right now but I'm sure she will settle in and feel more confident soon. Our daughter is thrilled and a little scared of her which is funny for such a little dog. So far so good! :-)
Merry Christmas and thanks for raising such wonderful pups!
Hi DCDogFinders, hope you are well!I just wanted to send a note about how happy we've been with our Cavachon, Botwin! (formerly Charles) It has been so rewarding raising him and making him a part of our family. Here's a couple photos from our Christmas card!Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the helpful information about our new puppy! We love Teddy (formally Tucker) so much! He's been such an incredible dog and we've only had him for a day! Teddy has adjusted to all of my family, my mom, brother and dad fell in love with him the moment they saw him. He's had a few accidents here and there, but he's been using the puppy training pads so it is definitely manageable! He loves the play pen and whined a bit at night, so I slept in our living room next to him and he stopped immediately. He truly is a sensitive dog that is curious and sweet. We are so thankful you brought him into our lives because we know he's a true blessing. I attached a photo of him all curled up sleeping on the floor lol! He's so cute! We will keep you posted of any issues, but I don't foresee Teddy doing anything that could be bad! HahaThanks again!
Thank you for everything! Little 'Bella' is doing great - she has been hungry, playful & loving. She is a bundle of joy & couldn't be any cuter!!
I am writing to tell you how excited we are to have 'Topher" renamed "Koko" by my 6-year-old son, as part of our family. He is such a wonderful dog. I can't imagine our family without him. We had Santa surprise the children in the park. He brought the letter my son wrote to him requesting a puppy for Christmas. My children ages 6 and 2 were beyond excited. They said Santa chose the most perfect puppy for them. Now, everyone that meets this puppy wants one. He is not only beautiful, but he has the best temperament of any dog I have ever met. He is just perfect. I wanted to thank you and everyone I had contact with at DC Dog finders. I researched what type of dog would be best for my family for many months, and put in the same amount of effort into deciding where I should purchase him. I live in Pennsylvania so I had to do my research. You were so knowledgeable and made sure I had all the information necessary prior to leaving. It's obvious the passion you all have for what you do, and it shows in our puppy's personality. We were so impressed by the surroundings in which the puppies were raised. What a beautiful set up. We couldn't be happier.Thank you for everything and for making our Christmas extra special.
Here's a quick note just to let you know that Bella has adjusted amazingly fast to her new home.She is on a great schedule and is eating, drinking, playing, going potty mostly outside and of course, giving me lots and lots of love.Thank you so much for allowing me to add her to my life.We are both extremely happy and are adjusting well.Promise I will send pictures!Again thanks for all you do!Fondly,
Bella and Rita
