Last year I went to "Wine and Wags," a fundraiser at the Maryland SPCA. Ostensibly it was an event to bring attention to the plight of so many dogs and cats in need of loving homes. On the grounds outside, dogs of every size and shape romped together in enclosed dog runs, bobbed for hotdogs in wading pools, made paw-print paintings and basked in the sun while their owners sipped wine and conversed with fellow animal lovers. Inside was not so cheery as forlorn pooches like this one vied for attention from the many visitors that were on hand. The Maryland SPCA is a no kill shelter so hopefully more than one lucky dog or cat found their forever home that day.
