The Ruby Doggie Dash team!

This weekend, a team of Rubys descended on Portland’s Waterfront Park to take in some sunshine, hang out with some cute dogs, and most importantly raise funds and awareness for a cause that is very near and dear to my heart: the Oregon Humane Society. This was the 4th year our “Ruby Rascals” team has participated in the OHS Doggie Dash, and this year was just as fun and adorable as ever!

Leading up to the dash, we put on a bake sale in the office to help our team raise funds and support the cause. With the help of some of our amazing bakers and generous teammates, we raised enough to feed all the animals in the shelter for one day and enjoyed some sweet treats in the process! We’d like to think we are saving puppies, one cupcake at a time!

My dog, Ellie, got a little tired and ended up spending the last half of the dash in my Ruby laptop bag!

Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to our team! And special thanks to Barbara Nelson with Successfully Solo who contributed all the way from New Jersey! We already can’t wait for next year!
