What A Great Waddle!!
The 20th Annual Illinois Waddle was another great "family reunion"
for the Bassets  of GABR and their families.  
And we've been holding this reunion for 20 years.  

The weekend was a chance to see new Bassets and those Bassets
adopted through  GABR many years ago.
The Villard Bassets
welcomed everyone to
The 20th Illinois Waddle!!
Our GABR Waddle store had
Guardian Angel merchandise while
ABC Rescue provide an unbelievable
selection of Basset "stuff".
The Great American Basset Races were a great hit as always.
Bodhi, on the right, is on his way to victory in the Finals!
The crowning of the 2017 King & Queen was the highlight of
Saturday's Bash.  Kenny & Roxanne sit proudly on the new
thrones, built by GABR member, Donna Stoll.

The crowns were made by long-time GABR supporter, Dona Kare.
This special wagon was entered in the Waddle by Matt & Cindy Smith of St. Louis.  
Fred was taken in by GABR and was unable to walk.

Because of our donors, GABR made the decision to have back surgery done on
Fred - you can see by the sign that the surgery worked!  Fred Smith is a very
happy boy!
And thank you to all of our volunteers who spent many hours making this event something very special.
You are very much appreciated!!
A special Thank You goes out to Don Hunt.  Don is a Basset lover from
Belleville, Illinois.  
He's also very well known on Facebook - his home is known as the Bassetarium.

Don was also the leading fund-raiser for GABR with total donations exceeding
$7,000.  The Bassets of GABR are very happy that Don is a supporter of Guardian
Angel.
WAY TO GO, DON!!
