Splash and Dash Cypress

Lakeland Community Center off Park Rd. & Fry in the Bridgeland Community. The event will start of the dock that extends into Lake Bridgeland (big front lake). Parking will be at Cypress-Ranch High School off Fry (across the street). All those that do not pickup their packet ahead of time must checkin early (before race start) at the big white tent in Festival Park, across from swim exit.

 

Dogs and masters will jump from a dock that extends about 50 feet out into Lake Bridgeland. The lake is anywhere from 4-8 feet deep throughout. From the entry point at the end of the dock dogs and humans will have about 75-meters to an orange buoy located towards the middle of the lake. Once teams swim around the orange buoy (keeping it on their right) they swim straight into shore about 125-meters further.

We will have kayaks and lifeguards in the water to assist those in need of help or rest. Medical will be on the shore. Those dogs that do not complete, or even start the swim, will be permitted to do the run portion of the event but masters will first be asked to turn in their team’s timing chip.

 

RUN1-Mile RunAll dogs must be leashed for the entire run. The run is 1-mile and has a hydration station (water, Gatorade, ice) around the 1/2-mile mark. The run is a scenic beautiful run around lake Bridgeland before crossing the finish line and relaxing at post race with food, drink, music and friends.

Tootsies Hosts Book Signing: Cat Lady Chic

Cocktail Party and Pet Adoption Benefits PetSet And Friends For Life

WHO: Tootsies, Houston’s home for the foremost luxurious shopping experience.

PetSet, an umbrella organization for animal rescue groups.

Friends For Life, the fastest growing No Kill animal adoption and rescue organization in Houston, dedicated to offering No Kill solutions to the animals of Houston and the people who want to help them.

Diane Lovejoy, author of Cat Lady Chic and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Publications Director.

WHAT: Tootsies will host a cocktail party and book signing for the Houston launch of Diane Lovejoy’s new book, Cat Lady Chic. The term “cat lady” evokes the image of an unfashionable, unkempt woman hoarding multiple cats, but Lovejoy wrote the book as an antidote to this unflattering point of view. She celebrates the “cat lady” with images of some of the most beautiful and accomplished women in modern history with their beloved cats. The volume features a sharp, funny introductory essay on the “cat lady” conundrum.

Models will walk the cat walk wearing “furrocious” fashions, while guests enjoy cocktails and light bites and have the opportunity to meet Lovejoy and purchase a signed book. There will also be copies of the French edition, which includes a preface by Azzedine Alaia, a Tunisian-born couturier and shoe designer, particularly successful in the 1980s.

A percentage of the book and merchandise sales will benefit animal rescue groups through PetSet. The Friends For Life mobile adoption van will be located outside the store that afternoon and during the event so attendees can adopt a cat! For more information on the book, visit the Facebook page.

WHEN: Wednesday, October 1
6-8pm – Cocktail party and book signing
4-8pm – Friends for Life mobile adoption van outside of Tootsies

WHERE: Tootsies
