Moving up in the world

       Andrea Joblinske (right) encourages her dog Pixie (a Husky mix she’d adopted from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region) up a ramp on the agility course, which was one of numerous activities at the society’s annual Pawtoberfest at Bear Creek Regional Park Sept. 21. Helping out is Judy Katz of All Breed Rescue and Training. Roughly 1,000 people (most of them with dogs) attended the five-hour event, with proceeds designated for programs to help homeless or abused animals.
