2018 Fur Ball Chair Cindy Lindsley and Co-Chair Jennifer Lindsley are howling about the news that former First Lady Laura and President George W. Bush have signed as the honorary co-chairs for the SPCA of Texas gala fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency Dallas on Saturday, September 22.
If you’re wondering if the First Bushes of Dallas are animal lovers, stop wondering. They’ve gotten into the rescue world with Bob the cat that was found at the family ranch in Crawford seven years ago and feline Bernadette that used to live with daughter Jenna Bush Hager. Evidently Bernadette decided she had enough of the Big Apple and moved to the Big D.
As for the canine crowd, Laura and George met up with a “Heinz 57” cutie at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center a couple of years ago and brought him home. He’s named Freddy after the Bush Chief of Staff Freddy Ford.
Initially, Bob was not thrilled about the new kid in the hood, but after a couple swipes Freddy figured out the pecking order and now “Even Bob and Bernadette are finding Freddy’s charm futile to resist.”
The Lindsley gals were pulling in the “big dogs” for this 80th anniversary of the SPCA of Texas.
Chairing the auction is Julia Howard along with Co-Chair Sandra Fite.
