Gaby and Lili Goldstein Van Keuren 

Gaby (4) and Lili (9) were taken in to Tri State in January 2019, both were local surrenders from an owner who bred them. Their new slaves, Dawn and Rich, have been associated with Tri State, in one form or another, for the last 25 years. This years Grand Marshal's spot is very special because 22 years ago it was Dawn who went to the officials in Ocean City and asked for permission for the hounds to participate and become part of the parade. It was a hit from day one and now a yearly tradition. The BoardWaddle has become Tri State's largest fundraiser allowing us to save dogs in our community and beyond. In all of those 22 parade years, Dawn and Rich's dogs have never held the GM title.  This year they made the top pledge list at #3. The top 2 donors had previously held the title making Gaby and Lili next in line. These dogs have been working hard for Tri State and bassets all across the US, following in the footsteps of the beloved hounds Dawn and Rich had before them. Gaby is a photogenetic, outgoing hound who loves to give kisses to everyone he meets. Lili is the reserved one and has a mischievous side to her with a taste for the finer things in life.... couches, beds, hats, gloves and wallets. 

Congratulations Gaby and Lili our 2021 Grand Marshals for Tri State Basset Hound Rescue’s 23rd Board Waddle in the 36th annual Doo Dah Parade.

Our BoardWaddle is an extension of the Doo-Dah Parade, which is organized by the town of Ocean City, NJ. The word from OC right now is"cautious optimism" that there will be a Doo-Dah Parade on April 17, 2021. Therefore, we are preparing a "hybrid" BoardWaddle. This means a combination of in person and virtual events. We are not expecting a final call on the parade for a few more weeks. Whether some events are in person or all have to be virtual, we are moving forward with this annual fundraiser to raise money for Bassets and Basset-mixes that need help in our community and beyond. In the coming weeks, look out updates via email, on our website and our social media with the latest details.
