Calendars! (Caps Outsider)

It’s been a couple months since the Capitals got their photos taken with dogs, but it wasn’t until Tuesday when they were available, just in time for the holidays (and, um, the new year). For $20, you can own a calendar full of photos of Alex Ovechkin, Mike Green, Nicklas Backstrom and friends wearing funny outfits and posing with dogs. Don’t make fun – it’s for a good cause… Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.

Homeward Trails seeks to find permanent adoptive homes in the Mid-Atlantic region for dogs and cats from high-kill shelters or whose owners can no longer care for them. They seek to reduce the rate of euthanasia of adoptable animals through the rescue and placement of homeless animals; to support proactive spay/neuter practices; to promote positive and ongoing behavioral training; and to educate the public about how to care for their animals in a humane way.

The calendars are available at Verizon Center, but also during December at the MSE Foundation table outside section 104.  You can also order them online at capitals.nhl.com, but that comes with a hefty $10 shipping and handling charge, $20 to you Canadiens.

Be sure to see the behind the scenes photos at washingtonpost.com.
