Hi friends! Reef the fox here with another weekly edition of “Reef’s Report.” This past weekend, we had a huge project going on at home. My fox friends Jasper and Penny got a brand new enclosure, and boy, oh boy, is it amazing.

Coral and I love it. I mean, it was really for us right? We had some really cool volunteers here to help tear down the old one: retired Monroe County Sheriff’s Maj. Don Fanelli, his wife Beth, and deputy Nelson Sanchez and his wife Rosie. We love the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. If you follow Pawsitive Beginnings on social media, then I’m sure you saw the whole video of the new enclosure. And if you didn’t see it, you should definitely check it out. Mom sent in some photos of Penny and Jasper with their pumpkins in their new enclosure. 

There are some really fun things going on this weekend in the Upper Keys. On Saturday, Oct. 30 at the Islamorada Moose Lodge is the Warlocks and Witches on Wheels ride starting at 6 p.m. Dress yourself and your bicycle in your spookiest Halloween theme and head on down. Ride starts at the Whistle Stop at 6 p.m. and ends at the Islamorada Moose Lodge. There will be prizes awarded at the Moose around 9 p.m. 

On Halloween night, the Caribbean Club is having a huge Halloween party. It starts at 7 p.m. and the Luke Glenn Band will rock the waterfront stage from 7 to 11 p.m. The first 50 people will receive a bag full of tricks and treats. I really want to go to this because I have an amazing Halloween costume. 

Don’t forget on Nov. 12, MarrVelous Pet Rescue’s Spayghetti and No Balls Gala is happening at Snook’s Bayside starting at 6:30. You can get your tickets at
