We were part of a huge event yesterday near Mandurah in Western Australia, with 78 dogs and their owners pattering around the pathways of Seascapes.
During the morning we popped in to Spill The Beans Cafe for my Puppicino and met some local dogs.
We had a choice of how far to roam as long as we kept to the path above the dunes where there were no cars. It was a perfect walking day.
Most families walked two to four kilometres while other humans stopped their enthusiastic dogs at the three km mark and turned for home. The fittest dogs returned along the beach front and nicked into the waves for a quick cool down.
A few older dogs pleaded exhaustion at only the one km turn around. I think they knew the sausages were cooking on the BBQ and did not want to miss out.
We raised a lot of money for the K9 Dog Refuge and the RSPCA, who help doggies who have been cruelly treated. Unlike other charity walks around Perth this one, organised by my friend John and his team of volunteers, ensured all the donations went straight to the charities we were supporting.
Thanks for everyone who participated. it was a fun day. We hope to see you and more of your mates at next year’s walk.
Now I need to talk about me.
Of course I was the cleverest dog the event. While my mum Helen was busy taking photographs of all my mates, I hung around the BBQ and charmed lots of humans into giving me “just a little bit” of sausage. By the end of the day i could barely walk . My little tummy stretched to the limit and felt as though it might go “pop”! I did not need any dinner at home that night.
At the moment I am having another little snooze while my mum gets the photographs ready to show you. You will see pictures of little dogs and huge ones, curly coated ones and long hairs, and of course some skinny hounds and a few chubby ones.
More Photos coming soon!
Love to all,
