2nd Annual Critter K Charity Walk

Yesterday was the 2nd Annual Critter K Charity walk, sponsored by LaNita Flannery, DVM and Chip and Lisa Wynn. Here are Dr. Flannery with Maddie and Chip with the famous Benji
greeting folks at 7:30 in the morning.
And the folks and critters were already arriving - at 7:30 in the morning on a Saturday. Perfect weather, good people, magical critters.
After everyone signed up, we walked! And did we walk!
There were old dogs
And young
There were sweet happy rescued dogs
big hairy slobbery dogs
big not-so-hairy slobbery dogs
And dogs with sunshine in their eyes
Big and little dogs made new buddies
And a dog named Jack (look closely) made huge fans when he did the obstacle course.
There were non-dog critters
And wild critters
Little peoples had a great time

There were snackies! Lots and lots of snackies!
And there were friends

The monies from the registration, the raffles, and the silent auction will go to help our three local no-kill shelters.
There was a unity of spirit. People who love their pets, out on a lovely Saturday morning doing a little something to help pets who don't have people. Yet.
Life doesn't get too much better.

  9. what a fun group of doggies! I wish we could have come to represent the BTs. OH and to eat some of those SNACKIES!!!!!!!!!

  10. That is such a lovely thing in Paducah - you should get a stipend for the great PR you do for the city.
    (And, umm, ferrets aren't wild could never harness and hold one of their actually wild weasel cousins.)

  11. I meant to go but I forgot all about it. Too bad too because I could have taken my granddaughter. My two boxers would have had a ball.
