Wiggle Waggle Walk

Today we took part in the Pasadena Humane Society Wiggle Waggle Walk. It's a funday/5k walk. It has been pretty hot here, and sure enough this morning at 9am it was almost 86 degrees. The whole day was pretty hot, a lot of pups went on strike and just laid down. Waffle and Marie seemed to find nice cool dirt piles to lay in. *sigh*
Waffle after the walk cooling off in the shade, she really didn't appreciate it when I poured water on her head.
They had demos here are the dogs from the Pasadena PD' K9 unit

arrrrrrgggggggg

There were hundreds of dogs all shapes and sizes. Lately Waffle has seemed a little heavy when she plops down on me in the morning. She still has a waist and you can feel her ribs, but she has picked up 4 lbs in the past year.
BUT comparatively a 56 lb lad next to 150 lb St.Bernard not a big deal. Look at Waffle's eyes she really isn't sure she wants to be next to this boy.


After the walk at home all pooped out. But if you notice we scored a few new collars at the fun fair.
I wanted something girly looking, people are totally afraid of a black dog, esp. when she is in a halti.
and of course I had to have one for my favorite time of year!
Who is Marie you ask? This is my friend's new pup. She is just 5 months and is about as tall as Waffle. I'm trying to get her to understand that she will be a big dog and that she needs to get a hand on this cute puppy b4 she becomes an out of control dog. You really can't tell other people how to raise their dog anymore than you can tell people how to raise their kids.
hope you all had a good weekend.

It's really hard for me to see someone training their puppy all wrong......
It's frustrating, but no, you sure can't tell them that your way is much better!
