|Hurley's ready to get dashing!|
This was our very first time participating in the Doggie Dash, which is a run/walk/fun event hosted by and benefiting the Oregon Humane Society. Each May, thousands of dogs and their paw-rents gather on Portland's Waterfront and run or walk (we walked 'cause, you know, "Hurley Don't Hurry") a 2.5 mile loop over and back across a couple of Portland's Most Famous Bridges. I've wanted to do this in the past but alas, Sadie is not particularly great with crowds and that many dogs would give Maggie conniption fits. This is right up Hurley's alley, however, so off we went this past Saturday morning.
We'll definitely be participating in the Doggie Dash next year and next time around, we're thinking 'bout forming a team. Really, who wouldn't want to be a part of Team Hurley?
