Whisker Walk

We're going to the 6th Annual Whisker Walk (there is the cutest Chihuahua at the beginning of their video!) tomorrow with Maggie and Duke. The walk is organized by the Sterling Animal Shelter, but it helps raise funds and awareness for at least 45 different animal rescues, shelters and non-profits from around the country. Click here for the full list of groups participating. There are also more than 40 different sponsors and vendors, and events including  CGC (Canine Good Citizens) testing by the Squakheag Akita Club and an agility course that your dog can try for a donation to the CMDART (Central MA Disaster Animal Rescue Team).

You want us to do what?




Maggie has tried the agility course 3 different times and Duke has tried it twice, I think we'll give them a break this year! Maggie isn't food motivated and Duke gets too nervous near the instructors/any new people standing too close, so we'll just check out all of the amazing groups and vendors. They both love being around big groups of dogs, big groups of people not so much, so it averages out. We can always tell that Duke is starting to relax when he finally takes a treat. We look like weirdoes, we get so excited that he's eating! People with normal dogs have no idea...
