Today was the day, and Team Emma was ready to hit the streets! It was a small crowd, but everyone had a great time. Emma got to hang with the big boys. Two big huskies to be exact.
This was the first year for the event so we’re hoping word will spread and get more dogs involved next year. This year over $1000 was raised for Dog Guides!
Due to Ottawa Race Weekend taking place we had to change the route for the walk, which ended up being a far more pleasant route. The last leg of our journey was along Beechwood Avenue where the race was taking place, so lot’s of cheering and music going on. So we decided to have a bit of fun with it. Even though this was a walk and not a race we cheered the dogs on as they made their way to the finish line. Due to her strategy of slow and steady wins the race (and some help from the husky parents) Emma was the first one to cross the finish line. Little stumpy legs beat the big boys! lol
Thanks to all Emma’s sponsors who helped her raise $131!
Thanks to Pet Valu Beechwood for putting on such a great event! Team Emma will be there again next year!
Happy tired girl at the finish line
