Fun Times at the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides

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!

Last Chance to Sponsor Emma in the Walk for Dog Guides

Last chance to sponsor Emma in her walk for Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides ! The walk is tomorrow morning at 11am from Petvalu Beechwood to Stanley park. A long walk when your legs are only 4 inches long.

We set a goal of $200 and so far with in person and online donations we’ve made just over half that. Also, this morning we discovered someone STOLE some of her donation money from the jar in her house.

So any little donation would greatly help a wonderful organization.

***** I’ve been told that with online donations that it looks like you have to donate $25. You don’t. Look for the ‘other amount’ button.
