Saturday morning was the local Humane Society's annual doggy fun run/walk, for which I annually volunteer, along with a dozen or so other hardy animal lovers. We were down at Esther Short Park at 6:45 in the morning, waiting for the hordes.
We were there at 7:00 waiting for the hordes.
We were there at 7:30 waiting for the hordes.
We were there at 7:45 waiting for the hordes.
We were there at 8:00 waiting for the hordes.
The hordes all came en masse at 8:30. Thanks, hordes. Way to require long lines and several dog and volunteer freak-outs.
The walk started at 9:00 admidst the wacky chaos of a thousand dogs and several thousand people.
I stayed a minute too long and got volunteered to count the donations. We counted $50,000, and wished for more. They need all the help they can get. Our shelter is a goner and needs to be replaced, but construction costs and daily shelter costs just keep rising.
