This past Saturday we took part in the Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for the Oregon Humane Society. Over 4,000 dogs were at the event. It started downtown on the waterfront, took us on a path over the Hawthorne bridge, to the east bank esplanade, over the Steele Bridge and then back to the waterfront; a walk totaling 2.5 miles. It was so much fun for a crazy dog lady such as myself to be surrounded by so many dogs! Our little pup did exceptionally well & kept pace the entire time. We we're kinda worried because of her short little legs, but she was a trooper. She even looked like she enjoyed it! We made sure to give her a few extra treats afterwards :)
And let's talk about the weather for a moment. The weather on Saturday was perfect, not a cloud in the sky. It was one of those days that make living in Portland so worthwhile. It was one of those days that make Portland my perfect city & that you don't mind dealing with the rain & the gloom in the winter because this day was perfect. I think Portlanders really appreciate a good weather day more than anyone else. Because when it's nice outside, you better believe we take full advantage of it!
