It was great to see old friends and meet new ones at the Wiggle Waggle Walkathon this weekend. It was a gorgeous day and our location near the gazebo in Victoria Park was perfect for meeting dogs and owners at the half-way point of the sponsored walk. The dogs and their people seemed to travel in a big pack – we were inundated with a large group of dogs shortly after the walk started but were able to handout treats for dogs and humans alike. The water we donated in conjunction with Waterloo North Chiropractic was appreciated, although many dogs insisted on having a sip from each of the dozen water dishes that we set up. Not surprisingly we answered lots of questions on harnesses and leash pulling, although most dogs were very well behaved. One dexterous owner even had five dogs with five leashes that she was skillfully walking. Some of the common questions about our hospital concerned dental disease, heart worm and flea prevention, and our popular Care Plans. We had more leisure to chat about these and other concerns after the walk when the Humane Society staff helped us move to the Clock Tower location where pet owners watched the Ultimutts Stunt Dog Show, learned more about local pet services, received free microchips for their pets, and lounged on the grass after their exercise.
