Furry Scurry

The Furry Scurry is the Dumb Friends League's largest fundraiser.
Mickey and I were proud to participate.
It's a big event.
Mickey was dog #5,528.
There were over 12,000 humans.

Mickey got a special purple
"I am a rescue dog" ribbon for his harness
which we lost on the route.
The dogs were really well-behaved.
There were big dogs,
and little dogs.
Sophie, we saw lots of Doddles -
Labradoodles, and even a SaintBernardadoodle!
I worried a bit about how my little ranch dog
would do in the big city.
That tail was a'wagging from start

to finish.
$656,147.01 was raised for animals in need.

My ears perked up when I read Saint Bernardadoodle!! Love to see that mix!!
Looks like a great day and good to see that Mickey fit right in with the others, Terry. Amazing how they (most of them) know what to's usually follow the leader.
Great first photo...don't see you much!

It looks like Mickey and you had fun! I've never gone to the Furry Scurry, but I am a supporter of the Dumb Friends League.

I loved your Sundog post too! I saw a spectacular one the winter before last, and of course, my third graders learned all about sundogs first thing that day.

Happy Mother's Day!
