Sarge’s Downtown Dog Walk – 2010 – The Pictures!

Yes, we have our pictures from the Downtown Dog Walk with Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.  The pictures of us walking with the banner are all provided courtesy of Sarge’s:

Once again, this was an incredibly fun day and we were truly honored to lead the parade this year.  Amazingly, we have no stories to share because The Herd was on their absolute best behavior.  Maybe it was having two police dogs march behind us?  Anyway, the people at Sarge’s do a fantastic job helping literally thousands of dogs and cats get out of our local shelter and find new forever homes.  Please, wherever you live, support your local rescue(s)!

Tomorrow, we will let you know how much money was raised and announce the prize winners from our Walking with The Herd contest.

    What wonderful photos! Looks like you had a terrific day, a terrific event, and even some terrific butt sniffing – you know, for the dogs.

    Congrats on your success!

    LOVED the music on your slideshow! Looks like a fantastic walk – wow – so many different kinds of doggies were there! I love the lime green bandanans everyone was wearing. And I’ll bet it was quite a site to see all the Herd walking together in front of the banner! 🙂

    Slobbers,

    How fun was that??? We loved all the photos! And we’re impressed wif your behaviors, which are stellar! Just sayin!

    Four paws for a well planned and executed event, and there is no more noble Mission than Rescue!!!

    The Herd looks wonderful! I’m sure they were the talk of the town and the envy of all. It was fun to see all the different breeds looking dapper in their green kerchiefs.

  11. Huffle Mawson on August 18, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    Herd, you disappoint me. Not a single story?

    (great pics by the way)

  12. Sierra Rose on August 18, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    Yay! Fantabulous event 🙂 Love the video and jazzy walkin’ music! We definitely do try to participate as well with our local rescues and shelters, wonderful organizations!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

    What great photos!!! Hey, do you think they had the police dogs walk behind you on purpose? You guys weren’t being perp-walked, were you? Ha roo roo roo!
    Play bows,

    You humans are so very talented, three dogs each AND one hand on the banner – great job. Beautiful slideshow, so many gorgeous dogs. It looks like Ruby and Tartok had a great time too. We loved the marching photo of Rusty.

    Great slide show! So many dogs and I loved everyone in their green bandanas!

  20. MAXMOM on August 18, 2010 at 10:50 am

    Whew!
    So many dogs!..All of them look so healthy, happy and beautifully groomed. I’m not surprised that event is so popular – it looks like you have fabulous weather too.

    I was already thinking about joining my local SPCA’s walkathon. Those great pix decided me–it looks like lots of fun!

  22. KB on August 18, 2010 at 8:40 am

    Could you please send those police dogs out here? We could use some discipline around here 🙂

    I can’t believe that Rusty the Rooster didn’t have a prank planned. Wonders never cease!!!!!

    Congrats on the great honor of leading the parade!

  23. Zoe on August 18, 2010 at 8:34 am

    That is one photogenic Herd leading the walk! And so many doggie grins in one video – love it.

  24. Clive on August 18, 2010 at 8:24 am

    Congrats on a great day – you all looked wonderful – great video!

    take care
    Clive and Murray

  25. Houndstooth on August 18, 2010 at 8:07 am

    You guys look great! I didn’t see one unhappy dog in the whole video. Is it possible that The Herd went home tired for a change? Heck, you even saw Greyhounds there, you must have seen just about everything!

  26. Pip on August 18, 2010 at 8:02 am

    Oh, these are so great! Thanks for sharing. Almost feel like I was there!

    Your pal, Pip

  29. Priscilla on August 18, 2010 at 2:19 am

    Woot!!
    Well done on your walkie! Police doggies are kinda scary but you guys did a great job!

  30. Mr Koda MD on August 18, 2010 at 1:35 am

    Those policedoggies can be formidable creatures… good to hear you were on your best behaviour so you weren’t subject to their wrath!

  31. Wild Dingo on August 18, 2010 at 1:24 am

    There aren’t enough police dogs in the world to stop a criminal like a sibe. nah… we think you guys were pullin’ the ‘ole possum trick… uh huh…

    nice shots! it looks like so much fun. yes, i agree, support the rescues! way to go herd!

  32. Khyra on August 18, 2010 at 1:20 am

    And not just ANY police dogs!

    I wonder if they were watching ‘Q’ with extra insight from a certain ‘B’

    It does look as if lots of our blog pals managed to get away from their humans to pawticipate in the walk!

    Well done on the day, the video, and the post!

    Hugz&Khysses,
    Khyra
