Sarge’s Downtown Dog Walk

Long time readers know that we are huge fans of Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation and have participated every year in Sarge’s Downtown Dog Walk.

This year was a little challenging with Natasha recovering from her surgery and unable to participate in the whole parade. Kiska may be the Chief of Security around Chez Herd, but large crowds have never been fun for her. Without the Queen walking beside her, Kiska would not have enjoyed the walk. And, of course, Qannik rounds out the Senior Team. So the Seniors settled into the Jeep and watched the parade from their shady, cool spot.

Best seats in the house!

Have no fear. The Thundering Herd was well represented in the parade by the Juniors! Cheoah, Frankie and Typhoon Phooey did us proud!

no supervision

Allowed in public without the supervision of the Senior crew.

The weather was perfect – sunny and warm without being too hot. Still, when you are a Siberian Husky, summer is hot no matter what.

And, yes, the Hu-Dad captured plenty of pictures and video and will create a video of the parade later this week. Stay tuned.

    Thanks for being at the walk on ten years! WHERE did all that time go? Sarge’s is very grateful for The Herd’s friendship and support.

    Mom sez: Are you saying that Typhoon did the Herd proud and actually behaved himself? Oh dear, maybe he’s growing up at last!

      Fairly well, though he might have been a little vocal in moments. Still, he very much believes in living the Peter Pan syndrome and refusing to grow up.
