for something called Bark In the Park. The Mom assures me there is no barking involved. That's good, 'cuz I don't bark--Dixie does! The Mom says it's a 5K/3.2 mile walk on Saturday May 1st with approximately 3,500 animal lovers--most with their dogs!
The Mom registered me with my Dad as the leash-holder. This I GOT to see. The Dad breaks a sweat walking from the house to the garage! The Mom said it's for a Good Cause--The Anti-Cruelty Society, Chicago’s comprehensive, open-door humane society and SPCA of Illinois, celebrating 111 years of caring for the animals. This Bark In the Park walk is one of their major fund-raisers, which they need because they are a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and receive NO government funds or funds from the HSUS or ASPCA.
I just don't know how I'm gonna react to all those 3,500 people. But, Dixie's done it, so how hard can it be? Wish me luck...
P.S. Thanks to Dogster HQ for picking this diary entry as Feature Diary of the Day for April 20th. It's great to have help getting the word out about Bark in the Park.
