Its a dog’s world; RSPCA million paws walk

Bob

Its no secret that I HATE exercise in any form. But last Sunday I donned my sneakers, roped in sister Annie & lil son Kobe to walk my sister’s dog Bob in the annual RSPCA million paws walk. RSPCA is a leading charity against cruelty of animals. Across Australia; RSPCA rescue, look after & rehome thousands of neglected animals per year. I take my hat off to them for all the goodness they do.

BUT it doesn’t stop there, I couldn’t help but google 400,000 pets are abandoned per year & of that figure 180, 000 HEALTHY animals are euthanised every year (according to abc.net.au). Isnt that heart-breaking? The time to help was NOW! Sucking up my hatred of exercise & animal cruelty we paid our entry fee then talked the talk & walked the walk.

Getting ready for the million paws walk

We chose the Rockingham location to walk to avoid the mass crowds in the city. It was a blessing in disguise as the walk was coastal along the beach & only 1.7km in distance which was perfect for older dogs. Any longer & Im sure that Bob would have been snugly seated next to Kobe in his pram (& yes there were a few dogs snug in prams minus the bubs). Bob got his certificate after his walk & we celebrated over hotdogs & throwing sand in the sandpit (well Annie & Kobe threw sand in the sandpit while Bob & I rested up alongside).

Dogs glorious dogs

Next year Im thinking bigger & better; by getting in early to register & set up a sponsor page, & also going cra-cra-crazy dressing up Kobe & Bob in matching outfits because y’know its all in the name of charity ha ha:)

The finish line

If your in Australia, another wonderful charity Salvation Army doorknock appeal is happening this weekend so if you have any spare coins please think of those less fortunate:)

Happy Saturday friends!
