This past Saturday, several Brazos Valley Doodles and their owners participated in the "Paws for a Cause 2K Run" which benefited a local rescue group called God's Little Creatures. I am looking at the souvenir T-shirt as I'm typing this and realizing for the first time that it was a RUN! What?? Please don't let our doods, because that's the last thing they were doing! Perhaps they would have run if it hadn't been for their slow owners, so let's give them the benefit of the doubt! After all, Captain's mom is pregnant and needed to take it easy (It makes me feel so much better to blame her than "non-caffeinated" me at 8 o'clock in the morning, lol!) Nevertheless, we had a great time being outside on a gorgeous day together and supporting a great cause!
Now for pics of the participants!
First, Captain and Libby (notice her cute baby bump!):
Next, Rachel and Wild Thing Ollie:
Next, Christine and "Energizer Bunny Shelby:
Then, DK Newcomers Laura and Heidi (the "babies" of the group):
And finally, Knox and me (yes, matchy-matchy!)
Here we are PAWS-ing for a mid-walk photo opportunity. Again, why hurry??
Slowly but surely, we arrived at the finish line. YAY! We did it! Notice closely the blue bandannas -- they say "I Survived" on them, chuckle, chuckle,,,
In closing, let me leave you with two darling pics. The first one is of Captain, the gentle giant of the group. He has two speeds and this photo shows his fast one! He is going to make the best doodle-brother ever...
...and then this...Our DK newbies Heidi and Laura are both absolutely precious!
The Walk or the Run, whatever you want to call it, was a ton of fun!
