I'd asked about taking Miss Sadie on the walk with us since it was actually her one year anniversary as well. It seemed a little unclear but basically if you kept your dog from messing up everyone else starting then it was ok. We brought her along to the park and she was being a very good girl but David got uncomfortable with the looks he was perceiving from the competitive runners. Now it's my impression that the really competitive runners were largely seeing ALL of us as a pain in the neck rather than little Sades. However, Sadie got left in the dog kennels in the boat house at DayTripping when we set off.
|Ready to start.|
Right in front of us for most of the walk was a lovely dog and his owner who were both having an excellent time. David apologized because Sadie would have been totally fine on the walk AND the doggy got a participant's medal too. How cute would Sadie be with a participant's medal?? Seriously!
