Update On The Wiggle Waggle Walk

Yesterday, I asked for you, my readers, to donate what ever you could to the Pasadena Humane Society Wiggle Waggle Walk.
The event was held today.
And the goal was $330,000 dollars to raise for this, the 11th annual version of the walk.
However, the total raised as of today was only $244,659.52. And our team, Paws On Parade had a goal of $5,000 and raised $4,000.
Considering the state of the economy, the fact that almost 75% of the total goal was raised is amazing in and of itself. And our team, Paws On Parade met 80% of our goal is a testament to the hard work of the members of the team.
There were two courses, a one-mile walk and a three-mile walk. We chose the one-mile as even at 9 in the morning, it was rather warm. Some dogs were lucky and their owners had some transportation once they puckered out. But, Scout the Wonder Dog was a trooper and walked the whole course.
Today was a fun day. A day to support a worthy cause and put the world's other troubles-which there are many-on the back burner.
Tomorrow, back to the real world. Today, our family was proud to be a part of the Wiggle Waggle Walk.
