Austin’s 13th Annual Mighty Texas Dog Walk! April 2, 2011

Posted on February 22, 2011. Filed under: -- On MY Calendar, -- Uncategorized, -- What MOLLY's Up To, Barton, Texas | Tags: , , , , |

Last year my dog, Barton, and I participated in the 12th annual walk. There were 11,256 dogs there! Literally. It was a barkin’ good time. My dog even received a medal for being a “World Record Breaking Dog.” I think he now has as many medals as I do. Just kidding. Well, sort of kidding.

Looks like Austin is trying to set a Guniess Book of World Records this year, so I hope that you and your best friend will be able to make it. Barton and I will be there with a few of his best pals. 

Below the poodle picture are the details about the event, including a map and link for registration. You can save $5 by pre-registering online.

If you decide to come, make sure you get there early. There are tons of vendors, gifts and treats for your pooch. Also, there are so many great photo opps along the way so don’t forget your camera. Each dog that completes the walk gets a GOLD medal! It’s awesome and really is sooo very much fun.
