    Talking Million Paws Walk

    I just saw the ads and am in the process of organizing everyone I know for registration lol.

    I've done it previously with our other dog, but never with Roxie, and as naughty as she can be I'm always looking for new ways to expose her to different things.

    So far I've got three adults, two kids and four dogs

    For anyone who hasn't been, it's a great day out, plenty of things to look at. There are exhibitions on of agility and sheep herding, and stalls, most with a free goody bag. There are also free vet checks.

    We go to Albert Park in Melbourne, and you don't have to do the whole 5km walk if you can't make it. It was definitely worth going to though.

    Here is the link for anyone who wants to check it out:

    I did it for the first time ever last year, and Roly one 'Most lively senior dog'.
    It was lots of fun, definately doing it again this year.

    I will have to see how we go this year. Last year I refused to go as they jacked the price up to $25 per person. I am happy to donate money, but can't afford $50 for me and my partner to go for a darn walk!, that is just rude.
    The launceston one did not have competitions or anything it was literally just turn up and go for walkies.

    That's awesome about the awards, maybe Roxie will win 'dog with the most attitude'? lol.

    Crested, that is reallllly steep! I just had a look, Launceston is charging $8 per adult this year, much better. We're $16 here!! Hopefully they have more activities or stalls.

    Now that sounds much more reasonable, they should have a better turn out here this year then!

    When I did it a few years back it was optional to pay... you 'donated' $5 at the end of the walk and got a participation certificate if you wanted it.
    Now it's money upfront and you get a wrist band to prove you paid.

    Mitte it's a good day out, and for a great cause.

    I wonder if you can have a team and all participate in different states? We could have a team!!


    ...Does anyone know what the benefit of having a team is? LOL. The $$ is the same....

    I'd like to do it but Olympic Park is waaaaay too far away for me. I don't drive and my bf's mum who occassionally gives us a lift to places is away at that time so I won't be going. Would be great if we could take dogs on trains (even if they had to be muzzled or something) but I don't think we can disguise Suzie as a guide dog with how much she likes to lick :P

    Hope everyone has fun there though.

    Were the numbers down last year? I couldn't afford the $25 to enter last year.

    I will head up to the walk at the Illawarra. Hopefully my bf can take Roxy out too.
