This post may start out by offending some people. And for that I truly am sorry. But… well, I’m a dog person. Always was, and always will be. Cats? Well, personally I think they’re kind of jerks. There, I said it. Yes, they can be cute, and cuddly if they WANT to be. But if not, well, they’ll just hiss, scratch and bite their way out of your lap.
Dogs are loyal to a fault. They’ll greet you at the door with a smile and a tail wag every single time. Sure, there may also be a few “accidents” here and there, but hey, cats go to the bathroom in the house all the time, too. They just happen to have a litter box, is all.
Anyways, I don’t currently have a dog because Jason’s a bit scared of them. Plus there’s the whole responsibility and money part of it. I hope to get one in the next few years though, as Allie and I love dogs, and Ryan really wants one. I had a Shih-Tzu growing up called Muffin (yes, he was a he, and I had nothing to do with his name), and he really was my best friend. In short, dogs just rule!
So if you’re in the Washington D.C. area (or want to take a trip), there’s a wonderful fund-raiser happening on September 29. Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Scooby-Doo are teaming up with the dog whisperer himself Cesar Millan for the second annual National Family Pack Walk.
Designed to promote a dog-friendly community, the largest pack walk ever will feature family-friendly activities and appearances by Cesar Millan and Scooby-Doo. All proceeds from the event support the Millan Foundation’s efforts to improve the quality of life for dogs everywhere.
Event will feature a 1.5-mile pack walk around the National Mall and Memorial Parks and a Family Expo with a Scooby-Doo reading lounge and screening room, gaming room, photo booth, scavenger hunt, arts & crafts, pet adoptions, dog agility demonstrations, off-leash dog play yards, training tips & tricks meet-and-greet with Scooby-Doo costume characters, and more!
It looks like a really fun day for the family, friends, kids, and especially dogs! Any organization that helps improve the quality of lives for dogs, is okay in my book and deserves all the help it can get. So please sign up to participate, or at the very least, show up to offer your support!
