On Sunday I performed in my 7th Doggie Dash and Dawdle for Animal Humane. Once again it was a great gig although I am really getting tired of Zunipup. I think it's time I upgrade to a better dog. But anyway...it was a fun time running around and interacting with LOTS and LOTS of dogs. There was relatively little growling/barking at the big goofy humans trying to look like canines. Once again, I was accompanied by scritchwuff in his wolf suit. We were well received by everyone there. Kitty ended up collecting a whole bunch of swag for us which will all go to Mesa. Speaking of Mesa, he also had a fun time once again. Many butts were sniffed. Oh, and yes, my butt was sniffed a lot by the other dogs, much to the amusement of the crowd. Like last year there were constant comments of "Look! It's a dog walking a dog!" as I made my way with Mesa during the fun walk.
This year there were 3 other mascots in attendance; Louie Lobo from UNM, a dog from a grooming/boarding place, and the Magic FM bunny. We saved Louie's butt in that they didn't have a changing area for him so we allowed him to use our changing tent. I think the mascot from the grooming place liked being in a dog suit, but I had to reprimand her in pantomime for taking her head off during the performance. She lol'd.
And now PICS!
