(2 Million) Dog(s) Tired

Posted by Erich Trapp on November 18, 2010

Our friend Bette Allen, owner of Tiny Growl, sums up her experience organizing the puppy up! Walk in her part of the world. It’s a great post and here’s just a taste. For the rest please follow this link.

Sundy Holland, Bailey and Syd.

It’s been nearly two weeks since my last post.  Other than when I first began blogging, I don’t think I’ve ever been quiet for quite so long.  I do apologize to my loyal readers, but it’s taken me all this time just to feel “normal” again.  The 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! Walk was Sunday, November 7th and I can honestly say that I’ve never worked harder on anything in my life.  I’ve organized events before, but never for

Bette Allen and the puppy up! Crew from Seattle.

charity and never with a crew of less than a dozen people.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: fundraising ain’t no place for sissies.  You can quote me.  One nice side-effect is that I’ve lost nearly 10 lbs.  I call it the 501(c)3 diet and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

The people that came to support Luke’s cause and walked with us on November 7th were there for those that they had lost.  They carried pictures of their dogs, held leashes that once connected them to their boys and girls and carried the memory of that loss with them as they walked.

Thanks to Bette and the folks in Seattle who came out and walked.

And thanks to all our City Leaders who put so much time and effort into such a great cause!

If you’d like to organize a Walk in your city or town for next year, or get People Tags.involved in any of our activities and events, please contact us through our web site.
