Pet Walk 2010 Tempe Town Lake

Last Sunday was the annual PetSmart Pet Walk for PetSmart Charities.
We got to the Pet Walk an hour before things started hopping!
This is Dad, Hootie & me at the entrance.
Here is Colin, from our Dales & Friends Group,
with his and Donna's Dales, Lucy & Charlie.
More Airedales from our Dales & Friends Meetup group.

Here we are checking out one of the watering stations.

And another buddy from Dales & Friends. By the way, over half of the dogs from our group were adopted from the SouthWest Airedale Terrier Rescue (SWATR).

This is Donna with Charlie, manning the booth for SWATR.

Mommy with us in front of the SWATR stand.

What do you suppose Mommy is doing here??

This is the Bowzer Beer stand. Good stuff!

Here is Hootie saying hi to a 10 year old Welshie names Lala. She growled at him. hehe.

Ooooo this is the start of the 1 mile walk. That's what we did.

Well what do ya know?
There was a WFT at the start of the race who gave Hootie a good luck smooch!

The line of people & pooches seemed to stretch forever.

Another view of the hooman and poochie 1 mile walk.

Yes, Hootie had to leave plenty of pee-mail.

It was such a beautiful day for a walk.

See Dad & me? The line split in two so we took the low road
and Mommy & Hoots took the high road.

Here are some of the Dales & Friends stragglers!
We were on our way back when they were just starting.

More pics of the Dales & Friends.

We had to check out the water's edge.
Kinda murky, but it's fed by a canal, so what did ya expect?!

The guy leaning over is Eddie and he really likes Hootie.
So many Dales. Who is who??

The little Welshie on the left is Maxwell.
He's the same age as Hootie, but he weighs about 10# less.
Hootie is such a substantial guy!!
Here's a better pic so you can see the difference in their size.

This guy is an Irish Terrier that we just met on Sunday.
Is he the McGillinator?
Oops, no he doesn't smell like McGillicutty!

Lookie, I love to do high 5 for treats.
Hey, you're supposed to give me 5 too lady!! Well, as long as you give me a treat you can slide on the high 5.

This big Dane was so friendly. I'll post a collage of all the different breeds of pooches on a future post.

Here's Mom and the Hootster.

Did you notice our folks have on matching shirts? CORNY!! At least it was easier to not get them lost. hehe.

Well, that's it for now. We had a lovely time at the PetWalk again this year and hope to attend next year. "God willing and the canal don't rise." Sure hope you all have a great weekend!

Good idea getting team uniforms for mom and dad. Helps them keep track of each other for sure. So many terriers! That must have been a great time and of course a most important cause.


tula said...

the dales came out in force-- yikes! kinduv scurry! but the beer tent sure sounds good- maybe that's why i'm seeing double, triple, kazillion dales..gulp.

looks like a day of pure FUNBALLS!


houndstooth said...

Your mom and dad probably dressed alike just to embarrass you! It seems like something parents delight in.

That walk looks like tons of fun! There's no Petsmart walk here by us! I'm a bit put out with them now!


hkairedalespack said...

Wow, a crowd of humans and doggies with so many Airedales and terriers. A large turn out for a very good cause. We love your matching outfits.
Hugs, Miley and Mariah

BRUTUS said...

That's awesome!! And perfect weather too - we are SO jealous (even if your humans did wear corny matching shirts). Exercise, friends, and a good cause - what more could you ask for?? And I so totally want one of those bone-shaped pools that were in one of the first photos!!

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Oh Hootie,
You are such a good narrator. I loved the pictures of you on your walk. Your are most handsome and cute. I think you are a perfect size Welsh man.
Sally Ann

Baby Rocket dog,
You walk very well, and I think all the Dale men must adore you. We have been having fun in France.
Sally Ann

McGillicutty said...

Baby Rocket Dog,

Yep, he didn't smell like Guinness, huh? Me thinks he was not as handsome (or devilish) as I either! I bet you guys had a blast, man! I LOVE those walk events. All the other dogs and smells and treats...oh, and the walk! Nice of you to think of me today!

Irish Love,

Twinkietinydog said...

Dang, Mango stole my uniform joke. Fine, I loved all the photos and had a great visit myself. Is there something serious going on between the Eddie and our Hootie? Oh, before I go: I (heart) SWATR

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Thanks fur sharing that!

I'm going to paw that off to my Auntie Di since she lives in Phoenix!

All those 'dales and other pals!


Of khourse, my mom would be at the beer tent TOO!

Why is THAT?


Martha and Bailey said...

We cannot believe your Mom and Dad wore the same shirt!
Talk about embarrassing you guys.
We loved those pics, happy humans and happy dogs!
All walking in the beautiful sunshine - we are so very jealous!
We have to tell you our parents would be smiling at the beer tent too......

Checkers said...

what a pawsome walk - I probably would have ridden in my stroller - but mom coulda used the walk :-)

The OP Pack said...

That's a lot of dales there and all so good-looking!!! It looks like it was a great day for a good walk.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Kari in WeHo said...

oh wow that looks like it was lots of fun!

Agatha and Archie said...

Well that certainly looked like a blast and we particularily liked the bone watering holes however we do have a comment..What is up with the humans talking about our weight? PL2 is all jiggy because I sort of gained a little wight..SO WHAT BIG DEAL WHO CARES....(how was that Hootie?? good enough ??) Love Agatha and her stupid skinnier brother who is always in trouble

K9friend said...

Great pictures! Looks like you had a beautiful day and fantastic turnout. I'm sure a lot of money was raised!

Sherry said...

That looked like SUCH a fun day. Maybe next year Mom & Dad will wear black and tan to match the dogs.

Cassie said...

Oh that's a good idea about the black & tan Alanis & Miro!! I'm sure our pooches would appreciate that.haha.x-cassie

Fat, Female and Forty said...

Thanks for visiting! Your owner has the best kind of kids. If only we could all be like our sweet canines! Your blog made me laugh and I loved the pee mail comment. My dog is a boy and he squats when he pees. Is that unnatural? Could he be gay? Not that I would love him any less if he was. ;-)

Butchy, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie said...

Oh boy, so many lovely terriers all in one place, doggie bliss! That is so cool that so many people showed up for the cause. We're glad the weather was nice for the walk. Now just how could you tell all of those airedales apart if they all stood together??? hehehehe!

Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
Butchy, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby & Hootie

Clive said...

Life With Dogs said...

I have never had a chance to visit your neck of the woods, but it looks beautiful. I'd love to have a similar event out here. Looks like a blast...

Sierra Rose said...
