Well, some friends last week begged my wife and I to go to the Furry Five K.  Said we'd love it - we're dog lovers and love to do things for our Tom-Tom.  (2 and half year old Boxer).  So I gave in and decided to sacrifice what I knew was going to be a beautiful hiking day to go give Tommy some social time with 2500 other doggies.

Never again.  We got there around 9 AM and it was already swarming with people and animals of every shape and every size.  I love to people-watch, but even more, I love to dog-watch.  It was so much fun! ... For the first half hour or so.  Little did I know that we were going to try and meet up with four other doggies owners - and that they would all be late!  I could hardly find my wife standing ten feet away from me.  Finding four strangers I'd never met was impossible...

Anyway, I began to get quite frazzled as I tried to keep Tom-Tom from pulling my arm out of it's socket and wait around.   He just wanted to run and play.

It was pretty fun though, and I probably would do it again - if begged.  But I'd still rather be hiking.

TOTALLY!  We even joked about that sign as I ran Tommy up the slippery-slide.  I have a great photo of him doing the "doo"  right in front of one of those  "Leash-Curb and pick up after your pet" signs.

It would have been great if I could have just gone off with my dog and not had to stand around waiting for all those dang people.  The race would have been better too - instead of the walk.
