DUKAL participated in, as well as was a proud sponsor of the 2nd Annual Hounds on the Sound Dog Walk event which was held on October 2nd.
The DUKAL 2010 Make A Difference campaign continues to make great strides! Hounds on the Sound is a collaboration between the New Rochelle Humane Society and Pet Rescue. They teamed up to host this walk to raise funds for cats and dogs in need. Proceeds from the event will benefit both organizations. The walk had a great turn out with over 600 walkers and dogs walking hand in paw for a great cause.
Kiki, my mixed breed and I were joined by fellow DUKAL animal lovers along with their dogs and made the trip to Glen Island Park in New Rochelle, NY. What a fantastic venue to support such an event! The walking paths followed the perimeter of the island which sits overlooking Long Island Sound. In addition to the walk, there were over 40 vendors with great products and services for our four legged friends. Add in the food and the music and you could not have asked for a better day!
Kiki didn’t know what to think of the event at first as she doesn’t get out much and is basically the queen of our castle. She did enjoy sharing the car ride with Bailey who is a puggle and is far more reserved than Kiki, and was the least bit phased by all the commotion of the day. But then introduce Wagner a full grown black lab who only wanted to play with every other dog in sight and we had ourselves a dog gone good time!!
If you get a chance to attend one of these events I highly recommend it! Nothing beats spending a beautiful day with some special people and your most loyal friend!
