RSPCA Million Paws Walk

Looking cool as 'Team Hawaii'

A few of the walkers stopped for a drink and a swim while others were just hanging out for a little friendly conversation as their humans waited patiently.

Sam with an old hero of mine. Norm, star of those 1970's 'Life be in it' adds. It was great to see him out there and looking great for his age.

And they're off...!

The RSPCA run an annual event called the Million Paws Walk.
The event starts at 8:30 in the morning near the cenotaph on the esplanade and involves a short walk with hundreds of other peole and dogs, through the main streets of Darwin. It is a fund raiser but also an opportunity to take the pound dogs for a walk and hopefully find a home for some of them.
We had a great day, there were dogs jumping into fountains, playing and pounding the street en-mass. Some people even formed groups; one imaginative group called itself Team Hawaii and wore Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts (including the dogs).
Our dog Kuta had a great time and didn't even start a fight! I think she could tell she was outnumbered.
