The 2014 Doggie Dash is now History

The 2014 Doggie Dash is now in the history books.  It was a little drizzly at the start, but it cleared up.  Everyone (including all the dogs) had a great time.  This year the Dash exceeded their target of $500,000 with a total of $504,294 donated.  Thank you to everyone who supported Calyso, Miss Jazelle, and me!

Here are a few pix of the Oregon Humane Society Doggie Dash on 14 May 2011 in downtown Portland.

The river is the Willamette. In the photo with the Steel Bridge in the background, the specks on the lower level of the bridge and on the far side of the river are the fellow “dashers”

After our current groomer hung up her shears, the quest is on for a new dog groomer, and one who can fit in with my work schedule.
