Laura  ~  Pets ARE  people too!  I am hoping that the community will give some of these pets a home. 

Joni ~  I planned to get to Walktoberfest.. and then an offer came in.. and it started to rain!  I didn't make it and I hope that the rain didn't result in a low turnout.

George ~  The Walktoberfest is over 25 year old.. and it is a popular event.  Our 4 legged friends deserve a day of celebration!

Lynn911 ~  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope that some pets found new homes.. It is always important to check out the shelter and this shelter has an great reputation.

I love these plays on words when it comes to animal events.  This should be a fun time.

What a fabulous, wonderful idea! I've been to certain communities where they have dog parades, or Easter for pets, or halloween for pets. And surprisingly, the pets are so well-behaved during these events. It will be such fun for the pets and their humans.

Joan, Your event sounds terrific.  I have gone to several at the Hennepin County Humane Society and, it is a riot to see some of these dogs!  They are certainly have a great time, even if the occasional owner is not.

Jennifer -- Walktoberfest is a very popular event.  Too bad mother nature made it difficult to enjoy this year.

Debe ~~  A dogtoberfest is very clever indeed.  It's great to have events that include our 4 legged friends.

Suzanne ~  The dogs certainly know it is a festival all about them!  The humans usually enjoy the day, but it really is for a day for the dogs.

Monday is my Happiness Day.
I visit as many blog posts as I can throughout the day
and spread happiness, which means I probably didn’t read this post.
I just stopped by to spread some happiness.
Feel free to delete this comment if it doesn’t make you happy.

Happy Day!

Now I'm wondering what a flex lead is, although since all I have is an indoor cat, I guess I don't need to worry.
