The Zany Doodles team gathered once again at Magnusson Park in Seattle to participate in the 18th Annual 5k PAWSwalk. The weather
was a warm 85° but the walk meanders around Lake Washington so there were plenty of splash breaks available. There were over
1500 in attendance and the event rose over $185,000.
Zany Doodles was a sponsor at the Go Dog, Go Kirkland Canine Festival. This was the 1st annual event for the City of Kirkland in
conjunction with Kirkland Dog Offleash Group (K-Dog) and Washington Owners of Flying Disc Dogs (WOOFD2). It was a day of fun with
flyball and agility demonstrations and the Cascade Classic Canine Disc Championship.
The Zany Doodles Team walked in The Seattle Animal Shelter’s 10th Annual Furry 5k Fun Run and Walk. The event was held at Seattle’s
Seward Park. The Furry 5k raises money for the Help the Animals Fund (HTAF), which provides veterinary care and supplies for sick,
injured or abused orphaned shelter animals. This year there were approximately 2,800 runners and walkers, 1,500 dogs, 1 cat and 1 bird.
The event rose over $120,000.
Jack and Lucy, our Goldendoodles, are featured in the Summer issue of Fido Friendly. The article featured Bow Wow Backyard makeovers.
We took an unused corner of the yard, built a deck, sunk in an old jet tub, connected to a sump pump for drainage and transformed that
corner to a cleaner, more dog-friendly area. It took a couple of weekends but was well worth it in the long run.
The Zany Doodles team walked in the 6th Annual Walk for the Animals hosted by the Seattle Humane Society. The 5k walk starts at
University Village in Seattle and continues along the Burke-Gilman Trail. The fundraiser raises much need funds for the care of
abandoned pets at the Seattle Humane Society.
