Wednesday, June 4, 2008, 08:09 AM ( 63 views ) - Posted by AdministratorWho's tired of the rain? WE ARE! So grab your black dog and get down to the Lake Calhoun Pavilion this Sunday, June 8th at 10:00 a.m. and let's get walkin'! Don't let all the little cloud-and-lightening icons on the Kare 11 Weather page fool you. We're bound to get a semi-sunny hour or two Sunday morning.
WHO: Anyone with one or more black dogs or black foster dogs.
WHAT: A casual walk with our black dogs around Lake Calhoun, or as far as you want to go. We want to get a good sized group of black dogs walking the lake - eventually this will get attention! You don't see that everyday.
WHERE: Meet at the Lake Calhoun Pavilion.
WHEN: This Sunday, June 8th, 10:00 a.m.
WHY: Black dogs are often the last to be adopted and ate euthanised in much larger numbers than other dogs. We want black dogs to become more visible and a little black dog herd marching around the lake is a step in the right direction. It's also a great way to get exposure for dogs awaiting adoption.
Future walk dates are planned at this time on Sundays, all at 10:00 a.m. at Lake Calhoun unless we decide to switch it up a little. Lakes of the Isles, Cedar Lake, and Lake Nokomis - all could use a little black dog infusion.
FUTURE DATES: 6/15, 6/29, 7/6, 7/13, 7/20. August dates will be posted soon!
