Tuesday, June 10, 2008, 09:42 PM ( 72 views ) - Posted by AdministratorDo you have a black dog? Are you ready to get out and walk now that it's finally summer? We meet at Lake Calhoun to walk once a week, for fun, for exercise and to meet other dog owners.
WHO: Anyone with one or more black 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 IN FRONT OF the Lake Calhoun Pavilion, by the picnic tables in front of the concession area.
WHEN: This Sunday, June 15th, 10:30 a.m.
WHY: Black dogs are often the last to be adopted and are euthanised in much larger numbers than other dogs. They are frequently overlooked by potential adopters may consider them to "plain," think that they appear more menacing, or they may simply not see them because thier darker color makes them disappear in their kennels. 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, AT A NEW TIME 10:30 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: 6/29, 7/6, 7/13, 7/20. August dates will be posted soon!
