Strut Your Mutt

This past weekend Diesel and I went to "No More Homeless Pets in Utah" annual Strut Your Mutt. It was held at Sugarhouse Park. It was 1.5 mile walk with your dog around Sugarhouse Park as well as booths and dog shows. Diesel was pretty tired after the walk but he finished the whole thing!! All proceeds went to NMHPU to help end the euthanasia of homeless dogs and cats statewide. When No More Homeless Pets in Utah started in 2000, 46,000 animals were euthanized each year in Utah shelters. Now, 8 years later, that number has dropped to 33,000. Hopefully that number can continue to decrease. This is my first year doing it but I look forward to many more years.

This is one pooped pup!

There were a TON of other dogs and Diesel really enjoyed seeing all the different breeds. We even saw a few Bassett Hounds. :)

Hey Jess! I love your pup, he is cute! And that is so awesome that you took part in that charity for the homeless animals! I'm glad you are on here too, it is great to see what everyone is up to!
