Last weekend I dusted off my walking shoes and put on one of my costumes and hit the pavement. I was among many other humans and K9s walking to help raise money for Provide Animals With Shelter (PAWS). PAWS funds care and shelter to stray/surrendered animals in a rural area of South Central Minnesota until adoption. Every October, PAWS host a fundraising Halloween Trick or Treat walk and I wasn’t about to miss it.
While my mom was signing us up, I decided to test out the kissing booth. Unfortunately, I had no takers for a smooch on the cheek.
What would a trick or treat walk be without some yummy treats? Our first stop brought us to a local cafe where they made us pups some great treats!
Along the way we walked through some colorful falling leaves.
This was my favorite table, how am I suppose to only choose two squeaky toys. I finally did decide and away we headed to our next stop. There were a total of 8 or 9 tables all having great stuff to choose from for both humans and dogs.
Here is a college of pictures from the walk. I especially like the photo on the bottom right that says “HI” on the sidewalk.
After the walk was over we all headed back to the park where we enjoyed music, fellowship, and our humans received complementary hot dogs. Finally it was time for the costume contest to start. There were so many great costumes that day. When we heard I was the winner I couldn’t believe my ears.
I may have won the contest but the real winners are the animals at the shelter. And the real heroes don’t wear capes, instead, they are all those who help these animals in need day in and day out.
