Waldo's Day Out

Waldo and mommee went to the Walk for Strays, a walk benefitting a local no-kill shelter in our area.  We have done this walk for the past 2 years, and always enjoy it.  This year, Waldo and Mommee walked alone.  Gus has been having some leg issues: if he walks too far, he gets a limp.  So mommee has been limiting his activities for now.

So Waldo and mommee had a Waldo's Day Out!  Lots of people at the park recognized Waldo.  Of course there were the normal comments of "Wow! What a big dog!"  That is, until we entered Waldo in the "Tallest Dog Contest".  Waldo didn't even place!!

The winner of the Tallest Dog contest was.....get this.....10 inches taller at the withers than Waldo.  10 INCHES!!

Waldo did win 3rd prize in the Longest Tail contest.  Go, Waldo!

Mommee didn't take her camera with her to the walk--something about it maybe raining.  So you will have to imagine the super huge doggies that were there!
