Petwalk was such fun!

But so tiring! :P It was only a three mile long walk, but having to get up at 5am on a Sunday made the course feel that much longer for some strange reason... :P Sydney really surprised us and seemed to adjust well to the 500 or so other dogs around her. She was also quite a trouper and really only had to be carried for a few yards down the home stretch (it could only be a few yards because at 22 pounds she was a little too heavy for me to lug all the way to the finish line...) :P

I saw a few dogs who stopped in the middle of the course and just sat there - refusing to go any further - and I really felt for the owners. Most of those dogs weren't small (and easily carried) and as much as the owners tried to prod them along - it was no use. Some of them had to leave the course and others just had to sit there as everyone else passed them by... :( I was really lucky that Sydney was at least able to make it across the finish line. :)

AND I dusted off my serious camera for the first time in a LONG time and had a lot of fun taking pictures. :) There were tons of dogs dressed in cute costumes and there were so many opportunities for great photos... but my favorite subject all day was still Sydney. :)

We were pretty worn out when we got home that all three of us immediately fell asleep. :P Mark got up for a bit in the early evening, but Sydney and I were pretty out of it the whole rest of the night. :P

I'm not sure how much money was raised for the Hawaiian Humane Society, but it always warms my heart to see so many animal lovers out raising money for such a great cause. :) I can't wait to do this all over again next year... though I'm sure Mark and Sydney probably can. ;)
