Dogs Runneth Over (Pet Express Doggie Run 2011)

{Dogs (and dog owners) of all kinds and sizes, all revved up to run!}

Last March 26, 2011, dog of all breeds and sizes flocked over (or should I say pack?) to the SMX/Mall of Asia grounds to compete in the biggest dog running event in the counry- the Pet Express Doggie Run 2011.

As early as 4:30 AM, runners and their two-legged running buddies were already milling around the game booths scoring freebies and having their snapshots taken. A very nonchalant noo-nee-noo-nee-noo move while secretly sniffing out their competition- literally.

Around 500 canines were present for the 1.5/3/5K races, bringing along their own sets of equally excited human runners and cheerleaders. There wasn't a tail that wasn't wagging happily from the time the gunstart went off, to the time those furry feet crossed the finish line. Truly a day to remember for pets and pet lovers who participated.

It was overwhelmingly awesome- and that was just me sitting on the sidelines. ;)
