Run, Ruff & Roll Over, Rover! @ Doggie Run 2013

{Pet Express Doggie Run 2013}
This little pet project is getting bigger and bigger year after year! Doggie Run 2011 had an impressive turn out with 500 canine runners. Last year, it got bigger and better (the finisher doggie medal was awesome!) with 800 dogs. Now on it's 3rd run, we're looking at a whopping 1000 dogs. And it even leveled up with a timing chip! O, diba? Can you say feeling pro??? :) haha. 

So, start training your four-legged running buddy and troop over to SM Mall of Asia on March 23, 2013 (Saturday). Newbie doggie runners need not fret, they can enjoy an easy 1.5K fun run. If you think your dog (and you) are fit enough, then level up and do the 3K run. And last but not the least, there's the 5K distance for elite doggie runners. 

Just a friendly reminder though, let's all remember to always keep our doggie's disposition in mind. Are they dehydrated? Tired? Don't force 'em if they refuse to run. Remember, dogs can't talk (well, unless you're a dog whisperer like Cesar Millan). So, always be vigilant and check if they can still go on. If not, just leisurely stroll along the picturesque Manila Bay and make new doggie friends along the way. ;)

Hope more people support the Doggie Run this year. Aside from the timing chip, a new event-- Flyball, which is a dog team relay game, will be introduced in an exhibition game as well. Exciting! 

More dogs/runners = More funds to raise for PAWS (The Philippine Animal Welfare Society)

P.S. Watch this video for some Doggie Run fun!
