The RSPCA has emailed in the joyous news that this very day the sainted Mary Porter will be launching the 2010 Million Paws Walk.

The following details were provided:

    · RSPCA celebrates Million Paws Walk number 16 on 16 May 2010

    · In 2009 more than 9,000 people and 3,500 dogs attended the event

    · RSPCA ACT raised $150,000 for the event. All funds raised stay in Canberra.

    · More than $1m was raised nationally last year.

    · The walk commences at Stage 88 at 11.00am on the day, and proceeds clockwise around the central basin of Lake Burley Griffin.

    · Walkers enjoy magnificent autumn colours and the stunning architecture of sculptures and buildings along the lake’s shore.

    · The walk takes about an hour.

    · Extensive afternoon entertainment is offered at stage 88 after the walk.

    · You don’t need a dog to walk, simply walking and registering assists RSPCA’s efforts

    · TAMS has provided up to $10,000 sponsorship for MPW in recent years

Firstly that is and absolutely AWESOME cake!

Secondly can the poster (Riot’s esteemed editor) confirm or deny if that is the ‘Kelpie of Few Accomplishments’ lying on the ground in the first photo?

Avoid the queues on the day and register online at It’s cheaper if you register by May 5 too.

Can’t wait – it’s such a fun day!!!
