Million Paws Walk

By Kerces - 20 May 2007 6

The RSPCA’s annual major fundraiser was on today, the Million Paws Walk. I’ve never been to one before, but I understand in Canberra it has migrated in recent years from Lake Ginninderra to Lake Burley Griffin.

I’m not sure there were a million paws in Canberra, but there sure were a lot and most bought four feet with them.

The registration area was at Stage 88, which got progressively fuller as it got close to the start time of 11am.

There was a plethora of dog-related things for sale, as well as the odd tent selling genuine human stuff.

Some stalls had apparently gone out of their way to not sell dog items.

There were also tents not selling anything, which we found out later were the corporate boxes.

schmerica – I think it was just decoration. Another from WIN news had an antenne on it.. But sadly i dont think the pooch would be able to have his own TV, or a working solar panel on the other.

Gawd but the speeches were something dire.

Thankfully no-one listened.

I sincerely hope none of our registration money was spent on Ita Buttrose who received almost no applause from in front of the stage at the end of her drone.

Does it have a solar pannel thing on it or is it just a decoration?

That ActewAGL doghouse looked cool (the one with the red roof – last pic) It even had a gtter on it to collect rain water and drain straight into a doggy bowl!! Cant believe that it went for $400.. while most of the others went for only $100… Wasnt there for the walk.. rocked up right at the end.. but disapointed with the stalls…

My dogs are too naughty (sigh) Went later round 3pm and ran around the 5km circuit with the hounds.

That looks like fun!

I wish my dog would walk on a lead and wasnt petrified of every other dog around.

Nice pictures! Love the dog thats been dyed and the dress up baby.

Looks like it was a good day anyway!
