Saturday was a day full of events in Corvallis. What better way to begin the day than to participate in the 1st Annual Huff & Ruff Dog Walk/Run organized by the Corvallis Chamber of Commerce to benefit the Heartland Humane Society. Marcy Eastham, Corvallis Chamber President along with Chamber Board member Inga King were busy getting all of the contestants ready for their chance to see who the "Top Dog" really is!
More than 100 dogs of all sizes and shapes entered along with their obedient masters. Some entrants were more laid back than others and some would rather have stayed in the watering trough. Well, after some nervous moments before the start of this run/walk the contestants had little trouble once the starting gun sounded.
The course began near the downtown Corvallis Skate Park and continued to Avery Park and back again, about two miles. It sure looked to me that nearly all the runners had a great morning, even the human entrants!
A well deserved "Thank You" to everyone that worked so hard to make it a great event and to all of the sponsors as well.
