Thanksgiving for Dog Lovers


We’ve had a tradition for several years now to walk with the Fathers Joe’s charity walk here in San Diego.  Its a nice walk through Balboa Park and our local neighborhood so its easy and always fun.

We head to the start line....

The whole local community turns out to support the run.  I liked this scene as it spoke to me about the America that I know – not the one we heard so much about during the election…..

The highlight for me every year is not the exercise or the uniformly beautiful mornings we always seem to have – it is the dogs that are out walking their people.  They are large….

Some of them mugged for the camera and the paparazzi ……

While other pets just watched the procession go by from their royal perches….

In any case, it is always a great way to start the holiday.  I hope that your turkey day was great and that you enjoy the rest of the season.

Gotta go.....!
