The weather was perfect, the day was grand. Attendance was great - many dogs, many humans, and one cat.
Meet Ninja Bob.
Our friend Cora works at Coalition Humane, Tacoma's low cost spay and neuter clinic. Ninja Bob is on staff at Coalition Humane too, I think he's official title is "King of the Clinic".
Bob spends his days surrounded by many dogs, so attending Dog-A-Thon, didn't stress him out one bit.
He knows how to deal with dogs, and he met many that day.
He also "met" Charlene.
So Cora, Ninja Bob, our friend Monica, teammates Sarah and Shana, Shana's husband Jim and their pup, Blixa, Craig and I all set off to walk the walk together.
This is Blixa.
Bob is a special cat. He has just three legs and only a partial tail. He's quite mobile though, and had no problems at all taking on the trail.
He did have a little trouble keeping his focus, so Craig picked a piece of tall grass and drug it along the path to grab Bob's attention and keep him moving along.
That worked for awhile, but then Bob decided to duck into the weeds and lurk.
So we took turns carrying Bob the rest of the route.
