The Mutts Did Strut

Today was the 2009 Mutt Strut for the Humane Society of Indianapolis. It was the perfect day for it! They were expecting 6,000 dogs and their owners to the event and there were at least that many in attendance. Big dogs, little dogs of all shapes making their way around the turns. It is a great event because not only is it for the Humane Society but it is at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, home of the Indy 500. I don't know why I find it so humorous to see dogs on the track. I think it has something to do with the fact that next week there are going to be cars going 220 mph on it! The weather was perfect; if not a little too warm. Luckily, the wind kicked up and cooled everyone down a little bit.

There was also a carnival atmosphere off the track. There was a DJ playing 'Who Let the Dogs Out', Clifford the Big Red Dog, and the doggy mascots of the local sports teams. It was a great day and Hawkins is one pooped pup!

Looks like fun! I wonder how Wrigley would react to that many dogs??
