Last Saturday, March 9th, was the 7th Annual Paws In Motion Walk-A-Thon for The Humane Society of Manatee County. This was the third year I have covered the event for the HSMC. The event was moved down the road to Bradenton's Riverwalk this year. The new location was perfect, with plenty of room for pets and their people to play and relax after the walk.
Aside from the awesome food trucks and vendors, the HSMC added a "Doggy Fun Zone" for the dogs to test out their agility and lure skills. What a great way to spend a beautiful Saturday morning here in Florida, walking for such a great cause. The Humane Society raised over $53,000 at this event! The individual that raised the most donations this year gets to have their pet be the official "Spokes-Dog" for 2014 and photographed by yours truly! I can't wait to meet this lucky dog! Thank you and Congratulations to the HSMC for such a fun event!
Here are a few of the many moments I captured throughout the morning. If you don't see your pooch's photo below, don't worry, I have a complete gallery posted HERE. [http://www.dogstreetphoto.com/gallery/event-galleries/paws-in-motion-2013]

Last Saturday, March 24th, was the Annual Paws in Motion Walk-A-Thon to benefit the Humane Society of Manatee County. This is the second year in a row that I have covered the event for the HSMC in beautiful downtown Bradenton, and once again was fantastic turnout. So many of you raised money and came out on picture perfect Saturday morning to show your support. Bravo!
I'm still not sure it was the best idea to stand in front of everyone as the walk began. I sure got a lot of wet kisses as they passed me and certainly posed for an interesting perspective. And there off...
Almost as soon as it started, dogs and their people began to cross the finish line.
After the walk, the party was just getting started. There was plenty cooling off to do,
gossip to share,
kisses to give, butts to smell,
and libations to be had.
There was even a kissing booth and tricks to show off.
This super smart cookie was trained to throw the trash away. I wish I could teach Nyla to do that.
Many of the HSMC volunteers walked with some of the shelter's residents.
This is Starbux. His person, Daniel raised the most pledges for the event! Way to go Daniel! Starbux will be the official "spokes-dog" for next years event. He gets a special photo session with yours truly later in the week.
Here are all the many sweet faces I met throughout the morning. All of the images are available for purchase. If you are interested in purchasing a print, you can contact me HERE.
