Walk your dog for a good cause

Desert dog lovers who want to raise money for a good cause by simply walking a mile with their pooch can do so Saturday. The walk includes a pancake breakfast (for humans only), a complimentary doggie bag and bandanna and a demonstration from the Tucson Police Department K-9s.

Including pets in fundraisers is a great idea. I’m more inclined to participate in outdoor – or any – activities if I can bring my dogs. For the record, we’ve only been banned from three places so far.

Dogs should be included in other fundraisers and community activities. Canines would be ideal for:

• Digging and ripping out buffelgrass

• Begging for spare change

• Dragging out trash and carcasses from area washes

• Ridding markets and gardens of unwanted cucumbers

What community or fundraising activity would your pet best perform?
