RSPCA Million Paws Walk

last weekend we ditched our sunday morning sleep in to join thousands of others (2 legged & 4 legged alike!) at the RSPCA Million Paws Walk. it’s an annual event held Australia wide & we’ve been meaning to sign up for the past few years, so this year we finally looked up our local event, registered & wandered on over to Albert Park Lake with our little fur-baby.
kerouac can sometimes be a little on the grumpy side (when it comes to small fluffy dogs that is. she loves humans! pretty sure she thinks she is human!) so we had high hopes that she would behave herself for this very doggy outing – & she definitely didn’t disappoint!
i’m actually not sure how she managed to be so calm considering the monstrous crowd – i guess she was just overwhelmed with all the sights, smells & pups! the race began while we were still making our way to the starting line!
and they’re off
look at that huge grin!
the long trail of pups & people stretched half way around the lake – such a sight to see!

and here’s a pic of me looking ridiculously tired (can i add that this was pre-caffiene & well into our second hour of walking? haha)
the RSPCA did such a brilliant job – the Million Paws Walk was a total success raising over half a million dollars in Victoria alone! all three of us had a blast & although we humans were pooped, pups seemed to be on some sort of a high! so much for tuckering her out! haha
Make sure you check out their website & sign up yourself – it really is such a great cause!

(is it weird that i didn’t recognise myself in this pic? does anyone else ever do that? hmmm…)

Farmers Market Outfit

farmers market 1
oh hai!
Saturday morning Mikey, pup & i headed to the farmers market so i could stock up on eggs & pretty daffodils! (no seriously – i’m slightly obsessed by these eggs! they’re soooo delicious!)
farmers market 4
we tried a few different angles but pup seemed intent on looking away from the camera…
farmers market 3
she also pulled me into this giant log a few times & almost smashed all the eggs i was attempting to hold. thankfully i was still a bit sleepy & all i did was laugh…as you can see this had no effect on her focus away from the camera!
farmers market 2
no matter how hard we tried, pup remained focused on not focusing on us…until…
farmers market 5
success! (though please ignore my face….!)

also, the only full body (non-blurry) shot we managed to snap was this one
market outfit
…which happens to be my least favourite out of them all!
oh well!
that’s what happens when you’re holding 4 dozen eggs & trying to control a hyper pup at the same time!
