Saturday was the [rescheduled] first annual Deep Ellum Pup Crawl. It was just as it sounds – a walk from dog-friendly patio to dog-friendly patio on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Not a bad way to spend the day! There was a great turnout, everybody had a lot of fun, and funds were raised for the renovation of the Deep Ellum Bark Park.
Belle and I missed the first couple stops, but by the time we caught up with the group, it was going strong. Belle made it through a couple stops with me before I ran her home (she’s fantastic in crowds of people, but I have to watch her pretty closely in crowds of dogs — she behaved very well though!). I returned to the last stop – the Double Wide – with camera in hand. As always, I took a ton of shots — I wish I’d taken photos throughout the whole afternoon, but I decided to keep my attention on Belle when she was in tow. [On a side note, I really want to use the Double Wide for a regular session — I couldn’t take true advantage of a lot of it this weekend because of all the people, but I think it’d make for some super fun shots.]
It’s always so great to see so many well-behaved, well-loved dogs hanging out. I got to meet a mala-mutt, a poodle posse, the owner of the world’s cutest underbite, Bonnie & Clyde, and a whole host of other fabulous creatures.
