Furry Scurry in Denver with Zeb and Soapy Smith Duck

Every May, the Dumb Friends League sponsors a 2-mile walk for humans and dogs.   This is the biggest fundraiser for the Dumb Friends League.   This year there were over 12,000 humans, over 5,000 dogs and two Colorado Traveling Ducks.   Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 9:00 a.m.

The walk is held at Denver’s Washington Park.   The paths go around the lake.   The finish line is a welcome sight for dogs and humans.

Sheltering homeless pets is a great cause.   After the finish line, there were many booths.   A portion of all profits goes to the Dumb Friends League.   This is the first time we saw this Mobile Dog Wash.

Dogs need clothes, too.   The baseball cap can shade the eyes, or the bill can be flipped up.

The dog scarf is a fashion statement.   Large areas of Washington Park were designated play areas for dogs.   This obstacle course was fun to see.   This dog is not sure about going through the tunnel.
