Get Your Wiggle On

Sep 8, 2009

A shaggy guy takes a break to watch the walkers.

No one likes a walk around the Rose Bowl more than a dog, and on September 27th, the 5K walking route around Brookside and the Rose Bowl will be full of more happy dogs than you can possibly imagine.

That’s right, it’s time for the annual Wiggle Waggle Walk, one of the highlights of the fall season in Pasadena. The beneficiary is, of course, the Pasadena Humane Society, one of the finest animal shelters in the country, and a lifeline for many pets and their owners during the recent wildfires (it took in hundreds of evacuated animals).

You can help in many ways: sign up (with your dog) as a walker, start a team of walkers, sponsor a walker or help that day with anything from entertainment, to manning the Doggie Pool, to assisting with the Ugly Dog Contest or Costume Contest. To take part, go to
