Dog N Jog: Fight to Keep Fido Fit

September 21, 2010

Does your furry friend spend hours in front of the tube watching hours of Scooby-Doo and wishing he could join in the fun?  Or perhaps drooling over the thought of his next treat?  Couch potatoes and potato chips are not just a human problem, so it’s time to get Fido out of the house and join us for the Dog ‘N’ Jog Fun Run, 5K & 10K “Fight to Keep Fido Fit” in support of the One Health Initiative.
