Shepparton will host its ninth RSPCA Million Paws Walk on Sunday.CHLOE WARBURTON May 16, 2014 3:57am
Keen to stretch legs: Katrina Kim-Worley and Jenny Harmes will take Deedee, Lucylou, Sugar, Cookies and Diesel to Sunday's Shepparton Million Paws Walk at Victoria Park Lake.
Sunday will be a day for Deedee the pug to flaunt his finest bumblebee outfit as he walks alongside his canine friends for the RSPCA Million Paws Walk.
Katrina Kim-Worley adopted Deedee — whose name means ‘‘little brother’’ — and he is part of the family with pug Lucylou and chihuahua Sugar, otherwise known as the matriarch.
‘‘Sugar will be coming along and will be carried, then walked, then carried, but she has a good go,’’ Mrs Kim-Worley said.
The pugtastic pair and their chihuahua overlord are part of the RACV team, which has participated in the Million Paws Walk in Shepparton for five years.
Mrs Kim-Worley is involved with pug rescue and said the Million Paws Walk raised money for a good cause.
‘‘It’s good fun and a good day out — Tony Mac does a fantastic job of organising it,’’ she said.
‘‘I love looking at the other doggies — you see so many different animals there too, and there’s always great supporters on the day. We love seeing Stacey’s Massage 4 Paws there. Sugar has arthritis and has improved so much since we started seeing Stacey, so she’s our hero.’’
In its ninth year in the Goulburn Valley, the event gives owners and their dogs the chance to raise funds for animal welfare, RSPCA shelters, vet clinics and community education programs.
This year, the RSPCA hopes to raise more than $480
Mrs Kim-Worley said her dogs brightened her life.
‘‘They’re loving and they’re always happy to see you — dogs never put their bad days on you,’’ she said.
