See y’all in Austin!

We’re working our way West and looking forward to meeting Hudson and Murphy this weekend at the cookout to help kick off their 2,000 mile walk with the Big Dog. We’ve finally nailed down a location in with some shelter just in case it’s raining.


Zilker Park Map

Join us from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. this Saturday, February 16 in the Pecan Grove picnic area at Zilker Park in Austin, TX. Pecan Grove is just East of the playscape to the left as you enter Zilker Park from Barton Springs Dr. This informal event is just a get-together to meet all the volunteers that are making this amazing walk for a cure possible.

Bring your leash and have your people bring some food for the grill or a side dish and some spare change if possible. The event is totally free and all are welcome but we will have a raffle for some of the SynFlex glucosamine supplement I’ve been taking as well as some other goodies. We will also be taking orders for the new Tripawds book now available! Stay tuned for more details on that. See y’all at there! Download PDF map of Zilker Park.
