Guest post by Tetley the Dog (@TetleyBear on Instagram).
Hi there! My name is Tetley. I’m a dog.
So when Apt613 asked me to cover the Wiggle Waggle Walk and Run last weekend, I was like, “Yup!” It’s just my wheelhouse, you know? Also, the fundraiser is in its 30th year so, like many dogs in Ottawa, I’ve already been a few times.
You can’t see them, but there are about a hundred dogs in that picture. It’s because they all brought their humans with them, and dressed them in blue. This is usually how us dogs show our dominance over our humans: through displays of control.
This is more like it. This is my friend. He’s a bit shy but sometimes you’ll get a good smile from him. He looks like me because we might be related. We’re both of the goldendoodle persuasion, you see. Also, I think we have the same dad.
I also want to introduce you to my other friend, who also kind of looks like me:
He likes to photobomb. It happens all the time. What an odd guy.
Back to me, Tetley. There were a lot of dogs there, but I was the best and most handsome. And do you know why? It’s because I care more. I met some pretty cool dogs though. Here’s a couple of my favourites:
In the end, every single dog won and our squad, which my human named “Doods with Toods,” raised over $450 for the Ottawa Humane Society. You can still donate to us Doods over here, actually. Combined, all the humans that came out to the event raised $111,690.67. There were well over 1000 participants and more than 2000 donations. For a bunch of primates, that’s not bad.
So glad for this opportunity to support local dog things and to show everyone my ‘tude.
It’s pretty righteous, no? Todd thought I was pretty cool. I like Todd. Here’s Todd again:
