Pawsitive response to big dog walk By Soumya Bhamidipati, MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Oriental Bay was overrun with chaos and excitement last Saturday as thousands of people and pooches attended this year’s “Big Dog Walk With Lots of Dogs”. The aim of the event was for people and dogs to come together, and to raise money for charity organisa-

tion Helping You Help Animals (HUHA). Event creator and comedian Alice Brine said this year’s event was “so much bigger” than last years. She believed more people gathered before this year’s event had begun than had participated last year, and said more were still to come. Dog owner Kerry Bailey brought her two pugs, Pugsley and Wednes-

day. Bailey said it was a great opportunity to socialise the dogs and a good chance to spend some quality time together. “We’ve got a small baby so it’s nice to spend some time with [Pugsley and Wednesday].” This year simultaneous Big Dog Walk events were held in Wellington, Auckland, Hamilton and Napier.

Many dog owners agreed that it was a good Agnes the miniature schnoodle has an Instaopportunity for dogs to socialise. Those who gram following of 350 people and has attended did not own their own dogs said it was a good both ‘Big Dog Walk’ events opportunity to interact with them.
