An Adventure of the Bold & Bizarre
Categories: Community Events
So I had the opportunity to participate in the Síclovía fun on Sunday and boy was it an eye-popping adventure! The Animal Defense League provided the water for the dogs who came with their people that day. I saw all kinds of dogs from Great Danes to teacup Yorkies keeping pace during the event. The ADL even got quite a few shout-outs from people who support our mission! I’m told there were 45,000 people and a decent chunk of them brought their 4-legged friends. Honestly, I felt like I was watching a Dr. Seuss book come to life. You had to be there to see some of the amazing and bizarre devices people were riding! I say mobile elliptical machine, tandem bikes of all kinds, chopper bikes, skateboards that looked like something Marty McFly had in the future and so much more! People had their dogs in baby buggies, attached to their bikes in baskets or running along with them. And what’s even better … the dogs were leashed and their owners picked up after them! I really enjoyed meeting all of the dog owners and their four-legged friends. Yes, it was chilly that day, but it really warms the heart to see people spending quality time with their dogs and doing so responsibly!
