    We did it! I think we walked 3 miles, Dante did great! I even had the checkpoint vets look at him, and they said he was great! Didn't even tug, and we saw so many neat dogs. My friends walked with me and brought their dogs as well. I raised $522 for homeless pets, and at 11:00 am, the total was up to $87,000!!! I'm so happy we did it! I'll have to take pictures of the prizes we won as well.
