The shelter that Nunzio (Nunzi) came from hosted a "Petwalk" to raise awareness of homeless pets and to earn money for shelter care for their rescues. Nunzi and I decided to enter the walk. It was most informal - we just showed up with a contribution to do what we could in a very beautiful setting - our lovely San Diego Botanic Garden. Since I am a supporter of both the shelter and the garden it was easy to commit to the cause. We joined the walk at 8 a.m. and were met by a wonderful array of dog citizens, most of them looking like mutts of some sort - big, midsize and little and they all received each other graciously - with a sniff and a wag. Nunzi does that well.
It was a hilly 5K winding through the garden and we walked as far as was comfortable for my little man. Then Nunzi decided to take a rest on a bench to watch the other dogs go by. We made our statement for a good cause and went home satisfied that we had "done our part". By the way his shirt says "There's a New Boss in Town" and he certainly thinks he is!
