‘PAWS ON THE PAVEMENT’
8 a.m., Murray Park.

This morning found another one of those forwarded, jokey e-mails in my inbox. The subject was “Who is your real friend?” and inside it said “Put your dog and your spouse in the trunk of your car for an hour. When you open the trunk, which one is happy to see you?” Yeah, it’s an old chestnut, but it still brought a laugh. Regardless, Saturday brings the 11th annual celebration of man’s best friend: Paws
on the Pavement. It’s an all-day festival to benefit the volunteer-based
Central Arkansas Rescue Effort for Animals (CARE). The day kicks off at 8 a.m. with a 5K run, a 1-mile fun run/walk for both owners and their pets and a volleyball tournament at 10:30 a.m. The day also offers a “doggie fashion show,” microchipping for the overly curious family hound (for only $25 dollars) and, my favorite, miniature therapy horses. Take your pup out on a date. He/she deserves it. (By the way, never put your dog in a car trunk, OK?)
