The alarm rang at 4:00 am, we have to get up immediately to prepare Bruno, my yellow labrador retriever, for the 3 km. fun run at Peoples Park (Davao) for the 4th National Davao Dog Summit. This was Bruno's 4th fun run. Since events like these were only held in Davao City twice a year, we see to it that we are able to join, so that Bruno can socialize with other dogs and us also will be able to interact with other dog owners and exchange ideas on how to better care our loyal friends.
It was still dark when we arrived at Peoples Park and there were only few participants around yet. Bruno just couldn't hide his excitement just seeing that there were other dogs around. After a while people arrived with there dogs and the scene was just overwhelming, seeing different breeds of dogs from large to the smallest. In the photo above and below was just some of it.
The run started at exactly 6:00 am, the small breed ran the 1.5 km while the large breed where Bruno belongs did the 3 km run. It was Dave who ran with Bruno and they finished the race 4th place. Though there were no big prizes like in other events, this was held just to have fun and as I've said to socialize.
After the run, Bruno and his friends Pumpkin and Gabby were so tired that they just lay down on floor and waited for us to go home. As the saying goes "A tired dog is a happy dog".
