OK. It was cold. But that didn't deter the Wagging Walkers from bringing their dogs for a walk and wag.
The third Saturday of every month, Ijams' veterinarian Dr. Louise Conrad leads a dog walk at the nature center, as she walks her own canine companion. (That's her on the far left with Gandalf.) Along the way Dr. Louise reviews good doggy etiquette at the park and helps owners understand the special safety concerns for dogs in nature.
It's also a good time to ask a trained vet any dog (or cat or bird) related question. The fee for this program is $5 for non-members and free for members. The next Wagging Walk is scheduled for February 15. Please call (865) 577-4717, ext. 110 to register.
