Fun Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive


This is me about an hour ago.  I got up, walked around for a while, sat down, got up again and hit the chair.  There is NOTHING TO DO!  I am bored.  I am BORED!  I am sooooo BORED!!!

Niqqi is bored!

There two words that seem to be in everyone’s mouth lately: “The Economy.”  And everything revolves around that.  Like yesterday…all I wanted to do was go for a walk around the block, but my parents were glued to the tv and the tv was telling them all the things they were not going to be able to do…at least for a while.  Hello tv!  Where are you getting all of this information?  Okay, they’re might be things that people may need to put off doing—like a trip around the world, but how about all the fun things we can do that don’t cost a lot of money or are free?  Doing fun things makes us feel better, and if we feel better, somehow things get better.

So I went online and found these fun events dogs and people can do TODAY:

White River Humane Society’s Mutt Strut, Thornton Park Pavilion, Bedford, IN

Bangor Human Society’s PAWS on PARADE, United Technologies Center, Bangor, ME

Pasadena Humane Society’s 10th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk, Brookside Park, Pasadena, CA – On their site you can watch a fun video of last year’s event


Hawaiian Humane Society’s PETWALK, Ala Moana Beach Park, Honolulu, HI

Aloha from Hawaii

Hudson Valley Humane Society’s Doggie Day in the Park, Kennedy-Dells Park, New City, NY (October 19th)

Humane Society of Westmoreland County’s Whisker Walk, Twin Lakes Park, Greensburg, PA (October 26th)

Humane Society of Harford County’s Walk & Wag-a-thon, Harford County Equestrian Center, Fallston, MD (November 8th)

So I sat my parents down and had a long conversation with them.  They agreed with everything I said.  And you know what we’re doing today?  We’re going for a Halloween House Walk.  We’re going to see how people have decorated their houses.  And you know what?  It doesn’t cost anything! 

I’d better get ready and fluff myself up for a fun day ahead!
