Gearing Up For National Walk Your Dog Week

by Houndstooth on

In case you didn’t know, tomorrow marks the beginning of National Walk Your Dog Week, which officially runs from October 1-7 every year.  My guess is that a lot of people reading this already walk their dogs on a regular or semi regular basis, but I think it’s still something worth celebrating and talking about.
