Lincoln Avenue between Hawley and North Sprague Avenues.

For a small donation of $5, (the proceeds of which will be

contributed to Spencer and Friends and the Avalon Veterinary

Hospital for their good works), you will receive a Summer

Solstice Spectacular custom-printed doggy kerchief, a treat bag

and the right to strut your stuff along Lincoln Avenue with

your owners in tow.  You will follow a designated path (so

your owners won't get you lost).

Remember to mind your manners with your fellow pooches, be

sure to have your owners keep you safely on your leash, and be

absolutely sure that you remind your owners to clean up after

you, just in case you get too excited during the walk and have a

doggy disaster!!!

There will be a special prize for the best-dressed doggy and also

the most talented canine.
