Dogs of all shapes and sizes will be at the State Capitol Sunday September 12th for the Shaggy Shuffle! Y'all come join the festivities.  There'll be a lot more than just sniffin' butts and peeing on trees, there's food and fun for everyone!

The Shaggy Shuffle is a MAJOR fundraiser for regional animal shelter.

The Central Dakota Humane Society counts on community contributions to keep up their incredible mission that continues north of Mandan.

It's been my great pleasure to play a part in setting up the Shaggy Shuffle in the past.  It was my job to ride in the back of a pickup bed filled with route signs.  Jump out, set up sign, jump back in and go to the next sign drop on the route.  I'm not doing that anymore which is cool by me- in the words of Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon, "I'm getting too old for this Shih Tzu".

But no dog or dog walkers are too young or too old to come join the Shuffle.

You can talk the long haul or simply putz around the Capitol grounds.  I't just fun to get together on a Sunday and raise money for all the critters at the shelter.  Walkers who register for just $35 will get your choice of t-shirt. Additional raised or donated will get you in the running for valuable prizes!
