I'm DeAnne and I'm with Alan, a small wire-haired terrier dachshund mix. So cute!
I live in Maryland Heights. I joined WCDW when it started. Alan is our second dog. The dog we had previously, Angel, passed away a week ago. She was over 15 years old and we had a wonderful life together with many happy West County Dog Walker hikes.
Alan was our daughter's dog but he was too feisty for her to handle and she seldom found the time to walk him. Then she thought of her dear old mom. (How sweet!) Kathy K, a WCDW member, was taking a trip out west and was able to pick Alan up at his home in Albuquerque and bring him to us.
My husband and I are Volksmarchers, and we regularly go on 10K (6.2 miles) walks. Alan can't always join us, but he has walked a few 10k's. He's a good little walker.
I like Creve Coeur Park a lot. I live nearby which makes it very easy.
Alan, little brother to the auspicious Angel, is now Dog #1 but he's always known that. What an attitude for such a little guy! His weight varies from 15 to 20 lbs, and I should be walking him more. I'm hoping to join WCDW more frequently.
At last...a Meetup for dogs and their people! All are welcome!
