    When I went to pick up Titan's registration today the lady at the desk was so happy to see the Danes coming again. She told me they have trained a Dane as a service dog. She knew all about our group.

    Is the walk still on or cancled on account of rain?

    March 23, 2013

    • Tiffany T.

      The website says it's on-rain or shine.

    At a family funeral in FL. Posted a week ago I had to go and would miss this. Y'all have a Great Dane time! The fee I paid already will just be a donation.

    I may have an extra walker. I will know for sure tomorrow. Will the registration fee be the same?

    March 21, 2013

    • Chantell

      If you paid for the second dog I can supply the walker for you. My friend said he will do it. And I'm registering tonight last minute.

      March 21, 2013

    • Lauren

      that's great. see GT's comment above. I guess I CAN walk both, but if your friend would still like to walk a dog, he's more than welcome to borrow one of mine! i'll be at the statue w/everyone else - prolly around 9ish? thanks!

      March 22, 2013

    You can walk to dogs but the only "count" one when you walk multiple dogs. Nikki and I both walked with two of our Danes last year. I know Nikki is walking with two of her Danes again this year also. I would be walking with two also but Zeus will be watching this year from above.

    March 21, 2013

    • Lauren

      oh ok, that works for me!

      March 22, 2013

  • Lauren

    will anybody have extra walkers? I registered 2 dogs w/o knowing that there's a 1 dog/person rule. I'd like both dogs to walk, but that's not allowed. If anybody'd be willing to walk my other dog (lab mix, a little slow these days due to acl issues) i'd really appreciate it. he's really good on a leash, too! (you'll prob have to walk by me, b/c my dane is like velcro to our other!) Thanks!!

    Duncan will be there!!!!

    Got my registration completed just waiting to pick up my packet later this week.

    When you get your packet it will give parking options. Last year I parked in the TxDot parking lot where there was plenty of parking available at 8a.m. We did have a little ways to walk but well worth it.

    March 17, 2013

    • Dee K.

      I parked at Hoosters last year, we got there around 8 and had no problems finding a spot!

      March 17, 2013

    Were planning on it. :)

    Posted in wrong place - but - oh well.

    March 17, 2013

  • Gary H.

    The key is to allow enough time to find a place to park and then walk to where we are meeting. This is a HUGE event so plan on doing some walking. We were kind of spread out last year because we didn't all get together.

      Can't make it! Death in family. Heading to FL where my uncle lived. Y'all have a wonderful time! Sure need some dog treats! :(

      March 17, 2013

  • Catherine Vessey (.

    Picked my packet up at Healthy Pet. Texas Hearing and service dogs are excited to see how many Danes will be coming for the Mighty Texas Dog Walk !!!

    March 16, 2013

  • Lauren

    what time will we be meeting at the statue?

    March 1, 2013

  • Gary H.

    For those who did not do this event last year, for the MASSIVE amount of dog treats you haul home, it's well worth the time. They pass out entire cases of treats --- the amount is a little overwhelming.
