This is a blog post full of photos. I was in Dogathon last week with some photog. Thanks Robin for lending me his EM5 and 25mm.
I was there last year too, but wasn't so into photog, just enjoy myself. Not very much difference from last year, we have
silly puppy etc.
It's not merely a gathering for dog owners, the organised has a lot activity schedule,
stall, and competition.
20% of time was spent on a very special booth. It's call a "Second Chance Rescue". They specialized in the rescue and placement of abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals.
What makes me more surprise is that they have Muslim volunteers.
If it isn't because of this girl that bring out the cute puppy and let me hold them in my arms, I wouldn't ask more about the puppy origin and knows about Paws Mission and Second Chance.
Another sibling carried by another Muslim girl. Note that they wear tudung/hijab but they do not reject having interaction whith dogs, which is very rarely these days. Dog v.s Muslim a very sensitive issue, the debate whether dog are prohibited or not is a never ending discussion. To protect their identity, I do not put their face here, but I secretly hope that one day every animal will be treated w/o prejudice.
Cheers for our most loyal friend! Hope you were here with us. If you don't wanna miss the opportunity to join them next year, then please Like https://www.facebook.com/dogathontm to follow their updates.
