If you are going to be in or around Austin, Texas on Saturday April 18, 2009, you can see Scooby Doo, Shaggy, and Daphne live. They are going to be grand marshals leading the parade for the Mighty Texas Dog Walk. The Mystery Machine is also supposed to be at the event. Be sure and take your camera to get your picture with Scooby and the gang, as there are supposed to be photo opportunities.
The goal of the event is to break the world record for most dogs walked at one time. The current record is 10,272 held by Great Britian. However, the Austin event is hoping to drawing in excess of 10,500 pooches. The walk begins at 9 a.m. at the Congress Avenue Bridge. If you can make it, take your dog to insure that walk breaks the record.
What makes this event truly worthwhile is that it benefits Texas Hearing and Service Dogs which provides service animals to people with disabilities. For more details and information about the event check out this report from the News 8 Austin.
