Snickers helps The Fisher House

So happy to be doing the 5K Sausage Run this year at Milwaukee County Stadium. The purpose is to raise money for The Fisher House. The Fisher House offers a home away from home for military families that need a place to stay while their veteran receives medical care at the VA Medical Center.

Last year Snickers cheered me on as I participated in my first triathlon. This year, Snickers is helping me work up to a 5K run. Not bad for a 58 year old. That little three legged terrier is GOOD TO GO when it comes to running! Her man owner tries to hold her back so she doesn't run too far. When I reach the half way point, I'll turn back and head back to her. She is so excited to see me running back to her! She will leap in the air and yip. I love that dog. You would never know she is eight years old. I would recommend a rat terrier to anyone with kids over four (they play hard). Here we are on the lakefront in Port Washington.
