Step right up folks and see the GREATEST SHOW ON

gold trophy and measure to see who has the longest
ears! In-between basset games you can play a game
or two of Bingo under the Big Top plus wander through
tables and tables full of basset t-shirts, hoodies and
GABR basset items. The kids and their parents can
play the old fashioned carnival games like Duck Pond,
Ring Toss, Guessing Games, etc. to win prizes!
Added attractions will be a Chicago artist doing
caricatures and doggycatures, ABC's Slobber Shoppe,
Cindy Huff and Teri Noftsger, our popular animal

Park for locations. The Bash starts an hour earlier at
SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY IS WADDLE DAY!!
Registration starts at 10:00 am. Our route last year
was changed due to road construction in Dwight, so it's
all switched back to our original route!! Don't miss the
colorful Best Costume Contest and Best Decorated
Wagon. Before we waddle, the Star Spangled Banner
and the special Blessing Of The Dogs! Check out the
Waddle Rules on the website and don't forget to take
extra poop bags. The community will line the route
with bowls of water/ice. Even if it's cool weather,
the dogs will get thirsty. On your return to the Park
you will receive your "I Waddled" button! We want
every basset that walks in the Waddle to raise funds
to help the rescues to come.
COME ONE, COME ALL!!!
SEE YOU WADDLE WEEKEND!
Don't wait, REGISTER today!
