Wasatch Waddle 2009

Calling all basset-loving leprechauns! The 6th annual Wasatch Waddle is coming! Join Utah Friends of Basset Hounds on March 14, 2009 to waddle in the St. Patrick's Day parade!

What is a waddle?

A waddle is a fundraiser similar to a walk-a-thon. You raise money in the form of pledges per city block that your hound completes in the Waddle. (Don't worry if your hound is older or not able to keep up on foot...er, paw...because we provide the Pooped Pup Pick-up Truck just for you!)

Waddle Attire

UFBH will provide you derby hats and bandanas for your hounds (we ask that the bandana be worn over their collar or tied on the leash so that it is visible). We ask that at least one person in your party wears the 2009 Waddle t-shirt because the more people in our Waddle t-shirts the more attention UFBH will get! Beyond that, wear something in keeping with a St. Patrick's Day theme; shamrocks, derbies and of course, lots of green!

Breakfast with Bassets

Come early and join us for a light continental-style breakfast! UFBH will provide free beverages and food to registered participants.

Waddle Checklist

Things to consider:

  1. PLEASE bring only hounds that can handle socializing with other dogs, children and parade participants—as well as, noise, action, crowds and horses.
  2. Please limit yourself to one hound per person, per leash. Two hounds on a leash with a coupler will be acceptable. No more than two people walking with one dog—too many people block the view of the hounds.
  3. Any hound without current rabies certification will NOT be able to participate. NO EXCEPTIONS!
  4. Come prepared for cold or wet weather. March is unpredictable in Utah. We waddle rain or shine!

Things to bring:

  • Proof of current Rabies vaccination (REQUIRED)
  • Collar and leash (no flexi-leads)
  • Waddle Disclaimer (REQUIRED)
  • Water and/or food dish
  • Umbrella/rain gear
  • Lawn chair
