Photo gallery These dogs had their day
More than 30 registrants participated in the Wisconsin Union’s Hound Hike on Jan. 9. The outreach event, which staggered three registrants every ten minutes, began in front of Memorial Union’s west entrance, where participants and their dogs checked in, collected a free bandana and had a “pupfessional” photo made. From there, participants could choose a route up State Street to Peace Park where Madison’s Central Business Improvement District was sponsoring a giveaway, or around campus. Dogs were required to be leashed at all times and people were required to wear face masks as the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic continues.
