Hi. I am in Texas, not Iowa but I know there is a walking club in your area if you are interested in participating in local events on a regular basis. I do similar walks every weekend. We are not "fund raising" clubs, we are for fun, fitness and fellowship. Our clubs are family oriented and most events are baby stroller, and pet friendly. Our object is to keep a record book and collect a stamp for each event that we do. I've done over a 1000 of the 10K events in Texas and in 46 other states. Visit my blogs and see my recent adventures. Here is the information on our local club:
Club Name: Greater Des Moines Volkssport Assn. Address: PO Box 110 City: Des Moines State: IA Zip: 50301-0110 Contact: Deb Gaskins Phone: (515) 238-2486 Website: www.ava.org/clubs/GreaterDesMoinesVolksspo rtAssn Email: Debra.S.Gaskins@usps.gov
In 2011 there is going to be a walking convention in Iowa. here is the link for information: http://www.ava.org/clubs/ava2011conventi on/index.asp

HOW FUNNY...MY DAUGHTER NAMED HER DOG BAILEY! (NOT A CAV). ABBY IS A BIT OF A DIVA. SHE LIKES TO WAIT AT THE TOP OR BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS AND BE COAXED TO FOLLOW US. SHE WANTS TO HAVE HER IMPORTANCE DEMONSTRATED! WHEN MY DAUGHTERS DOGS COME OVER, SHE TURNS HER BACK ON THEM! BUT SHE AND OUR BRITTANY, OZZIE HAVE GOTTEN ALONG PERFECTLY FROM THE GET GO, SO WE'RE LUCKY! 2450 days ago
