Puppy Up! Mini Walk in New London, CT

It's beginning! Puppy Up! Walks are starting to catch on.

Coming up this Sunday, April 25, there will be a Puppy Up! Mini Walk, sponsored by the City of New London and Spirit Gallery in New London, CT.

Luke will bring 2 Dogs 2000 Miles and its message to New London with a dog mini-walk along the waterfront, canine freestyle dancing and a meet and greet at Spirit Gallery. The walk and corresponding events are free and open to the public. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome.

The 2 Dogs 2000 Miles Puppy Up! mini-walk will span from City Pier Park, continue down the waterfront and end at the south end of Waterfront Park. Participating parties and their canine companions will meet at 1:00 P.M. at City Pier Park. Luke and his dogs will start the walk at 1:15 P.M.

The walk will conclude with a performance from the Connecticut-based canine musical freestyle group Top Hat & Tails Canine Dance Troupe. The performance will include traditional obedience tricks and choreographed dance set to music. Top Hat & Tails will perform from 1:30 to 2:30 P.M. at Waterfront Park.

To help celebrate the occasion, Spirit Gallery – New London’s tattoo studio and art gallery hybrid – will hold a 2 Dogs 2000 Miles meet and greet from 1:45 to 3 P.M. Attendees will get a chance to personally meet Luke and his two Great Pyrenees, Hudson and Murphy. Refreshments will be served. Spirit Gallery is located at 207 Bank St., New London, Conn.

After his stop in New London, Luke will continue on his journey to Boston, bringing his 2 Dog 2000 Miles travels to an end on June 18.
