Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Biggest Looser - Pet Edition

Its already underway, but its not too late to join!

Our Ligonier Y and the Loyalhanna Veterinary Clinic have a twist on the Biggest Looser competition. Here is what's found on the Ligonier Y home page.

It's a twist!
Join our Biggest Loser - Pet Edition Competition! Please note, you do NOT need to have a pet. You do NOT have to lose weight. You can still participate!

Dr. Croft informed us that
"Our first walk in Ligonier (in the rain) we had 18 hardy walkers and their faithful dogs."For 6 weeks starting Sat Mar 5 thru April 9 at 1 pm there will be Dog Walks to promote people and their dogs to get out and walk. Anyone can sign up at the Y for a one time fee of $5. If they want to enter the Biggest Looser part of the walk, one could win a prize for the greatest % BW lost, combined pet and owner.The Clinic will also offer a weekly door prize and free consultation on their pets weight if this is an issue. Dr. Croft, Dr Helman or Dr Springer will be at each walk to answer questions.

tly it is to have FUN with your pet.
