The First Annual Dog Jog attracted more than 100 people and their canine companions to the Grange Fairgrounds, and raised almost $6,000 for homeless animals in Centre County through Pets Come First. The predicted rain held off and the sun even poked through the clouds a few times.

Silver sponsor Tom Cali took an early lead in the 5K and cruised to a win in 19:04. His rescue greyhound was there, but didn’t race with him. Christine Rodgers, also without a four-legged partner, was the first female in 22:38. Both received a trophy with a runner and a dog on it.

Adam Wetzel, running with his rescue Doberman Roxy, was second overall and the first runner with a dog in 20:53. Kristina Harris, running with Parker, was the first female finisher with a dog. All dog winners received a dog tag for their collars and goody bags.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes completed the 5K run and 1.5-mile jog/walk. The first small dog in the 5K was Catherine Meyers’ pint-size Tigger, who Catherine said is an avid hiker and has run up to 8 miles. Kate Ryan completed the 1.5-miler with her three-legged dog Tootsie.

After the race, runners and walkers relaxed with their dogs, ate lunch, and browsed the rescue fair. Joe Bollinger, who ran with his dog Cinnamon, said it was the first race where his kids weren’t ready to leave as soon as he crossed the finish line.

The race starts. A few dogs are trying to figure out the concept of "race".
