Four-Legged Bridge Walkers

This Saturday I made two new friends, Murray and Zane Grey. They are four-legged bridge walkers on the historical Old Seven Mile Bridge.  According to Zane Grey’s owner, Lynn, her big beautiful a goldendoodle, which was a rescue dog, has been walking the Old Seven since he was ten weeks old.  Lynn is also a volunteer on the team for greenways and trails to keep clean this part of the Overseas Heritage Trail.

Murray, a friendly healthy looking mastiff mix is from Safe harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys (S.H.A.R.K) and is available for adoption along with several other dogs at cats at their facility at 10550 Aviation Blvd.  According to executive director, Katie, the animal rescue facility brings dogs for a bridge walk at least once a week, usually, Saturdays, and entices a passerby to volunteer to walk a dog or two.  If anyone is interested, this wonderful no-kill facility needs volunteers to walk dogs at their facility (305-743-4800.)

In addition, many other local residents walk their dogs on the Old Seven Bridge, a wonderful place to experience nature and interact with other two-legged and four-legged bridge-walkers.
