MARCHATHON UPDATE: Due to inclement weather in the middle and western part of the state, the march is still on!  On March 21st, the WEST region will meet at WC Johnson Park in Collierville and on March 28th the MIDDLE region will meet at Two Rivers Park.  Please link the link below for specific information.  This is a fundraiser for Belly Rubs.  We are STILL accepting pledges for marches or meanderings (you be the judge).  Each region will try to raise the most money for our hounds.  Please invite your friends to walk and to give!  It has become a month long basset blast!!! Locations, Dates and Times.
