Ranger Lacey Pet Walk a success

PEOPLE and their pooches pounded the pavement for a cause at the annual Ranger Lacey Pet Walk at the weekend.

Retired Fraser Coast council canine mascot Ranger Jay made his final public appearance at the event which is aimed at raising money for Guide Dogs Queensland.

Hundreds of Fraser Coast pet lovers headed to Dayman Park yesterday to get in on the action.

Many also took the chance to get their pets microchipped.

A free sausage sizzle was on offer for all who made the sandy 5km trek from the park along the beach to the Margaret Street groyne and back again.

Family entertainment included balloon making, face painting, rides and a jumping castle.

The crowd was also treated to lessons in dog obedience training and a demonstration involving a padded up Andy Gaze from the council and a police dog.
