Now that summer has arrived, winter weight gain is a bit more obvious to some of us, given our warmer weather attire. And we may not be the only ones who have put on a few extra pounds  — our furry friends have likely over-indulged right alongside us. 

But do not fear because Image Fitness & Yoga for Women, located at F-2255 Ness Ave., has your back (and love handles...).

This wonderful business has organized a Pet and Pal Boot Camp Fundraiser for Sept. 7 from 1 to 3:30 p,m, with all proceeds to go to our local Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter, at 3062 Portage Ave.

While the precise location of the event is still pending there will be areas set up for small circuits for you and your dogs, such as hurdles, tires, pylons, and tunnels. And while some contestants are waiting their turns, there will be a nice two-kilometre walk to keep you both warmed up.

Any age can compete (that means both human and dog) and there will also be a free lunch for all who compete. The goal is to complete the course in the fastest time.

Registration is $15, which is cheaper than a two-topping pizza at most places. So take the time to bond with your four-legged family member and have some fun working off that winter weight.

So, grab your runners and your pooch and contact Image Fitness for Women at 204-889-3009 or check out their website at imagefitnesscentre.com and be prepared for you and Fido to tear up the competition.

P. S. Cats are too smart to get involved in this type of thing.
