Previously: On March 4th 2012, Camana Bay was the venue for an opportunity for dog lovers to show off their pets or borrow one from the Humane Society to participate in the 3rd Annual K9 5K DOG JOG presented by C.A.R.E. (Cayman Animal Rescue Enthusiasts). Equally, the opportunity was provided for pets to demonstrate how well they had trained their owners.

There were dogs of all sizes-small enough to carry in a large purse and some big enough to ride on. Long-haired, short-haired, shaggy, shaven – all made an appearance. There were almost as many dogs as people and they almost made as much noise.

Unaccompanied by a Rhodesian Ridgeback, Marius Acker strode a to a second weekend distance victory at Caymana Bay in a time of 18:58. Ray Welds made the double loop tour in 19:48, while Mark Tilly clocked in third among the males and fourth overall at 20:44. Claire Critchley opted not to be encumbered by a Canadian husky, although she did jog with a dog after her triumph in the ladies division, as she posted a time of twenty minutes flat.Tracey Walker enjoyed another good outing with a 22:24 mark, and newcomer Jacqueline Davis placed third at 23:22.

First dog to finish the course accompanied by a human was the sprightly Bella, who pulled Greg Meaker to 7th position overall with a time of 22:39. Berty, borrowed from the Humane Society, had Emily Davies on the other end of the leash, and the pair clocked 25:11 for 18th position.
