Austin Pets Alive! at Town Lake has partnered with Team Spiridon, a local running group, to create maybe the most brilliant joint venture in the history of "Arfstin." Overstatement? You decide. It's a mutually beneficial situation, where runners take shelter dogs for jogs around Lady Bird Lake. The times are flexible, and the dogs are just happy to get out. It's the perfect solution for apartment dwellers that can't have dogs, and athletic dogs who don't have homes yet. There's a onetime training session, and then you're off and running.
