Cinnamon's Volksmarch Log (Since I don't have an IVV Record Book!)

Here I am learning to follow the pink arrows.
I was asked which walks I have done and whether or not I am recording IVV Credit. Well, to tell you the truth, I understood that the AVA didn't allow dogs to get credit for their walks. But I do keep track... in my little coonie brain.

I am getting rather proud of myself. At first I didn't think I could walk more than a few blocks. Sometimes I'd make it around the dog park twice, but that was about it. You know, I am over five years old!

But recently I have been going on 10K volksmarches and I am doing just fine. In fact, today, I walked and hiked a 10K and when I got back to the motel room I took a nap. When I woke up I wanted to go walking SOME MORE! So we went down the ocean trail. I did great! I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF NOW.

So, for the lack of record books, here is what I have accomplished:

10K Vancouver Land Bridge Walk - Vancouver, WA - Vancouver Volkssporters - Website
10K Columbia River Walk - Columbia River Volkssport Club - Website
10K Sherwood - Soup Walk - Sherwood Merrywalkers - Website
10K WSU - Vancouver Cougar Views Walk - All Weather Walkers - Website
10K Halloween Walk in Yachats - Yachats Coastal Gems - Website

You know what? That is FIVE walks and 50 Kilometers. WOW!

While I don't get IVV credit, I guess it is fair because I don't pay a fee to the club either. Now if they accepted registrations for dogs, these clubs would have earned $3 per walk for my efforts. Hmmm. That's something to think about, Volkssport Clubs!


  1. FVA (FL Volkssport Association) printed out some books they made about 10 years ago and no, you couldn't get credit but you could hand enter the info from above. WHEN I get home (in Mexico right now), I'll look and see if I can find one. I THINK I may have one from back then.

  2. Cinnamon says: "That would be the next best thing to authentic IVV books!"


Thanks for your comment. Love, Cinnamon
