Since the volunteers come in all through the day, they use a board to keep track of who has been walked. Even though there are lots of volunteers, not every dog may get walked every day. They do have a play day for the dogs once a week. They alternate weeks for large and small dogs. Of course this will only work for the dogs that are social.
I still haven't worked out taking pictures of the dogs I walk. You would soon be bored with seeing all the doggie pictures anyway, at least most of you.

Can you see the little blue flower? She looked like she was in Hawaii!
