On Sunday 18 May, DHA’s favourite friend Rex D. Dog joined a crowd of more than 10,000 animal lovers and their furry friends at the Million Paws Walk in Canberra.

The Walk is an important event for Rex as it gives him the chance to help raise funds for the RSPCA and the great work they do. Rex also enjoyed catching up with the many Defence family dogs in attendance.  

Rex proved to be quite the popular pooch, often finding himself surrounded by a sea of frenzied fans and their pups, who were lined up to pose for photographs.

See what Rex got up to at the Million Paws Walk by checking out the photo gallery. While you’re there, don’t forget to order a free copy of Rex’s new Sticking Together storybook and activity pack.
