Tour de Lab Bike Marathon Ignites Local Dog Lovers and Puns
Thursday, September 03, 2015
And don’t forget the goodies! The event is hosted by Labrador Brewing Company and offers free craft beer (pint glass included) as well as an all you can eat hot “dog” bar at the finish line.
And don’t forget: the whole thing is for charity! In support of the DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital, the Tour de Lab is also a costume party: at each stop, you can add on an additional piece of doggy attire (e.g. an ear or whiskers)! You can also bring a stuffed dog to display in a bike basket or your child can hold on to it.
Don’t let your weekend go to the dogs. Flex your wheels and register for the event here.

Pit bull breeds accounted for 78 percent of fatal dog attacks last year. GoLocalPDX outlines five things to know about surviving pit bull attacks recommended by Multnomah County Animal Control.
2) Protect Yourself
Attempt to place anything you have, such as a jacket or backpack, between yourself and the attacking dog. Keep your arms and hands near your body, making it harder for the animal to reach out and bite you. Also, turn your hands into fists to protect your fingers. If you can, curl up in the fetal position.
3) Choke The Dog
If a dog cannot breathe or is choking, it will probably stop biting you. If a dog is attacking you, try to ram either an object or your hand down its throat as far as you can to make it gag. Also, try to put pressure against the animal’s throat and windpipe.
5) Report The Incident
Even if you receive no serious injuries, it is best to let the authorities know about a dangerous or menacing dog. It may only injure someone worse in the future. Contact animal control services, such as Multnomah County Animal Control.
