Pets, like children, require proper care and attention to ensure they don't get bored and bite the mailman. Dote upon furry ankle biters with today's Groupon to the Ghost Runners 5K Dog Run, scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. on October 30. Choose from the following options:

Runners and their four-legged companions trek through 5 kilometers of park path during the Ghost Runners 5K Dog Run, one of the only pet-friendly timed running events in Oklahoma. Entrants and their leashed hounds trot through Lake Hefner's Stars and Stripes Park, keeping hearts pumping as they pass scenery as tranquil as a pet rock's birthday party. Pup-centric booths open at noon, and the event features a slew of dog-friendly activities and events throughout the day, all orchestrated by volunteers who are best friends with man's best friend.
Pooch-and-pal activities go on until 5 p.m., at which point crowds can head home to let four-legged friends resume their refrigerator vigil. All money raised goes to the members of Heartland Weimaraner Rescue, who will use the funds for medical care and canine fostering programs.
