MILFORD - A Milford woman has made it her mission to walk across all 970 streets in the city, all with her dog by her side.

Joan Smeland and her 9-year-old rescue dog Buddy are walking to raise money for several local charities including Bridges, United Way of Milford and Reggie's Pet Project in Norwalk.

So far, Joan says the duo has walked more than 500 streets, and they have about 400 more to go.
