WHAT'S EVERYONE BARKING ABOUT?

"We had a great time at the event this year.  Everything is well organized and I think there was a nice turn-out.  Thank you. We posted the photo's of nearly 100 dogs from the event on our website!

Thanks again, and we look forward to next years Dog Day!"      

-- Michelle & Rick

 

"Hi guys! What a day!  Very busy and crowds of people with every kind of dog!  I think the nice weather and all the advertising the Kennel club did really helped. I need to thank my Dog Days helpers! Barb, Russ, and Eric! Ann and Katie! Kris and Christy and Gail (and Carrie too) We had an almost constant line of people who wanted to try the obstacle course and the demo dogs hardly got to take a turn!  We raised over $130 to donate to C-Snip.

Thanks again!"    --- Ellen
