THIS ONE’S FOR THE DOGS
As Rebecca recently mentioned, this Sunday brings the first annual “Dog Day Afternoon” to the furry residents of Yaletown and their owners.
Between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., the Roundhouse Community Centre and Alpha Dog Training Co. are presenting fun times for Fido and Fifi at Cooper’s Park at 1020 Marinaside (underneath the Cambie Bridge). A number of local businesses will be on-hand with information booths, dog demonstrations, games, free prizes and even caricature portraits!

I’m personally thrilled about yet another dog-friendly event in Vancouver! Not only is it nice to know that all family members are welcome, but it’s a fantastic opportunity for all dogs to socialize with each other – it’s a crucial part of their emotional well-being.

Some of the exhibitors and business on hand include Dog Safe Canine First Aid, Art by Jennifer Ettinger, Rex in the City (City of Vancouver), City of Vancouver Emergency Social Services, Wags K-9 Teeth Cleaning, The Rex Hotel and Spa, Alpha Dog Training Company, Caricature Artist Mei Yu (sponsored by CIBC Yaletown), Happy Dog Hydrobath Company and the Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic – Blood Services.
Here’s hoping these two will join Jordy and I… and here’s hoping to see you out in the sunshine too! Don’t forget the sunscreen!
