There are a number of events happening this May that you and your dog can participate in together. As the weather gets nicer, more outdoor family activities that include pets are taking shape and are great ways to bond with your pet, learn more about what’s best for your furry friends, and a way to have fun and meet other pet owners.
On May 2, 2012 in Morristown, NJ there is going to Bark Around The Clock, a 50s themed canine prom. It will run from 7am to 7pm. When bringing your dog dress her/him up in their best prom clothes and get ready for fun. There will be music, dancing, and prom photos.
Your dog will get to play in the pooch playground and splash in the indoor aqua center. Donate your gently used dress clothing to benefit SAGE who operates the NJ Meals on Wheels and Adult Day Care Service. Anyone who donates clothing will receive a $25 gift certificate for lodging, grooming, or daycare at the Morris Animal Inn.
All those who stop by with their furry buddies will also get a strawberry milkshake to drink as they watch their dogs romp and play.
