Events For June 2012

There are a lot of family fun pet events in June for you to attend. If your dog is a model, clown, or athlete, why not show her off? Some events have contests that you and your dog can enter and others are marathons or walk-a-thons that help your local shelter. There are also events where you can check out the latest and greatest new pet products, food, and learn more about animals welfare, you might even find a new friend to bring home if the event has an adoption booth.

If I could go to this event, I would. It would be hysterical. Imagine a bunch of dachshunds running down a track to the finish line with their long bodies, short legs, and unique little gallop. It would be so fun. The event benefits DREAM Dachshund Rescue, a non-profit rescue in Atlanta. The weekend event will have races, costume contests, nose contests, and an obstacle course. You can register your own little dachshund to run a course. All races are ruled and sanctioned by the National Dachshund Circuit Races.

  1. Hi Kathy!
    Could you please remind people as much in advance as you can, about “Take Your Dog To Work Day?!”
    It’s a great way to raise awareness of the positive effects Dogs have on human beings, and if your Dog was a rescue, go in prepared with web links or phone numbers to pass out to anyone in the office who thinks your Fur Friend is ‘All That!’
