13th Annual Doggy Fun Days Coming Up!

The 13th annual DOGGY FUN DAY is coming up on Sunday, August 26 in Queens Park from noon to 3 pm in the south field above the off-leash dog park—fun and games for dogs and their people. The event goes on rain or shine. Who doesn’t just love a wet dog! (Fortunately there has been only one rainy day in the history of the event.)

A howling good time at Doggy Fun Days

Doggy Fun Day features doggy–human interactive games, such as a 7-legged race (or however many legs are involved with two people and their dog) and the egg and spoon race (which features one person, one spoon, an egg, and as many dogs as you can handle dragging you across the field). And of course what event would be complete without a doggy look-alike contest—dress up yourself and your dog and see if you win a prize.

Of course, the ever-popular (four paws up) “Bobbing for Wieners” contest is a perennial favourite. Come and see if your dog can unseat the current champ. (And yes, there is both a large dog and a small dog contest, so the Beverly Hills Chihuahua doesn’t have to compete against a Hooch-like mastiff.)

It's my turn! No, it's my turn!

Or just come and hang out and visit the vendor displays to see what is new and happening in all things dog, while the dogs do their own version of “meet and greet” (and we all know how that goes).

Teaching Your Person to Give You A Treat

Doggy Fun Day is a fundraiser for VEATA, the Volunteer Education and Assistance Team for Animals, a New Westminster-based registered charity dedicated to bettering the lives of animals through educating people on proper pet care, providing financial and fostering assistance, and raising awareness on animal-related issues.
