The 10th Annual Doggy Fun Day is set to happen Sunday, August 30th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm. It takes place, as in previous years, on the playing field above the dog park in Queens Park. Billed as “fun and games for dogs and their people”, this year’s DFD is being put together by the Pacific Volunteer Education and Assistance Team for Animals (VEATA, for short), which is a relatively new group helmed by long time well known animal volunteer, Cheryl Rogers (who some of you may simply know as “the lady who doesn’t wear shoes”).

DFD will feature performances by the Royal City Rockets agility team at 12:30pm and 2:30pm; dog-themed displays, booths, and prize draws; doggy games – egg & spoon racing, 3 legged races, howl-a-long, special dog tricks, doggy look-a-like contest, and the now famous (infamous?) Bobbing for Wieners contest.

Doggy Fun Day is a great way to connect with your canine and other dog owners in the city. For more information, you can email doggfunday.nw@gmail.com
