Country Paws Cares held their first annual charity event on Sunday September 20th from 11am-4pm. The day was packed full of fun at CountryPaws Boarding-London All proceeds went to The Canadian Animal Assistance Team.
I wish I had heard about this event more then a week before the date. This event has run previously for the past 3 years at the Kitchener based kennel. The day was filled with events and local vendors to make a great social day for your dogs. Here is some pics and video of the day!
OK, that was one fun filled day! So glad my Mom brought me along even though it was a bit chilly. My ‘girlfriend’ Raven event came along for the adventure. We started the day by having our photo taken by the talented Erin Woodgate. I event posed nicely in a hat and Raven is in the video in a bonnet. (at :17 sec in the video below).
Then we watched the big dogs do the lure racing which freaked me out a bit, so I had a little visit with the Healing Touch lady afterwards and she helped me calm my nerves. The vendors were all great and I received so many presents like tennis balls from Pet Smart, samples from Pet Valu and treats from Raw for Pets. Mom even bought me a bandanna for my collar and some refills from Da Code a Bags.
Next we got to see the Cruisn’ Paws Agility team compete over a huge course. I can’t wait for Mom to sign me up to learn to compete. Those tunnels looks like so much fun! We took a few minutes to watch Brody and his Mom Melaney perform on stage for the Fanshawe’s Got Talent competition. It was time to move on though before the judges revealed the winners. Mom was busy taking video and pictures of everything so here’s a little montage of the day.
You can see my cameo and my brand new bandanna from Pennies for Paws at 1:30 sec into the video.
I hope they have this event again next year. You can find out more details at: http://fanshawepioneervillage.ca/events/day-dogs

Interesting Dog Fact
Dogs and Rain- the reason dogs hesitate before going out into the rain is not because they are afraid of getting wet.
It ‘s because rain amplifies sounds and their ears are so sensitive it can be too intense for them.
Nice to know that my fur baby isn’t afraid of water. 🙂
