22nd annual Dog Days of Summer a success
It might have been raining but that didn’t stop all the enthusiastic canines and their people from having a great time at the 22nd annual Dog Days of Summer.
The sun eventually came out and islanders got to show off their doggy talents and costumes for a worthy cause as this event supports the BC Guide Dogs services.
Handcrafted medals shaped like dog bones were handed out for many different categories such as biggest dog and littlest dog, best dressed and the longest and shortest tails.
Otis Holland was crowned Dog of the Year and will be riding in the Bowfest parade as an honorary guest.
A demonstration from the dog trainer at the Bowen Island Dog Ranch showed off two well-behaved rescue dogs.
The Coast Animal Welfare & Education Society (CAWES) brought forward two adult wire-haired dachshunds that were rescued from the U.S. and are currently looking for a good home. These dogs are very well behaved and must be placed together. Please remember that seniors receive 50 per cent off any adoptions.
For inquires about adopting through CAWES, call Angie McCulloch at 604-947-9737.
