    My children and I were there with our Golden ... we arrived around Noonish and didn't stay too long as it was windy, cold, and damp. But we did enjoy visiting all the vendor booths and meeting other doggies!

    Buster and I had a great time. There was contests, a practice show routine that you could go through, tons of vendors, raffle and silent auction and live music. Great day! Buster is now crashed out on the couch. Tons of dogs there today
