Dog Day Afternoon! [Community Event]

  • Apr 27, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

NOTE: This community event is organized and sponsored by the Columbia Association (CA) and not by Columbia Dogs on the Go. It is open to the general public. It is not a "Meetup," but is posted here to inform our members and start a discussion. Your RSVP here is to let other members know you are planning to attend. It is not a registration for the event.


Dog Day Afternoon is Columbia's biggest dog event of the year! This FREE event promises a dog-gone good time for dogs and humans alike, so register now on the CA's EventBrite page.

The CA once again has lots planned--music, raffles, contests, off-leash play and treats. At last year's Dog Day Afternoon, dog lovers enjoyed a Tail-Wagging Contest, Most Fashionable & Best Costume Show, Bone-Eating Contest, Best Kisser Contest, Columbia’s Cutest Canine Contest, and more. Vendors included local businesses and organizations that focus on the health, happiness and well-being of our beloved, furry friends.

For more information, call Erin McPhail at the CA, [masked], or email [masked].

    Could not have had a more beautiful day! Had a great time. Nice to see so many from this group there. Some even asked what this groups was about. Hopefully we'll have some more members. Mary ... great idea putting those cards in the goodie bags!

    It was well planned and well attended. I enjoyed seeing all the dogs and having Jade walk among them. It was fun to greet people who were CDOG members whose dogs were sporting blue. We stayed almost 2 hours which was all that Jade could take.

    We loved every minute of it! Jackson made some friends and came home completely exhausted (in a good way). He is currently enjoying his goodie bag treats from the vendors, and he cannot be happier. We were happy to make friends, but unfortunately didn't catch owner's names. Please let us know if you met Jackson today!

    A great big thank you and congratulations to the Columbia Association for this terrific event!! So many fun things and it was wonderful to see all the dogs having a great time. And can you beat that perfect weather? Wish we could do this every week!

      Not surprised Primrose won an eating contest of any sort--after hearing the history of things she eats!! Congrats to her!

      Awesome! I had a feeling I'd seen some in Michael's before!

    While you’re wandering around enjoying the activities, see if you can spot Jenny carrying a big yellow CDOG bag. Say hello to her and Scooby and Nibbler and she’ll give you one of our cute CDOG buttons. You can wear it at events like this to identify yourself as a member.

    Hi

    India and myself are going to event on saturday. I'm a bit concerned about parking. Where do I park? Signs around?

    1 · April 25, 2013

    • Mary L.

      The event takes place near a neighborhood park and pool. I don't recall any issues with parking last year, but I would recommend that you direct questions or concerns to the Columbia Association, who is sponsoring the event. CDOG is not organizing this, so I would not want to give any incorrect information. You can call Erin McPhail at the CA,[masked], or email [masked].

    This is my first time going to this event and I am not familiar with this park. The map isn't helpful. Can someone give me an idea of where the park is?

      I think I fixed the map on the Meetup site too. Should be better.

      April 23, 2013

    Jenny suggested on our Facebook page that we identify ourselves as CDOG-ers by having our dogs wear a bandana of the same color. So, between now and Saturday, let's see if we can all come up with a BLUE bandana or scarf--or a BLUE bow on our dog's collar--to wear as a sort of badge. (Nothing fancy, of course--and totally optional.) Then we will put shyness aside and say hello to the other BLUES that we meet as we're enjoying all the fun things at Dog Day.
