    Wonderful event! So many dogs and their owners showed up. Lulu loved swimming and did not want to leave. Nick, not being a water dog was not entirely thrilled but he did enjoy socializing with a few wonderful dogs and people.
    Nick enjoyed a snack from the Majestic Barkery and Lulu enjoyed hers when she got home. (Too much excitement to eat there).
    Thank you Running Dog Batiks, I love the T-shirt!
    We will definitely go next year, we sure wish we could do it more often.

    What a blast!!! The event is bigger & better every year!! I love Garland Pawsibilities' commitment to the welfare of animals in and around our community.

    It was so much fun getting to let my baby girl (four-legged variety) run around and play with the other dogs and dog people. The music was great and I love the harness that I got for her from the Garland Pawsibilities booth. Can't wait to see pics online. One of the photographers got a wonderful pic of her running around. I just wish we could do this more often

      do you still have vendor space?

    • Garland P.

      We do not have any breed restrictions but all dogs need to be friendly and have a current rabies vaccination. You will be responsible for the dogs that you bring. See you there!

    Tentative, depends on if you've got stuff for me to do

    This is the same day that we would normally have our Oak Park adoption event. Does this mean that we would not have that event as scheduled?

    June 10, 2013

    • Garland P.

      That is correct Jeanne-we will not have a 3rd Saturday Adoption event at Oak Park. We usually make up for it in Sept and Oct with other adoption events.

      June 11, 2013

    • Jeanne M.

      Ok, thanks, just wanted to make sure if I RSVP'd that it didn't mean I'd miss an adoption event.

      June 11, 2013

  • Patricia W.

    Great event - Clue and I never miss it!
