    My husband and I brought a dog from East Lake Pet Orphange to the event. While we did not find her a new home, it was so much fun to watch her having fun. Scarlett had a great day away from the shelter.

    You all did a great job with the event! Well done. I will definitely come back next year. One thing I really appreciated is that the PA system was not too loud. At many of the events I attend with my own dogs, the music and announcements are so loud that it really rattles their nerves.

    Thanks to all of you for providing a fun affordable outing for us. As a volunteer with another organization, I can truly appreciate how much work goes into an event like that.

    Wow..what a great day! All went smoothly with crazy dog fun and lots smiles! Special thanks to all the volunteers - without you this event would NOT have been held. Thanks also to the Garland Parks Department for letting us do the event. It was great to have Petsmart and the other doggy vendors at the event as well..they donated raffle items!

    This time I volunteered and loved it. Parking was a little bit of an issue but thought having it at the same time as the school event gave more publicity to the dog group and shelter. I had many outside the gates ask me questions. Did have 2 dogs escape under one section of the fense but they were quickly captured and returned. The pool manager found something to plug it up.

    The event seemed very planned out and visitor friendly. The pool set-up was very good with the ramp and the steps. The booths were good as well. I liked the poop bags in the chain-link fence. Plenty of parking...

    So much fun seeing all shapes & sizes of dogs having a blast in the pool, playing on the lawn and GETTING ALONG! Even my fraidy dog joined in the fun for once. Very glad I was a part of this event.

    This is our most exciting event! Although it's a lot of work preparing for it, it's worth every bit of time plus some. Each and every year this event has become a DFW favorite and we plan on keeping it that way.
