Ahhh... one of the reasons I wanted a dog...to go to the Dog Paddle at Woodland Park of course. The Dog Paddle is this Saturday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Woodland Aquatic Center. (The rain date is 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 13.) The cost is $10 per dog with a limit of two people. There is an additional cost of $5 per person beyond the two. Proceeds will benefit the creation and maintenance of dog parks in Fayette County. All dogs must have a 2007, 2008 or 2009 rabies tag and proof of vaccination. I can't wait to take Elka!! She will love, love, love it! If she is not too stinky and wet after the swim, I think I need to follow through on that much discussed trip to the Barkery afterward.
