Welcome To Some Pet Fun!

October 25, 2012

doggie funWelcome to our pet blog! We thought we would start our blog with a post which highlights the fun side of being a pet owner. As a pet owner you will be well aware of the responsibility and work that comes with taking good care of your feline or canine friend, but there is also so much fun involved when caring for a pet. Here are some amusing stories and fun ideas that some pet owners have come up with:

Help Handi-Dogs while having fun at Dogtoberfest – Arizona Daily Star
Dogs painting pictures. A radar gun clocking how fast your pooch runs. A six-legged obstacle course.These are just a few of the things for people and their dogs to do together at this year’s Dogtoberfest…..

Sunday’s event also will include live music by the Crystal Ridge Bluegrass Band, raffles, dancing dog demonstrations, vendors, food and a beer garden.

Judges will judge 10 contests with categories including Best Dog Costume, Best Trick, Person/Dog Look-alike, and Best Dog Kiss.


And if that story got you smiling then check out this crazy idea for getting your pets involved in Halloween celebrations. The folks in Bridgeland have come up with a novel idea and they named it the Howl-O-Ween Fest. Sounds like a lot of fun so if you are in the area then why not join them for a day of fun:


Canines, kids – and adults – are donning their Halloween finest for hours of dog-themed fun at Bridgeland’s annual Howl-O-Ween Fest…

Also entertaining Howl-O-Ween Fest visitors will be Shaggy D, the BioMechanical WonderDog whose lively interactions will have people questioning whether he is really a robot. Pets Overboard, an energy-packed revue featuring a cast of dogs, cats and other animals, will be among the stage performers, as will Guennadi, and his world-famous dog and clown show that wowed audiences last year….

Other Howl-O-Ween Fest treats include a pooch fashion show and costume contest emceed by Channel 39′s Maggie Flecknoe, a farmers market with pumpkin patch, the high-flying antics of the Houston Canine Frisbee Disc Club, the Splash Dogs dock-diving competition, trick-or-treating for kids and dogs, and dozens of pet vendors…


But it gets even better! In downtown Mobile there is a yearly event called Woofstock and all you pet owners who appreciate good music will love this one. It’s got plenty of dog fun on offer and there is something for everyone to get excited about – including a chance to take part in doggie dress-up and of course some good music too:

If you haven’t decided what your dog baby is going to dress up as for Halloween, now is the time to decide! That’s because you won’t want to miss out on the big costume contest at Woofstock! Dress up with your pet and enter the Pet-Owner Look-a-like contest! Studio10 Host Cherish Lombard will be one of the judges!…

There will be a “Pup Crawl” at downtown Mobile bars starting at 12:00pm. Your dogs will have a blast playing at the Doggie Fun Zone! You can meet Greyhounds, Great Danes, and ARF dogs looking for nothing other than love and a good home! You’ll get to see demonstrations from the folks at Smeraglia’s Puppy University and the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office…..


And of course these fun events are always a great opportunity to include all pet owners in a good cause. This particular event is being organized by the Animal Rescue Foundation which will no doubt benefit from the proceeds. And there are even sponsorships available for as little as $350 which will allow you to have a vendor booth at the venue and get some exposure to the many dog lovers at the event. Sounds like a blast to me!!
