Doggie Days of Smithtown

Woof woof!  Oh man, The rains fell on Smithtown today but Doggie Day happened!  I wanted to hold this event to introduce my work grounds to a new audience of people, and we did just that.  Even though yesterday it POURED and today there was drizzle, we had about 70 or so doggies come, and those who did had a wonderful time.  We hosted an animal blessing, a herding demonstration, we played sit-and-stay musical chairs, we learned about grooming, we learned about aggression, we read doggie stories, we played around with the farm animals.  I am so glad I did it, and I think we are going to try again for next year, just in the spring.

Enjoy some photos!  And thank you to everyone who donated to our raffles!  You helped my little historical society make some new friends!

    what a super event! and I’m so glad that 70 doggies came and enjoyed all that cool things… I would like to watch a herding demonstration, although my momma said I’m egg-stremely far away to become a herding dog once …

    Rain on your day ~ why that just sucks. But it still sounds like a good turn out. It was nice that you had the Blessing of The Animals. No one can predict the weather and you certainly did a lot of work to pull it together.
    Thanks for being a friend
