Welcome to this weeks episode of Connect The Dots with your host, Karen Gidderon. This week our episode will feature DOGAPAWLOOZA 2013! This annual event is hosted by The Dog Zone to benefit Humane Society of Cowlitz County!
As cat-lovers you might wonder what would draw us to an event with SO MANY dogs…well…we love animals…we even like dogs…we just prefer to LIVE with animals of the feline persuasion…and we knew that since the ALPHA of all alpha dogs is Doug Kalberg, owner of The Dog Zone, that as long as we stayed on his good side he would make sure we were alright…we cut that part out, but we did hand him a few doggy treats before he bounded away to play with his four-legged friends!
DOGAPAWLOOZA takes place at the Cowlitz County Fairgrounds and lasts 2 whole days! The event is free and open to the public. There are a few events that cost a few dollars to join in, but really, it is a great place to take the whole family, whether they walk on two or four legs. There are informational booths, games, concessions and the air drips with excitement (and usually rain…we do live in the Pacific Northwest…if you are new to the area…we promise you wont melt as long as you are not a relative of the Wicked Witch of the West).
DOGAPAWLOOZA began as a wiener dog race at the fair, hosted by Humane Society of Cowlitz County but was eventually handed off to The Dog Zone because they LOVE to do it. Meant to be a fundraiser, there are a few places you can make your donation to help out some of furry friends in our area that need a new home.
