Whew Doggies!

Saturday September 18, 2010 Exclaim Media had a ton of fun, at this year’s Dogapalooza! Dogapalooza is an annual fundraiser hosted by The Humane Society of Cowlitz County and The Dog Zone, to benefit The Humane Society of Cowlitz County. Events took place at the Cowlitz County Fairgrounds at 1900 7th Ave. in Longview, Washington.

Every year this free event for you and your dog(s) is time to come and have some fun! 2-legged and 4-legged friends enjoyed presentations, games and concessions and only a little rain.  Rain or shine did not stop the garbage bag-protected cameras of Exclaim Media from catching the action!

Presentations included:

  • AKC FUN MATCH (dog show),
  • RALLY/OBEDIENCE EVENT (show & go)
  • HERDING DOG TRIAL
  • FLYBALL DEMOS
  • K-9 NOSEWORK DEMOS

Games were to be had (of course):

  • Sled Dog Demo:  See authentic racing dogs in action.
  • Silly Dog Contests (like longest tail, shortest ears, grayest muzzle, best kisser)
  • Police Dog Demo:  See the skills of a bona fide police dog.
  • Howlin’ Wolf Contest:  Is your dog the next Miley Cyrus or Pavarotti?
  • Peanut Butter Eating Contest:  Which dog can empty the spoon the fastest?
  • Ball Fiend:  Laugh at a group of dogs chasing a group of balls.
  • Costume Contest:  How cute & clever can you be?  You can be in costume too.
  • Low Rider Races (bulldogs & bassets):  Who’s the fastest low rider?
  • Tiny Titans Races:  Who’s the champion of the under 20# weight class?
  • Wiener Dog Races:  It’s crazy!  It’s chaotic!  It’s a barrel of laughs!

We hope to see you there next year, but if you would like to see what happened, we will keep you posted as to when and where footage is available!
