All 4 Fun Dog Festival at Circle of Friends Humane Society

Last weekend, I was in North Dakota for the Grand Forks Women’s Show.  At the show, I learned that the Circle of Friends Humane Society is having a special event next weekend.  On October 9, 2011 they are hosting the All 4 Fun Dog Festival.  The event starts at noon with an alumni reunion i.e., dogs adopted from Circle of Friends Humane Society.  Lunch will be served by the Manvel Fire Department.  After that, the contests start.  Besides the usual categories of best costume, best tail wagger, best trick and owner look-alike, they have a special one . . . most disobedient.  The day wraps-up with doggy games and a silent auction.  If you live in Grand Forks or the surrounding area, I hope you will spend some time at the All 4 Fun Dog Festival.  See the website for more information. 

Just a quick word of thanks to all who attended the Grand Forks Women’s Show.  I had a wonderful time talking about animals with you all.
