Dog days on Sunday

The 2nd Annual Doggy Fest 2016 took place next to City Hall on Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. It was a secret to me until I came upon it and many Grovites were surprised about the event, too, as I ran into a lot of locals who wondered why no one knew about it, but whomever their audience is, they knew, because there were hundreds of people out from other parts of the city and county, with their four legged friends. It just sort of popped up, and it was great.


There was live music and entertainment, dog adoptions, food trucks, a doggie fashion show and lots more. There were so many cute dogs out, and so many people had more than one dog with them as they proudly strided into the event.



The food trucks of course are a favorite of mine and the whole thing was like one big doggy park with anything you could imagine.

This looks like a great event but it should NOT be held on an asphalt surface where dogs' feet can be burned. Too many people fail to think about how hot pavement can get, and while dogs' paw pads provide some protection, they are not designed to withstand hot pavement. This event should be moved to Regatta Park so our dogs -- the animals this event is held in honor of -- can enjoy it as well.
