Auburn’s going to the dogs, but in a good way and only temporarily. On Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., downtown Auburn will celebrate all things canine during the second annual “For the Love of Dogs” festival. There will be games, contests and exhibitions and last year’s event attracted some 2,000 furry friends and their families.
“All good dogs on lead are invited,” said downtown development coordinator Sherrie Miller. “We want them to bring their families, too.”
Included in this day of dog-gone good fun are activities like: Frisbee, flygility, agility and “Meet the Breeds.” Trained dogs will give demonstrations on nosework, tracking, cart pulling, herding and obedience. K-9 Police Dogs and Therapy Dogs will be at the festival and rescued dogs, vaccinated and ready for adoption, will be on display. A Parade of Rescues and a Blessing of the Dogs will also take place.
I hope it was not a flop like it was last year. Oh what time it was in the City of Hall of Auburn when the money that was collected came up missing. The one in charged howled not I -I left eary. So the Great City Mayor and then blonde council member blamed a poor volunteer for this most evil of acts. NOW FOR REST OF THE STORY: The one who howled not I found the long lost "fortune", less than 500.00 a couple of months later. The City has A great Mayor that likes to blame everybody else except for her friends.
I hope this years event didn't leave any dogs howling or blame good dogs for the bad dogs mistake. I guess this year they didn't lose the big dog bone (cash box) like they did last year. Oh how the pack will turn on good dog in blink of a eye. The lead dog (Mayor) and her two side kicks Rim and Stinkey were quick to blame a good dog (innocent volunteer) just because her owner threw her out on the street(she lost her job) Now will this great fortune(less than $500.00) ever be found? One fine day Stinky was cleaning out her dog house (more like her van)guess what she found - the long lost treasure. I guess the moral to this true but sad story is in Auburn you're better off being a lone wolf.
