“We will be having the perennial favourites – egg and spoon race and seven-legged race (or more legs depending on the number of dogs you have!), and of course, the ever popular, four-paws up – Bobbing for Wieners,” said Cheryl Rogers, one of the event’s organizers, in an email to the Record. “There will also be other fun activities for dogs and their people. We have lots of vendors and charities and shows, including dog agility and K9 Nosework.”

Doggy Fun Day is a fundraising event for VEATA, which has a mission to provide education around humane treatment of animals, responsible pet ownership and disaster preparedness. The non-profit also provides financial assistance for low-income pet owners and temporary, emergency fostering for pets of people in crisis.
