Signs - WOOF

On Sunday 17th I joined my colleague Sue and her husband and her dog to the Shelley foreshore park for the Tails on the trail event, which included walks with dogs, best dressed dog parade, food trucks, kids play areas, dog bath vans, music, etc.
Of course the event wasn't just for dog owners, all were welcome. 

It was a fun day for young and old and for all the four legged woofs that participated and joined their owners at the park.
Sadly the choice of food vans was minimal which is not usually the case, but I heard the Council was charging a high fee for them to participate...

This was an event to celebrate 'dogs' and inspire the participants to celebrate a happy, healthy balanced life with their pets.
Best of all I found plenty of signs!

For other signs from around the world check Tom's blog.




The event mascot
The various tents where they sold doggie goodies, a cuddle booth, dog run area, the park with people relaxing in front of stage.  






I was amazed how well the dogs behaved, some of them were pretty cute light the little fellow below, and some were very adventurous going on the paddle board with their owners.


The best dressed dog was won by this true Ozzie dog and owner wearing the same shirt and hat 🤣. Had to stand behind the stage as there was a photographer on the front corner which blocked my view.

  5. I hope the dogs were really having fun! The people obviously were. It's amusing that the old idea that dogs have a better sense of smell than people persists despite neuroscience exploration of the topic that turns out to be more complex and not what was thought in earlier times. But it's too appealing an idea to disappear (no matter what science discovers).

  10. What a fun post, but I thought you were a CAT person (grin). Seriously, this is a great event. We have something similar, but it's a dog and people marathon run for charity. They call it WOOFSTOCK and people raise money for shelter dogs so they aren't euthanized. I thoroughly enjoyed your photos, too.

    1. I am a cat person Elizabeth, but don't mind dogs. I actually have no idea what is being done with the money raised with this event, hope it would be for the dog shelter. Woofstock is a great name :)

    1. Thanks Andrew, it certainly was a fun day. I also want a Portuguese food van here :) The only place to get Portuguese food in Perth is the Portuguese club and we have a bakery/cafe, but both are about 30min from me.

    1. Thanks Iris. Yes that is a lion, I have no idea why there was a lion mascot when they have a dog mascot in the City of Canning. Maybe the dog was busy :)
