FHS holds first Happy Tails dog walk

This former Foothills Humane Society (FHS) shelter dog seems to be asking a young art critic, “Do you really like my painting?” The dog took part in doggie painting at the first Happy Tails dog walk held by the FHS shelter on Sept. 18. Dogs were invited to walk, roll or sit on a plastic sheet that covered paint spread on paper underneath by their owners. The plastic was then removed and revealed the doggie art.
The Happy Tails dog walk attracted more than 100 participants, most of who brought dogs adopted from the shelter. Featured activities, in addition to doggie painting and the dog walk itself on trails at FENCE, included an obedience training class and an agility course.
The event was sponsored by CostCo and supported by: The Book Shelf, Pub ‘n Tub, Dogwood Farm Kennels and two local “doggie art” artists. (article submitted by Joyce Cox; photo submitted by Elaine H. Pearsons)
