‘I knew he could do it’

One of the approximately 100 pairs of participants in a short course on the dog obedience at the first annual “Happy Tails” dog walk held by the Foothills Humane Society (FHS) on Sept. 18. Most of those who attended brought dogs adopted from the shelter. Featured activities, in addition to the dog walk around the grounds of FENCE, included an agility course, doggie painting and obedience training. With the help of staffer Kayla Parrish, dogs showed off their ability to learn to obey simple commands (sit, stay, down). The event was sponsored by Costco and included the following supporters of FHS: The Book Shelf, Pub ‘n Tub, Dogwood Farm Kennels and two local “Doggie Art” artists.
