A huge thank you and two paws up to Mike Dodge, the PAWsome owner of Dodgie’s in East End, for organizing and hosting “Buddyfest 2013” on Aug. 25. Buddyfest was the third birthday party for his dog, Buddy. Proceeds benefitted the homeless animals at the Humane Society of Douglas County.
T-shirts with Buddy’s picture were sold, and hot dogs and birthday cake were available with a free will donation. Dogs in attendance enjoyed kiddie pools to drink water and cool off.
Thanks, too, to Miranda and Brooke from Smooch a Pooch Salon, who donated the earnings from their nail trims; Deputy Brian Witt and his dog Koba for the canine demonstration; and everyone who endured the heat to come out and support this event, including HSDC board members Michelle and Jean who sold raffle tickets for the Cause for the Paws.
Photos of the event can be seen on HSDC’s Facebook page under “Buddyfest 2013.”
