The essence of Wags

 

What is Wags-for-Wishes? Everything for dogs - the Canine Olympics! So many things to do. Besides Lure Coursing, there's:

Dock Jumping (Splash Dogs):

It's SuperDog!!

 

 

 

 

WAGS = WOW!!

 

 

 

 

 

All this plus Flyball, Instinct Testing, Conformation, and much, much more! The net proceeds go to the Wish Kids at Make-A-Wish, so come join in the fun and help a great charity, too!

Go to the Wags website for more information.

Okay, Wags 2008 has come and gone. It was a new Wags at a new location with new events - and everyone had a great time, as usual! This year we added Sprint and we got to run the dogs on GRASS! (we ran just over 400 dogs over the weekend). We had a terrific field and the photos here show just how much fun we all had. As always, when looking at these incredible dogs, please remember that most of them are companions - not working dogs - but big or small, they all have one thing in common: they love to chase!!

Thanks again to everyone who came out - the people and their dogs, the wonderful volunteers, our hard-working crew, and the entire Wags team - and for making another Wags a great success! Enjoy the photos!
