A day for the dogs

The sun came out for the DoggieStock festival! And so did our Valley’s responsible pet owners.

There was not a misbehaving pooch in more than 200 canine attendees. The backdrop of sunlit Mount Si and music from great area bands helped make Saturday a true day of tails and music. The Valley has seen nothing like this before!

An estimated 1,000 humans attended throughout the day. The Doggie Olympics drew more than 40 canine competitors, including a defending champion for “the loudest speak” — a howling Bassett who took first place again.

Thank you to the city of Snoqualmie for granting us use of Centennial Fields, a tremendous venue. We hope that we lived up to our promise to leave it just the way it was. Thanks as well to all our generous sponsors, vendors and volunteers.

All participants in DoggieStock II are looking forward to next year’s event, which hopefully will draw even more local businesses, residents… and their humans.
