Thank you to all who braved the scorching heat and made it out to our Dog Jog. What a hot one, but we all survived! Lots of water all around for both humans and pups! Some brave souls even jogged up and down the road. We loved meeting all your gorgeous furry companions (and of course you too)! Thank you Swissridge Kennels and Olympus K9 for donated amazing prizes. All donations and raffle proceeds went to the OVC Pet Trust charity. Our Mayor Paul Mills and his lovely wife Linda were our judges for the contest. We think they did an awesome job and thank them so much for joining us!
