The first annual Downtown Doggie Daze was a success, thanks to the Downtown Merchants and Vendors that participated.
Dogs were invited to come downtown with their companions, pick up a ‘passport’, get 5 paw print stamps from participating businesses, & then be entered to win prizes valued over $300. About 300 passports were handed out from 11-3. A 5k walk/run was organized to leave from Crow’s Feet Commons.
Vendors on the Mirror Pond Plaza included: Ark Animal Clinic, Bend Pet Express, Bend Spay & Neuter Project, Bendy Dog (new business opening dwntn), Humane Society of Central Oregon (HSCO), JD Platt’s K-9 Kings Entertainment, K-9 Herbalist, & PET (pet evacuation team)
