Canine Carnival: Strut Your Mutt

Indio, California: Hundreds of campers gathered at Marina Park at the Motorcoach Country Club to attend "Strut Your Mutt". This event, hosted by the activity committee was held as a benefit for local animal shelters.

Several events were held within Strut Your Mutt - dog parades, costume contests in "theme" and "look-alike" categories and agility. Vendors set up booths to sell dog-related products and local shelters brought dogs for adoption. Raffle prizes, a dog-crazy RV resort and free booze guaranteed a good turnout.

MCC Agility Training?
The agility part of the event (held on the Bocce Ball court) was not a competition - just a chance to let owners lead their dogs through a small agility course.

Though some people just can't follow instructions... (I believe this was a dare?).



The rest of the afternoon was spent outside under our shade structure watching college hoops. Then we enjoyed our second Seder and had many visitors. Not Elijah though.

Until my next update, I remain, your petless correspondent.
