Upcoming Events in October

Fall is coming and with it comes even more fun for you and your dog!

The Morgantown Dog Owner's Group is pleased to announce "Doodle Day" at Stanley's Spot on Sunday, October 14 from 10am to 12:30.

Don't know what a 'doodle is? They are a mixed breed dog, part of whose ancestry includes a poodle (where the -oodle comes from). First there were Labradoodles, but now there are GoldenDoodles too. (Some history of the breed.)

So, if you have a Doodle, or would like to see and meet some Doodles, come on down to Stanley's Spot on Sunday October 14 from 10am to 12:30.

For more information on Doodle Day, contact MDOG President Cliff Harvey.

If Doodle Day isn't your cup of kibble, you can still come on down to Marilla Park later that afternoon for the Mon River Trails Conservancy's "Tails for Trails" event.

Beginning at 2pm - registration from 1pm-2pm - Tails for Trails will hold a Dog Walk from Marilla Park to Stanley's Spot and back (approximately 2 mostly-flat, paved miles) on the Rail Trail. Important details:

* Pre-registration by October 7 is $7 per dog
* Registration after October 7 until the walk is $10 per dog
* All dogs must be leashed at all times, have license and vaccination
* No more than 2 dogs per walker, and no dogs "in heat"
* No aggressive animals (officials have the right to refuse participation)
* The Dog Walk will share the trail with other users - please walk on the right!

The first 50 dogs to register to participate will receive a PETCO neckerchief and "doggie bag" of surprises! Refreshments will be served at the walk's end in Marilla Park.
