Dog'gone Good Fun Day in the Park this Sunday, March 29th, at Rusch Park Citrus Heights

Every year Sierra Pacific Great Pyrenees Club (rescue) puts on an annual event called "Dog'gone Good Fun Day at the Park". It's open to the public and we invite all spayed/neutered, mixed bred dogs and purebreds to come and play in the park and have a "dog'gone good fun day in the park".  The event is Sunday, March 29th at Rusch Park in Citrus Heights.  

Obedience, rally and canine good citizenship tests are in the morning with raffles and doggie diva costume contests at lunch around noon.  There are food concessions and raffles...you can even buy your doggies a new collar or costume, if you didn't bring one with you.  Ladies have been busy baking and will offer "feel good food" for sale.
