Send a link to a friend

[JUNE 3, 2004]  Main Street Lincoln will host the third annual Dog Daze of Summer on Saturday, June 26. This event will please any canine lover! Bring your dogs to the Blue Dog Inn and register to participate in all of the morning’s festivities. Registration begins at 8:30. Abe and Mary Todd will lead the pet parade at 9:30. 

You can register your dog for the following contests: best dressed, cutest, fastest eater (dogs will be given a treat and the fastest dog wins), most kissable (each dog will have to give their owner a "kiss" on command), most spots (either real of fake -- be creative!), most unique tail and best pet trick. There will also be wading pools for your dog to enjoy.

K-9 demonstrations and local adoptable dogs will also be a part of the fun. The Logan County Animal Control will be asking for the community to "stuff the doghouse" with donations for the shelter. So feel free to bring old collars, blankets, toys, food or anything else that these loving animals would need.

The "Who Let the Dogs Out" dog art will be on display in the historic Logan County Courthouse. These 12 fiberglass dogs are truly a work of art! 

If you don't have a dog, bring your kids!  There will be a K-9 Kids Zone full of games! 

The day will once again be sponsored by Best Friends Animal Hospital, Big R and Lincoln Animal Hospital.

For registration information, please contact Main Street Lincoln, (217) 732-2929. Preregistration will be available for $8, and on-site registration is $10.  Each registered dog will receive a collectable Dog Daze of Summer bandanna.
