Events Season

Where has the summer gone?? The days are getting shorter, and our niece and nephew are back in school already. That said, fall is actually my favorite season because I love anticipation. And holidays, especially Halloween. 

Fall is also a good season for being outdoors with the dogs. It's not so hot that they'll overheat or burn their paws on the pavement, and it's not snowy and cold yet. It looks like I'm not the only one who thinks so, because there are a bunch of dog-themed events going on in Massachusetts this fall!

You're bringing us along, right?

Saturday, Sept. 8th
Get lost with your dog in a corn maze! Marini Farms is hosting "Doggy Days", which will benefit Ipswich Humane Group. Dogs are allowed, free of charge, on both the 8th and the 9th.
Sunday, Sept. 9th
There are actually TWO events going on this day, the Pet Rock Festival in Worcester (which is actually about pets and rock music, not pet rocks) and MSPCA's Walk for Animals, which takes place in 3 separate locations. My parents and sister are going to be in town this weekend, so hopefully I can convince them that they want to spend their vacation surrounded by dogs.

Sunday, Sept. 16th
The Somerville Dog Festival features contests and events you can try with your dog. I'm hoping to try out frisbee and nosework with the dogs. Who knows? Maybe we had a champion all along and didn't even know it!

If being a champion involves food, I could totally do it!

Saturday, Oct. 13th
Buddy Dog Humane Society is holding Woofstock in Hudson. I glanced through their adoptable dogs list, and Susie and Sasha, who were featured on 2 Punk Dogs, are still available. I wonder if Buddy Dog would trade them for two little pitbull mixes...

Sunday, Oct. 14th
Chelmsford Dog Association is holding Howl'oween, which includes a costume contest. I'm really excited because Halloween is my favorite holiday. Maybe we can do a group costume with the 4 of us. (Badger, Mushroom, and Llamaentity will all need some convincing.)


Are there any dog-themed or dog-friendly events you're looking forward to?


  1. There is a 2 day dog festival coming up this weekend in Lake Tahoe. I can't wait!

    1. That sounds fun. I've only been to Lake Tahoe in the winter. I bet it's beautiful right now!

    2. It's awesome! As someone who doesn't like winter sports, summer is the best and my dogs much prefer it.
