Every dog drools over, desires and dreams for a day at Mutt Strut, an annual event that celebrates our pooches.  Give your dog a chance to make those dreams come true as they show off their cheery disposition, athleticism and delightful fashions at the 9th annual Mutt Strut sponsored by Everett Parks and Recreation and Everett Animal Shelter. This year’s dream-studded event will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28 at Langus Riverfront Park, 400 Smith Island Rd. near the Everett Animal Shelter. Let your dog prance on the ¾ mile community dog walk and stop by the pet-friendly information booths. Then get ready to let your dogs’ dreams soar as they show off their talents in these competitive events: racing, catching, jumping, best vocals, best dressed, musical sit and most tricks in one minute. Free microchips will be available for dogs who reside in Everett or unincorporated Snohomish County.  Microchips allow easy identification and reunion should your pet become lost.

Other furry friends have a chance to dream as animal rescue organizations from around the state visit with dogs, puppies, kittens and cats looking for new adoptive forever homes. Admission is free. Registration is required to enter the competitions. Competition fee is $5 per event or $10 for unlimited contest entries. All dogs will receive a dreamy bandana.For schedule of events and rules and regulations, visit www.everettwa.org/muttstrut or call 425-257-8300 ext 2.
