It was a day devoted to dogs and their owners Saturday, at the 3rd annual “Scratch and Sniff Fun Day” held at Kendrick Park.

The event raised about $1,800 for the Sheridan County Dog and Cat Shelter.

The dog/people pairs could compete in a variety of games including an obstacle course, the 'Scratch and Sniff event where dogs had to find the hidden treat, and then there was the ever popular 'bobbing for hot dogs.'

Cel Hope, executive director of the Dog and Cat Shelter says the day served a two-fold purpose.

Folks had their own reasons for being there. Bill Mynatt brought “Scrappy” and “Moose” in to learn some social graces for pooches.

Did “Scrappy” behave?

With the 'dog days of summer' coming to a close, folks ages 5 to 80 turned out to enjoy the event and Hope says the price was right.

Eight year-old Cameron Sanburn had his dog “Ellie” there. The obstacle course proved a bit troublesome.

You might expect to find Polish dogs at the fun day, but a Polish chicken, amongst all those dogs? Jack Ross explains.

Well over 60 dogs and their owners showed up for the fun event.
