Show your furry friends some puppy love at Bark on the Boards

Hot diggity dog! The 6th Annual Bark on the Boards Dog Walk takes place this Saturday, October 1, at Lake Gerar Park, located at the north end of the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. Check in and registration begins at 10:30 a.m. with the dog walk at noon.

This year's event theme is ‘Pups for President’ and features a Patriotic Best Costume Contest for all furry four-legged participants. There will also be refreshments, vendors, prizes, giveaways, a raffle, children’s activities, and a fantastic performance at by Mid Atlantic Disc Dogs at 11:00 a.m.

You’ll have a dog-gone good time while taking strides against animal suffering. Proceeds from the event will go to help the homeless animals of the Delaware SPCA. The event also celebrates the off-season when dogs regain their freedom and are welcome back on the boardwalk and beach. So break out Fido’s leash and your kicks (or flip-flops if you prefer) and take to the boards to help animals in need.

No dog? No problem! You don’t need a canine companion to participate. All are welcome to show some puppy love and enjoy a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk, and participate in fun activities for the whole family.

All participating pups must be current on their vaccinations and leashed and under control at all times. Please remember to scoop up after your pet (baggies will be provided). Water stations and treats will also be on hand (and paw). Enjoy an after paw-ty at the Big Chill Surf Cantina, 19406 Coastal Highway, following the walk.

Playtime at the Beach: Sit. Stay. Drink!

Playtime at the Beach: Sit. Stay. Drink!

The dog days of summer are here. Not just because it’s hot, but because there’s a party specifically designed for festive pups (and their owners) that enjoy a hot-diggity-doggy good time! Come. Sit. Stay. Drink!

Meet and mingle with canine friends, their human parents, and fellow animal lovers while enjoying great food and drink. Playtime at the Beach is a series of dog-friendly happy hours hosted by local restaurants and bars in Rehoboth Beach that benefits our four-legged friends of the Delaware Humane Society (DHA). There will be plenty of good bites, but hopefully not much bark.

DHA is committed to providing for the needs of homeless and owned dogs and cats in our community. They make “friends for life” by connecting people with animals, and by building strong relationships to better serve our community.

Come to Rigby’s Bar & Grill, located at 404 Rehoboth Avenue, this Saturday, August 20 from 4-7 p.m. for the third installment of the series (held June – September). Pooches are welcome but must be on a leash. A portion of the proceeds from each happy hour will be donated to the DHA. Whether two- or four-legged, all participants will have a tongue-wagging and tail-swinging good time.

Mark your calendar now for the fourth and final installment on Saturday, September 10 at The Purple Parrot.
