Greenville’s Carefree Connection Bus Tours would like to thank our community for coming out to Greenville’s first time ever dog festival. Despite the hot and steamy July day, it was a HUGE success! Folks came from all around with their families and 4-legged friends to enjoy the fun and fellowship. Our judges Marc Saluk, Susie Riegle, Mayor Bowers and Penny Perry did a fabulous job handing out 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons to the competing contestants. Cindy Denniston of Union City, Indiana and her dog Mya took home “Best of Show!”
Everyone enjoyed Tipp City and Mercer County K-9 unit demos, Special Guest Russell Rex and his Flyball Dogs, wiener dog races, doggie contests and more… The Darke County Humane Society adopted lovable pets to good homes as the Animal Shelter took in donations throughout the day.
We would like to thank the Greenville City Dept., Police Dept., EMT’s and the Doseck, Voigt, Cross and Flory family for volunteering their time. To check out festival photos or order a festival t-shirt, please visit our website at www.diggitydogfest.com. We’re in the works for planning the 2nd Annual Doggie Festival in September/October of 2011.
