Lorisaysthattheshorterthelegs,the faster the little sausage dogs can run. “That little fireball could really fly!” she says of her mini dapple Lola, who is 13 now. Her legs are only 2” tall. The wee wiener dogs can outrun many larger dogs and other breeds, Lori noted. Barclay, her seven-year-old black and tan standard male Dachshund, will accompany her to Dog Days. Competitors can take home amazing prizes. The first place winner will re- ceive a new bed, filled with all kinds of goodies, such as doggy hand wash, a blanket, toys and treats. Smaller gift baskets will be awarded to the second and third place dogs. Come on out and see for yourself how quickly Dachshunds can fly to- wards their favourite squeaky toy or a treat at the end of the finish line. “They go so fast it’s a blur!” Lori says. “It’s exciting! Barclay’s ears look like The Flying Nun from TV!” You can pre-register for the races by emailing Lori at lorigreene02@ or just show up for the heats scheduled for 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. SHEEPY SIBLINGS The Ontario Director of the Old English Sheepdog Club of Canada, Joy Griffiths, has enjoyed attending Dog Days of Scugog in the past, so she had the idea of holding the 2017 Sheepdog Festival in conjunction with it this year. Look for Joy and her beautiful service dog Mya, under the lime green banner. Sheepdogs and their people are planning to attend from as far as the east coast of Canada and the U.S. Joy has been breeding and showing sheepdogs for 28 years, so it will be like a reunion for Sheepy siblings, she says. “Sheepdogs are a majestic breed, and people are wowed by them,” noted Joy. “They have a sweet dis- position. They’re also hypoallergenic and they do not shed.” Consequently, like many other breeds, sheepdogs require regular grooming. Don’t miss the grooming demonstration! On Saturday, CGN (Canine Good Neighbour) testing will be available for all breeds, including pre-registra- tions and walk-ins. “We want to promote the idea that there are so many things you can do with your dogs, whether they are champion couch potatoes or agility dogs,” Joy commented.
