After the first year of the "covid" life, we were all going a little bug-eyed. We wanted to do something safe and supportive of the community so we thought we would help the local shelters by collecting blanket and towels. Then we thought, why not have a couple food trucks. And then we thought, why not have people bring their dogs when they come and play in the field by the office and maybe have a dog obstacle course... Well, the idea caught fire and grew to 25+ booths, 2 food trucks, a dog obstacle course, dog adoptions, and lots of volunteers having a blast of a day!! Channel 2 News even came out for the fun!
As 2022 got going, vendors and dog lovers started asking if we were doing it again. If we were, we needed a grassy place (our field was a bit stickily). As we looked, my church and their grassy area came to mind. Mountain View Baptist Church has a huge area, lots of parking AND bathrooms! Yay, no Honey-Buckets! MVBC loves our community and loved the idea of getting involved.
What a success!! Over 50 booths, 3 food trucks, a mobile vet, dog agility demonstrations and a new and improved obstacle course. Hundreds of dogs and people came for the fun. 2023 will be even better!
So what started as a cabin fever idea to collect a few things has turned into a family fun and dog day supporting great canine causes, hope and our community of Northern Utah. Who'd a thought that could happen! Apparently God had bigger plans that I could imagine. Cool!
