Pullman's Off Leash Dog Park Softball Tournament and Mutt Strutt Fundraiser!


On Saturday after my open house I stopped at the store to pick up my sign and do some shopping.  The open house had lots of folks stopping by to see what the Pullman Real Estate Market had to offer.  As I went into Dissmores, I met one of the nicest ladies named Lori Ammons who was  promoting the Whitman County Humanity Society were at Dissmore's reminding folks that they have some wonderful pets up for adoption.

I told them that I would be happy to blog about the upcoming softball tournament and the Third Annual Mutt Strutt.  Yesterday I got this email from her with permission to pass along.  I would encourage you to do all that you can to help our four legged friends.  As the proud owner of 2 dogs, as well as 2 previous kitties and a new addition to our kitty family that we rescued up a tree, I know they will appreciate all you can do.  

I also think having a Off-Leash Dog Park will be a wonderful asset to Pullman!  I know many folks both in Pullman now, and considering re-locating to our area will appreciate this facility and all the hard work and donations to make this possible.  My hat is off to My Office Bar and Grill for supporting the softball tournament.  And  the Mutt Strutt sounds like a lot of fun, not to mention the possibility of winning some great prizes!

The tournament features 2 tournament brackets: featuring top teams from all over the Pacific Northwest.  There will be great prizes for winning teams.  There will be food concessions, raffle tickets and tournament T-Shirts sales with proceeds to go toward the dog park benches.

The Third Annual Mutt Strutt takes place Saturday, September 24th, 2011 at Sunnyside Park in Pullman from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.  This community event raises money for the Whitman County Humane Society's Off-Leash Dog Park. The event features a dog walk-a-thon as well as a dog costume, dog photo, and dog/owner look-a-like contests. Participants in the walk-a-thon can enter individually or as part of a team.  Children age 6-13 can register for the walk-a-thon for free and are eligible to win a WII if they raise the most money.  Partipants 14 and older are eligible to win an IPAD 2.  The team that raises the most money wins a bowling party for up to 40 people at Zeppoz's.

GREAT fund raising activities in the Pullman area Lori and dog parks are such fun to let the dogs off leash. I love that term Mutt Strutt.

I am a big fan of off leaf dog parks.  It should encourage people to treat their pets as more than an ornament they leave lay around the house.  When our dogs were alive we used to love to take them to an open field for unrestricted play

I would be thrilled to have ANY dog park! We had a mutt strut at Doggie Day Out (aLions Club event in Huntsvile) and it was a blast!
