Dog Days of Summer

Tomorrow is Bowen Island's 15th annual "Dog Days of Summer" event, hosted by the Union Steamship Marina.

Lots of categories for "man's best friend" to compete in with proceeds going to the BC Guide Dog Services.

So grab Fido and hop on the ferry to show off your best Stupid Pet Tricks.

Phin & Onslo

This beautiful Newfoundland won for "Most Obedient" and "Best Trick" in 2003 by rescuing a "drowning" victim under the direction of his owner, Holly Graff. Onslo swam out into the ocean with a towrope and pulled the distressed damsel safely back to shore. My hero.
