MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Dog Owners Group raised $320 at its Poochapalooza Wine-Tasting and Yappy Hour at Marysville’s WineStyles on May 14.
Half a dozen dogs arrived in style by white doggy limousines, courtesy of Canine Cozy Care Resort, for the Yappy Hour dog party, which was part of the afternoon event.
The event also featured tasty treats and gift bags from Poochapalooza sponsors The Dining Dog Cafe & Bakery and Dmarie’s Boutique in Edmonds, and showcased dog-related and other works of art from Jennifer Bloom of Haute Portraiture.
The wine-tasting was a kickoff for the fifth annual Poochapalooza Outdoor Dog Event, which is set for 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on July 9 this year at the Strawberry Fields Park, located at 6100 152nd St. NE in Marysville.
All proceeds from the wine-tasting, and Poochapalooza, will go to support the Strawberry Fields for Rover Off-Leash Dog Park, which is maintained by M-DOG through donations.
