June 28 and 29, dogs and their human companions will take to the sand in Long Beach, WA for two days of fun and challenging competition. This year’s Olympic games will kick off with an opening ceremony and lighting of the Olympic flame, and then the real fun begins! Festivities include events such as Babe Ruth Obedience Baseball, the Luciano Pavarotti Commemorative Sing Off, Nadia Comaneci agility trials, and the always popular Peanut Butter Lick. Pawprint-shaped medals will be awarded to top dogs in each event. Various contests have entry fees; the games are free to those who want to cheer on the action. Learn more at DoggieOlympicGames.com.
