There is something exciting for everyone at the 18th annual Summer Scoop and Reunion. Meet former WKYC meteorologist Bruce Kalinowski, a local celebrity and special supporter of old dogs, and the fabulous staff and veterinarians at the Tremont Animal Clinic in the historic Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio.
Paw print painting: Preserve your old pooch's paw in non-toxic, washable paint. Get a print of your best friend's paw print suitable for framing.
Old Dog Olympics: An agility course paced just right for old dogs. Your old dog can wander through the tunnel; jump the hurdles, or stroll through the weave poles. The Old Dog Olympics are a popular part of the Summer Scoop! Every old dog is a winner and will receive a gold medal for participating! In 2018, the Old Dog Olympics are hosted again by our friend Chris from Woofwise Dog Training. Chris is a true friend to senior dogs, hosting a White Whiskers class several times a year to give old dogs another opportunity to socialize and learn.
Massage for your Pooch: Your old friend will enjoy a relaxing mini-massage courtesy of Jeff Varga of the Trotting Troubadour. You will also learn some basic massage techniques that you can use at home.
Relax in the shade and enjoy a host of light vegan refreshments, including cool vegan ice cream. For the dogs (and people) who just like to relax, there are lots of shade trees and a large, cool shelter with plenty of picnic tables and refreshments. As always, admission and parking are free. Fully accessible.
