Celebrate National Dog Day at Brooklyn Heights Veterinary Hospital
Aug 26, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Dogs everywhere are taking the day off from work to celebrate a day created in 2004 by animal and lifestyle expert, Colleen Paige, to show deep appreciation for dogs and their endearing patience, unquestioning loyalty, capacity for love, and the way they enhance our lives in miraculous ways.
Join the residents of Brooklyn Heights, and their dogs, as they gather at Brooklyn
Heights Veterinary Hospital to honor the millions of rescue dogs who deserve to be celebrated. This event is co-sponsored by Brooklyn Heights Veterinary Hospital, Brooklyn Dog Walk and Mrs. Sizzle.
Local author Liz Weber will be there reading from her debut memoir, Memory Card Full, a story about her amazing dog, Rufus, and how his life and death changed her life.
Dr. Heather Thomson will also be on hand to talk about her newly established veterinary practice and the services offered.
Bring your dog, or your neighbor’s dog and have a glass of wine and some snacks. (There will be treats for the dogs, too, of course.)
