Unleash fun May 6 at Dogapalooza in Cookeville
Caleb Rice and his top dog Thor enjoy an afternoon at Dogwood Park in Cookeville, where the eighth annual Dogapalooza will be held May 6.
For Caleb Rice of Cookeville, every day can be a good day with his dog, Thor.“Thor has saved me from myself,” he said of his brown and white Staffordshire bull terrier. “I can’t remember a time when I had a bad day and got home and it continued to be bad.”For that reason, Cookeville Leisure Services is offering dog owners an opportunity to honor their pets in a Top Dog Photo Display during the department’s eighth annual Dogapalooza, which is May 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Dogwood Park at 30 E. Broad Street.“This is a chance to show off your dog,” said Cathy Benich, event organizer. “Last year, quite a few people stopped to look at the photos and enjoyed reading about what each of the dogs meant to their owners.”Those planning to participate have until May 3 to send their photos, along with their dog’s name, breed and two to three sentences about why their dog is “Top Dog” to them.
