Information taken from HSV Ticket Sales dot com:

“A dog walks into a bar… It’s not a joke, he’s just the guest of honor at a swanky Yappy Hour. The dog-friendly social gathering is a fun and unique way of getting spoiled with your pooch, and a way of meeting other pet owners while your pet makes new friends of their own.

Thursday April 29th from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.

DeSoto Dog Park- large dog compound

Cost: $10 dog family- two related dog owners and their dogs, or one dog owner and two dogs.

$6.00 single dog owners and their dog

Music, wine, and beer for pet owners and doggy treats for the pets

Each paid pet owner will receive a raffle ticket to enter for a drawing of nice prizes

Sponsors on hand will provide a service to spoil your dog (no charge)

Please do not bring in your own food or doggy treats inside the compound. Dog owners will be responsible for keeping control of their pets at all times during the program. All dog park rules apply.”
