ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- While last week may have been too cold and snowy for our four-legged friends to enjoy the outdoors, this Saturday certainly made up for it.
Dogs and their owners from all over gathered at the Eagles Club in Rochester to simply celebrate their dogs. There was plenty of activity for both man and man's best friend. Treats and toys, a frisbee show and a chance for dogs to say hello to one another.
The turnout for the event was large for this being in its first year, and it brings great joy for all who attended, whether they were on two legs or on four.
"Today is a day that is all about the love, the companionship and the devotion that we have for our four-legged friends, the dog," says Pam Miller, owner of Bone Appetite Cuisine Bakery. "It's a way to just enjoy the love that we have. It's also a fun way to just bring together people that love their dogs and to have some fun."
Rescue groups from southeast Minnesota were also in attendance for anyone that wanted to look into pet adoption. It is a free event and looks to expand in the years to come.
