The petting zoo was popular with all ages and brushes were available to help groom the goats, burro and Angus the Akbash.

While nail trimming may not be a favorite activity of our canine friends, snacks and an expert approach made it more like a spa day than a sufferfest.
Some dogs were happier about getting bathed than others.
Even the party favors were for the dogs.
This good dog was waiting patiently for his snacks.

The main tent had food, music, drinks, and, of course, copies of the current issue of Aspen Sojourner!
Sunday marked the fourth annual Dog Day Afternoon and Community Carnival at the Aspen Animal Shelter, a BYOD (bring your own dog) event. The day included a dog wash station, petting zoo, fire trucks, bounce house, dunk tank, dogs up for adoption, live music by Midnight Lightning, silent auction, and food and beverages generously donated by local restaurants. Proceeds from the event, which was hosted by the Friends of the Aspen Animal Shelter, went to the Aspen Community Foundation to help those affected by the Lake Christine Fire.
