Dogs and Dragon Boats

Dragon Boat Races Gone to the Dogs

Saturday was the first annual “Dragon Boat Races” on Flathead Lake and we attended this fun event.  We were lucky enough to have a ring-side seat because we were watching the activities from a boat. We just happened to have a very well-behaved pooch with us and it wasn’t long before I noticed that many boaters had also brought their dogs to the races with them.

It was amazing how many people had their dogs with them in their boats. I started taking pictures and before long it seemed that every other boat on the Flathead was accompanied by their dog(s).

People in the Flathead Love Their Dogs

That must be one of the reasons the Humane Society has had so many friends and supporters locally.  People love their dogs, include them in their daily activities and recognize the importance of our mission of helping homeless pets.

Oh, and did I tell you how much fun it was at the Dragon Boat races? This video will show you some highlights from this fun event.
