Yorkies at 3rd Annual Bark at the Beach

Holden Beach held it's 3rd annual "Bark At The Beach" dog walk and show to raise money for Easter Seals on Saturday, April 11th. They raise over $5,000 and had around 60 dogs show up.
First event was the 1-mile dog walk, that had dogs of all sizes and breeds entered. Pictured below are some of the Yorks that walked.

Along the way, they had waterholes set up to keep the dogs hydrated, and the people rested. It also served as a social area for dogs to meet and sniff...I mean greet.


Santa flew in to help judge the contests, and to make sure all the dogs were being nice. I hear that Santa rents a cottage at Holden Beach during the summer...seems Mrs. Claus loves to shop at the Beach Mart, and go fishing with Santa off the pier.


After the walk there was a great K-9 demo from the sheriff's department. The deputy was very informative and the dog was well behaved in a small, crowded area. It was a great idea, and everyone really enjoyed it.








There was a large Yorkie turnout, and we met some great owners. Oh yeah, there were other dogs there too. Labs, pugs, poodles, you name it, and I think it was there..even a bloodhound.

Even a celebrity was spotted at the show...didn't they write a book about her..you never know who'll show up.

Shiloh makes a break for it, as he walks across the stage...might be why he didn't win. But he did well. considering it was his first time out at any type of show or event. He doesn't travel well in the car, so that limits his availability.

Elsie awaits the judges decision as they watch some of the other dogs. Tinkerbell was very well behaved as she walked across the stage, unlike her Uncle Shiloh (above).


So Tinkerbell Cupcake of Waterside wins "Smallest Dog" certificate and a free nail clipping..just what she loves most...someone messing with her paws. But, seriously, it was a nice prize and we have 4 Yorkies that wrestle like bears, when you try and clip their paws.
It was a great day, a little breezy at times, and we enjoyed meeting all our new friends, seeing all the beautiful dogs, and help raise some money for a great cause.
Maybe next year we'll bring the other dogs and make it a Yorkie family thing..maybe Carly can show how she loves to give hugs...or Patty can snarl for the judges...she is such a crazy dog. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my "tail" of our fun time at "Bark At The Beach". And we'll see everyone next year.
