I managed to visit the Annual UPM dogathon organized by the Veterinary Faculty on the 10th of August 2008 at Bukit Expo. Now even though I am in UPM for the past 3 years, I didn’t went for the Dogathon even once so I guess this time I’ll go and visit and perhaps blog about it. *Warning: High amount of photos detected*
*I do not own any of the dogs in the photos below and credits go to all dog owners who allows me to take their photo*
*My knowledge on dog species is terrible. So other than the few species of dogs I know, I’ll refer to the dogs as simply dogs. Sorry on this~
This year’s theme is Aerospace!! Astronaut, Asteroids, Astrodogs… Woof Off!!! Now when I think about it, things like this pop up in my mind:
A series of games and contests are held for the owners and their dogs to compete in. I could barely remember half of the names of the games they played (but games like Simon Says! and Treasure Hunt was played)
There is a maze where the dogs compete to find their way out in the fastest time
But it seems that some of the dogs are really impatient to go through it since things like this happen
There was also one dog that jumped across all of the barriers set up to reach the end zone (No photos of this). Try imagining a dog jumping over all the walls of the maze in a straight line.
There is also an obstacle course for the dogs to participate in. Its something like National Service for dogs.
And then of course there are the dogs…
And so that’s it for this year’s Dogathon… I didn’t managed to stay till the end where they had a dress up contest for the dogs though… Anyway… Hope those who didn’t manage to make it this year can go next year, if you still have the chance… (Call me to go too ya… 😛 )
Oh… Ending this post will be a video of one of the stars of the day… Groovy (I think that’s the dog’s name) and his/her dance… It really damn nice…
~Anyone wanna dance with Groovy??~
