The CBS Radio Pet-A-Palooza is billed as “Sacramento’s biggest
free pet event,” and is presented by CBS Radio, BelAir, Raley's,
Lashers Elk Grove Subaru, and sponsored by Cache Creek, SolarCity, SMUD,
VCA and ESKATON.
The event is open from 10 to 4, with disc dog demonstrations from Lark and Vader, in conjunction with The Disc Dogs of the Golden Gate disc dog club, will be taking
place at 11am, 1pm, and 2:30pm. Along side the disc dog demonstrations,
there will also be a dog obstacle course, an exotic animal show, pet
adoptions area, a kid's area, food vendors and a beer garden. (I think I should stay away from "the garden!")
On top of all that, the musical entertainment will be presented by American Idol’sHaley Reinhart and singer-songwriters Matt Nathanson and Ben Rector!
Even though Toss and Fetch is more up Vader's alley, we floated the discs higher than normal because the wind was a wonky beast this day so I played it safe and the floaters made for fun times for the fans as they watched Vader jump for his discs!
Lark performed flawlessly, except for the fact that some of the floating discs did not want to come down to meet her anxious teeth!
Of course the day would not be totally complete without a little adventure.
The sound system that was provided for us went belly up which delayed the event by just a few minutes until one of the team members just happened to drag out their old system that they had with them in their car.
This upcoming Saturday, April 9th, 2016, Vader and team will be at William Land Park in support of the Sacramento SPCA Doggy Dash Event, which is perfect, considering all of Team Vader consists of rescue pups!
