Easter Egg Huntin’ with the Pooch

Saturday, April 4, 2015
11:00 SHARP – 11:30 am
Dan Madia Field west of Thorne-Rider Park (enter on 11th St.)

This is one hunt that has definitely gone to the dogs! And another one that will go very fast. After the Sheridan Rec District Easter Egg Hunt at 10 am, plan on bringing your pooch to Madia Field (located just west of Thorne-Rider Park) for the 3rd Annual Easter Egg Huntin’ with the Pooch event. Dog and owner will explore and locate eggs filled with dog treats, or discover tennis balls just the right size for fetching! Dogs will need to stay on a leash and, if the pooch has an accident, clean-up is your responsibility (doggie poop bags will be available). The Easter Egg Bunny will probably not show up, because bunnies generally get a little nervous around dogs. Co-sponsor is Sheridan Media. For more information, call the Sheridan Recreation District, (307) 674-6421.
