Here in Waco we are really looking forward to the cooler weather and fall events. October brings the Heart of Texas Fair and Rodeo and one of our most favorite times…HALLOWEEN!
Dogtopia will be out at the fair with a booth in the exhibits building, so be sure to stop by and say hello. While the fair is going on we will certainly have a few Wild Wild West days and Rodeo specials happening at Dogtopia.
Then the week of Halloween we will be having Tricks for Treats Week! Last year we enjoyed the costume contest so much that we’ve been waiting and planning all year for it! If you haven’t started working on your costume and pictures to enter the contest…what are you waiting for?! Last year Waco’s entry Monkey as the Grinch went on to win the Dogtopia National Costume Contest so we are expecting great entries this year as well!
