And contests galore--best summer attire, best in shades, coolest canine couple, coolest dude, coolest gal, human/canine look-alikes, oldest dog, farthest travel, goofiest dog, and most inspirational story. There is something exciting for everyone at the 14th annual Summer Scoop and Reunion.

Paw print painting. Preserve your old pooch's paw in non-toxic, washable paint. Get a print of your best friend's paw print suitable for framing.
Old Dog Olympics: An agility course paced just right for old dogs. Your old dog can wander through the tunnel; jump the hurdles, or stroll through the weave poles. The Old Dog Olympics are a popular part of the Summer Scoop! every old dog is a winner and will receive a gold medal for participating!
Relax in the shade and enjoy a scoop of ice cream from Mr. i-See's ice cream truck: For the dogs (and people) who just like to relax, there are lots of shade trees and a large, cool shelter with plenty of picnic tables and refreshments. As always, admission and parking are free.
Bring your friendly old dogs (age 7 and older) and join in the fun.
Best of all, you'll spend the afternoon with other people who know that old dogs are the greatest friends imaginable. Show off your old pal and enjoy the old dog party of the year. The Oak Grove Pavilion is just off of Valley Parkway, in the Brecksville Reservation, between Chippewa Creek Drive and Meadows Drive in Brecksville.
