the old dog party of the year


SUMMER SCOOP 2016 will once again be at the Oak Grove Pavilion in the Brecksville Reservation within the Cleveland Metroparks. Come join us and party with your old friends and make some new friends. Oak Grove features a large covered pavilion and plenty of shade for fun rain or shine.

Prizes, contests, raffles, silent auction, treats, food, and games, including the Old Dog Olympics, sponsored this year by Fortunate Fido in Columbia Station. 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 16th annual Summer Scoop and Reunion.  Meet past WKYC meteorologist Bruce Kalinowski, a special supporter of old dogs, and the fabulous veterinarians at the Tremont Animal Clinic in the historic Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio.

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 host of vegan refreshments, including ice cream. 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.
