Dogs Night Out

Tonight the town of Bellport had a fun event called "Dogs Night Out." There was a parade of pooches along South Country Rd that were available for adoption. The businesses were having raffles and auctions to benefit the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and help raise awareness for Clear the Shelters Day on Saturday when free adoptions will be available. In addition I think everyone from Bellport came into town with their own dog/dogs all primped and fluffed to visit all their neighbors. Outside the Paper Cup Studio where my sketches are on display several of us sat and tried to sketch some of the pooches. They move around a LOT!!!

I finally gave up and did one dog with several people who were waiting for the pooch parade to start.


  1. What a fun event and so cool that you captured it! I love the blue striped dress!

  2. Raising awareness for shelter dogs is such a wonderful benefit.... These sketches are excellent.... I have a shelter dog that was 2 years old.... Now she is 4 and I love her even more!! Love this post, Joan!!

  3. I have a wonderful idea of the day from your sketches! Lovely colors in the final one. It must be fun for the dogs too!

  4. It was a fun event. Thanks Sherry!

    Hilda, thanks. The parade of dogs were in cars driving down the road.

    Celia, thank you. The dogs were having as much fun as the people.
