Methow Trails hosted the Doggie Dash at the Town Trailhead in Winthrop on Sunday and despite cold temps and a bitterly cold wind, many people and dogs showed up to participate and to watch one of winter’s most fun events in the Methow. The Doggie Dash is a six-legged race with people on skis connected to their dogs with a leash or rope. It is also a costume contest. There were three different races – the kids’ race, the adults with little dogs race and the adults with big dogs. There were enough big dogs for two heats. Afterwards judges awarded prizes for the costume contest including the much coveted Golden Poodle. And at the end there was a drawing for a season pass to Methow Trails for next winter. Roman Toga guy was very excited to take that away with him.
Some of the sponsors included Rocking Horse Bakery, Winthrop Veterinary Clinic, the Methow Valley Ciderhouse and of course, Methow Trails. Thanks to all of them and the volunteers that make this event so much fun!
