Christmas Season is Going to the Dogs
A holiday event for man’s best friend will take place
Sunday, November 23rd
at two Cooper-Young area restaurants
and on the grounds of First Congo Church
A Christmas market featuring gifts for pets and their people, including pet-themed works by local artists will open on the lawn at First Congo at 1:00PM. And, two restaurants, the Beauty Shop and *Do Sushi, will offer a special al fresco canine menu; which may be enjoyed by good dogs on the restaurants’ sidewalk patios, to the accompaniment of live Christmas music.
An indoor component of the event will kickoff at 2:00PM. For those who bring along a friend to stay outside and hold the leash, the event’s first Canine Christmas Cookie baking lessons will make their bow (wow!) in the Beauty Shop at 2:15PM and 3:15 PM. The Beauty Shop’s Karen Carrier and Dr. Kathy Mitchener will demonstrate recipes designed to help you share the spirit of the Holidays with your precious pup. Dr. Kathy will also share holistic holiday tips on good nutrition throughout the year, and conduct seminars on acupuncture, and other pain management therapies for dogs to make sure they are in shape to fully enjoy the holidays.
In addition to the art available in the outdoor Christmas Market, the event will feature an special exhibition inside Do and the Beauty Shop featuring works by renowned pet photographer Jack Kenner, as well as, a collection of paintings by Karen Carrier, entitled Dogs of Christmas Past.
Seize the Clay will offer visitors to the Christmas Market the opportunity to handcraft special Christmas ornaments for their dogs; and Good Dog Rescue and the Midsouth Greyhound Adoption Option, will be on hand to add some joy to the lives of those who have no dogs of their own for whom to make ornaments.
There will be massage therapy for dogs in the market area, and Santa will be also be on hand outside Do & the Beauty Shop to pose for pictures with your best friend (and accept donations to help bring some Christmas Cheer to their less fortunate brethren at Good Dog Rescue).
This first annual event is Sunday, November 23rd, from 1:00PM to 4:00PM, The Beauty Shop is located at 966 South Cooper, near Young, and is flanked on either side by *Do Sushi and First Congo.
