Kick off the Dog Days of Summer early by joining us for LI-DOG’s 2nd Annual Pints-n-Paws ™ Luau!

You and your dog are invited to join us at a Pints-n-Paws ™ Luau, Sunday, June 11th, from noon until 4 p.m. for a day filled with music, prizes, contests, hamburgers/hot dogs, and the spirit of Luau fun at tropically-themed Off-Key Tikki Bar & Grill in Patchogue. This year we’ve added a Luau Photo Booth for fun photos of you and your pooch. We’ll have door prizes for our guests throughout the event and lots of raffle baskets generously donated by more than a dozen gracious sponsors who believe in our cause—more access to Long Island beaches, parks, and other places for us and our dogs!

ADMISSION TO LI-DOG’s 2nd Annual PINTS-N-PAWS™ LUAU:
$15 discounted advance tickets are available (see below). Please note: Advance ticket sales end Sat., June 10th at 6 p.m.
$20 admission at the door on the day of the event.

Click the “Buy Now” button below to purchase your Luau ticket. If you want more than one ticket, you can adjust the amount on the PayPal order site.       NOTE: The PayPal button has been commented out.

***Admission fee is per human (fur babies are free) and includes complimentary BBQ, free raffle ticket for door prizes, participation in contests, and unlimited drinks for Fido (only water since he’ll be DDD–designated dog driver!).

All proceeds benefit LI-DOG’s work to get more access to parks and beaches for Long Island dog owners and their dogs.

LUAU DOGGY-AND-PEOPLE CONTESTS!

Margaritaville ‘Doggy-and-Me’ Costume Contest
You and Fido need to channel Jimmy Buffet—Hawaiian shirts, leis, coconut bras, grass skirts—the surfboard is the limit for this contest where the winner is the best-dressed, luau-themed pet parent AND fur baby. Yes, you and your dog must BOTH be dressed in Jimmy Buffet attire to enter this contest.

Biggest Lap Dog
Do you have a big guy who thinks all 120 pounds of him is still comfy on your lap? Then this is the contest for you! Disclaimer: we will be taking lots of photos for the hilarity of a St. Bernard on someone’s lap…

Silliest Dog Trick
For those of us with rebel dogs who won’t be satisfied just ‘sitting’—what’s the funniest trick your dog can do? Enter this contest to show everyone what Fido has learned under your tutelage.

Admission fee includes participation in contests, but you’ll need to sign up to play once you’re there. Contests will take place on Off-Key Tikki’s stage and on the large patio by the water. Even if your fur baby isn’t competing, come watch and cheer on a friend!

RAFFLES ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT:
Raffle tickets for our sponsor’s baskets can be purchased during the event:

1 ticket for $2
3 tickets for $5
7 tickets for $10
Arms-length of tickets for $20

LI-DOG is pleased to announce it will be hosting its first Pack Walk™ of 2017 on Sunday March 26 – 12 Noon at Belmont Lake State Park, Exit 38N off the Southern State Pkwy.

So please join us at this beautiful NY State Park.

This LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Belmont Lake State Park will take approximately an hour as we leisurely walk the wooded trails and around the lake. The trails are flat and should be an easy walk for most people and dogs. The full walk will cover a little over two miles. A shorter opt-out path will cut the walk to about a mile. Feel free to hang out after the walk and make a day of it as Belmont Lake State Park has a lot to offer.

BASIC RULES:

• Dogs must remain on-leash at all times – No Exceptions!
• Dogs are not allowed in the picnic & play areas nor in any buildings.
• Bring water & poop bags to pick up after your companion!
• Keep your RSVP up-to-date. Space is limited to 130 people. All RSPV’s must be done on the LI-DOG Meetup Group.

PHOTO’S – There are many great photo-ops, so bring your camera and share your photos here on Meetup!
PARKING – The NYS parking fee of  $8 is waived during the month of March.
DONATIONS – Please note that we will not accept donations at this walk–park restrictions. If you would like to support LI-DOG and our Pack Walks, please go to the LI-DOG Website http://www.lidog.org/ and look for the yellow “Donate” button. Thank you for your support!
