I’m not sure who is more excited for PAWCHELLA, it might be my rescue dogs Cooper & Gypsy, but it’s probably me. Throughout the summer our Cooper Dog has been getting himself in trouble because he has started to chew some items around the house, it’s happening because he needs more stuff to do. It’s his boredom that is causing the issue so he is going to love the doggy splashpad party taking place in Tyler, Texas! 

My princess Gypsy will enjoy it too, but it’s Cooper that needs to get some of his energy out. We hope to see you and your pups at PAWCHELLA taking place on Saturday, August 20th from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at Fun Forest Pool Splashpad (900 N Glenwood Blvd). If you’ve never been to an event like this before it’s all about letting our furry family members have fun while they cool down by playing on the splashpad.
