Summer Fun for Dogs and Their Humans at "Wine, Washes & Wagging Tails"

Summer Fun for Dogs and Their Humans! is the theme for the third annual “Wine, Washes & Wagging Tails” event sponsored by TallGrass Aveda Spa and Salon in Evergreen, Colorado. The frisky soap suds and wine sipping event is scheduled for Sunday, July 21, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the drive-thru of Evergreen National Bank on Hwy 74, in downtown Evergreen.


“I don’t know if it’s more fun for the volunteer washers or the folks who come just to watch,” says TallGrass owner Gail Ridings. “And, the dogs love it, too!”


A $20 ticket is good for one wash by volunteers for a dog and one glass of wine from Creekside Cellars for the dog’s owner. All proceeds benefit Evergreen Animal Protective League, an all-volunteer organization that aids lost and abandoned animals in need of forever homes.


New to this year’s festivities is Buddy Bites, a doggie ice cream truck, serving bone-shaped frozen treats, “pupsicles” on rawhide sticks and snow cones with “Muttsturd” toppings. “Everything’s healthy for the dogs,” says Buddy Bites owner Deanna Kwak, talking about the treats that are non-dairy, turkey-based and contain omega 3s, probiotics and glucosomine. 


In addition to TallGrass Aveda Spa and Salon, event sponsors are Evergreen National Bank and Creekside Cellars. For more information, please contact Denise Robert Marketing at 303-368-5208.
