Yappy Hour (Dogs Under 20 lbs!)

Yappy Hours are a Bar K tradition! Each week, we celebrate the diversity of the dog universe by honoring different breeds, categories of dogs, organizations . . . even different doggy personality types.

On Thursday, May 25, we're celebrating the small fries -- dogs under 20 lbs!! Even with small dog areas, these little ones can sometimes feel overlooked or intimidated at dog parks. So we're opening the Lab just for these little tykes! We won't have a scale at the front door . . . so use your best judgment! :) 

As always, this event will be free for Bar K Members. For non-Members, it will be $10 for the first pup, and $5 for each additional dog in your pack. Capacity in the Bar K Lab is limited to 50 people, so it will be first-come, first-served. The Bar K Lab is located at 515 Liberty Street in the West Bottoms.

Bring your pup to play, make new friends and help provide hope and inspiration to children with cancer.  This week's Furs Friday is a fundraiser for Camp Quality as well as a birthday party for Elliott, one of our favorite regulars.  All in all, a pretty good way to spend a Friday evening. 

One hundred percent of admission charges will be donated to Camp Quality.  Plus, we'll have a silent auction, raffle prized and more.  Camp Quality serves children with cancer and their families by providing year-round programs, experiences, and companionship, at no cost.
