On a beautiful, crisp Oct. 23 afternoon, over 70 dogs and their family members, who are members of the Central Mass. Corgi Club, attended the second annual Corgi Spookfest held at the Southborough farm owned by Andy and Terry Holland. Guests came from as far away as western Mass. and Connecticut to attend the party.
Dogs (and a few of their owners) dressed in costumes and participated in a parade. Sea-Jay Photography was on hand to take photos of the dogs with Santa (aka the Hollands’ son, Jonathan). Vendors were also on site selling various dog-related items and guests could buy tickets for a raffle. Lunch was provided by Deanna Sullivan and Fox Run Farm.
Games were also set up for the pups to play, which combined with the fresh air and constant stimulation, ensured there were lots of tired Corgis sleeping on the way back to their homes.
A portion of the profits from the day’s events will be donated to the Mayflower Rescue Group (www.mayflowercorgiclub.org), which helps to place surrendered Corgis into new homes.
