Rapids Fans Celebrate With Canine Friends at 'Dog Days of August' Event (Photos)

ColoradoRapids.com - Thanks to all the fans who took part in the Colorado Rapids' inaugural "Dog Days of August" event on Wednesday August 17 at the Rapids vs. Revolution match!

For the first time in the club's 10-year history the Rapids gave fans the chance to attend a home game with their dogs! The event was a complete success as the 150 available spots for the event sold out the day before the game!

Dogs and their owners each got free gift bags that included dog toys food bandanas treats bones and various other items as well as a free complimentary portrait of their dog in front of the Rapids backdrop by the Rapids team photographer! They also got the chance to be entertained with the various toys water pools and obstacle course in the Rapids Dog Zone as well as free samples from vendors and entertainment from the D.E.O. Speedwaggin' Flyball Team and the Colorado Disc Dogs!

Thanks to all the fans and dogs who attended; we look foward to seeing all dogs again for the next Dog Days event which will take place in August 2006!

Check out some of the photos from the event below including portraits and photos of the activities in the Dog Zone!
