Almost 270 dogs and their 500 owners showed up at the Cleveland Indians game last night as the Tribe held its first Puppypalooza bring-your-dog-to-the-game event. Wally threw out the first pitch, we paraded around the field before the game, and we had a great response from the fans. Were you there? Leave us a comment.
We're a bit beyond the dog days of summer, but not at Progressive Field. As part of the Cleveland Indians' Puppypalooza -- where a dog-owner can bring his or her canine to the game Thursday, August 26 -- our PUP program will take center stage when our own Wally Waterdrop will throw out the first pitch. Might be tough to toe the rubber with no toes, though.
Kids. Dogs. "Awww!" factor. We were going for it all in our latest PUP program spot. Let us know if we hit the mark.
We don't typically allow dogs on our facility grounds unless (1) they are official guide dogs, or (2) they are official spokesdogs for Sewer District programs. At our Open House at the Easterly Wastewater Treatment Plant August 7, we had the latter.
Zack and Harley (below) and Smokey, three of our employees' dogs, donned their PUP-pledge bandanna and got along very nicely with our 300+ guests.
Wally Waterdrop and his dog Pup represent the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's Pick Up Poop campaign to help the environment (and hey, promote politeness, too).
