Blue skies overhead and blueberries in our markets can only mean one thing–summer is here, and with it, the Fremont Fair. The annual event, held the weekend of June 17-18, promises fun for humans and dogs alike with a variety of activities and scheduled events sponsored by Just Right® by Purina® personalized dog food.

Here are just four of the many activities you and your four-legged friends can enjoy at the fair:

Strut your stuff at the Dog Parade

Remember all those partner costume ideas you had on November 1, just after Halloween? Now is the time to bring one of them to life for you and your dog. Just Right by Purina is sponsoring the Dog Parade this year, which takes place on Sunday, June 18, at 2:30pm. So dress up as Han Solo with your labradoodle-turned-Chewbacca by your side, and show Seattleites that any day is a good day to wear an awesome costume with your pup.

Transform your dog into a caricature

Just Right by Purina’s booth at the fair features a big teal doghouse filled with activities for dog owners and their dogs, including the chance to transform your pup into a caricature.

Four-legged guests can get a custom digital caricature created on the spot that captures all the quirks that makes him unique. These sharable caricatures will be developed by artists and available to everyone who visits the big teal doghouse.

Capture your essence in GIF form

If you’d rather pose with your pup, attendees will have the chance to capture their essence in a GIF. Simply walk into the GIF photo booth featuring a life-size bag of Just Right by Purina brand dog food, and walk out with a sharable GIF you can immediately send to friends and family.

Create a personalized blend of dog food

At the booth, dog owners are invited to speak with a Just Right by Purina veterinarian about their pup and get their burning questions answered. While you’re there, you can share even more about your dog by creating his own personalized blend of Just Right by Purina food.

No one knows your dog better than you do, and providing this firsthand knowledge of your pup’s age, weight, activity level, skin and coat health, protein preferences, and more will help Just Right by Purina create the ideal blend of food to suit his unique nutritional needs. In addition to fun giveaways for the humans, Just Right is also handing out coupons so your pup can try a complimentary bag of Just Right by Purina personalized dog food while supplies last.

“I had cassette tapes and workbooks, but it was hard because I was living in Washington, and my tribal language has roots in Wisconsin,” Sky Hopinka says. Learning alone, he could listen to prerecorded Hocak phrases and practice writing letters and words, but an essential component was missing — another person to speak with. Photo
