June 7 is Seashore Trolley Dog Day

Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport has designated June 7, 2014 its Second Annual Seashore Trolley Dog Day. The Seashore Trolley Museum is dog friendly every day and its activities on June 7 will focus on making dogs and the people who love them very happy.

Special experiences for the day include a blessing of the dogs at 11 a.m., dog wash and dog manicure services from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and behavior and training tips by George Quinlan, owner of All About Dogs, at 1:45 p.m.

A special feature of the day, at 1 p.m., is a fashion show dubbed “Flaunting Fido on The Runway by the Railway.” Categories for which judges will award prizes are:

· Fashionista Dog.

· Best Coordinating Outfits, dog and owner.

· Most Adorable: the dog may not be glamorous, but is lookin’ loving and sweet.

· Best Railway Theme Outfit.

· Best Celebrity Look Alike: How much does your pooch resemble your favorite star?

Animal Welfare Society, Lucky Pup Rescue and Maine Search and Rescue Dogs are among the organizations attending, along with businesses providing dog-related products and services.
