The dog days of sum­mer were cer­tainly at Castlemilk Park re­cently.

The park was hold­ing a dog­gie day, wel­com­ing all types of ca­nines to have a bark­ing good time.

Around 120 peo­ple turned up with their pets for an af­ter­noon of fun at the latest event in the sum­mer se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties be­ing or­gan­ised by Cas­sil­toun Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

Com­mu­nity wood­land of­fi­cer Richard Bolton was pleased at the turnout on the day, de­spite some bad weather ear­lier in the week.

He said: “It was a great wee day, and we had a good turnout, which came de­spite the bad weather we’d had, par­tic­u­larly the pre­vi­ous day.

“We re­ally wanted to en­cour­age peo­ple to be re­spon­si­ble in look­ing af­ter their dogs, and to have a bit of fun while they were do­ing it.

“There were a lot of dif­fer­ent breeds of dogs brought along on the day, which was good to see, and we gave out var­i­ous awards on the day .

“There was the dog with the wag­gi­est tail, leave the sausage, best res­cue dog, best dog that was be­ing looked af­ter by a child and lots of other ones.”

The next event at the park will come on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 5, when a fam­ily fun day will be held.

There will be sto­ry­telling, arts and crafts and ma­gi­cians, among other ac­tiv­i­ties and games on the day.

It’ll take place from noon through un­til 3.30pm. En­try free.
