Staff and volunteers of the Elmbrook Humane Society will be blogging about what's going on at the society, as well as other observations about life in Wisconsin.
The mission of the Elmbrook Humane Society is to promote the human-animal bond through adoption and education, to provide shelter to homeless animals, and to prevent animal cruelty and neglect. EBHS services the city of Brookfield, the villages of Butler, Chenequa, Elm Grove and Nashotah, and the towns of Brookfield and Delafield. EBHS shelters unwanted pets and strays, and rescues injured domestic animals and wildlife, provides resources for individuals with companion animals and provides Humane Education to schools and civic groups.

Everyone's happy when Friday comes - even dogs! Come enjoy a Yappy Hour with your best friend(s) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, July 9, at Elmbrook Humane Society.
This Yappy Hour will have a tropical theme, so wear your grass skirts and come ready to kick back! There will be a DJ to play music, as well as lure coursing and play areas to help burn off your dog's extra energy. Once they've taken the edge off, relax and have some human treats--wine and snacks--and dog treats--water, puptinis (a yummy liver juice cocktail your dog is sure to love), and dog treats. Catch up with old friends and meet new ones!
The last TDIF was a hit with dogs and people alike. My favorite part was watching dogs figure out the lure coursing. If you've never heard of it, lure coursing is when a lure (in this case, a white plastic grocery bag) is attached to a string and zoomed along the ground at high speeds. Dogs LOVE to chase it. At least, most dogs love to chase it. The experienced dogs needed no urging or coaching and took off as soon as their collars were released. New initiates were at first a little confused. Some caught on quickly and took off after it like it was a rabbit on the loose.
Talk about pure, undiluted dog joy! Now that's something we can all use a little more of, especially to kick off our weekends. Come join us July 9 and let your dog have a try at lure coursing. Your dog will thank you.
