Balmy temperatures sent four-legged (51 registered dogs) and two-legged (43 registered walkers) out in number for the 7th annual, “just fur fun” Tails on the Trails Saturday. The day included unique pet tricks, a barn hunt demo (mice the prey), flyball racing and a pet lookalike contest. Participants learned of diabetic alert dogs, Good Canine Citizen Testing and field training. Nearly $4,000 in pledges were raised to fund the Headwaters Animal Shelter in Park Rapids.
