It's a special exhibit dedicated to our love of dogs and the historic legacy of famous canines like Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Toto from The Wizard of Oz.  You can learn about Presidential Pups, Pup Culture, make crafts in the Canine Craft Area and take the challenge at the Breeds of the World interactive matching game.  There's also a Dog-gone Scavenger Hunt where you can search and discover more than 60 life-sized stuffed dogs.

"The entire museum, starting on Memorial Day, we're going to open it on that day with a whole new exhibit and we're inviting the whole community to come in and celebrate dogs, there's all kinds of hands-on activities," said Bart Williams, EarlyWorks Executive Director.

Along with the new exhibit, each week in June and July, special dog guests will be at EarlyWorks.  These visits will take place every Saturday.  You just might meet Scooby Doo, McGruff the Crime Dog, Sparky the Fire Dog or even the dogs from the TV show Paw Patrol!  EarlyWorks' mascot "Biscuit" will also make appearances each day. Come give him a big hug and take your picture with him.
