Various dog-related vendors will be on-hand offering treats, collars and even a dog washing station. There will be food from Telford Ruritan BBQ and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

A doughnut eating contest at noon will pit public safety officers against each other. Members of the Jonesborough Fire Department are eager to see if they can hold their title.

A contest will also be held for those in attendance, but space will be limited. For more info, visit Paws in Blue on Facebook or call Ruth Verhegge at 423-794-0237.
