A couple kind of dogs will be around this weekend.
There will be the kind represented by Nathans and Hebrew National that I will be grilling. There will be the dogs running around in the yard as I keep a close eye on the other dogs.
Then there are the EXTREME kind.
Yes, the Extreme Dock Dogs return for your greatest entertainment value at the Multnomah County Fair at Oaks Park this weekend.

They jump off docks into water while chasing toys. And if everything about that activity doesn't sound like the coolest thing in the universe to you, you may have problems.

The much-underrated MultCo fair has animal barns, food, county displays, duck races, Guitar Hero, the rides of Oaks Park and more. And - it's totally FREE parking and admission.

Foremost - we want to remember those who have served, sacrificed and gone before us on this holiday weekend. Here's a full list of Memorial Day events.
Added bonus - my pop's BBQ rib recipe
