The day belonged to furry faces, wet noses and wagging tails.

Auburn’s Petpalooza – a festival for pets of all sizes and shapes – returned to Game Farm Park on a sun-kissed Saturday.

The 12th annual event offered live entertainment, animal-related fun, pet contests, flying and diving dogs, food and more than 160 vendors.

There also were reptiles, The Parrot Lady, the All-Alaskan Racing Pigs and new to the lineup, the North America Diving Dogs.

The day began with the Dog Trot, a fun run for pets and their owners. The “chip-timed” race started and finished in the park. Participants followed a 3K or 5K route over a flat, easy course, enjoyable for all ages and ability levels.
