Fur-Eh! 2017

Thank you for being a part of something magical!

Dear Students of Dogwarts:

We wanted to thank you for attending Dogwarts this past semester. It was an honour and a privilege to host you!

As we bid a fond farewell to Dogwarts, Dogsmeade Village, our four amazing Houses and everything that made this year such a success, we wanted to pay special thanks to the following individuals who could not be at Fur-Eh! this year:

  • Latin Foxy for his tireless efforts on our 2017 website
  • Golden Lion Studio for writing an original composition for us as our theme music
  • mmmatches (Ringer) for creating our 2018 website

We also wanted to thank:

For your enjoyment, our 2017 Fur-Eh! Con Book (also known as “Dogwarts School Annual 2017”) is now available for you to download as a PDF.

Now before we apparate to Paws Vegas, we thought we’d give you some statistics & news:

  • We welcomed 734 students to Dogwarts during our semester.
  • 135 Fursuiters participated in the Fur-Eh! Parade including 2 vehicles, a trailer and over 200 people viewed the parade.
