An early-ish reminder for anyone interested. If you haven't been, the area is easily reached by TTC and there is lots of parking in behind St. Lawrence Market. Many people do bring their dawgz but it DOES get quite crowded and hot (if the weather co-operates :rolleyes: ) as the day progresses. It looks like an interesting and larger lineup of events and exhibitors this year.

And this is a very early reminder (for some of us, our lives revolve around our dawgs, we only like to THINK it's the other way around... :D )

Well, there's always Slobberfest...

Speaking of ...well, something else entirely...:laughing: I can't find the post where you and Byrd listed your competition dates and locations. I remember there was one in Toronto and I thought it was in early June ~ can you clue me in ?

Winston and I will be going!! Trying to raise lots of money!! Seems like it will be a good event....actually nice to see such a large percentage going directly to each charity rather than a large overhead expense!

That, was a LOT of fun!

It was also crazy busy, so many dogs in one place, very cool.

I am also extrememly proud of Dory. All those dogs, she got scared a couple of times when a dog came from the sid eand she didn't notice it beforehand, but I was so proud of her, she really has come a long way. I know this because there was barely any walking room, and she was awesome. I am gushing about her, sorry, I'm just so impressed with her.

So some details, I didn't have much spending money, so, i gave to Bullies in need, and a small breed rescue, and that was about it, there was some great deals, but I just couldn't spend the cash on it, I had to buy lunch for the kids.

Ooh, I won Dory a free grooming at a really nice downtown salon. She really needs it, poor dog, I trimmed her the other day and she needs it to be tidied because my clippers died.

She was in the ms and mr canine and the costume contest, though she didn't place in either. ( I think the mr and ms were fixed, :laughing: j/k but the judges were biased, openly). So oh well. It was fun anyways.

I haven't had a chance to look at the pics, will do and will try to get some up, hopefully it will happen.

Lots of fun, maybe I'll go back tomorrow. I'll be back to try posting the pics.

It was fun wasn't it ? I brought Declan down with me. Sadly none of my pix turned out (because I haven't read the manual for my camera yet. http://bestsmileys.com/doh/2.gif. I thinkk Winston and Phoenix were there as well but, I didn't see anybody !

If you spied a tallish "blonde" in black and beige walking a B & W dog who most people describe as "the biggest darn Border Collie" they've ever seen. That was me ! We spent quite a bit of time in the fountain :laughing:

Now hurry up and post your pix !!!

Yeah I was there! It was really good! Alot of dogs! Winston was such a good boy today! I am so proud of him.....I really think he has started to mellow out! He will be 8 soon!

Everyone said Winston was the biggest chocolate lab they had ever seen.....I think next time I will bring someone to doggie sit so I can spend some time at the booths!

okay, so I'm really sorry that the pics are taking such a long time, i'm having trouble with my mouse, so putting this together took more than a little work, I had to e-mail each picture to the newly created photobucket account, oh not to mention having to create a new outlook account because none of my e-mail accounts would let me us the enter button instead of a double click. :laughing:

So here they are, well some of them, I'm taking a break for now, it's very hot here.

How did I miss this after the photos started going up :eek: :D Great pics! Looks and sounds like a blast...

I'm trying to get into your pics now, papillonmama--not sure if I'll be successful--my connection keeps burping this morning! :mad:

Willard never hosts such cool events...:sad: course, Willard only has like fifteen people :laughing:

I think a pets.ca tee is a great idea! :thumbs up
