Woofstock 2009

Woofstock 2009

I thought I would start a thread for anyone interested in stopping by the Woofstockk festival in Toronto this June. It is on June 13, 14 in the St Lawrence Market area of Toronto.

Its a great time and many people from last year could tell ya all about it. Along with the Woofstock festival it is combined with an event called the Rescue Me Walkathon. This walkathon is a critical part of many rescues ability to continue rescuing animals in need.

There are many many rescues particpating from all types of breeds. I encourage anyone that would like to join in the walkathon to take a look at a group that they may be able to help raise some money for.

I will be walking for the German Shepherd Rescue Toronto so if anyone is interested in that group they can let me know. Shortly on the website there will be pledge forms available for people to download if they would like to participate in that. Other than that it is a great day and lots of fun. I have never seen so many doggies in my life.

Maybe a few folks could get together and come down for a visit (like those Montreal'rs!! Marko can you drive the bus this year?

I would love to participate since many of my rescue contacts are there. I would love to see them once again as everything is done over the wire. Please count me in...

Thanks so much.

Do you know if the German Shepherd rescue is looking for volunteers? If they are, please pm me with their info.. thanks

Winston
April 1st, 2009, 12:11 PM
Yes we are! If you are interested you could send an email to info@gsrt.net. We can always use volunteers to help out! If you need any other info please feel free to PM Sylvie or me (Winston) and we can look into it for you. Their website is www.gsrt.net.

I think this year we'll be checking out Woofstock with Skylar. Last year we had just got her and she was quite the handful so we didn't bother going.

Winston
April 1st, 2009, 04:08 PM
Awe Stacer I cant wait to meet Skylar! To see how far she has come is going to be sooo wonderful! Is she good with other doggies? cause theres an awful lot of doggies there!

Chaser

I will be there to volunteer at the GSRT booth :thumbs up - not sure which day though. Will need to co-ordinate with Winston and Sylvie.

Kailey will not be attending...she's doing better but would be absolutely terrified of all that chaos. I don't think she'll ever be able to handle a situation like that. I'm up in the air on bringing Chase. He loves everyone and everything....but so much he can hardly contain himself and may be a royal pain in the @$$ and not settle for me. :shrug:

Winston - I will sponsor you for the walkathon. Will talk once you have more details and I see you next.

Winston
April 1st, 2009, 07:43 PM
Thanks so much! and we do appreciate the help! its a busy 2 days!! I felt the same way about bringing Winston! ask Sylvie ! but he has been awesome both times! he certainly is different when he goes almost as if its a bit overwhelming to see so many people and dogs but once he was there and had a good sniff around he was great! I am hoping the pledge forms are available soon so that we have some time to get sponsers!

Youll have a blast! its a fun filled day of DOGGIES!! of all kinds...:thumbs up

It was so much fun last year with alsan,grace,meg and peaches and her friend, marko and meeting you and winston and angeldog
so many dogs and people!!!!!!

I wish I could make it this year :sad: but sadly i won't be able to..:sad::sad:

I'm hoping Ethel will trundle down there with me this year. I was suppose to go last year but my friends son took ill and had to go to the clinic.

We won't be bringing any of the dogs though, the Bassets will want to smell everything and everybody, Iggy is being a bit naughty with other dogs right now and is going back to school and Cocoa is just too old for a long day, come to think of it maybe I am too :laughing:

muggsmom
April 2nd, 2009, 11:01 AM
I've never been, but I would love to go! If I can make it, I definitely won't be bringing Muggs. Leash aggression + thousands of dogs = BIG TROUBLE!

MommaKat
April 2nd, 2009, 11:41 AM
I would love to go but I live fairly far away. We don't have anything like that where I am, so it would be so much fun. I wonder if Hubby would let just me and the Puppy go, Maggie probably couldn't go because she hates going anywhere in the summer, but I think Sparks could handle it . Hmm , I will let you know :D .

Mat&Murph
April 2nd, 2009, 02:52 PM
Sounds like alot of fun!!!!! The boys would love it!!! Mybe if it is not too hot for them

LooneyBoone
April 2nd, 2009, 03:16 PM
I've never been to it before but it has always sounded like fun.

If I do go I doubt I'll bring Boone, I think all of that would completely freak him out. Unless he gets a bit better wth his fear aggression anyways or I decide to buy him a muzzle and attempt to make it as positive as possible for him as well as get him some socialzation which is what I was told to do. So it'll probably just be Drifter.

She's a bit leash aggressive, but she seems to get desensitized pretty quickly when there's alot going on. We figure we'll bring her down and if it's not working out we'll just go for a nice walk somewhere and visit some friends.

Winston
April 2nd, 2009, 06:22 PM
I think for the most part it is probably a bit overwhelming for most dogs cause there are so many doggies and so much to sniff! The great thing is if its hot they will have water bowls everywhere, along with wash down stations for doggies. Last year it was so humid that they were walking around with hoses to ensure no doggies were overheated! :thumbs up The set is really done well and everyone gets along!

Anyone that was there last year want to take a guess at how many doggies there were?

angeldogs
April 2nd, 2009, 08:54 PM
Were hoping to go again this year.not sure if we will take the dogs.jag has is vest so we might take him if we go.if it's to hot we will leave ginger at home in the a/c

Hehe I was going to Bump it today too. I found out some good news and Blah news. Hubby and I will be in Toronto just before Woofstock but I think we're heading home the day of or the Day after it starts :sad:

Anyways the good news is we will be in Toronto so if anyone wants to meet up or :lightbulb: maybe, for those of you who are doing booths I could drop off a donation for your organization somewhere or help out somehow? Just let me know here or PM me if there is a way I could help out :shrug::D

Winston
May 6th, 2009, 06:38 PM
MommaKat I will be at the German Shepherd Rescue Toronto Booth on both days so come on by! Depending on when your coming by you may be able to meet my boy Winston too! I bring him the day of the walkathon so we can raise money for the rescue! I think he enjoys it to with all the doggies and smells around! :D I hope some of the Montreal crew will be coming down for a visit again that would be awesome!

I tried to get Marko to drive a big a$# bus down but not sure if he is willing! :D


They sell lots of dog and cats stuff! I always get my clippers there and some of the stuff they sell is really neat! Its like a mini exhibition for pets!

Its a great day and lets hope the weather is good! Last year sure was a HOT one! :thumbs up

Hope to see you there!

And for those of us too far away to attend, I hope you're all bringing cameras again this year :fingerscr

:D

JennieV
May 7th, 2009, 12:19 PM
It sounds like a blast and I will do all I can to attend. The problem is that if I am going alone, I will not be driving, and if I am not driving - I will not be bringing Sparky..He would be great, its just the travel part.

Soooo...right now, I am trying to convince hubby to drive down..LOL

Other idea would be if any MTL members wish to go, we could all pitch in and rent a bigger vehicle. More drivers - easier. We could leave Friday evening, come back Sunday evening. We could pick up people on the way, if need be (L4H??) Just throwing it out there.

Winston, how is the parking situation at the event?

Anyways, right now, I cannot commit, but hoping to be there!

Stacer
May 7th, 2009, 06:32 PM
St. Lawrence Market is right down town Toronto, so you'll more than likely have to find a Green P parking lot, or if you're lucky you might be able to find some free street parking (unlikely though)

here's a link to a map of the area including pay parking lots. http://www.woofstock.ca/ini.html

SolaMio
May 7th, 2009, 06:46 PM
Sooo jealous of those of you going :D

I live in NS which is a bit too far to travel, but also I'm not sure how Sola and Luna would do with so many dogs on leash, they both have some leash aggression issues we are dealing with. As someone already mentioned, leash aggression and so many dogs... Not great for us unfortunately. :rolleyes:

Have fun though!!! :thumbs up

Chaser

May 26th, 2009, 09:12 AM
I checked with Ethel yesterday and her and the b/f are going, not sure which day though, weather will help with that decision.

I told them I was tagging along, that I will go my merry way when we get there, her response "why, are you going to see some of your cronies from pets" :laughing:.....That's my plan :clown:

Winston
May 26th, 2009, 09:17 AM
Thats too funny Chris cause alot of us are just youngins! :D

Is she bring Izzy?

Chris21711
May 26th, 2009, 09:24 AM
Thats too funny Chris cause alot of us are just youngins! :D

Hey, you saying I'm not :laughing:.....j/k

Is she bring Iggy?

She would like to, but he is going through a phase (we hope) of being a bit snappy with other dogs, she would have to muzzle him....

I would like to take one of the Bassets', but I'm not sure about that, I think Reb would be befuddled (it doesn't take much) and Skip would probably love it, but he can be a bit of a handful when he gets excited and is really strong on a harness.

Masha
May 26th, 2009, 09:47 AM
I will be at the GSRT booth both days. It will be nice to meet some people from pets.ca :)

For those of you that have already done this last year, what were your days like (what did you spend the day doing at the booth....) ?

Winston
May 26th, 2009, 10:21 AM
Hey Masha! thats so great! I cant wait to meet up with ya!

basically the point of Woofstock for us is to raise some needed funds for the rescue animals BUT the biggest thing is the get the GSRT name out there and to as many people as possible. We are always in need of fosters or adopters!

we do have quite a few people who come with general GSD questions! we have a few people that come with training questions!

we hand out information about the group..

generally its a great day and lots of doggies to see!

it also gives Sylvie and I a break because we end up doing both days at the booth and they are long days! basically 6am to 6pm...

:thumbs up

Chaser
May 26th, 2009, 10:27 AM
Looking forward to meeting you there Masha! Sounds like we'll be relieving Winston and Sylvie together :thumbs up

Even though I can't actually bring her I'll have to bring some of my cutest pics of Kailey.....maybe telling her story will break a few hearts and sway some people into considering foster or adoption! It will be neat to tell people about our experience of rescuing her and all the amazing help we got from GSRT. :)

Winston
May 26th, 2009, 10:48 AM
Chasesmom! awesome idea! BEFORE AND AFTER pics would be great to show! Especially since your girl has come sooo far!

Chasesmom if you cant bring your guys you could complete a pledge sheet and Winston could walk for you on behalf of Kailey!!! :D

masha will you be bringing that gorgeous doggy in your avatar? Jermy right?

Masha
May 26th, 2009, 11:16 AM
Jermy will have to stay home this time... We are working with him on getting him comfotable with all doggies, but he is not quite there yet... there are still dogs that get him going, but maybe next year he will be all ready :)

Chaser
May 26th, 2009, 11:25 AM

I can definately do that - maybe her story will inspire some people. :)

Chasesmom if you cant bring your guys you could complete a pledge sheet and Winston could walk for you on behalf of Kailey!!! :D

This year we are just planning on giving you and Winston a pledge, with the goal of Chase doing the walk on behalf of Kailey next year (maybe at age 3 he'll be a little less excitable....hopefully!)

Is there a deadline for donations???? We'll have to connect if you need it before June 14th.

aslan
May 26th, 2009, 02:10 PM
So are we making arrangements again this year to meet up somewhere or are we just gonna stalk the others at the GSRT booth. Probably end up there anyway, with or without the fuzzbutts. Start really bugging the Montreal crowd now to come out and play.

I'll be there with Winston and Sylvie all day on the Sunday....don't know exactly what times I'll be at the booth, but I expect to spend the better part of the day there, aside from bathroom breaks and buying presents for my puppers. I'm sure we'll manage to meet :)

We are hoping to ge the same spot as last year! Its got a bit of shade and its right near the johnny on the spots! (tons of them so no one worry! and they have sinks in them!)

Maybe once we know who all will be there as we get closer to the date then narrow down a spot to meet!

Angeldogs are you coming again this year! cant wait to give Jag a big kiss!

Okay I gotta figure out a way to get the Montrealers in on this one? Aslan did you say Benmax had a big van? :D

But Chico2 could bring Bailey with her instead of the kitties. As for BM nope no mr.BM.

King
May 26th, 2009, 05:46 PM
I am soooo looking forward to this. I just registered for the walk hopefully my friends and family will pull through for me. I wanted to do this last year but King wasen't ready yet he was to young but I think he can do it now.

Winston
May 26th, 2009, 07:53 PM
Thats Awesome King! the doggies really have a blast! The water fountain is the biggest hit it seems! One big water fountain and lots of doggies jumping around and having a grand ole time!

Lots to see!, lots of good food! some really great gift ideas and neat things to buy! OMG doggie clothes! well theres tons! lots of samples. Oh some nice collars and leash's pretty much everything doggie! I always buy a new set of clippers when I am there.

How long have you been waiting to hear from them Aslan, Ethel told me this morning that they are really busy....but I think they should at least contact peeps.

my first call to them was right before i went to FG's in january, i called again when i got home from LP's the first time, soooo late April and DM called for me a couple weeks ago thinking they had an issue with longdistance and DM was gonna do a 3 way call, still nothing. The one here, you can't even leave a message as the machine is always full. Anywhere else we're getting quotes well over $500. because hims is a big boy.

I think saturday is the day DH, Skylar and I are planning to go. Where is Winston's booth going to be located?

Winston
June 6th, 2009, 02:18 PM
SXtacer were you at Woofstock last year? If so we are trying to get the same spot as last year! Depends on who gets there first!

If I remember correctly we were on the corner of Scott Street? does that sound familier? by the designated entrance? there was a timmies right there!

hope this helps

hey meg, sounds like most of us are going on saturday. How bout the booth Winstorn and sylvie and that are manning. might be a good place to meet. or do you have another idea.

and of course you have to make cookies, i didn't get any last time.

That's because a certian someone ate them all :rolleyes:

That sounds good! It will be chaotic down there so that spot is as best as any! Looks like I'm also dogsitting Indie that weekend so I can probably bring her along! yay! She gets a little anxious downtown sometimes so I'll see how she is on our walks and then decide!

Boo....I can only come on Sunday so I think I'll be missing most of the pets.ca members :sad:

DH-to-be is volunteering his paramedic services at a racetrack all day Saturday so I need to be home with the puppers.

Winston
June 7th, 2009, 07:38 PM

King
June 8th, 2009, 04:51 AM
I am soo looking forward to this I downloaded the pledge form and got a few pledges from co-workers I am surprised they did most of them are scrugges involves no food for them lol. Anyways I would love to come both days but can only afford one and that is Sunday for the walk, I do hope King holds up okay I know he can do the walk, I just don't want to scare him I am sure he will do fine he is scared at first then wants to go and see everyone including other dogs then when a dog does come over he lays down.

Winston
June 11th, 2009, 03:26 PM
Marko are you coming this year?

King there are thousands of doggies so your guy will be laying down all day! :D Dont worry I always thought Winston would be a goof and so far he has been a really good boy!

See you there!

Sylvie
June 11th, 2009, 03:43 PM
Hey, looking forward to meeting everyone this weekend. I will be the old gal with all the young chicks working around me. :laughing::laughing:

We are hoping to get the same corner as last year but it all depends on who gets there first! last year I think we lucked out! But youll find us we have to be there long before people arrive. I dont remember the name of the street corner we were closest too but I think it was Scott Street...theres a Timmies right there!:thumbs up

Hey guys - I am new here, just joined today.

I know this might sound stupid, since I know it is a dog festival.. but has anyone noticed if any cat toys/treats/collars are at some of the booths as well? I may go because I live nearby and love dogs, but I'm curious to see if I could pick anything up for my kittens while I'm there!

aslan
June 12th, 2009, 03:09 PM
As i recall there were some booths with kitty stuff and foods last year.

Ok, M&M will be getting downtown around noon, i will probably be down there well before that. Anyone want my cell number pm me and i'll give it to you.Hard to say to meet at Winston's booth when we don't know where exactly it is yet.

Sylvie
June 12th, 2009, 04:15 PM
Hey Aslan, we will be in the same area as last year,:thumbs up it is called Rescue Village. We will do our best to get the same spot,:pray: if not we will be close, so go ahead and make your arrangements. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

I am upset I have issues and the doctor put a cast on my hand along with two fingers not a finger splint, a cast. It hurts and very hard to drive I am debating cause I really really want to go waited a whole year for this have pledges for the walk tomorrow and everything, but don't know if I can handle driving to T.O. with one hand and turning corners and everything. I am trying to find someone to drive me to get my son at his fathers and can't even seem to find one for that and that is 3 hours there and back so I don't think I would be able to find anyone to come with me even if they drive my car. I really don't know what to do?

No worries Frenchy i have Quincy pics too, i think that's how M&M found us,headed right for the Qman, hmmm thats how Sylvie and masha found us too. OH OH Both guys were photoshot for the doggie magazine, crap can't think of the name.
flol, should have seen the black dane IN the fountain, then i coaxed Q in and promptly got soaked by a case of in water zoomies from the dane who thought we needed to play too.

aslan
June 14th, 2009, 09:38 AM
Oh just so you know, the pretty white Dogo wasn't being aggressive, he was being attacked by a nasty little dog.

And yup Frenchy they had a large Setter booth set up. The one pic the little lady was too busy trying to kiss me and Q so i kept getting extreme close ups.

It was great to meet Masha and Jermy, and Stacer and Skylar though! Such cute :dog:!

I had a great time volunteering and got to tell lots of people about GSRT and share Kailey's story. There were so many amazing dogs there, but I'm guilty of not taking any pictures :o I was busy at the booth, shopping for my pups and searching for bathrooms that didn't require a hazmat suit :yuck:

I got some gorgeous collars and lots of yummy treats for Kailey and Chase, so I will at least post pictures of them wearing their new collars when I get home from work tonight!

I was very disappointed too! I've never been to Woofstock before, always see pictures and stories about it. Last year I couldn't bring Nova because she was too young, this year I pulled my lower back muscle, been in pain for a few days now. Hopefully next year I'll be luckier!

Nova and Cody are disappointed that I didn't buy them anything new :rolleyes:

Stacer
June 15th, 2009, 04:10 PM
I can't believe how friggin busy Woofstock was!! I think next year we might do it without Skylar, we didn't really look at anything because we were paying attention to her, making sure there wouldn't be any problems being so close (often squished) to other dogs. I think we were more stressed out than she was, lol.

It was nice to meet all the ladies at the GSRT booth (Masha, Winston, Chase's mom, Sylvie) and put some faces to the screen names!

Sylvie

Great pictures!!! Where did this take place? in the CNE? Love all the pics of all those different dogs and the one of the chow wow wow, i know that's not how it's spelt...in the stroller with the sunglassers on was sooo cute! :laughing:

What was that big thing with foaming water in it..was that a dog bath too cool the dogs down that wanted to go in it? Or for the dogs to get a drink out of?

Gee, these are the times I miss living in Toronto! :yell:

Seriously, I would like to thank Masha, her sister, Chase_Mom and of course Winston (who would do anything for the animals) for everything they did to make the weekend so successful. :thumbs up

I am so glad that someone from pets.ca won the basket. I could not believe when I looked down at the list of names and saw Masha had guessed so close to the actual amount of cookies. I'm thinking when we left her in the GSRT tent ALONE that she emptied the jar and counted the cookies :laughing::laughing: I hope she shares all the goodies with her sisters dog. Once again thank you everyone that helped. Could not have done it without Winston and all of you.

It was a lot of fun, and both my sister and I are looking forward to coming out again next year (or winter woofstock if you will be participating). It was great meeting the pets.ca members and their doggies. Aslan’s Bailey is just too cute for words :cloud9: and Winston was hanging out with us at the booth making sure that we were never in short supply of doggy drool :laughing:

Hehe, Sylvie I did not count the cookies, promise, but I did have quite a bit of time to stare at the jar and come up with theories as to the best way to estimate…. And the goodies will definitely be shared with my sister and her Dobie (my sister already picked up the magnet claiming it was ‘too cute’) and my in-law’s brown lab (choco – they lurke on the board but don’t post much). I think Jermy’s ego may get a bit inflated if he would get the whole lot to himself :rolleyes:

Hey guys I have been MIA for a few days but also wanted to extend my sincere thanks to everyone that helped us this year!

It was great to meet some of the other pets.ca folks this year! M&M, Stacer, Masha, Chasesmom...its always lots of work for Sylvie and I so we were very pleased to have some help this year.

Sylvie and I do it for the dogs and that is what makes is such a great weekend! we did have quite a few people interested in fostering so hopefully they will come through for us! and also alot of people interested in volunteering to help! which is awesome!

Anyway I threw my photos into another album called Woofstock 2009 so that some of the dial uppers can see it too! but here is a pic of beautiful Skylar! doesnt she look super! and she was a beautiful girl! I am so blessed to have met her and to see how far she has come! KUDOS to Stacer! boy your doing something right! (sorry I take crummy pics)

Enjoy the pics folks and maybe next year we can add some more members to the visit!

Jim I dont think you should bring DU? way to many doggies for that! but we would all love to meet you so make sure you plan on coming. Its the same weekend every year!!

here is a link to the album...hopefully it works

wow, looks like a great time! Although I think I would be like Stacer, too worried about my dog to take it all in. Molly isn't used to crowds like that! :eek: and would probably get over-stimulated!
Nice to see so many Haltis in the crowd as well! :thumbs up

Great pics , I love the pic with the Newf :D:D ! Skylar,Bailey and Qman...Cuteness overload! I wish I could have gone :sad: . We were in Toronto with My in-laws, they are in Lions club and they went up for a Dog guides thing and invited us to come. We ended up really busy and then going home early :frustrated: .

However Hubby said we will try again next time :D .
