Yes I did go last year.

I had been asked to be part of the "Doggie Make Over". But things behind the scenes are run so poorly that the lady ended up booking two dogs on one day (instead of one dog each day). She didn't have the guts to tell me until after the other dog was on stage.

She did feel really bad about it that she gave me a doggie sofa (which funny enough matched my living room sofa). Gizmo LOVES his own sofa and acts like a king when he is sitting on it.

My mom and one of my aunts came with me last year and they had such a great time that my other aunt and I think my uncle from kingston are coming as well (and they don't even have dogs).

Last year I only made it on the day of the walkathon and didnt realise that it was set up the way it was! would have loved to look around myself at some of the booths but couldnt really. We were taking care of a booth and I we had dogs with us! This year I will probably go 1 day by myself and the second day with my dog! Have to let him do the walkathon!! Good way to raise money!

You know, I'm tempted. I'd love to get away by myself for the weekend. I just checked out the hotel rates in the area . I was hoping to avoid staying at my mother's .

Its one of those things that is a good way to spend a day or even a few hours...Its basically all pet stuff in booths.. that people sell..everything from foods, coats, clippers, health stuff,balls,toys you name it! All kinds of rescues are respresented. I loved it because there were so many dogs I was in doggy heaven and they had bowls set up everywhere for all the dogs to drink from...a bathing area for the dogs to keep them cool, really a good set up....

Winston enjoyed the walk! It was shorter than I expected but a great way to help raise some funds!

It wouldnt take you 2 days to do it but it is open for 2 days!

I'd probably take the train down and get some visiting done while I'm there. It would make a nice mini-vacation. About how many booths are there in all? I'd love to see a bunch of doggies all in one place too .

I have an air-mattress and a kitty who cuddles

Which hotels have you checked? They're advertising King Ed which is high-end but there are a lot of more affordable ones within walking distance of the area.

yes.....there wer many huge! dogs! I didnt really see many off leash! All types sizes shapes colors you name it! Thats were I saw a Cane Corso for the first time! He looked like he was at least 180 pounds! It is really alot of fun! As long as you control your dog your okay! Winston is sometimes a handful and this was an event I worried about! He was excellent! A little excited at the beginning but he tired out after awhile and just hung out!! He drooled all day! It grossed me out! he never really drools but OMG it was awful I had to walk around with paper towels! and funny thing too he wouldnt drink out of the water bowls around the area?? only his own!
I think Harley will be fine!

hey thanks for spreading the good word!! Hmmm let me think about advertising stuff.

But aside from that I totally think it will be fun and I'm going to try hard to make it. I'd love to meet more Pets.ca members and their 4 legged children in real life. Going to try and bring Carmy (wifey) and maybe drag some other family members as well. ..and of course I intend to bring a camera and take tons of pics!
