SOOOOO much has happened since I posted about my Dog Day plans! We are a go for October 3rd from 12pm-4pm. If you are in the metro New York area with your pooch, save the date…
Our local pet store in Smithtown, Pet Supplies Plus, has sent off our sponsorship information to corporate. They are totally ready to hook us up with raffle prizes, sponsorship, and all out support. Woohoo. Miss Sydney at Chewy.com secured us a raffle basket, and Madi, and LB said they would donate items for raffle baskets too! I’ve reached out to Flea from Jones Natural Chews who is working on her people. We have two vendors for our vendor area, Scoochie Pet and a lovely woman who sells doggie charms locally.
I have a soft yes from other doggie groups in the area to join us, but I will save the details on those until I know more.
I have sent letters to every vet, groomer, and doggie place in town! There’s one trainer who is seriously thinking about doing some demos. We can’t wait! I am hoping to get a vet do some doggie health lectures too.
And I am sponsoring our event’s hydration station. We can’t have our doggies go thirsty while they are out there exploring the farm, now can we?
Now, we need some food don’t we? Long Island’s Hot Dawg Truck will be there. You think October will be too cold to get maybe an ice cream truck there? Maybe an icie place? What do you think? I’d like a dessert option there. I’ve reached out to a couple of places who make doggie ice cream, but they don’t want to take a chance on a first time event. Harmph.
So who am I missing? Is there anyone else from Blogville that I can reach out to? Let me know folks. I am so excited to see this come together!
