Smithtown Doggie Day

It’s totally happening people.  Totally.  I can’t believe it.  And, I forgot to email myself the flier to post for you all, so to see the fun ad we made, go here and then scroll down to our October events.  Here’s the skinny…

It’s October 3rd, which is one day before the Feast of St. Francis, the blesser of animals.  I got the church across the street to agree to come one over and start our day with a blessing.  AND, announce in their bulletin that our blessing is the only blessing they are doing for the weekend, encouraging their parishioners to come on over.  BOOM.

Then we’ve got some lectures.  How to resuscitate your dog, how to properly brush your dog’s fur, a herding demo (yeah, we’ve got sheep), and maybe an agility demo.  We’re working on that.  We’ve got the town photographers doing a doggie photo booth.  I’ve got musical chairs with dogs as a game.  I’ve got a local artist whose written a kids book on dogs doing some readings.  I’ve got the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind coming.  I’ve got the Suffolk ASPCA coming.  I’ve got our local Smithtown Animal Shelter coming for adoptions.  I’ve got raffles….LB Johnson, Jones Natural Dog Chews,, Bark Box…all donors…THANK YOU!  I’ve got to circle back on my local pet store to reel them in again, we’ve lost touch.  I’ve got a Hot Dawg truck coming.

I AM PSYCHED.  What say you Blogville!  Get your butts out to Long Island October 3rd!

    If I lived within a hundred miles of you I would certainly be there and you could bet I would be dressed for the costume event and I could even have my own reader dog booth. We did that here for an event. Now about the $1.00 per paw that means four green papers ~ well worth your money. The last event we went to had a pet psychic reader boy was that fun. Lee was told I had absolutely nothing on my mind. The psychic had a lot she got from other dogs, or so she told their owners. Lee told me the psychic was wrong, it wasn’t that I had nothing on my mind ~ it was I had nothing in my mind or no mind at all.
    Thanks for being a friend

    O…M…D this event is going to be EPIC!! You guys must be SO proud of your momma! We’ve put in our request to fly over and join in the fun…mom says she and dada need to discuss it, something about frequent flyer miles and being spoiled.
