Sorry, I don’t have a Pet Safety Saturday theme prepared this week. We have a lot going on and some fun upcoming pet events to get ready for. With the weather getting cooler, but hopefully not too cool, it is the perfect time for gatherings. If you live anywhere near Lawrence, Kansas come by and see us at these special events:
On Sunday, September 22nd, we will be at Crystal K9 from 12:00pm – 4:00pm. Crystal K9 is a doggie day care and pet grooming facility located at 3115 W. 6th street in Lawrence. The event is being held for Responsible Pet Owner’s Day and proceeds will be collected for the Lawrence Humane Society. I’m not sure of all the happenings at this event, but I’m sure it will be one where a lot of pet care information is shared. We will be there as a vendor. And there is likely to be a few fun activities.
On Thursday, September 26th, we will be at the Lawrence Humane Society from 5:00pm – 7:00pm. The Mutt Mixer is held every two months except in winter so this is the last Mutt Mixer event until next year. We didn’t make it to the previous Mutt Mixer event in July because we were in a car accident along the way. Let’s hope there is no rain on this event day and we have a safe drive this time around! There will be food and drinks at the Mutt Mixer. Bring your dog and have them run around with other dogs in the fenced in outdoor areas. It’s like a dog park social event with adoptable dogs as the focus. A few local vendors, including myself, will be there selling our pet wares.
On Sunday, October 6th, we will be at South Park in Downtown Lawrence from 10:00am – 3:00 pm for the Dogtoberfest event. This event is held every year in October and this is the 2nd year in a row where I have been on the committee to help organize the Dogtoberfest event (although admittedly I haven’t contributed as much effort as the other fantastic committee members). It is the third year in a row where I have had a vendor booth at the event. There will be a walk-a-fest, costume contest, disc dogs, agility dogs, vendors, food, and lots of adoptable dogs from various rescue groups from around town.
My Maya will be at all three of these events, but Pierson has to stay home. He does not get along well with other dogs. Maya can be a bit hard to handle at the beginning because she is so excited. But once her initial enthusiasm wears off, she is a perfect lady. She will most likely show off her Kurgo Go-Tech pet car harness. Or if the Sleepypod ClickIt has arrived, she will show off that one.
I know many of you reading this are probably not in the Lawrence, Kansas area. Don’t worry, though. I will share pictures!
