I hope I will get to see you this coming weekend at Millbrook Exchange Park, 1905 Spring Forest Road. It is the 19th Annual Bark Around the Park event Saturday April 26th 11 am to 3 pm. It is a lot of fun for the entire family. Including your 4 legged family members. You will see dog tricks, vendor booths, and Wake County Animal Care, Control and Adoption will be offering on site rabies vaccinations for $5.00 and micro-chipping for $10.00 beginning at 11am. There will be a lot of vendor booths where you can see the latest in pet care and pet spoiling. Something I know all dog lovers can do very well.
Our office, Linda Craft and Team, REALTORS are one of the major sponsors every year. This year we have invited Stormy from the Carolina Hurricanes to be at our booth. We are also hosting 3 dog bone hunts where we will be giving out over 600 dog bones; setting up a DJ in the back of our moving van (in case of rain) and you can register at our booth for two Carolina Hurricane tickets in the Lexus Champions Club. The tickets include dinner and four drink vouchers. Our tent is the first one on the right as you enter the event. I hope you will stop by to say hello, register for the tickets and meet my two precious dogs Bandit and Katie.
Bandit is a 5 year old Shitzu and Katie is a rescue dog. We think she is around 13 years old. Katie is a Pitt Bull Staffordshire Terrier mix. She is as sweet as can be. Don’t let the Pitt Bull part scare you. Katie’s tail wags so hard her whole body wiggles. Years ago Katie was found eating out of garbage cans in Baltimore. She was skin and bones and very sick. Someone took her to a vet and had x-rays done. They found a bullet in her back hip and she also has a tattoo where she had been in the pound. Now she lives like a princess at my house. She gets groomed every week and has her toenails painted hot pink to match her bandana. Her bed came from Dogmopolitan (an animal print chase sofa just her size) Bandit was born in Smithfield, NC and he moved into my house as a puppy. I named him Bandit because one look at him and I knew he would steel my heart, take up my time and rob my bank account. He has lived up to his name because he has stolen my heart. I could tell you lots of Bandit stories but, I will save them for another time. I am sure if you are a dog lover like me, you have your own stories to tell. Please share them so people reading this blog will not think I am some sort of nut. Only dog lovers can relate and understand why a 53 year old successful business woman would spend time writing about how wonderful her dogs are. Help! Support me in telling the world how great it is to have a dog in their life.
Make it a great day!
