Woof-Woofstock

15 Jun

Everyone needs to get out of the city once in a while – including adoptable dogs! So, we packed up Paige and hopped on a train from Grand Central to Westchester where Ann picked us up. Of course, one pittie wasn’t enough, so we grabbed pretty Doris Day from Paws and Play and drove up Mahopac, NY where we found love, grooviness and lots of dogs! It was Woostock 2012!

The atmosphere was great…lots of tie-dye, well-behaved dogs and like-minded folks. There were dogs of every size, breed and age. Bully Project was lucky enough to be offered a spot in the “Pitbull Pride” section! What a great group of people – and dogs! We not only got to meet John Shipe of “Pitbull Blues” fame, we got to see him perform as well! The folks at Modified K9 are awesome and even rescued a pittie who was in bad shape from another rescue. Now that dog, renamed Clara, is off to a much better start with our friends Karen and Chelle at Modified.

Paige and Doris got to meet lots of folks and practiced some greeting skills. Since this was Doris’ first outing, she was more comfortable going on walks and checking out the scene while Paige hosted our pretty table! While on one of the walks, Doris fell upon two great ladies from Pirate Paws that make fresh treats, beef jerky and  dehydrated chicken breasts. Yum! We stocked up and plan to order some more soon! No need to buy this stuff from China when you can get some made right up in the Hudson Valley!

Of course, Woofstock had celebrities…The pittie-kind. We were so excited to watch disc dog demos by Kara and Erich of  Paw Stars. They started out with their typical border collies who surely won over the crowd. But the real star was Santiago, an alumni from Animal Farm Foundation. Although Santi has only been catching frisbees for a year or so, he is amazing. And, Kara and Erich always offer up Santi for meet and greets after the demos – he LOVES to say, “Hi.” What a great way to dispel myths. Another sighting in the crowd was a gorgeous fella named Danny Boy, another AFF alum, who likes to catch discs along with lots of other sports like agility.

It was a tiring day but so worth it! Take a look…

      We had a great day, and raised some money and more awareness.
