2011 Celebration of Pets | Pet Pages

Big thanks to everyone who came out to the first annual Celebration of Pets event and stopped by my booth to say hi! We had a great time meeting so many wonderful pet loving people!

Also, I have to thank my adorable assistant, Derby, who did a fabulous job at his first big event. It was a really long, warm day for a 5 month old puppy, but he took his job very seriously and was more than happy to greet new friends and shower them with puppy kisses!

Here are just a few candid shots from the event, including some awesome rescue pups who have hopefully found their forever homes!

And now for the really fun announcement – I have a winner in my $200 gift certificate giveaway! I used to have Peyton draw a name out of a basket, but since there was always a risk that the paper wouldn’t be returned to me in one piece, I decided to use a random number generator this time. I’ll admit that it’s not nearly as fun, but at least it’s foolproof.

And the winner is…#29 – “J Summers”. Congratulations!

Thanks again to everyone involved (especially Pet Pages) in making this a really awesome day for Florida pet lovers . We’re already looking forward to next year’s event, which I hear is going to be even bigger and better!

Celebration of Pets!

My poor little blog here has been so neglected…between a few trips out of town and trying to keep my now 5 month old puppy entertained (quite the job!), I haven’t had much time for blogging. I hope to get back on track soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a very exciting event that is coming to the Sarasota fairgrounds next weekend.

My good friends over at Pet Pages are hosting their first annual Celebration of Pets! With close to 200 local and national pet friendly vendors (including yours truly), this is going to be one heck of a party. They have tons of fun stuff planned and I think it’s going to be a fabulous event! So mark your calendars – Saturday, February  26th – and make plans to join us! To learn more, please visit  Celebration of Pets 2011 online.

Please stop by and say hi – and just in case you need one more good reason to attend, there’s a good chance Derby pup will be making an appearance at my booth. He would love to meet you!
