Action-Packed End of Summer at Hooked On Dogs

We have a lot of fun stuff happening at Hooked On Dogs over the next several weeks.

This Sunday we're going to be chillin' and grillin' at The Chocolate Factory. We're having a BBQ at HOD just because we feel like it. Come by Sunday sometime between noon and 4, and have a burger, dog, or a grilled veggie item. Hang out for a while, and enjoy a lazy summer Sunday afternooon with us.

Next week, HOD will be at the Dutchess County Fair. We'd like to thank our friends from Pawstars for inviting us to "set up shop" in their booth again this year. If you are going to be at the fair, stop by the dog tent to say hi, and make sure you catch one of the Pawstars frisbee shows! We will be open at the store, too, but with reduced hours. We'll be open from noon until 5 Tuesday through Friday (and then regular hours over the weekend).

We have three adoption days coming up! Out of the Pits (August 22), Perfect Pets Rescue (September 4), and Animal Farm Foundation (September 12) will each have days at the store to share information and show off some of the wonderful dogs looking for homes. All 10 of our dogs are from rescues/shelters (the most recent, Thelma, from AFF), and I can say from experience, there's no better way to add a new family member.

September 24 - 28, the store wil be CLOSED. You say it better be for a damn good reason??? We think it is! Nadja and I have both qualified dogs to compete in the Hyperflite Skyhoundz World Canine Disc Championship in Chattanooga, TN!! I qualified with Squirty Birdy, and Nadja qualified with Wee-la. This is the first time we will head to the world finals with each of us having qualified a dog in advance. We are very excited, and have decided to close the store for 4 days so we can both go compete. :-) We'll be updating our Facebook page with results, so make sure to follow the action. Here's a picture of Squirty tracking her Frizzz.

Whew . . . once we get through all of this action, fall will be in full swing. I can smell the apple crisp baking . . . my favorite season of the year . . .
