A Weekend of Meetups

Have you heard of meetup.com? Well if you haven’t you should check it out. It’s a website for all interests. If you are interested in photography and want to join a group in your area, there might be one. Or like me, if you love dogs, you can join groups that are dog friendly. I actually created a group of my own for dog lovers and this weekend was a super busy weekend of events.

Friday night we had Yappy Hour at the Wine Bin in the next town over. They hold this event the first Friday of every month. The wine is there on a donation basis and the best part if you can bring your dog. This isn’t the best photo as it was taken on my phone camera.

Saturday was DogFest 2012 where a ton of vendors setup in a huge field and pass out free dog food and dog treats, and some dog toys and other gadgets. My dog Sadie was so overwhelmed by all the other dogs that by the end of the event, my hands were sore from her pulling on the leash. There was one vendor who is looking for part-time dog walkers so I plan on emailing them to find out more information. When I got home I crashed, literally falling into a TV coma. I couldn’t move, I didn’t want to move, I didn’t care about moving.

Sunday (today) there was a Bark-B-Q event at the dog training academy where Sadie and I attend training. This was a free event so I had to go, plus they had demonstrations on Rally and Noseworks. I am currently in Rally but I was really interested in seeing advanced Rally. And Noseworks was very cool. The dogs get a scent and they have to go and find it buried in various items in the parking lot. So this demo intrigued me and plan on signing up sometime after Rally I.

So now I am relaxing and writing my blog community sharing this busy weekend I had. I plan on staying on the couch and catching up on TV for the rest of the night.
