She would like to, but he is going through a phase (we hope) of being a bit snappy with other dogs, she would have to muzzle him....

I would like to take one of the Bassets', but I'm not sure about that, I think Reb would be befuddled (it doesn't take much) and Skip would probably love it, but he can be a bit of a handful when he gets excited and is really strong on a harness.

I will be at the GSRT booth both days. It will be nice to meet some people from pets.ca

For those of you that have already done this last year, what were your days like (what did you spend the day doing at the booth....) ?

Hey Masha! thats so great! I cant wait to meet up with ya!

basically the point of Woofstock for us is to raise some needed funds for the rescue animals BUT the biggest thing is the get the GSRT name out there and to as many people as possible. We are always in need of fosters or adopters!

we do have quite a few people who come with general GSD questions! we have a few people that come with training questions!

we hand out information about the group..

generally its a great day and lots of doggies to see!

it also gives Sylvie and I a break because we end up doing both days at the booth and they are long days! basically 6am to 6pm...

Looking forward to meeting you there Masha! Sounds like we'll be relieving Winston and Sylvie together

Even though I can't actually bring her I'll have to bring some of my cutest pics of Kailey.....maybe telling her story will break a few hearts and sway some people into considering foster or adoption! It will be neat to tell people about our experience of rescuing her and all the amazing help we got from GSRT.

I can definately do that - maybe her story will inspire some people.

This year we are just planning on giving you and Winston a pledge, with the goal of Chase doing the walk on behalf of Kailey next year (maybe at age 3 he'll be a little less excitable....hopefully!)

Is there a deadline for donations???? We'll have to connect if you need it before June 14th.

So are we making arrangements again this year to meet up somewhere or are we just gonna stalk the others at the GSRT booth. Probably end up there anyway, with or without the fuzzbutts. Start really bugging the Montreal crowd now to come out and play.

I'll be there with Winston and Sylvie all day on the Sunday....don't know exactly what times I'll be at the booth, but I expect to spend the better part of the day there, aside from bathroom breaks and buying presents for my puppers. I'm sure we'll manage to meet

We are hoping to ge the same spot as last year! Its got a bit of shade and its right near the johnny on the spots! (tons of them so no one worry! and they have sinks in them!)

Maybe once we know who all will be there as we get closer to the date then narrow down a spot to meet!

Angeldogs are you coming again this year! cant wait to give Jag a big kiss!

Okay I gotta figure out a way to get the Montrealers in on this one? Aslan did you say Benmax had a big van?

Hey Chris we are more than likely going down both days. The odds on actually spotting someone in the crowd are pretty slim. For those that have cell phones we could give each other our numbers and just call when we can meet that day.
