A Woofy Good Time

WoofItDown_91110
Is it really Monday already?  What a great weekend it was, but boy did it go by fast!  On Saturday, we took Lola and Teutul over to Woof it Down for the "Best of NH" party celebrating their recent achievement in the 2010 New Hampshire Magazine awards.

A great time was had by all!  There was cake (for those with 4 legs, as well as those with only 2), Yoghund frozen yogurt for the pups, raffles to benefit the Animal Rescue Network of New England, vendors with samples to share and more!  Lola made friends with the lady from Stella and Chewy's, sweet talking her into more samples than she probably deserved.  Even though freeze dried treats are one of his favorite, Tut was too preoccupied with knowing what all of the other dogs were doing to partake in sampling.  He even turned down C-A-K-E, but no worries... Lola sure ate her fair share!

In the car, on the way to the party...

Vendors at Woof It Down
We met a wonderful lady from Natura who took time to ask about all of our dogs' ages, needs and allergies, then put together a bag full of kibble samples from their three major brands (Innova, California Natural and EVO) for us to take home.  On Lola's recent trip to the V-E-T, the thought of switching her to a senior formula was mentioned.  Lola certainly doesn't understand why she has been singled out as a senior, given that her brother Zeus is 16 months older than she is and no one has suggested a senior food to him yet.  Although given her activity of choice at the party, you might see why she's been called a senior...

I've got them all fooled...
Although the lazy Queen sure did know how to fool Mama when she wanted too!  While her Daddy distracted was showing me some toy, she got up and stole one of those big bones that you can see in the photo on the left (notice Teutul right there next to them, yet he didn't help himself to one... which is actually surprising).  Hmmm... think Lola and Daddy were working together on that one?  We just added the bone to the purchase pile, which already included a new moose antler and a bag of Fruitables.  At least there was a 10% off party-special!

Patty & John, owners of Woof it Down, really put on a wonderful, fun-filled event.  The personal touch they add to everything they do is just another reason why we love WID so much!  We were sent home with a super goodie bag full of samples from Zuke's, Stella and Chewy's, Fromm, Merrick and more, as well as a Yoghund frozen yogurt for all 4 dogs.

All partied out and time to head for home...

Sophie & Zeus were happy that their brother and sister were kind enough to bring them home some ice cream!  Although Zeus was even happier with the new moose antler...

Big fun! What a fabulous idea for an open house. I wish one/some of the pet stores around here would do such!

Looks like Lola and Teutul had a wonderful time at the party! What nice dogs to bring home something for their sibilings. I can't believe how cute the weekends come and go.

That looks like so much fun! :D And I know how Lola feels. I just got a card in the mail from our insurance co. reminding me that it was time to start getting mammograms. I've still got 10 years, dangit!
