It's that time and we NEED another meetup... like asap!

So... with the Dulles Pet Expo just around the corner I propose we meet up. Who is in?

March 15-17th is the Expo. I'll be working AT the expo on Friday the 15th (my shift is from 4-9) because my work is running the agility demos there, but I will be off on Saturday the 16th and wondered if anyone would be interest in having a meetup at the expo on the 16th. If you can't make it the 16th, but for some reason can make it the 15th let me know or come meet up with me at our booth where the agility demos are being held.

I don't know for sure if I will have one of my dogs with me on the 15th since I'm working... have to ask my boss about it... the 16th I will for sure have Cricket though still debating if I will bring Joey. Last time I brought Joey to an expo it was hard to just enjoy the expo because everyone and I do mean EVERYONE kept stopping me asking about him. Sweet72... (Cristy) can testify to this. Though... people stop me because of Cricket too, but meh... it's just easier to bring one dog.

Um, yes. Adam wasn't happy that we had to miss the one in Timonium, so I'm sure he'll want to go.

I'm a tentative maybe. Coworkers are trying to organize a spa day to celebrate all the math teachers' March birthdays (half of us are March babies!), and that's the date that they have it penciled in for. I don't know what the timing is going to look like.

If it works out though, I will try to stop by!

I won't be able to make the Dulles expo this year, I'm working that weekend. I could probably ask to switch, but the poor kennel manager has already had issues with the schedule for people asking off, I don't want to bother him further. XD

And yes, I can testify to the fact that we were stopped on average every two minutes by people inquiring about Joey when Amber and I were at the Maryland expo. The dogs themselves handle it pretty well, they have fairly solid temperaments. The biggest problem with the both of them was that they continuously tried to swipe goodies from all the booths selling dog treats. :p

Alrighty... this expo is coming up this weekend!!!!

I have to work there on Friday from 4-9 and I don't think I'll be able to leave my booth that whole time, but I am for sure free on Saturday for those that want to meet up on Saturday. If you are a for sure yes let me know and if you don't already have my phone number I can PM that to you.

I will only be bringing Cricket this year. I brought both Cricket and Joey to the one in MD and it was a train wreck trying to manage the two of them. Cricket is MUCH better if I just have her and doesn't pull as much, but Joey... I think it's just too much stimulation for him right now and toooooo many people want to stop and ask about him. It's just easier to leave him at home right now until I've put some more EXTENSIVE training on him. Crazy silly beezer boy.

And Bamm... well obviously he can't go... so just Cricket this time.
