Mark your calendars for next Sunday, January 31st and come join in the fun at the WinterPaws Dog Show in Blowing Rock!

You can bring your dog and enter one of six fun categories or just come for the entertainment. Doors of the Blowing Rock elementary school gym will open at 12:00 and food will be available – hot dogs naturally!

Shelter dogs (including current Diamond Dogs) will be there so you might just meet your new best friend. Proceeds will help with the care and feeding of the homeless animals at the Watauga Humane Society. I’ll be there showing of “my” Diamond in the Ruff, Ripley, and answering training questions and questions about our Diamonds in the Ruff volunteer training program. Last year’s ¬†WinterPaws Dog Show was ¬†BLAST, and I’m really looking forward to this year! Last year I brought Foreman, who is actually Ripley’s brother. I’m sure she’ll steal hearts, just like he did! 12548864_1677507029193759_6710282525118608130_n
