Woofstock 2010

We SO enjoyed our time at Woofstock in Damariscotta - just a couple photos from the day!
Here are two alumni - "Buddy Bear" now Ben Bear is the handsome yellow fellow above and he was adopted this year into a wonderful family. Charlotte, now Kimchi, was adopted way back in September 2008! Beautiful and lucky sweeties!
The last photo is
our new friend Oscar who
won the "cutest puppy" contest! How could he NOT win with those ears?!

We were also joined by our adoptable cutie Chester who arrived with his foster brother Rhett who was adopted over a year ago from Lucky Pup. These little guys were a big hit and Chester is still looking for a loving forever home that has at least one other dog in it.

Paws in the Park 2010

What a beautiful day for a walk at Deering Oaks! Vendors, pooches and their human pals, food, and fun! We were thrilled to be visited by some of our alumni pups - Maggie, now Ivy (brown and white) was adopted in April of this year and is doing great! Blake, now Baxter, was adopted in January and Chanel, now Penny (photo on left) had JUST been adopted within a few days and what a beautiful girl she is!

Knocking down some pins for our pooches!

We recently participated in a bowl-a-thon to support our rescue. Vacationland Bowling in Saco hosted us and we had 5 teams of bowlers - the Gutter Pups, Retriever Achievers, Halliday Farm Hounds, Who Let the Dogs Out?, and the Stumpy Tail Gang!

Check out our wonderful friends and junior bowlers! Glow bowling was a blast!
Not only did we have a great time but we raised over $700.00 for the rescue to send Baxter for training!
Thank you especially to Crystal for organizing and Donna and the Gutter Pups for the unbelievable fundraising job! Our new friend Santos even came all the way from Mexico to bowl with us!
