Some more fun things to do this weekend and next (and next)

I forgot a couple more things that were going on this weekend - so here they are -

September 15th - this Saturday, is the 3rd annual "Bark in the Park" - one of the major fundraisers for the NS SPCA - and this year it's being held over in Shubie Park in Dartmouth. Last year it was held in Seaview Park in Halifax, so it's nice that it's moving around.

It sounds like there's going to be lots of fun stuff going on - I'm not sure which dog I'm going to take with me, on Friday both Bubby and Sidney are going to the beauty parlour, so maybe it'll be one of them - but Ollie is still loooking for a home - so maybe it'll be him!

If you're in the Shelburne area - you'll definitely want to be hanging out with your dog on Sunday (September 16th) because they're going to the dogs! It's happening at the Shelburne Museum and there's going to be a whole day's worth of fun - there's going to be a dock-dogs event, flying disc dogs, face painting for the kids, and lots of other fun stuff - you can find out more about the whole day at

NEXT weekend Basinview Animal Hospital is holding an auction for TWO local rescues - Cool Dog Rescue, and Halifax Feral Cat Rescue which is run by Lori Martin. I think it is awesome when vet clinics and veterinarians raise money for rescues - it shows that they put their time and initiative where their mouths are and that they care about the local community - and they should be supported by everyone in the local advocate and animal community - awesome.

The auction is happening September 22nd from 2-4pm at Brewsters Pub and Grill in Bedford - they've gathered up a bunch of great stuff to bid on - so go out and spend some money! Check out their facebook page for more information.

September 30th - is an event I'll definitely be taking Ollie to! It's a gathering of Nova Scotia Chihuauhas! It's happening from 10:30am to 12:00pm at Jollytails Daycare at 3484 Intercolonial Street in Halifax - and hopefully Ollie will meet his new Mom or Dad there - here's hoping, anyway!!

TONS of stuff going on

There is a lot of stuff going on in the near future - so I thought I'd mention a few of them that I've heard about -

Animal Rescue Coalitions is having a meet and greet on September 7th from 6 – 8pm at the Chester Yacht Club - it's going to be hosted by Tracy Jessiman, supporter of ARC.
Anyone who donates will have their name entered in a draw and three names will be drawn at 8:00pm for free pet portrait paintings by Tracy even if you can't attend you can be entered for the draw - I can attest to the beautious-ness of Tracy's pet portraits - because I have one! haha! Tracy immortalized Daisy in paint a couple year's ago, so I am very lucky to already have one of her super paintings - and you can have one to if you go to the meet and greet tomorrow night (Friday night). There's a Facebook event set up that you can get specific information about the event to click through to.

Saturday September 8th is the next humungous yard sale held by 2nd Chance Charity for Animals being held outside the Dartmouth SPCA at 5 Scarfe Court in Burnside Park - there's going to be tons of stuff there - something for everyone - and 100% of proceeds go to local animal welfare groups - it's win/win for everyone!

Sunday September 9th there's going to be a pug meet at Fort Needham Park at 1pm in the north end of Halifax - the pug's don't discriminate though - just as long as you're a small dog - you can come and play with them - they don't mind - and Fort Needham has an off-leash area - so you can go and play off leash with them! Yay!

They have also set up an event page that you can go find out more information about the day if you need to

On Monday September 10th you cannot miss the official campaign launch event for Tuxedo Stan - I know I won't be missing it! It's going to be at Freeman's in Fairview on Dutch Village Road - I hope you already have your tickets though - because as of today - tickets are unavailable - I don't know if you may be able to payola your way into some tickets between now or then though - so go check out the Tuxedo Stan event page to see if you can buy your way in to Tuxedo Stan's good graces - I'm just sayin'.,...

Next weekend - is putting on a fund raiser over at Animal Acres hospital at 721 Main St, in Dartmouth - Elderdog is a great organization that is a national group that is based here locally, so they need all the money they raise - they are fabulous.

This event is happening October 13th - so click on their event page to stay up to date on what's happening with it and buy your tickets early

And get your tickets for this event SOON - because this is going to sell out very fast!

And keep posted for a dinner and auction that's going to be happening in November hosted by Atlantic Small Dog Rescue - it's being held on Nov 3rd at Shooters Bar in Enfield, from 6pm-9pm - it's going to be a lot of fun - and bring lots of MONEY!
