Pit-tie Par-tay

You may or may not remember, but back in March I oh-so subtly begged my friend to throw another Pittie Party and guess what?  She’s doing it!  And doing it big.

Maggie went to her first event not long after I got her and I’m not sure who was more terrified, her or me.  I literally had two leashes on her because I was certain she was going to be scared by something, flip out, and get away from me.  Of course that didn’t happen and she was a very well-behaved, though admittedly shy, little lady.  Fast forward to today and I cannot wait to take her!

This event is going to be HUGE compared to events in the past, too.  There will be adoptable dogs from various rescues there, a doggie kissing booth, agility courses, food trucks, face painting, and the list goes on and on.  There really will be something for everyone!
