AAarrroooo to a New Year!

A fresh new year for all our DOT pals! Aren't you excited? Lots to see, do, and experience in the upcoming year! I know my hounds are looking forward to finding new trails to explore, new treats to taste, sniffs to experience, there's a new dog park that isn't too far away, well you get the drift...we are ready to get started!

Plans are already in the making for some of our favorite doggy events like Slobberfest, Paws N Play, Puppy Play Date...I think it's really something when my pups get more invites then I do!

I know there are a few new dog oriented charity drives going on as well. Our local Humane Society is trying to raise money for a new shelter that they wanted to break ground on last August. Unfortunately our area which does not have much industry was effected by the economy and this did not take place.

I believe each new year that we have is a brand new start with new opportunities for all of us to make a difference in the lives of those around us including our doggie buddies. So whether it is taking our pal for an extra walk, playing a new game, obedience training, dog therapy classes, or donating our time, funds, skills to an organization such as listed above, I believe we can take this year as a challenge to do just that; be more involved and live life to the fullest!

Upcoming Dog Events to watch for:

  • AKC/Eukanuba National Championship will be simulcast on Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2010, at 8 p.m. (EST/PST)
  • 134th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Coverage begins Monday, February 15 at 8/7C on USA before switching to CNBC at 9/8C. USA will broadcast the complete Closing Night competition at 8/7C on Tuesday, February 16.
And for those of you who do not do the superbowl:
  • Kick-off of Puppy Bowl VI begins February 7, 2010 at 3PM e/p on Animal Planet. And don't forget the Kitty Half-time Show
So how about you? Want to leave a comment or two about new adventures or events you have planned or are involved in? We look forward to hearing all about them!

Happy DOT's from,
Tina, HoneyDew and Sampson too!

Hey, thanks for the reminder of the dog shows!! Never heard of the Puppy Bowl before. I'll have to look for that one! My hopes for this year is to get out for more walks. Not sure what else yet. One thing at a time.

Sounds like you have a lot of interesting things lined up for this year. Gee, I have not thought of anything yet except trying to spend more time with Happy.
