    Default We Just Got Back From Woofstock

    Hi Everyone, the family took Bulldozer and Blossom to Woofstock in Toronto today, and we had a great time. I brought my 5 year old Grandson with us, and he only had one thing on his mind, and that was to see a Great Dane down there. Someone at school had told him about Great Danes and how they were as big as horses. Lol. I explained to him that they weren't as big as horses, that people just said they were like horses because of their size. I showed him on the Internet what they looked like and he said they didn't look that big, he wanted to see a real one. He asked me if he would see one at Woofstock, and I told him he would probably would because there was so many kinds of dogs there. Well he got to see about 10 Great Danes, and has decided that their not that big, because they are not bigger than him. Lol. His new favourite dog is the Chuiauaha and the yorkies because they are cute and small. Too cute.
    We met lots of bullies and their owners there, and I talked up EBN to everyone, I think I may have 4 or 5 recruits. All in all it was a good day, we scored lots of cool stuff, I got my guys 2 new England soccer shirts, new leashes, new balls, new dog name tags, some Wellness soft treats which were half the price of the stores and everything was no tax, bonus. They also got a dog first aid kit, some poop bag hooks that you put on their leash, to hold the bags, so you don't have to carry them, and I scored a wooden Bulldog plaque to hang on the wall to hang their leashes on.

    I'm not so sure if my husband would agree that the day was totally good though, because he got pooped on his shoulder by a bird, and then when we were leaving and walking back to the car he stepped in a big mushy dog poop pile and then he almost slipped on it too. Whee. Lol. He didn't think it was very funny though.


    Here is a pic of the stuff we got down at Woofstock :

    Man oh Man, Monica, that sounded and looks like a blast. As a child growing up by @JeannieCO, I don't know if she remembers or not, But one of the High Schoolers use to ride a skateboard, and walk his Great Dane through the neighborhood, Only problem was, when the great Dane started running I could hear the skateboard wheels humming a block away, and I thought they were as fast as a passing car in the neighborhood !!! They were Amazing, But then I remember Jeannie's St Bernard too, he was Handsome and a Big, Big St Bernard !!! As a third grader in grade school, These pets were Giant !!

    Monica, sounds like you had a great day and your hubby and a crappy day.... Doesn't seem like it's been a year already since you did the last Woofstock. Time sure flies. That's the coolest thing when you many of one particular things: great danes, bully, jeeps, mustangs, horses, etc. Always awesome. Oh and got a really good laugh on the pot and the egg. OMG

    Dave, I keep trying to rack my brain to remember some of the things you do. I can't recall the guy and the Great Dane, maybe he never came down my street? Love (he was a she) was a big girl no doubt. A gentle giant.

    I'm sorry Jeannie, I meant to say She, and forgot to correct it…. With a name like "Love" I knew she was a she…. But yes, a Gentle Giant !!

    Yeah. They must seem huge to a child. It's great having my grandson, it's like a gift of a child in your life again. My kids are 31 and 33. It's a lot of fun to see the world through a child's eyes.

    I'm glad you liked the joke, I hit a good chuckle out of it too. It hasn't been a year though since the last Woofstock, the last one we went to was in October, and it was the winter Woofstock which is an indoor venue. This was the summer one , and it was held outside.
