It turned out to be a wonderful event thanks to two Weimararner foster moms and Justin Ledger, a local realtor (who actually raises Boxers) who put it all together for the store. He donated 2 big baskets of toys and treats, a large dog bed, and bag of food for people who entered his free raffle. Justin's facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/justinledgerrealtor/.
|Cooper, Ellie and their foster moms|
Ellie and Cooper's Foster moms brought them to the event and both came quite a distance (over 1 and 2 hours!), but that's what dog rescue people do! Ellie's mom from Northern Virginia, and Cooper's mom from the Maryland/Delaware line. Both stayed for the duration of the event. There was also a Weim member who brought her agility winning dog to the event and spent time there.
|Folks stopped by to meet Ellie and Cooper|
Two families expressed heavy interest in Ellie, and one woman came back TWICE with middle aged parents, and their other dog to see if their dog and Ellie meshed well (they did).
For an event that just came together, I'd say it was pretty successful over the 4 hour period!
