What a great day and let me start out by saying, Terry Libro does an amazing amount of work organizing these events, set up and tear down, and she is there both days, all day. We were there until 2:00 and it was busy.
Linda Riegger was very popular with face painting.
KJ would sit inbetween clients, then when he was done, he was walking around and telling people where they could get their faces painted. He also enjoyed helping out with the booth and running the wheel. For $1.00 people could spin the wheel where it would stop on a 1 or 2 and the spinner could pick 1 or 2 items from certain bins.
The Jezebelle collars are probably the best sellers. The dogs model them. We had someone with a boxer wanting to buy one before we even officially opened. These can also be ordered from the collie shop on the website: http://www.mwcr.org/merchandise.htm#thumb
They're pretty far down on the page.
Prairie absolutely loved the whole experience. What an attention hog. If someone was petting Thor or Cat's tri-color, Prairie would sidle up inbetween the petter and the pettee. He especially loved the babies in strollers. One, in particular, was so sweet. Prairie put his nose up to the baby's face and the baby leaned his face into Prairie's, in a cheek-to-cheek hug. Wish I was camera ready for that one. I actually failed as a photographer. I didn't take any pictures of our stars. Not trying to make excuses because I could have taken some, but for the most part I did have two leashes in my hands.
We had a pretty good location, better this year than last. Just one booth in from the end of the aisle. We were right next to a guy who had wall-to-wall home made treats. Prairie was trying to scam some every chance he got.
The really cool part was I got a chance to have a reading done on Prairie by Ilga Cimbulis. http://ilgacimbulis.com/
