Wine and Wags is one of the Erie County SPCA's annual fundraisers. It was previously held on the grounds of the shelter, and it still is, but now that location is in West Seneca. Local restaurants will be selling food and drinks, and there will also be pet-related vendors. Leashed dogs are welcome, as always.
The Eastern Hills Mall usually has a Pet Expo once or twice a year. It includes pet-related vendors and rescue groups with adoptable animals, and giveaways. As always, pets are welcome to attend.
You can also get your pet's photo with the Easter Bunny, from Cherry Hill Photography, between 12-7pm. This is in addition to their already-scheduled session on March 29th.
Clarence's annual "Bark in the Park" event is being re-imagined, so that it is an event in itself rather than a part of their "Day in the Park" festivities. So it is a little earlier this year. The event will include vendors, demonstrations, contests, and activities for the whole family. See the current list of activities at the event website.
The Eastern Hills mall will be having pet photos with the Easter Bunny for 3 hours on March 29th. I'm not sure yet what the cost will be, but the photos and prints are provided by Cherry Hill Photography.
The Boulevard Mall is having photos with the Easter Bunny for children in the weeks leading up to Easter. On April 9th, there will be a 2-hour time period when pets can also have photos. The printed photos are provided by Shutterfly, and their photo packages range from $23 to $48. Check out their price list.
As you may remember, my Chihuahua Ren, the inspiration for this site, passed away suddenly last year. While I'll never stop missing my "heart dog," I'm happy to say that I have adopted another Chihuahua who will carry on the work of the site with me. I've had him for a few months already, but feel now is the time for an introduction.
This is Ash, a Chihuahua who I adopted from the Lakeshore Humane Society in Dunkirk (although he has a graying muzzle, his estimated age at intake was 2 years). Like Ren, he loves people and loves going to new places. I'll be checking out some dog-friendly places with him, and writing about them here. The name of the site will stay the same, as Ren was my inspiration, and I will always think of it as his list.
A walk for dogs and people, with a park naturalist, to explore the history and beauty of Artpark. Pre-registration is required because space is limited. Call (716) 282-5154 to register.
This is the second annual Bark Bash event, put on by the Friends of Knox Farm State Park. It includes, vendors, contests, and other activities, to be announced as the date gets closer.
