Nitro, Chris and I had a blast at our local dog festival called Woofstock here in Roanoke Virginia this past weekend. Our friends Waynette and Elliot from Sponsor Hounds hosted a great Woofstock this year and our website deafdogsrock.com was honored to be part of their line-up. We hosted a "Dog Celebrity" tent so folks could meet Larry and Harley Groah the Biker Dog, Kickin, Zoe and Kristin of Dogs Rock Blog and Nitro of Deaf Dogs Rock blog.
We had a blast and saw a lot of our rescue friends and got to hang out with some of Nitro's best buddies from the Salem Rotary Dog Park. We also had Evan a beautiful 9 month old deaf white boxer mix puppy from the RVSPCA to let folks know that deaf puppy Evan was available for adoption.
Here are some photos from our time at Woofstock. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
Thanks for "hopping" by The World According To Lexi. Have a great weekend! xoxoxo Christina, Lexi, Nitro, Bailey and Tallulah
DeafDogsRock.com tent at Woofstock. The weather was perfect at 72 degrees. It was wonderful having my sweet husband Chris there because he hung out with our deaf dog Nitro which freed me up to talk to people and educate them about how wonderful deaf dogs can be. Our purpose for setting up at Woofstock was to promote our website where we offer deaf dogs up for adoption, deaf dog training tips and resources. We also wanted to introduce them to our deaf dog Nitro so they can see how wonderful a deaf dog is and can be. We also really wanted to highlight local dog celebrities because these are the folks on the front line when it comes to rescue and getting the word out via social media when it comes to getting help with transport and rescues.
Larry and Harley the Biker Dog and Karen with Evan from the RVSPCA. Karen was a huge help with Evan. She volunteered to look after and keep Evan entertained for us so the general public could meet him. Karen also entered Evan in the Costume contest and won second place with Evan wearing a Deaf Dogs Rock T-Shirt!
