StubbyDog in the Community!

September 28, 2012  

By Laura Petrolino, VP of Operations

First, a quick apology for the absence of blogging as of late. Here at StubbyDog, we have a had our hands full with some pretty amazing Superheroes and with some pretty exciting agendas of advocacy, outreach and making the world a better place for dogs and communities! I have lots of blogs in the pipeline to be written soon!

One of our goals with our Superhero program was to help give us the opportunity to take our presence from online to offline and into your communities, working intensively on a local and national level to further our mission. So expect to see StubbyDog out and about in the community at a fairly frequent rate from here on out.

Next weekend, there will be StubbyDog representatives at the following three events, so if you are near by, come on out and say “Hi!”

1- Pit-acular Wine Tasting:

When: Sunday, Oct. 7, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. EST
Where: Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane, VA
Details: Bring your (well-mannered) dogs and children to this beautiful winery for some wine, fun and friends. See Facebook event page for more details.

One of best things about this event and this winery is the “boss” of Barrel Oak, the owner’s dog, Peanut.

Peanut is an American Bulldog/Lab/Beagle mix and runs the whole show. The folks at Barrel Oak adopted Peanut after an adoption day event they had with Lost Dog & Cat Rescue. She was one of a litter of pups who were all named after wines. Her wine name was Pino; however, owners Brian and Sharon changed it to Peanut when potty training came about.

2- Beyond the Myth Screening:

When: Thursday, Oct. 4, from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. EST
Where: Rave Cinema’s South Point 17, Durham, NC
Details: Two of our Superheroes, Super Squad member Skyler and Superhero in Training, Elle, will be at this event for a meet and greet at 6:30. Come meet these amazing canine caped crusaders, and stay to see the film.

Dare to “Bull-ieve” Pit Bull Promotion Festival

When: Saturday, Oct. 6, from 11:00 – 2:00 p.m. PST
Where: Central Campus of San Diego Humane Society and SPCA
Details: Come out for the fun of a “Bully Beauty Contest,” educational activities and other events. StubbyDog reps will have a tent and info table.

We are so excited to have the ability to start getting out in the community on a larger scale. We can’t wait to start meeting all of you (and of course your dogs … well, actually we are mostly excited to meet your dogs, but it will be nice to meet you all as well!)
