All About Dogs Show
I am soon heading to the UK to join friends at the biggest ever All About Dogs Show in Newbury Showground. Held over two days – Easter Sunday and Monday, 17-18 April – the event is packed with activities for the whole family. It is the first event of its kind that Schnauzerfest has undertaken, and I’m excited that the charity will have a presence at a large event like it. The potential for educating people about the puppy trade and advocating for rescue dogs is huge.
Almost as huge as giant Susie-Belle who’ll be keeping a watchful eye on the stall!
The last few weeks have seen us getting new resources prepared, including leaflets covering puppy farming in all its guises. As well as the serious message, when Schnauzerfesters gather it’s always a lot of fun and I am looking forward to being a part of it. Most importantly to welcoming and thanking in person as many people as possible for supporting the charity. The work it does these days is great, especially for a young, small and completely volunteer run organisation. Schnauzerfest’s brilliant supporters make it all possible. They care enough to get involved, and stay engaged.
All my books will be available on the stall and if you already have copes feel free to bring along for me to sign if you’d like that. All proceeds from sales of my books are donated to the charity.
We are very lucky, and extremely grateful to have everyone’s support. And thankful for private donors for helping to cover the costs of many of the new resources. Kind, authentic support and the generosity of many has always been a hallmark of Schnauzerfest since it’s earliest days. That this continues through these challenging and hard times, is not only reasuring, it’s inspiring.
