New local pet event, Athletes and Animals July 28th!

Athletes and Animals pet event

There’s not many pet events going on during the summer, due to the heat. We don’t want to make our pets walk around a hot field or dress up on a hot Florida day.

But there are a few that take place inside, and they don’t really require you to bring your pet. One of these is called the Athletes and Animals event, brought to you by a local Stanley Steamer company.

Mark & Connie Gellner, Owners of Stanley Steemer of Central Florida, are active in the local community and they decided to start a fund raising event for two unlikely groups; Special Olympics Florida and The SPCA of Central Florida.

They decided to hold a bowling event that would benefit these two groups last year and it was a great success. So this year they hope the Athletes and Animals event will be even better.

This year it will be held on July 28th. All donations are greatly appreciated and you can come out and have fun without having to be on a team. Go to their website below for lots more information. Thanks! 🙂

Doggy Derby this weekend, Jazzie will be a winner!

Orlando doggy derby

I wanted to let everyone know that this weekend, Saturday the 9th will be the Doggy Derby event at Baldwin Park! This year a good friend of mine will be racing her little doggy, and boy is she fast!

My friend Ashley has a tiny toy Schnauzer doggy named Jazzie. A toy Schnauzer is much smaller than a miniature Schnauzer, growing only up to 8 lbs or so. But Jazzie is young and very fast, especially when she knows treats are at the other end of the finish line!

Ashley has registered her lil Jazzie for this years doggy derby. So if you have a small dog your racing too, Jazzie will be one of the doggies you’ll be racing against. She’s been training and no other dog gets to her treats before her!

I will be there too, taking pictures and videos of the races. I’ll be putting some of the videos up on Youtube, so you might just see your own doggy online! So for a fun day, come on out to this years Doggy Derby at Baldwin Park this weekend! 🙂
