Pictures from the 2011 Pookie's winter rescuefest

Yesterday I went to Pookies winter rescuefest 2011, so I thought I’d share some pictures I took. I really should have taken more but I got distracted talking to all the friendly folks there.

The turnout this year seemed to be pretty good, it was pretty busy. The day was perfect and lots of people brought their pooches, from very tiny to very large!

It was nice to finally meet in person the ones I have emailed and wrote articles about on here. It also was very nice talking to all the others and asking them about writing an article for them.
