Have Recent Storms Seperated You and Your Pet?

A few weeks ago I wrote about the number of stories we were hearing about lost pets due to storm damage. Tonight's weather and prompted me to want to remind everyone to be sure to have current ID on you pet at all times! Microchip and ID tag with your phone number will help assure a prompt reunion with your pet!

WOW what a day... great weather, great folks, great food, and great danes (and those pups with Dane size attitudes!)! I think it is safe to say that everyone who came out to Danefest got a good night sleep Saturday.

Don't be a Couch Potato.. Come to Danefest!

Come to Dogs Unleashed in Keller for Danefest 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Today!
What to bring to DaneFest ....
• Your dog
• Vet records (if you have not pre-registered)
• Sunscreen
• Bugspray
• Folding chair(s)

It is a great opportunity to mingle with other like-minded people (i.e. people who will not think you are crazy for sharing your bed with 140lb dog)! We will be selling our soon to be world Famous Hamburgers and Hot Dogs!

WOW Danefest is THIS SATURDAY!! ! I have had a couple of questions that seem to keep coming up soooooo....
