It's been a while since I've been at a Yappy Hour and I'm so happy I finally was able to make it to one of these great events. These are hosted by Daniela of Who Lets Your Dog Out. She has a dog walking/playing/sitting business based in Patchogue. She puts on these great events to give back to her dog walking clients, to expose them to other pet businesses in the area, to let clients' dogs socialize with each other, and just to have a good time. Daniela had even set up a little doggy treat buffet for clients to enjoy. This one took place at New Village in Patchogue.
I got to hang out with a lot of Daniela's clients and their adorable dogs, some of whom I've met at other events, and I made some new friends too. We even discussed a fun new project that we're hoping to do at New Village, which you'll hear about once we figure out more details!
It's always so much fun to go those these kinds of events and to meet with local dog lovers. One of the owners, who I'd met last summer, was so surprised when I asked about her dog by name, because she wasn't with her. She couldn't believe I'd remembered the dog's name after only meeting her once. I get this a lot, and my response is always "People's names I can't remember, but I never forget their dog". :)
Here are some of the unforgettable dogs I hung out with that day!
