* HOWLiday Party Update! *

-- Although we have a couple of dogs under the weather, we're still going to have a great turnout for this Saturday's event. Bella, Buddy, and Autumn's SIX puppies will all be in attendance! Stop by and meet them!

-- Our photographer has to leave a little early around 1:45pm, so get there early for some PAWsome photos with Santa! The event runs from 11am-2pm.

-- So far we've heard that there will be cookies, peanut brittle, almond bark pretzels, gingerbread granola, chocolate pistachio biscotti, cinnamon almonds, and gingerbread kettlecorn for sale for the humans and PB, PB molasses, pumpkin, sweet potato BARK, and sweet potato chew treats for the pups!! YUMMY!!!! Come stock up and freeze the items for the holidays or just sit down and eat it all at once like us.

It's going to be a great day for a great cause - we hope to see you all on Saturday at Rochester Pet & Country Store's NORTH location!
