Dog Owners of the Granite State set up a booth at the Lakes Region Kennel Club Obedience Show the weekend of August 28th & 29th.  The show was held at Brookwood Pet Resort in Canterbrury, NH.  We spoke to several people that knew about us and many that had not heard of D.O.G.S.  When we explained what we do on behalf of breeders and pet owners and gave examples of some legislation we dealt with this year we got plenty of positive feedback.  Our booth was equipped with magnetic bumper stickers, dog toys, dog supplies and informative literature including the 2010 Final Legislative Report as well as an interesting printout of all AKC titles earned by NH dogs in 2009.  It was wonderful to meet so many nice people and learn that they are concerned about present and future legislation as well as get more exposure to our organization.

Special Thanks to Lakes Region Kennel Club for inviting us to their show and to Nancy Holmes & Britain Hill for spending the weekend with me talking with club members, entrants and spectators.
