A Wooftastic Day at Woofstock!
We had so much fun as an exhibitor for the very first time at Woofstock this past weekend!
Even though Saturday had some major rain, there were unexpected sunny moments during the afternoon and people came out despite the crazy weather! Thank you so much to all of you who attended, especially on Saturday.
A special BIG THANKS to one of my current clients (and Toronto's Top Dog 2019!), Dexter and his momager for stopping by on Saturday!
Sunday was a beautiful day, in stark contrast. We visited with lots of people at the Kuri K9 Massage booth both days, but Sunday especially. Check out the crowds!
Those who have signed up for the email newsletter list can expect a welcoming email later today. The sign up for the draw for a free Canine Massage session was so successful that I've decided to draw 3 winners! The three lucky winners will also hear from me later today.
I so look forward to meeting your pups and working with you and your fur baby going forward. And a SUPER BIG THANKS to Woofstock for putting on another great event!
Kuri K9 Massage will be a vendor at this year's Woofstock Festival (their Sweet 16, no less)!
Find our red tent on Saturday May 25th 10am-6pm and Sunday May 26th 10am-5pm at Woodbine Park, Toronto.

Continuing with compilations from my Instagram and Facebook posts about dog and cat breeds:
The Plott originates in the US for cold trailing and bear hunting. They have smooth, short coats in any shade of brindle (including black with brindle trim, brindle with black saddle), solid black or buckskin and some white is permissible on chest or feet only.
In 1750, Joahnnes Georg Plott brought five Hanoverian Schweisshunds from Germany to his new home in the Great Smoky Mountains. In the early 1900s crosses with other lines were made to improve the Plott strain.
Plott's are eager to please, loyal and courageous. They can also be headstrong. They need a long walk or outing every day. No major health concerns of note.
The first evidence of the Scottish Fold, historically, (or cats with folded ears, at any rate) dates back to 1796 China. That year, it is said that an English sailor brought an example with him back to Europe. The next case was reported in 1938, again, in China.
The Scottish Fold has a medium, rounded body, well-rounded head, ears folded forward and down in a cap fashion, wide open and large eyes, a short nose and firm chin. The coat comes in both short and longhair and variants, as well as all colours.
Some hereditary health issues in the breed include osteoachondrodysplasia (abnormality that affects cartilage and bone development), polycystic kidney disease and cardiomyopathy.
