Pet Expo was a success!

The Expo was a fantastic two days! We met a ton new people, made some great friends and became aware of a lot of great pet rescue foundations.

I think the thing I learned most about attending the Expo this year was the fact that there are so many resuce societys out there. They all are doing their best to make life a little better for som e very unfortunate dogs and cats out there.

There were so many specialized rescues. They specifically resuce certain breeds. There was one for pugs, one for greyhounds, one for pitbulls, one for Beagles and even one for Ferrets! But my favourite one is the Little Mutts Rescue. They specialize in dogs under 30 lbs.

Mrs. Big Nate almost brought home a little dog named Les. We would have picked him up but we felt we need a female dog to add to our pack, we already have two males. Mrs. Big Nate is overwhelmed by boys!

To do our part in helping this organization, we are going to feature one of their rescue's each month in our monthly newsletter. We might even feature Les in the April issue.

So I'll stop beating around the bush and get to what most people want to know. How was the winner of our draw for 26 weeks of free service

Drum roll please...

Our lucky winner is:

Michelle Conkin and family of Whitehorn in NE Calgary! Biscuit is one lucky dog who get to have his yard serviced once a week for six whole months! Congrats to Michelle, family and to Biscuit. Biscuit will be featured as April 2010's Poooper of the Month. Be sure to check out our website to see the lucky winner!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth and entered our draw. For those of you who added a valid email address to their ballots, we would to like send you a show special rate to say thanks for entering.

Until next year, that's it for another Calgary Pet Expo. It was a blast!!

Calgary Pet Expo Coupons

Good day everyone!

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather. Poooh Busters thanks the snow melting gods. We couldn't be busier. I guess it goes to show that dog owners just don't like venturing out into the backyard in the winter to take care of all that doogie pooop!

That's okay, we'll take care of that for you. And if you hire us for weekly service all year round, you won't have to worry about next year's melt.

Anyway, the real reason for this post is to provide everyone with a coupon for the 10th Annual Calgary Pet Expo. It happen next weekend down at the Big Four. We are counting down the days. Actually we have been so busy, we found it's creeping up on us quicker than expected! But we're still ready for it.

See this picture? You all you have to do is "click the pic", when it opens in it's large size on screen, just go "File - Print" or "Ctrl+P". Print that sucker off and get 2 for 1 admission right off the bat!

with much love...

See you there!

Participate at our Show & Tell Theatre as well as learn about your pet's needs in our Seminar & Lecture theatre. Ongoing throughout the show these areas will be sure to entertain, enlighten and educate you and your whole family! Pet Expo is a consumer show. That means that it is created for the public (that means you!). The retailers, breeders, associations and service providers are there specifically to meet you and answer your questions.

Sad Day at Poooh Busters

We truly love our job! We can really say that our hearts are in this, our job. I guess it's easy when you love dogs and all pets as much as we do. There is nothing better than being greeted weekly by some of the friendliest and happy-go-lucky mutts on our routes.

But probably the hardest part of getting to know the dogs in our daily travels is when we hear that these dear friends pass away.

It is with a heavy heart that we are sad to report, one of our very first customers and certainly one of our most favourite dogs since the beginning has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.
Jack the Jack Russell Terrier was suddenly taken away from his family the morning of Thursday, March 11, 2010. Jack was seven years old and will be sorrowly missed by his Mom and Dad and certainly by the Poooh Busters team.

Our thoughts are with them in this very hard time. We wish them nothing but peace during this very sorrow-filled time.
