sodNy_IMG_3229I am honored to be apart of the New York State Fair entertainment lineup!  Upon arrival on Tuesday, I was directed to my performance area which was a huge patch of concrete. Obviously, due to the nature of our stunts, the dogs can’t perform on cement. The fairs utility crew was very professional and immediately got to work on our performance area.  I had sod brought in and professionally laid to accommodate our high energy show!

The fair started out being a little wet, however, I haven’t had to cancel any shows yet. The sun came out yesterday and sunshine is expected for the remainder of the week. The dogs are staying cool and performing spectacular. The stands have been packed ever since our first show on Thursday. You can check out some news highlights from Channel 9 WSYR and Channel 10 Now!

I am truly enjoying myself here at the great New York State Fair. The grandstand concerts have been a lot of fun. So far I’ve been to three concerts: Gavin DeGraw with Kelly Clarkson, The Fray, and comedian ventriloquist Jeff Dunham.  The Fray was my favorite of the three, however, all the concerts have been very enjoyable. This Saturday I’ll be joining the crowds to see Kid Rock. I’m also hoping to catch Switchfoot at the free stage this week.

    I have a dozen photos from the NYS fair highlighting your high energy dogs! You had asked for people to send them to you. However, your main website does not have an email address to send them, nor a place to upload them. [You might also want to update your copyright date on your website.] Please let me know if you want the pictures from the NYS fair. Thanks!

    All the best,

    wonderful performance. My family had the pleasure of seeing your show twice at the fair. Both times were great experiences. My daughter was one of the children that were picked to go up and have a dog jump over her. She will never forget the fun she had. Your message of dog rescue was so heart warming and sincere! Wish there were more in the world just like you. Keep up the good work!!!!

    My husband & I saw your show at the NY State Fair on Monday, Aug 30, 2009. It was DOG GONE FUN! I took many pictures & due to my excellent camera got some great shots. I combined these to make a “movie” adding effects & music to the pictures so that my husband & I-and our dog-can enjoy the show again & again! I’d like to send you a copy of this in case you’d like to enjoy it as well…Where would I do so?

    Hi, Chris!

    I sent you the photo “movie” via as you suggested. I’m curious if you received it as this was my 1st time using this that website? I did alot of editing to the photos to highlight the dogs against the colorful clothing of the audience. If you’d like edited or UNedited jpegs, I’d be happy to provide them to you as well…Anything to further the dog adoption cause…Just let me know…Thanks again for a great show!
