Friends of BARC once again participated in the Houston World Series of Dog Shows held at NRG Arena from July 18-22, 2018. We had our usual double booth with excellent exposure to the general public to learn how Friends of BARC helps the homeless pet population at BARC. In addition, we offered microchipping for dogs, and educated many folks about the need to microchip their animals. The Dog Show has something for everybody: Breed competitions, Rescue groups, Animal-related vendors, Artwork, Contests and Food. This year, Friends of BARC invited Doug Markison to our booth to show off his talents as a dog trainer. Doug brought two of his four-legged proteges, who performed remarkable tricks on Sunday to gawking onlookers.
A great time was had by all, especially when we found Mike Kinsella’s doppelganger working another rescue booth. The resemblance is uncanny![ngg_images source=”galleries” container_ids=”8″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_thumbnails” override_thumbnail_settings=”0″ thumbnail_width=”240″ thumbnail_height=”160″ thumbnail_crop=”1″ images_per_page=”15″ number_of_columns=”0″ ajax_pagination=”0″ show_all_in_lightbox=”0″ use_imagebrowser_effect=”0″ show_slideshow_link=”0″ slideshow_link_text=”[Show slideshow]” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]
