7th Annual Big Gay Dog Walk & Party

The Big Gay Dog Walk – Party- Costume Contest – Best Tricks – and More event was really fun last year. Boris won best tricks!  Here is the latest about this year’s event:

“To All the Dog-Loving people out there,

The 7th Annual Big Gay Dog Walk, hosted by the Victoria Pride Society and Vancity, will be held on Sunday, July 3rd, 2011 from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm. This year’s location is the same as last: Dallas Road near the bottom of Cook Street. Last year’s event drew hundreds of participants, as well as media such as the Times Colonist! Music, prizes, hot dogs, the doggie dress-up contest and the agility play-area gave people and their dogs a fun day in the sun! This year’s event is sure to be even bigger and better!!

For those of you who have not previously participated, this is a fun-filled event whose key principle is to bring people and their dogs together within the community. For those of you who have participated in the past, we’d like to welcome you back with open paws!

If you are unable to attend but would like to make a donation (in product or otherwise), we will gladly utilize your generosity during our “Doggie Costume Contest” or during our numerous Pride Week events.

GoldiLock Keeps Your Dog Safe

Boris wearing his red GoldiLock

Have you ever wished you could walk your dog to the local corner grocery, or stop in a store for a few minutes and find your dog still there when you come back? I know I have.

Dog theft is on the rise, which means most of us owners would never consider leaving our dog(s) unattended, even for a minute while we pop into a store, and with summer on it’s way, we certainly won’t be leaving our best friends inside a hot vehicle, either.

With the new GoldiLock locking leash, you and your best friend(s) have options…now you can take that camping trip, walk to your favourite store or outdoor market and safely lock up your dog in a shady spot, safe from traffic, knowing he/she will still be there when you come back.

This Vancouver-based, all Canadian company brings you a wide variety of fun colours (black, blue, green, red, teal, purple or pink) to choose from (Boris loves his fire engine red one), and a size that will fit even the tiniest Yorkie (YorkieLock), so what are you waiting for, now you can go anywhere, safely and in style with your best friend(s).

The other upside of the GoldieLock, of course, is that it will get you out walking to your errands, making both you and your dog healthier while producing zero carbon emissions, making the GoldiLock an ultimate green choice for our stressed environment.

Asia, at recommends this new locking leash for your best friend(s) and has negotiated a special 15% savings for dog whispering clients and friends, so be sure to send an e-mail asking for the special coupon code, when you order your GoldiLock.

Now, get out there and enjoy these wonderful summer days with GoldiLock and your best friend(s) at your side and don’t forget to ask for the special savings code. Dog Whispering
