Comments:Canine Partners For Life, a nonprofit organization that trains dogs to assist individuals with a wide range of disabilities, is hosting a puppy party for volunteers who would like to learn about housing and training a puppy for one year. Puppy home volunteers are responsible for teaching the puppy basic obedience and correct house manners, as well as socializing the pup in public settings every day. The volunteer pays for the pup's food, collars, leashes, and toys. A veterinarian will cover the cost of the puppy's veterinary care. Puppy home volunteers must attend an orientation and four CPL puppy classes. Once the puppy is placed with the home, the volunteer and puppy must participate in two CPL classes per month. At approximately 14 months, the pup is returned to CPL for more formal training. CPL trains service dogs to provide physical assistance to their partner 24 hours a day in home and public environments (for example, individuals with disabilities caused by ALS, Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, arthritis, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, paralysis, amputation, and more). CPL also places seizure-alert dogs to alert to upcoming seizure activity. Finally, CPL places home-companion dogs with special-needs children or the elderly to work in the home environment. To register for CPLs puppy party, please phone Susann Guy at 610-869-4902, x 210, by October 26th.

Comments:A "Canine Explosion" to Bark About on Sunday, Sept. 29 The Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance is thrilled to host its ninth year of WoofStock on Sunday, Sept. 29, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. along beautiful Riverfront Park in Harrisburg. This great and groovy festival grew from 40 vendors in 2005 to 180 vendors in 2012. This is the day the dogs come out to PLAY! It┬?s a fun day┬?┬?. with a serious message. It was created to be a huge adoption event to bring all the rescues and shelters in central Pennsylvania and beyond together to help their animals get adopted, and to educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering and kindness to animals, and boy, did it ever. Meet many adoptable animals, animal related celebrities and authors while you stroll Riverfront Park. Listen to the sounds of awesome bands and acoustics performers throughout the day. Don┬?t miss the popular Funkytown Pet Costume Contest. Please stop by CPAA┬?s WoofStock outta-sight raffle and t-shirt booths. Grab a bite to eat from one of the food vendors attending this doggie love-in. Be sure to arrive early to be able to visit all the various vendors.Go-go boots and bouffant hairdos are not required to attend this day where tie dye will reign, music will rock and canines will roll!

Comments:The National Dog Show Presented by Purina and the annual Kennel Club of Philadelphia (KCP) dog shows will take place this year at the Greater Reading (PA) Expo Center Saturday and Sunday, November 22 and 23, when some 1,500 purebred canines will be on display for the public while competing for top honors in the ring.The dog world's most watched event takes place Saturday, November 22, when the renowned National Dog Show Presented by Purina will be contested among some of the finest dogs in world with $20,000 in prize money and enormous prestige at stake.Tickets for both Saturday and Sunday are available by calling Ticketmaster at 215-336-2000 or 717- 260-2000 and by visiting www.ticketmaster.com and searching National Dog Show. Ticket prices are just $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 years of age and under. The events start at 8 a.m. each day, continuing into the late afternoon and culminating in Best In Show judging around 6 p.m.The Saturday and Sunday shows are benched shows, which means that the purebreds are on display to the public throughout the day, as opposed to most dog shows where the entries come and go according to the time when they are judged. The appeal to spectators - especially children and parents who want to bring man's best friend into their home - is that they can see the entries up close and personal, talk to owners and handlers, learn about the 150 plus breeds and have their picture taken with the canine stars. There are over 3,000 dog shows in the United States each year and only five are benched shows.The Kennel Club officials expect 15,000 spectators at the Expo Center over the weekend, visiting with America's top dogs and checking out scores of vendors and nonprofit animal organizations. More than 150 breeds will compete in a ladder elimination format Saturday for Best in Breed, Best in Group and at the end of the day, Best in Show honors. The National Dog Show Presented by Purina, will be telecast nationally by NBC as a t

Comments:The Village Renaissance Faire is a recreation of a 12th through 16th century village named Penn's Park.
It is conveniently set on the beautiful, and generously donated, Middletown Grange Fairgrounds located minutes from Philadelphia, New Jersey, Montgomery County and anywhere in Bucks County Pennsylvania.
The Village consists of eight stages and various sets: Merchant Squares, Living History Pavilions, Food Courts, Gaming area, Multi-cultural enclaves, Craft Corners, and Kid's Kingdom.

One weekend every year the fairgrounds are transformed into the ultimate family festival with stories, intrigues, history, crafts, varied entertainment, and interactive play. The Village has all the entertainment, crafts, food, and history befitting the interest and entertainment of everyone, from peasantry to nobility, youth to seniors.
The Village awakens each day at 11:00 am for visitors to wander about and become accustomed to the village layout before the grand procession and a full day's worth of activities.
"A fair field full of folk found I there." - Piers Ploughman
William Langland
1362-1390

As one explores the lovely re-created grounds, it may be impossible not to pause for a moment to listen to a musician, watch a mime, or interact with the countless characters, performers, and demonstrators.
The Living History Pavilion provides the opportunity to watch the mending of armor, henna tattoos, the illumination of manuscripts, hand-to-hand combat and archery, among other demonstrations.
It will be difficult to decide what to do (or what to do first) as performers fill multiple stages and sets begin every half-hour.
Performers provide a wealth of offerings. See a fire-juggler, watch authentic hand to hand combat and live steele, watch a human chess match, listen to music and choral groups, and be enraptured with mimes, knights, archers, and fair maidens. The Faire has non-stop entertainment for all ages.
