    Oh darn it – this is something my kids and I would have so wanted to attend. We were going to go to NE Ohio this weekend and had to cancel (kids’ school workload). I hope you’re able to attend so we can read your blog to find out a little about what we missed!

    On another note, I had a great interview with a realtor from NE Ohio (Carol Cohen) – podcast is on the site.

    I am certainly planning to go. It’ll be a busy day. First is “Bark in the Park,” which my dog loves to go to every year. Her favorite thing is agility. My favorite are the police dogs. They are so awesome! My dog (a Rottie mix) doesn’t like the police dog demo because she doesn’t like any aggression, and I think she gets confused. She loves meeting all the people – especially the ones with treats in their pockets.

    Then, World Fair Trade Day in Independence. I’ll be sure to write about it next week!
