Watson, Cricket, to Headline 2006 NW Pet & Companion Fair

Singer-songwriter Jonathan Hoffman is trying to take all the credit for bringing OUR Dog Tunes to the Northwest Pet and Companion Fair 2006 . The Pet Fair is scheduled for the weekend of April 22-23, at the Portland Exposition Center, E-Hall; 2060 N. Marine Drive, Portland, Oregon. Bring a can of pet food to the Fair. The sponsors of the Pet Fair are donating all pet food collected to the local AniMeals(Vancouver & Portland areas) program. It is a program for the cats and dogs of people who receive home-delivered meals. Many of these folks give up their food to feed their cats and dogs. That is why locally FIDO (Friends Involved in Dog Outreach) started ANIMEALS - a partnership with Clackamas Co. Social Services and Senior Meals programs to provide nutritious pet food for the cats and dogs of people who receive home-delivered meals. Second Chance Companions works with the Vancouver area program. The Pet Fair will be providing space for additional Pet Food donations. During the last four years, the NW PET & COMPANION FAIR has collected and distributed well over 6-7,000 lbs of pet food to local Rescue and Shelter groups.


Cats are planning a Meow-In to protest the lack of Cat Music at the Pet Fair. Feline Folkie Cindy Mangsen, who recently released the all-kitty CD, Cat Tales could not be reached for comment. Rats, beavers, and other rodents would also protest if they thought of it. Alas, we have found no recordings, recent or otherwise, of rodent music.
