This past weekend I had the opportunity to go outside of my territory to represent Purica at an event at Woofy’s Pet Foods in Courtenay. This event was very fun to be part of. I didn’t know anyone there and this made it even more fun as it was a completely new environment and whole new set of faces! It was raining the entire day but that didn’t slow things down in the least. I am not a pet owner, I did grow up with dogs though so I can relate, and boy was I reminded how much people love their pets. This event was people and dog watching at it’s best! I talked to so many people that my throat was getting hoarse before the half way point in the day since almost every person stopped at my booth and wanted to chat. It was really rewarding to find out how many people were already using Recovery SA, or had used it, or knew about how great it works for so many animals. And after the topic of supplements had passed the wonderful pet owners often continued on talking to me about their pets and all sorts of other things – everyone was just so positive and happy to be there. I am sure the hot dogs and cake helped keep the energy and spirits high! The store staff were incredible, and it was clear to see they all loved animals and loved helping the customers find something (or many things) that would make their pets happy. There must have been 15 staff working, including the owner and I don’t think I saw one of them standing still for more than a few seconds. I wrote this little article just so I could try to share the feelings of happiness and wellbeing I experienced last Saturday. I was in a great mood throughout the whole event and my cold feet and underdressed clothing didn’t really affect me all that much because I was in such great spirits. While I was there I remember having this moment where I thought: it doesn’t matter what the event is, theatre, sports, pet store “Barking Lot Sale”, convention, etc., when like minded people come together in large numbers everyone has fun and leaves feeling great. I hope this article makes anyone who reads it feel good too! For more information, check out www.adamomeara.com or email Purica Ambassador Adam O’Meara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
