Tonka drew in crowds of people and made many new friends as he happily greeted people and snuggled up to anyone who would let him. He was well behaved in his crate, but preferred to be out getting all the attention he could.
In the afternoon Tonka was pretty worn out and a cover was put on his crate so that he could get some much needed sleep and even while he slept people would sneak up to take a peek at the sleeping puppy.
One potential adopter drove in from Ohio and Tonka met him and his lovely dog. A young lady from Philadelphia stopped by to meet Tonka and she even said that she has Tonka's photo hanging up in her cubicle at work.
Besides getting some new toys from the give-away at the PetSmart booth Tonka went to a grooming booth and got a pedicure (nails trimmed and finished with a dremel). The groomer said it took longer to do Tonka's nails because she had to play with him for a bit. When we were packing our SUV to leave with Tonka a lady stopped by to give him some treats and a new Kong toy, which he already loves. Even some of the show staff stopped us on our way out of the building to get some Tonka loving to end their day.
Shorty and his dog Hercules from the show "Pit Boss" on Animal Channel were one of the attractions at the Steel City Pet Expo.
A big thank you to all our friends who stopped by the booth to meet Tonka and support Tri State Weimaraner Rescue!
