3rd Annual Woofstock Returns to the Florida Keys

Posted by Elizabeth Mayhew on Thu, Mar01, 2012 @08:14 AM

Canines and their human companions will gather for a good time and a good cause on March 10 at the 3rd Annual Woofstock at Founders Park in Islamorada, Florida. The fund-raiser will feature live music, food, pet-centric shopping and special events, with proceeds benefitting presenter MarrVelous Pet Rescues & Adoptions.

The festival begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. Admission is free, but donations at the door are most appreciated! If you plan on attending — and you should — be sure to hit these highlights as you work your way around the park:

Blessing of the Pets

Every October, Catholic churches around the world celebrate St. Francis of Assissi’s love for animals with a blessing of the pets. Consider the one at Woofstock to be a booster blessing! The ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. at the Amphitheater.

Ultimate Air Dogs

What started as a Michigan dock-jumping club now reigns as one of the premier dock-jumping organizations in the country. You will have plenty of opportunities to see the Ultimate Air Dogs do their thing, and your pups will be invited to participate as well.

The Islamorada store will stock its booth with a multitude of pet products including:

  • Peace Out Dog Harnesses — With Woofstock’s theme of “Peace, Paws & Music,” you’ll want to slip this brightly colored harness on your pup immediately. Sizes for all dogs big or small!
  • New! Pet Themed Tervis Water Bottles — Convey your canine pride while keeping your beverage (and yourself) cool with these fun water bottles.  Get a free, ice-cold bottle of water with your Tervis purchase at Woofstock.
  • Rescue Tees – Show your support for animal rescue by wearing this tee! Paw print burnout short sleeve t shirt with "Rescue is my favorite breed" printed on the front. Not only is this a cute tee, but we will donate $1.00 of your purchase towards animal rescue.
  • Dog Collars and Leads – We have all your favorite designers! Teddy the Dog, Up Country Collars and Leashes, Guy Harvey, and Douglas Paquette to name a few.  (The “Adopted” collar and lead by Up Country are personal favorites for this occasion!)

Adoption Booths

In addition to presenter MarrVelous Pet Rescues & Adoptions, the following organizations will have dogs in need of fur-ever homes.  Woofstock visitors looking to adopt from one of these great groups should  visit their websites to learn more:pet edge peace harness

  • Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida
  • Boxer Friends Inc.
  • Big Hearts for Big Dogs Rescues
  • Dachshund Rescue of South Florida
  • This is the Dog
  • Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys - Marathon
  • The ZENA Fund

All well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome at the 3rd Annual Woofstock at Founders Park. One final tip: Leave extendable leashes at home for this event, as it will be crowded and the danger of wrapping such a leash around someone’s legs exists. Don’t have any other kind of leash? Stop by Latitude 25, and the store’s helpful staff will help you pick out a collar and matching leash for your pup.

See you there!

Tervis Tumblers: A Hot Little Cup with Cool Characteristics

Posted by Gail Schneider on Thu, Dec01, 2011 @10:13 AM

With snazzy designs and creative technology, Tervis has been keeping our cold beverages cold and hot beverages hot for 65 years.

Let's face it - they're everywhere - on the golf course, your co-workers desk, and even sitting right next to you in the stadium, but what exactly are those double-walled cups with the fun and fanciful designs?

Friends, let me introduce you to Tervis Tumblers; a design innovation from the mid-1940s that uses the insulating powers of air to make a tumbler that keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold  But that’s just the beginning!  It turns out there are TONS of reasons to love Tervis Tumblers.

Virtually IndestrucOur fearless leader, Gail with the Tervis Mascot!tible

Imitators beware!  Tervis Tumblers are made out of high-quality polycarbonate, which basically means they’re ten times more impact-resistant than other plastic tumblers.  Plus, all that fancy technology makes Tervis Tumblers safe for the dishwasher or the microwave.  Now that’s hot!

Lifetime Guarantee

It doesn’t matter if your Tervis Tumbler was purchased this year or in 1946, if it ever cracks, chips, or becomes defective in any way, return it to Tervis for a replacement, no questions asked.

And if you should send your Tervis back, don't worry about it going to the “Goblet Graveyard.”  Tervis takes its responsibility to the environment pretty seriously, so everything old becomes new again through the magic of recycling.

Personalized for You

With hundreds, neigh thousands of designs to choose from, Tervis has a design that showcases your own distinct personality, your favorite ball team, or your favorite store!

No Joke, They Float!

Perhaps this notable trait doesn’t deserve its own sub-heading, but if you’ve ever been on a boat, or to the pool or beach, don’t underestimate the awesomeness of an unsinkable cup.  (And if you think I’m above testing this theory, you’d be mistaken.)  On the other hand, if you prefer a “land yacht,” Tervis Tumblers are perfect for RV adventures since they can take the hustle and bustle of the road.Santa Tervis Tumbler resized 600

Kid Tested, Mother Approved

Thanks to the specially designed double-walled insulation, Tervis Tumblers drastically reduce beverage condensation, meaning the Coaster Wars are over and peace in the home is restored.  More importantly, with the optional lid and straw, carpet and car upholstery is saved from future grape juice fiascos.  [Note to self: Buy lid and straw for red wine nights.]

Born in the USA

Springsteen aside, you’ve got to love that Tervis products are hand-assembled here in the States, ensuring high-quality products and providing your neighbors with jobs.  It’s a win-win for everyone!

Give-Back Programs

We love to give back, so it only makes sense that we sell products that are made by like-minded manufacturers.  Tervis has introduced three different lines to support Our Troops, Breast Cancer Awareness, and our personal favorite, the Morris Animal Foundation.  Be sure to purchase one of our Pet Tumblers today to ensure a healthier tomorrow for our animals and wildlife.
