Rhinebeck in February 2010

 

February 3

Pause Dog Boutique, Montgomery Row 2, Rhinebeck,  is hosting the following event: Cindy Brody, animal communicator

 

Kick off 2010 on the right paw by treating your dog to “Paws and Refresh,” our first annual benefit event designed to nurture dogs in body, mind and spirit. 
From 6-9pm on February 3, 2010, Cindy Brody, animal communicator and relationship counselor, Ursula Zorika, massage therapist, and Polly Kaplan, will be at Pause Dog Boutique to treat your “dog tired” pal to a post-holiday evening of holistic de-stressing. For just $50, your dog will receive three private 15-minute sessions, one with each of these professionals, based on your specific pet’s needs. Tea and treats will be served and participants will receive 10% off all Pause purchases. In the Pause spirit of giving back, the Jack Russell Refuge in Rhinebeck, NY will receive proceeds from the event.  Dogs of all sizes are welcome. Because of the event’s limited spaces, interested pet lovers must pre-register and pre-pay. To reserve a session, please stop by Pause, call us at 845.8-SNIFF-0 (876-4330) or send an email to pauseshop@yahoo.com.
