Leeroy:  "There are two dates for this, so if this Saturday doesn't work for you then you can book time for the next one!  Or even drop in to see what it is all about!"
Rupert:  "The goodie bags for those who book a session are great!  There is the chance at winning a $575 original painting of your pet by Doodle Dog Paintings!"
Leeroy:  "Kellie is also giving discount cards for her original artwork...."
Rupert:  "Sounds like a really fun time for a super cause!  Hope you can make it!"

Leeroy:  "Last year Kellie donated artwork at a Montreal art auction.  This week's painting is of the winner's Rhodesian Ridgeback, Riley."
Rupert:  "Say that three times fast..."
Leeroy:  "Rhodesian Ridgeback Riley, Rhodesian Ridgeback Riley, Rhodesian Ridgeback Riley."
Rupert:  "Ok, smarty pant....too bad that's not the title of the artwork, it's actually called "Riley Roo"."
Leeroy:  "Me likey....looks like he is coming right at ya."
Rupert:  "Also coming right at ya is the new Doodle Dog website!  It will be launched on Thursday, May 7th so make sure to check it out then!"

Rupert:  "That's right, but remember NO CHOCOLATE for us...it is toxic to our systems!"
Leeroy:  "Oh, well...there's LOTS of other treats that we can have and I can't wait."
Rupert:  "Speaking of chocolate, look at this painting...it's "Classic Cocoa" the dachshund!  She is a wee girl with gorgeous colouring."
Leeroy:  "Now that's a kind of chocolate we can enjoy!"

Rupert:  "Good one, bro.....the background coordinates with her owner's decor!"
Leeroy:  "Cool!  Hey, know what else is cool.  Kellie is on Twitter now - does anyone want to follow?  There are so many talented and unique people to find and meet and chat with."
Rupert:  "So much to do this weekend!  Bunnies and treats and tweets and walks and naps and car rides and visiting and licking and...."
Leeroy:  "Whoa, boy!  Calm down, one thing at a time!"
Rupert:  "Hey, I can multi-task!"
Leeroy:  "Well, I have see you eat more than one thing at a time...so I guess you can."
Rupert:  "You got it.  Have a great long weekend everyone!"
