I can always recognize this time of year. The boss spends a lot of time on the phone talking with convention centers, hotels and U-Haul. Yes, it is boat show season. This is the time of year when my dog boat ladder ends up on a display stand instead of the boat and I get left behind to look out the window and watch it snow.
It seems even more chaotic this year because there are now seven models to display in a 10′ x 10′ booth. Definitely more WAG for you and your dog! It appears he is working on building a dock or shelf to be able to use the vertical space. (Leave it to an engineer.) The showroom gets emptied and there are boxes everywhere. I think my rawhide got packed by accident.
The first boat show WaterDog Adventure Gear™ will be at is the Minneapolis Boat Show on January 30 – February 2. This will be our third year for this show. The first year, we had one dog ladder for boat model and the boss took what would fit in our SUV. He sold out. Last year, we had five models and the boss took a 5′ x 8′ cargo trailer. He sold out of three of the models. This year, with seven models (twelve SKUs), he’s going to need something bigger. Maybe he can rent a Winnebago and I can go with him.
Oh wait, a 10′ x 10′ booth. Sounds like a dog kennel. I think I’ll stay home and watch it snow.
