Not even mother nature could stop our kayak pawty! Despite having to delay our New York City kayak and stand-up paddleboard event one day due to the weather, we still had a great time meeting current Benebone fans, new Benebone fans and their humans!
To celebrate the end of a wonderful summer, we rented out the Manhattan Kayak facility to allow dogs and their humans to come kayak and paddleboard through the iconic Intrepid Bay.
We loved seeing all the different dogs that came out to enjoy the day. We kayaked with small dogs, large dogs and every size in between.
One of our favorite fans and former Benebone Ambassador, @the_daily_ollie, even drove into New York City from New Jersey to show off his fluffy kayaking skills!
Not to be outdone was @nyyankeedog, Shaggy, who skateboarded his way into our hearts!
And, it wouldn’t be a summer pawty without a weiner (dog)! We had the pleasure of meeting @edgar_the_mighty and his Mom, Christa, at our past Boris & Horton event. We were thrilled when they made arrangements to come see us again at our kayak event.
We also received fashion tips from none other than the fashionista herself, @hollyhappyhavanese. Holly even traded in her designer threads to pose in our Benebone bandana for the day!
We also got to meet Instagram celebrity, @thedailywalter! As you can see, Walter Cronkite knows exactly how to work it for the camera.
Once everyone worked up an appetite kayaking and paddleboarding, the dog parents were treated to a catered dinner from Dig Inn, while the pups got to chew on their bacon flavored Benebones.
Every attendee received a Benebone tote bag, which included: a bacon wishbone, bandana, tennis ball and water bottle to keep the pawty going throughout the weekend.
