Doggie Fun Day Report

Hello Ta All this fine day........


Well, it wasn't all that fine cause after it rained pretty much all day Friday and Saturday, it was hot and windy taday........but taday was Doggie Fun Day and we wanted ta have FUN, FUN, FUN !!!!!!!!



We were ready ta go early this mornin' and after we had all the stuff packed in the car and trailer, we left ta drive ta Butler, Pa. fer the big day.........

There were a bunch of 12 week old Bassett Hounds next ta where we set up and Gram went over ta see 'em........Cute, aren't they.......

There were rings set up fer practicin' Obedience and this doggie was in that ring with his Mom.....

Then a celebrity appeared 'n everyone went over ta see who it was....we were pretty sure it was Angelina Jolie but now we think maybe it wasn't her at all.....but she was a celebrity fer sure.....

Ya can see some of the rings they had set up there so people could try Agility, Rally, Canine Good citizen, Earthdog, and Conformation with their doggies.......

And some more of the doggie day goodies.....

People were a bit slow gettin' there and then we got busy cause we were runnin' the earthdog stuff fer all the people ta try......

Oh, this is the father of some of the puppy bassett hounds....


We had a lab puppy that wanted ta bark at the rats we had in the cage.

Labs can't get inta the tunnels cause they get too big....Earthdog is only fer small terriers and a few other breeds. But this guy was barkin' at the rats anyway...

Then one of the WPA Earthdog Club members, Donna, was there taday with her 2 Westies. She has been tryin' ta get Angel ta get interested in the rats fer earthdog fer years now. Well, taday, Angel got interested in the rats. See what ya think....



Now we all had a fun day but it was hot 'n windy so everyone is pretty tired tonight. But we think Doggie Fun Day was a big success......'n we're ready ta plan fer next year.

So how was yer Sunday ?????

This is Dewey Dewster here reportin' on Doggie Fun Day..............

Hi Dewey! I am so sorry that I am so late visiting after your run-in with the porcupine!! I hope you are feeling all better now. I almost cried when I saw you guys with all those quills in you! Oh but I am so glad they are all out.
Love Clover xo
P.S. Happy belated barkday to Toby!
P.P.S. I live in Ottawa, Ontario - and it is about a 4 hour or maybe 5 hour drive to Burlington, Vermont, where we went to visit this weekend!

Hi Dew. Your Sunday was a whole lot better than mine. We had the tail end of Ike up here in Eastern Canada -- lots of rain and wind. Today too but it's starting to get nice again.

Looks like the Westie is finally ready to catch himself some rats. I'm glad you had a good time at Fun Day. You guys sure deserve to enjoy yourselves.

Hi Guys!!

Boy, that sure looks like fun! You guys get to go to the neatest places and do all kinds of interesting things. One thing for sure, you guys are not bored. Too bad that the day was so hot and windy. We had the same weather here, too, but I stayed inside in the AC. I'm not good in the heat. Anyway, glad that you had a good time.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Wow! That's a lot of fun to be had all in one day!

Actually, I can't recall any day in my life that was packed with so much fun!

You must be dog-tired...right?

My days have been sort of okay...nothing special actually! Except that you-know-who came up with another canine puzzle and then there was this news about Buddy that I had to post:)

About Mercury's sloth...
Oh, you've not seen the real Mercury...she's so selectively lazy:) I'll tell you more about her, when she leaves her laptop behind (so she's careless as well...I mean, how bad can you be!)

Licks n Wags,
Oorvi
