As an aside, before I delve into part 2, I thought it would be fun to take you to the Bark in the Park event they have every summer here. It’s a hoot!
I love poochies!
I even happen to have a few – My gal pal Glee Tallulah (Pembroke Welsh Corgi), and my pardner Rootin’ Tootin’ Twister “Rooti” (Australian Shepherd/Border Collie cross), resident stock dogs for my 3 lot spread up here in Big Sky Country 😉
I’m going to let them stay home today while I attend the annual “Bark in the Park” fund raiser for the animal shelter here in town. Glee told me she and Rooti don’t feel like hobnobbing since it’s so darn hot out.
It was fun to watch all the events, and the dogs seemed to know that the afternoon was all about them. I didn’t see even one dog get cranky with another, it was just all about having fun!
They had a “which dog could jump the furthest” contest. They would throw a ball into the pool and supposedly the dogs were to leap into the water and retrieve it….the biggest majority of the dogs would outfox everybody and run to the pool stairs to walk in rather than jump! Everybody had a good laugh over those. A couple did eventually jump in and they of course won ribbons!
There was every size and shape.
These 2 were “sisters” from the same family.
This was Mo, a skateboarding superstar.
This was a very friendly little “fairy goddog” named Delta.
These little babies were all for adoption. They were all so busy and wiggly I unfortunately only got pictures of their south ends when they were headed north.
Anyway, it seemed a fun time was had by all, and I think they were able to raise a goodly sum of money for the shelter!
All in all, an awesome way to spend a beautiful summer afternoon.
