Took Henery to Niagara DogFest today! It's an annual trade show of all things doggy-related!! Here's the linky: http://niagaradogfest.com/ Henery's daycare lady, Susan, organizes it every year.*
Anyway, WOW!!* *
We went early, and there were already tons of people, and dogs. Henery had much fun 'niffing this and 'niffing that, snuffling little kids, 'niffing all the good treats and cookies! We worked hard on "no visit!" and "no jump!"... very hard* since there were tables laden full of treats and cookies, right at the edge! A disaster just waiting to happen! LOL!
Henery was an angel and earned himself yet another collar for his collection!! LOL! Yes, I am obsessed! We ran into our favourite proprieters of doggy accessories and treats (Sirius The Dog Store, Clever K9) as well as Henery's very first trainer!! We hadn't seen her in probably 2 years, but she recognized Henery right away as he butt-wiggled and danced around her! Hopefully she'll be offering some advanced rally classes soon!
Also finally met the Starrs of raw food (thanks Labracorn!) and was able to pick their brains about raw... I've been thinking of switching Henery for quite some time now, but the thought of true raw... buying pounds after pounds of chicken/meat, adding this, supplementing that, was truly daunting as I'm paranoid about screwing it all up and doing more harm to Hen. The Starrs make a prepackaged raw... just thaw and serve!! Right up my alley! LOL! Anyway, super nice people, offered to sit down with me and draw up a plan for Henery.*
Anyway, a good day! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
Here is a pic of Henery modelling his new collar!
Oh wow! That looks awesome. I could seriously do some damage at a show like that. Glad you had a good time and Henery was so well behaved.
Henery, you look so handsome in your new collar!

Wow, I love his new collar!
Oh man, that sounds like SO much fun!!! I would LOVE to go to something like that! We have Dog Day coming up in October, and that will be fun, but they could use more SHOPPING at that! :P
That's so neat that he got to see his first trainer again! What a happy reunion! I'll bet she was so impressed with what a little man he has become! ;D
