    DefaultDog Day today! 5 PICS!

    Well, our annual doggie blowout at Centennial Park was today. It is sponsored by the local Humane Association, and this year our club had a presence at the festival I was so happy to see us do this. I volunteered to work it this morning, and Kevin brought the boys down and walked them around while I worked.

    I only got a few pictures this year, as my camera battery was on its last legs.

    Here is our booth. We partnered with the Nashville Kennel Club and shared space with them.


    Here is one of my club buds with Kevin and the boys. She is the pet therapy assistant. She also assisted in Angus' very first class at the club, so she is one of the ones who appreciates how far he has come. She was trying to tell me how good he was today Look at them, though, acting like little monkeys!


    Here's a shot in front of our booth. I look like hell, but they look cute.


    And a couple of the obligatory pose by the bales of hay shots. They were SO over it by this point, I think you could have set off a bomb and they would have yawned. We are going to have two very quiet doggies for the rest of the day.


    Simon couldn't even manage a sit. Too tired!


    We ran into a couple of our neighbors there too, which was fun. The girl up the street had her boxers there. Funny, they always react badly to the older female, and she doesn't seem to like them very much either, but in this strange venue they were fine. They were especially happy to see the younger male, who REALLY wanted to play with Simon very, very badly!

    There was some pretty good shopping, too. I got them each a taz-lab collar. This is another attempt at something that will safely break away during bitey-face, but will allow me to keep ID on them. I was happy to get them at the festival. No shipping, and I got to try the collars on them which was VERY helpful. I actually ended up going with a 16" for Angus, and 18" for Simon! I would never have thought Simon had the bigger neck.

    We had a really good time, but we are all a little beat now! Just wanted to share our pics.

    I wouldn't have thought that Simon had a bigger neck, either. Maybe all the hair??

    Sounds like a fun day!

    Mitzi always pulls that lie down like Simon when you want a pic of them sitting side by side.

    I've never seen a pair of dogs who actually look like brothers as much as your two, despite the obvious differences in appearance. Something about the way they are together....

    Great pics, sounds like a fun day!

    The "obligatory bale of hay shot" cracked me up! I have that deal at Christmas with our animals and the obligatory photo in front of the ever expanding artificial tree from hades. I used bales of hay to teach Ellie Mae to jump/bust through cover and cast back through cover for hunt test training. So now, whenever she sees a pile of hay bales, she is like "WHOO HOOO!" and wants to position herself to try and do a swan dive over them/springboard off of them. This does NOT go over well with my wife when trying to walk Ellie through the farmer's market!
