Everybody and Their Dog was There
We had a fabulous day yesterday. Our Citizen Canine Dog Walk was a big success. The sun shone and people came out in droves. Everybody was so happy showing off their dogs and meeting other proud dog owners.
And what a variety of dogs!
Big and little; old and young.
But I think the best thing was to see the wonderful interactions between kids and dogs.
These kids had entered their dogs in the "fastest eater contest" and were holding up their hands to show their dogs were finished eating.
These were getting their dogs ready for the "most unique trick" contest.
People just love to bring their dogs to an event like this and show them off. This woman dressed her dog as a pirate for the "best dressed dog" contest. She came in first place.
It's wonderful to see how much everyone loves their dogs. All these people are waiting for the final contest: dog the judge would most like to take home. The judge said (of course) that she wanted to take them all home, but of course she couldn't find the space in her house. I know I would have had a difficult time choosing. They're all so gorgeous.
