See Spot Walk

Hello, Chico here!

Yesterday we went to See Spot Walk.  Didn't actually do the walk cuz we got there late and it was pretty much over when we got there. 

We got a late start because the parakeet and old beagle went home yesterday morning.  Mom's parents just got home the night before (a little unexpectedly early!) so she went over there first thing to drop off the animals and to visit with the parents.  Mom stayed a little longer than she planned to so we didn't get out on the road on time.

Mom was planning to leave the old beagle and Shiver at home and just take me but with her parents coming home, it changed her plans.  Shiver hates to left at home alone even more than walking so the decision was quickly made to bring us both along.

The dog walk was in another town and we had about a 45 minute drive.  We got there and saw TONS of people standing in front of the park entrance with their dogs so Mom had to find some place else to park the car.  Fortunately she found a place close by so we didn't have to hike to get to the festivities.

We got there and Mom got everyone registered - Mom got a shirt and we got a bandana.  We walked around the park and my goodness, it was PACKED!!!  I never saw so many dogs in one place before in my life!  I swear there must've been one of every dog breed there, big and small.  We sniffed at a St. Bernard who was quite friendly which is a good thing cuz he could've eaten me and Shiver for lunch if he wanted to!!! 

Lots of people asked if they could pet us which surprised Mom.  Of all the dogs there, people wanted to pet US!  Shiver and I were both very shy which is unusual for me.  Normally I'm very outgoing but all those other dogs there and all that activity was sensory-overload, I think. 

Mom checked out all the booths and got us lots of samples of food and treats which she stuck away in a bag for another time.  I made sure to "mark" each booth we went to.  BOL  Just wanted all those other doggies to know I'd been there! 

We walked around for about an hour and a half.  The wind was starting to pick up which was made it chilly so we headed back to the car.  On the way home our Mom stopped by a Burger King drive-thru for some lunch and she didn't share a single bite with us.  How RUDE!!!

We got back to the house and Mom tried to make us go out in the back yard for a little bit.  We'd spent all day out there already so we weren't having it!  She finally gave up on that and let us in the house where we all curled up for a nap.  The rest of the day was spent relaxing around the house while Mom finished up some housework.  All in all, not a bad way to spend a Saturday!
