Whew we had a super Saturday! We hope you will forgive us as momma has been too busy to help us read or write the blogs. She keeps mumbling something about homework and not enough time in the day to do things. Anyhoo! We would like to warn you this is VERY pic heavy and long we will understand if you would like to come back later to read our post. Also if you are ready to read we will allow you to take a quick pee break and a chance to get a snack.
ok...Everyone with us now? Lets begin!
ok...Everyone with us now? Lets begin!
Through our good friend and fellow blogger Patience we found out that our local kennel club was hosting their annual Dog Fair. Momma was so gracious to give up her annual scrapbooking day to allow us to attend!
As per usual he had to see everyone in the car and give cockapoo kisses before we could get settled and on the road.
We got quite a few deals but the best of all was this cute little sundress that just happen to be my size.
Can you guess who else came? Why yes it is Lane (former foster dog). He got a new pop-up crate for the living room.
His boy thought it would be cool to get Lane this hamster ball....Lane and his momma both disagreed to the idea.
OOOH They had a professional photographer. The doxies on her poster are her personal pets. Aren't they cute?
Bobo and I went first to show the younger pups how its done. The photographer said we were very good doggies.
Momma couldn't get a good pic of Lane as the assistant kept getting in the way of her shot. Oh well we should have the prints soon and we will share.
...and Uncle Puppy got to meet the goldendoodle. We couldn't get over how much they looked alike. They were even close in age only about 2 weeks apart.
Uncle Puppy was a little shocked by the goldendoodles most large size. Yet soon they became friends and played while the adults talked.
Then I saw a sign for the CGC test. I had seen that Frankie passed her CGC test earlier this year so I thought well I will give it a try.
This German Shorthair pointer was practicing for the CGC test.
I was unshaken by the distraction techniques they threw my way. That stuffie was one of my distractions, it rolled around on the floor giggling. My other distraction was a clipboard "dropping". I glanced at it but remained calm.
When we had to do the walk by I got a tad nervous by the big ol' police dog. I wasn't sure if he had read of my tennis ball fiasco so I went behind momma but he seemed friendly so I sniffed him and then high tailed it to the next portion of the test.
Grandma was so impressed that she decided Bobo should try his paw at this test. He was a tad nervous with everyone watching him and had a little trouble with the sit but did good overall.
So I guess you may be wondering did we pass? Well as a matter of fact yes we both passed and now are certified Canine Good Citizens according to the PKC (Paducah Kennel Club). Momma said she is so proud of us both.
After the celebrations we headed outside to watch the agility demos. Lane and Uncle Puppy were mesmerized by the quick and agile doggies on the course.
You will never believe who we saw next! Its fellow bloggers Patience and Sam I Am. She even came up to us cause she recognized us from our blog and said hello. It was super fun to meet a blogger!
Would you look at this. Somehow Bobo was lured out of his stroller and look who took his place. Yes it is Lane! He looks mighty comfy in there. Momma even made mention that she might let Lane have the stroller. Hmm..I hope she isn't considering selling Bobo that would be a shame. At least me and my buggy are safe.
Their momma is a groomer and was doing the grooming demo. Momma was very happy to be able to see a pro at work grooming a lovely poodle. Momma even got the compliment that our grooming looked nice and asked where we were groomed at. She was quite surprised to learn that momma grooms us and is self taught.
He also brought a real bite suit.
The police officer told us all about the K-9 units and showed us his partner Trace the explosive dog.
There was even a police dog demo. That dog sure looks ready to bite if that criminal gets out of hand!
After all the demos were over they announced that anyone who would like to try their paw at agility could go over to the course.
All too soon we had done all the events at the fair and headed to grandmas work place for the picnic. Ooh I can smell the foodables from inside the car!
Grandma made the quilt for them to raffle off and the money donated is going to Project Hope a local no-kill rescue.
Then we split a hamburger with mom and listened to the music and watched all the people go by. It was a fun time!
We heard that the bake sale and quilt raffle brought in $285 in donations. That will buy lots of kibbles for the homeless doggies.
We would like to say thank you to Angie and Patience for letting us snag a few photos for this post.
Well there you have it our super Saturday. Hope no one fell asleep. Well if you did sweet dreams!
We shall resume regular posts now that momma has gotten her first tests of the semester out of the way. Thank Dog!
Winded Wags and Licks,
Note from the momma: I am so proud of my girl. She had a terrible start to her life and to make the changes she has made in the 7 years we have had her and at almost 10 years old get her CGC is amazing. It really goes to show you that with training, love and quite a few treats one "useless" dog can turn into a loved and obedient doggie! I am so proud of my Mollie JO!!!
