Dog Fair

OMD!!! You will NOT believe what a fun day me and Stanley had today!!  We went to a Dog Fair!  We never went to one before.
OK, there was this one part that was NOT fun.  Stanley got his toenails cut.  Our regular fur stealers were there and  Stanley needed it cuz last time they left him long.  But after that was a blast!
Stanley met this French girl.  He sniffed her and said in his most low voice, "I like your paws".
We saw so many different dogs!  There isn't enough room to show you them all.
This little guy really liked me.
After we said hello to the vendors the thing we did next was so fun there are NOT words to explain.  So I will show you.  It was a Course-A-Lure!
This is Stanley taking off through the first gate.
This is me as I go around the first corner.  There are lots of turns, tunnels, jumps, hoops, and everything to go through.  
I'm coming up to a little tunnel.  I was FAST!  I ran the first time all by myself and was NOT scared at all.  I KNEW what to do!
Another corner.  Mom said it was hard getting pictures since I was moving so fast (and she was pretty far away from me).
 This next part you will have to look really close cuz it is hard to see.  It was the funnest because me and Stanley raced over these roller jump thingies.  Of course I was in front cuz I am Murphy Bolt!!
Can you see us coming?  The judges were watching us. They liked Stanley's ears.
You can see I have the lead on Stanley.  "Eat my dust!" I barked back at him.
This is a close up of the thingies we jumped over.
Then we went flying around another section and finally through a hoop to the finish.
This was the end, through the hoop and into the finish area.
I got to do the whole course 3 times and Stanley did it 2 times.  I was supposed to only do it two times but Stanley wanted me to go with him on his turns so I ended up getting an extra time.  It was so much fun!!  And that isn't all either!

We got to go to the off leash area and play fetch!  It was a VERY nice dog park. There were a whole bunch of new furiends there too!
After we got done doing all that we were pretty tired so we decided to get into the pool for a cool down.
The more the merrier!

We had so much fun we cannot believe how lucky we are!  We heard our pawrents talking about something called "dock diving" and mom said we might be able to try it out later this summer.  Hurray!

Goose, we saw your twin there and he ripped through the course mighty fast! It was in the newspaper but a tiny article. We think there might be a bigger article tomorrow since the newspaper person was there when I ran through.

I always see other blogs featuring stuff like this and am envious we don't have anything like that here. It looks like you had a really fun day!

The Girl Next Door Drinks and Swears said...

Hey doods. I have fallen very behind on my blog reading (and writing). School is out for summer now so I hope things are a little slower paced for a while.

You guys are always going on cool adventures! I don't let Autumn and Oliver read your blog because they would be jealous.

That looked like so much fun. Lucky you guys. We had a fun run in our park yesterday and the humans hogged the whole park grrrrr. We should have something like that for us doggies. Have a serene Sunday.
Best wishes Molly
