Today was the annual Bark In The Park for the Windy City Canine Rescue.
I wish I could take all my personal dogs but I have
Skid and Try got to go this time.
And I figured, since we are going to a rescue fundraiser, I better bring the closest thing I have to a rescue, Skid.
They didn't disappoint me. Kids, dogs, loudspeakers. Not a thing bothered them.
They spent most of their day hoping all the dog people in attendance would fork over the treats they all seemed to have in their pockets.
At one point, someone even fed Skid a frozen yogurt for dogs. Peanut butter flavored.
Try enjoyed meeting the dogs who were still puppies, but like him were a little on the large size.
Some of the demos were put on by our friends,
and we enjoyed cheering them on.
(Leo is only pretending to be a sport dog, he's actually a serious herding dog)
Other demos were inspiring,
We appreciated them coming to show us their stuff after they had so recently been working in the Alberta flood zones.
Even when it was time to pack up and go home, things were still entertaining.
I gotta get me one of those carts! That could be really useful.
But finally, it was time to kiss everyone goodbye,
and go back to farm life.
