And speaking of the HSI… Mom took me to the Humane Society of Indianapolis’ Yappy Hour at a local restaurant last night. I was really hot and humid out, but we decided to brave it and just sit in the shade so we could support the HS and see some other cool pups. 100% of the proceeds went to the shelter.
There were lots of different dogs and their owners.
Here’s one that reminded me of Nala, another Rhodesian Ridgeback! She was super sweet and friendly! She even gave me kisses!
Actually, a lot of dogs gave me kisses, when I stuck my face in front of theirs. Yeah, they knew I was the boss! BOL!
When the food was FINALLY ready, we went over to get in line. Mom had to juggle holding my leash, purse, drink, and food. It wasn’t easy! But I was very good and barely pulled, except when I smelled my favorite smell…
I am never more attentive than when someone has a hot dog or bratwurst! And Mom shared her brat with me! Can we go back there sometime, Mom? That was sure yummy!
(Thanks to Gizmo's dad for several of these pics!)
Mom took me to Woofstock on Saturday! It’s the big fundraising event for the Humane Society that I came from! They even gave me a cool bandana to show that I was a rescue pup from there (the green one. The other one, PetSmart stuck on me when I visited their booth).
There were lots of booths set up for various vendors, and mom took home lots of goodie bags full of treats and toys for me!
Here’s my friend Gizmo chowing down on some yummy treats that they were kind enough to leave out for us!
My best pal Sandy showed up not long after we arrived!
We met up with several of my pack from the Bark Park! Thankfully, Gizmo’s dad took pictures, since my mom forgot her camera, and only had her iphone with us. He took some great ones of us on the mile walk.
Here's me and Buddy:
And Gizmo and me (and Sandy behind me):
And me trying to get mom to walk faster!
And here’s (most of) our Bark Park group at the finish line!
There were all sorts of dogs, from giant-sized to tiny!
There were a couple Blood Hounds, courtesy of the State Sheriff’s department. One was a working dog, the other was just a puppy in training! My mom GUSHED over the Blood Hound puppy! And you can’t tell here, but he was exactly my size. Mom said he’d be surpassing me pretty soon though.
Here he is with Gizmo:
After a couple hours of it, I was ready to go home though!
When I got home, I barely made it in the door before collapsing in tired bliss.
Oh, I also wanted to let some of you know that I'm not able to leave comments on many of your blogs, for some reason now. All of those with comment apps other than what is generic for blogger, doesn't let me leave a comment. I don't know what's going on. Mom is looking into it.
