My busy weekend!

Well, furiends, I had a super-duper busy weekend! Have any of you figured out what I did yet?? I gave you these two hints on Friday:

Okay, I know you can't figure it out, so I'll tell you. Surprise, I actually did TWO things!! The first thing was on Saturday, when Momma and I went down into Dallas for the North Texas Irish Festival! This is a pawesome annual event, and Momma's always talked about bringing me along, but she never did. But this year's theme was "Erin Go Bark", and they really went all out with dog themes and rescue groups. So I told Momma I HAD to go. I had just the outfit to wear!

 It was a beeYOUtiful day. Sunny and highs in the 70s! Momma and I had so much fun wandering around, listening to the live music and looking at the vendor booths.

I also got to meet my good buddy and fellow LBR alum, Shamrock! Shammy is well-known to LBR's Facebook fans as Dr. Shammy, Medicine Boxer. He's almost as good at dressing up as I am.

This is Shammy with his momma, Auntie Debra.

I also got to meet a cute little Corgi who had a kilt like mine! The same place made it as mine, Castle Canine Creations. They made his to match his daddy's kilt. How cool!

Phew, what an exhausting day!! I napped hard all night, because I knew Sunday would be even more action. Momma and I were heading down to the McKinney town square for the annual Krewe of Barkus! This is a Mardi Gras celebration for the dogs. There's a costume contest and doggy parade around the town square, where pawticipants throw out beads, candy, and dog treats. There's a different theme every year, and this year's was "Barkus Goes Back in Time: A Salute to the Doggone Good Decades 1950s - 1980s". So Momma and I were hippies!

We almost didn't go, because that 70 degree weather suddenly turned into upper 20s, and it was sleeting!! But Barkus let us know that they were moving things indoors to a nearby location, so we went and had fun. It was close quarters, but I like being everybody's furiend!

I hope you had a grreat weekend too. Peace out!
