Bark in the Park

Yesterday Momma and I went to a "Bark in the Park" Howl-o-ween festival. It was so much fun! They had totally pawsome doggy demonstrations, like agility dogs, Frisbee dogs, and police dogs. There were lots of booths with information about rescue groups and doggie services. All of them, of course, gushed over yours truly. And why wouldn't they? Look at how hawt I am.

Yes, ladies, I'm a completely authentic Scot. Nothing under my kilt but my furs!

Thanks to everyone for voting for my costume. The Scotsman won paws down! I had a lot of folks fussing over me, but I learned that the hat (it's called a "tam") is essential for the costume. When I wasn't wearing it, people kept asking if I was supposed to be a Catholic schoolgirl!! Momma said "it's a kilt, not a skirt" about a million times. But as soon as the tam went back on, everyone knew I was Scottish again. Go figure. But I won THIRD PLACE in the costume contest (I totally should've won), so that was fun!

Even better was getting to meet other dogs. I met lots of new furiends!

"Hi deres! Will you be my furiends?"

Puggy playtime

Let's play, okay?

But the best part of the whole day?? Look who I met at the LBR table!

"Hi dere, Casey! Want to join my snack?"

"I'm a gentleman pirate!"

 That's right, Miss Aspen and BABY AUSTIN!! I finally gots to meet Baby Austin in da furs at last!

 "This is so much better than Momma passing on smell mail, right Baby Austin?"
"How do you stand that flashy beast following you everywhere, Casey?"

What a fun day! I'm so glad Momma and I were able to go. After we got back, both of us curled up on the couch for a long nap. I think that might've been my favorite part of all.

  7. It sounds like a perfect day! I'm glad your Bark in the Park had much better weather than ours. I am SO glad you decided to where the kilt!


    1. Wear, not where! Sheesh! I've been up too late this weekend!

    You TOTALLY should have taken first place with your Scotsman costume -- rest assured, you're #1 in our book!

  9. I always wondered if they wore anything under their kilts.. I mean Mel Gibson flipped his up and he didn't have on boxer briefs, but of course he is a bit bat poop crazy... so we didn't know.
