Mom was up really early this morning and gathering up stuff. Right away I noticed my pack, collar lead, bait bag and other stuff. Then mom loaded me and the walker in the car. We went and picked up my friend Meadow’s mom, but Meadow did not get to come along. We then drove for a while and when we got out of the car I heard lots of dogs barking. Mom used her new disability parking permit so we would not have to walk as far. Mom then got me suited up and got the walker out of the car. We no more started to walk and ran into a man with a Norwich terrier. The man was very nice and knew my breeder, and his little dog was very handsome. Mom and her friend chatted with the man, but I was working so I could not visit. It was hard as he looked like all the dogs I grew up with as well as my real mother. The judging of Norwich did not start until 9:00 so we walked around the vendor’s booths. Mom and her friend oood and aaaahhd over stuff. We then watched the terriers being shown. I kept seeing all the little dogs running by me and I wanted to join in. Mom kept having me focus on her and I did very well. Then we went and did some more shopping. Mom saw some stuff she wanted but decided to do all the shopping later. It was then time to watch the beagles, as that is what my friend Meadow is. Once that was done we went to look at these beautiful collars for hounds. Mom wanted me to have something wider on my neck that she could slip on and off. They were beautiful but the best part is there was a big bone to chew on and a bowl of water. I think they were for her dogs but she said they could share with me. Mom and the lady kept interrupting my chewing to try on all kinds of collars. Mom decided on real nice red leather one with silver hearts. Mom said it looks kind of western. The lady thought I looked good in the rhinestone one but I am not that kind of girl. Then at another booth mom found leather and chain martingale collars but they did not have blue in my size, so they made one for me. Mom also bought some of the paw wax for when I go to malls and stores with slippery floors. I also got a lamb ear mmmmm. What a long fun day. The walker helped mom but she is still sore and wore out. Mom is going to take pictures of my new collars and post them but probably not until tomorrow.
