:D Today was Woofstock! It was so much fun. Mom dressed Chico up in his tuxedo and me up in my wedding dress and veil and we went as "bride and groom" for the Best Dressed Contest. Shhhh! Don't let Murphy know! =x Taz came with us, too, but he's not too fond of dressing up, so he went in the nude. BOL.
We had a blast! Mom bought lots of new clothes for us, received lots of free dog treats, and we got to eat pieces of the Woofstock 10th birthday cake! Everyone seemed amazed with my dress. I kept hearing, "LOOK AT THE BRIDE," every five seconds, which was then followed by, "AAAW! AND THERE'S THE GROOM! WE NEED A PICTURE *NOW*!" Needless to say, I was stuck posing for pictures every place I went. It's exhausting being so glamorous. *sigh*
By the time the fashion show had rolled around, I was lying down on my back in my nice dress on the grass. ;_; Mom got me up and told me that the fashion show was starting and I shouldn't get my dress all grass-stained. Poo!
The fashion show made up for it though. :) When we were waiting for them to call our name, the channel 10 news station kept the camera on Chico and I for quite a while! The Wichita Eagle also took some pictures of us. Mom's going to be keeping an eye out on the news tonight and on the paper in the morning.
Anyhow, I was talking about the fashion show. I got really excited when I heard the announcer call up Chico and I's name! Chico and I raced out on to the main stage, but made sure to walk together to impress the audience. Mom then stopped in the middle so the judges could get a nice look at us, while she did a minor adjustment to my veil. Mom then let us rest out in the audience with Grandma, where I plomped down and went to sleep for a few minutes. Mom was really impressed with the other competitors. Her personal favorite was the Great Dane that was dressed up in a shirt that said, "Michael Vick Patrol." He was dragging a cardboard thing shaped and drawn to be Michael Vick's jersey, and his mom was dressed up in a cop outfit that said, "Idiot Patrol." It was funny! She was actually kind of disappointed they didn't win anything.
After everyone showed off their outfits, the lady on stage started announcing the winners. Imagine my shock when they announced that Chico and I had won third place! Chico and I were so happy to go up and get our prize. It was wonderful!
Other than the fashion show and dressing up, we had a lot of fun elsewhere, too. Mom and Grandma took Taz, Chico, and I on the one-mile Mutt Strut. It's a really nice walk through the Sedgewick County Park. We also saw a lot of people that we know. We saw a lot of people that mom volunteers with at the Humane Society, people from the vet's office, people from restaurants where Mom and Grandma eat, people from Chisolm Creek, which is where Mom has boarded some of us before when she had to go on trips where she couldn't take us, and some vendors that she knew from last year. So many people, so little time!
Taz, Chico, and I all slept the whole way home and have been dead tired since. :D We all had such a great day and can't wait until Woofstock 11!
