Today we got up early and ate breakfast in our room at the hotel. We checked out and drove to Purina Farms. The hotel was very close so we were there in about 15 minutes. Purina Farms is huge and we were very impressed. We registered and bought tickets for the events and Georgie and Jackson and Duffy and their familes arrived and we went to do the events. We also saw Penelope and Sawyer and Max and Sandy there. They are all on Dogster.
It turned out that the lure coursing event had been cancelled but there was plenty to do. We did not do everything but we did the agility course, we were timed running, flyball, frisbee and manners and tricks. We also dressed up and competed in the costume contest. Georgie and Jackson won prizes for their pirate costumes. Duffy had an adorable sailor outfit. I wore my bee costume. Jackson unfortunately hurt the pad on one of his paws and could not do some of the events.
We all received ribbons and medals and certificates. It was a great day and we hated saying goodbye to our friends but we had to head home. I took some nice naps on the ride home. I hope we can go again next year. I love visiting my St. Louis Dogster friends.
Bailey, I liked reading about your wonderful trip. I went to a special event yesterday. It was a fund raiser for PAWS shelter, where my mom found me. It was lots of fun. First we had to work thought, by walking and walking and walking on the path in Grant Park. But then it was all fun. I got a full body massage, took a lesso on the agility course, got a doggie teeshirt that says "bacon" on the back, and met a Great Dane who is 6 times as tall as me, and when he jumped up into the air, wow, I think he is as tall as those Chicago Bulls basketball players!
You trip sounds wonderful Bailey! To be able to put all your Agility training into action is pawsome! Congratulations!
Glad that you had such a great time on your trip! :) Binx
