Yesterday we met our good friends Duffy, Georgie and Jackson at Purina Farms. Pepsi and Cindy Lou came too so we got to visit with them again.
The Canine Games or Doggy Olympics at Purina Farms is an annual event put on by the Samoyed Rescue Club. We went last year and enjoyed it so much we planned to come again.
When we arrived I was pretty excited to be there. There were already lots of people with their dogs there. We registered and mom bought tickets so that I could participate in the events. We found Duffy and Georgie and Jackson right away and went to sign up for the lure chasing event. Last year it was too muddy so they cancelled it so this was going to be first time I would do this. I loved it. I immediately knew I was supposed to chase that white thing. It was great fun! I ended up doing it 3 times! Other events we participated in were Agility, Tricks and Manners and running, were they clocked your speed. We also did the Purina Farms Halloween Costume Contest. Duffy won 1st Place! He was adorable in his sailor suit. Georgie won 3rd Place for her Hawaiian Princess costume.
We all won gold medals for our participation in the events.
After Purina Farms we went out to eat with our families at a restaurant that would allow them to bring dogs to eat on the patio. We had a real nice time there.
We spent one more night at the hotel. Today we are going to go to St. Charles and walk around the shops and eat lunch there and then drive home. I have had a wonderful time on my vacation, but I do eat and sleep better in my own home.
I can't wait until next year to go again!
