We go to the Farmer's Market every weekend, but today was different! Mom was running all over the house gathering things up and brining them to the car. I knew something was up. We all hopped into the car and daddy drove us there. We waited for a few minutes and then Mollie's mom and dad came. Daddy set up my exercise pen and mom filled my water bowl. I knew we would be there for a while. Mom set up a little table. Mom just became a certified dog trainer. She already has two doggie clients and wants to get more. She had brochures and business cards to hand out to people. Mom and dad were also helping out Mollie's mom and the MayDOG group. They are all working hard to bring a fenced in dog park to my town. Today was a big day. Another trainer, who knows mom, was holding a safety workshop for kids and dogs. MayDOG was also announcing an award to the most dog friendly business in Maynard. It was a 3 way tie! Daddy made the announcement and handed out the awards! He did a good job. Mom met a lot of people and gave away 15 brochures and some business cards. They also had a raffle basket, so mom bought 6 tickets. We were there for 3 1/2 hours. I didn't mind. My pen was in the shade under an apple tree. I also had a rooster keeping me company! He was in a cage beside me. I had my blanket and mom bought me 2 peanut butter cookies. People came over and pet me and mom and dad came over to make sure I was OK. I met other dogs and watched everything going on. After we left, mom and dad brought me home and then they went to see the new Harry Potter movie at the IMAX theatre. Mom told me dogs couldn't go. That was OK, I was tried anyway. When mom and dad got home, there was a message on our answering machine. I had won the raffle basket!!! Mom and dad grabbed a quick bite to eat and then we drove to Mollie and Kiera's house to get my prize. We also went for a long walk with Mollie, Kiera and her mom (about 3 miles). It was so much fun!! When we got back home, mom opened all my goodies. I have a new squeaky pepper, a dog bowl, a bandana, some treats, a poop bag holder that goes on my leash, and a gift certificate for a free dog wash! COOL!!! What a great day I had! I'm tired now!!
