It was a very busy weekend! Mom and dad didn't even get a chance to go to Farmer's Market! Saturday was Greyhound Friends Fall Open House. We were in charge of the Silent Auction table. It was a cool, rainy day. They moved us inside into the conference room. There was a greyhound there in a crate named Colleen. She kept growling and barking at me. I didn't know what her problem was. Mom set me up with my blanket and a water bowl. Daddy took me out for frequent walks. I did meet some nice people and let some of them pet me. Not many people came. We only got a few bids on the auction items. I did get my nails trimmed though. Because of the weather, I never got to enter the costume contest. Mom was a bit disappointed. 3 greyhounds did get adopted so that was nice. I was happy for them. In fact one was named Happy!

Sunday was a much nicer day. Mom put a pretty purple flowered bandana around my neck. We went to the pet store to buy food and a peanut butter cookie! Yummy!! My friend Mollie and her mom and dad came by for a visit. Mom was sad. She told me that I might not be able to see Mollie again! Mollie was leaving to go back to live with her old owner! I am really going to miss her. I'll still have Kiera for a friend. Mollie's mom said that maybe she could talk Mollie's new/old dad to bring her on some of our group walks. I hope he does. After we said a sad goodbye to Mollie, we got into the car. We were on the highway when all the traffic stopped moving. Mom said there was a bad accident up ahead. We were stuck in traffic for about a half an hour. Finally we drove by a car upside down and another that was all smashed up. Daddy read later that no one was seriously hurt. After the traffic jam, we went to the Pet Rock Festival. There were thousands of people and dogs! We went to all the booths and met some more people. I was a bit shy, but I did OK. I got to go in a small swimming pool. That was fun. My friend, Gill was there with his mom, Carla. They were with Greyhound Friends.They had a music concert too. Mom was all excited! The feature band was a band that mom was crazy about when she was a teenager. It had been 30 years since she had seen them. They were called the Bay City Rollers. Actually only one original member was there. His name was Ian. Mom still had a great time. She was singing and dancing and connected with some other ladies who were big fans too. The music was a little too loud for me, so daddy walked around a big field with me. After the concert, mom got Ian's autograph and had her picture taken with him. She was happy.
Mom called grampy when we got home. Grampy had very sad news. His cat, Smokie (I met him last weekend) had something called cancer. Grampy had to put him to sleep. Grampy really misses him. I could tell he was very sick. He couldn't eat anymore and had tumors inside of him. Mom and dad are sad too. I'm glad grampy has his other cat, Blackie to keep him company.
I'm tired now. It was a busy weekend. I still have my bandana on!
