The Whisker Walk!

Friday night was the last night for my medication. I have been only on short walks all week. My toe is slowly starting to feel better. On Saturday I went to the pet store with mom and dad. The store was out of the kind of cat food that mom usually buys for Ben and charlie. I did get a great cookie and flossie though. That always makes me happy.
Yesterday was the Whisker Walk at the Lancaster Fair Grounds. It is about a 30 minute ride in the car to get there. The weather didn't look too good. It was cloudy and heavy rain was predicted. The fair was rain or shine so mom and dad decided to take me anyway. We got there early so we were in the second row of the parking lot. Mom made me wear my rain coat just in case and she had umbrellas for her and daddy. I was still limping a little bit so mom told me I couldn't do the actual walk. Walking around the fair grounds would be more than enough walking for me. I was fine with that. Despite the weather not being the best, there were still a lot of dogs and people there. We got to walk around and get free samples and see all the booths and rescue groups. One booth was selling pet deodorizing products. Daddy recognized the smell of it! It was the same stuff they had given mom and dad at Ben and Charlie's old vets. The stuff worked better than anything mom and dad have ever tried before and daddy had been trying to find it in all the pet stores and even Online! Daddy was happy and we bought 2 bottles plus laundry detergent to get the smell out of my beds and blankets. The products were heavy so we made a quick trip back to the car to put the stuff in the trunk. The rest of the fair was very nice. I even got to meet a donkey and a mule! I also made friends with a couple of Great Danes and saw my greyhound friend, Lilly. We stayed about 2 hours in all. Mom entered the raffle drawing but it doesn't look like she won anything. My paw did OK and I was happy that I got to go. On the way home, we took a detour to go to the other pet store we sometimes go to. It is called Especially For Pets. Mom wanted to see if they had the cat food. They did! (but not very much of it) Mom grabbed 8 cans. While mom was buying the cat food, daddy and I were talking to a girl at a table. She gave me free samples of a new food called Addiction. Mom buys me canned Addiction which has bison in it. This was dehydrated packets that you mix with water. The girl at the table said it was like eating a raw diet. Mom made me one of the packets last night. Mom and dad thought it smelled awful, but I LOVED it! It was a meat I had never had before- some animal from a place called Australia. Anyway, I told mom to get me more. I hope she does.
I really hope I can run again soon. This toe of mine is a real pain! More later!

Dang, I hate it when the humans de-stink what we work so hard to make smelly! Sounds like a fun day though - hope your paw feels better soon. I think the stinkier the food is, the more doggies love it. BOL!
