Today mom and dad took me to the Whisker Walk. We went last year too. It is held at the Lancaster Fairgrounds and is only about 20 minutes from our house. I got all excited the minute daddy pulled into the field to park. I could see lots of dogs getting out of cars. A group of Girl Scouts were handing out gift bags to everyone who entered the fair grounds. Mom got one for me. Mom got lots of free samples and cookies. We walked all around and went to all the different booths. Greyhound Friends were there so we spent some time visiting and helping out. Mom entered a couple of raffles. We haven't heard anything yet, but it doesn't mean we didn't win. Believe it or not, I made a raffle ticket! It was the darnedest thing!!! In our gift bag everyone got poop bags. They had several bag stations set up around the grounds for deposits. If your dog made a poop and you used the special bag, you could deposit it at the bag station and they gave you a raffle ticket! It was actually a great way to ensure people picked up after their dogs! Mom and dad waited, but I came I through! I made a raffle ticket. If we win, mom and dad will get to see a Red Sox baseball game! They had misting stations set up too. It was a water hose on the mist setting so we could get cooled off. I went twice! The sun was hot and since I am a black dog I needed a little cooling off. Mom said she would rather mist me than have me go swimming!!! I met a lot of dogs I knew today. I also met many new ones. Mom saw the "wolf" again. It was the same one she had seen at Paws In The Park. This time we got to meet him. He wasn't a wolf, he just looked like one. He had a lot of different wolf looking breeds in him- husky, German shepherd and one other one. The combination made him look just like one! He was nice. Mom got to meet a Facebook friend in person. She was helping to run a booth for becoming vegan (which both my mom and dad are). Mom was all excited. Mom and dad got human cookies. I guess it was only fair since I had a whole bag of cookies. We watched a few demonstrations for freebie chasing and fly ball. We were there about 3 hours and felt it was time to head back home. Almost time for my evening walk, so I should get ready. More later!
