On Friday mom dressed me up in my new costume. It is all ready except for the wings. Mom says I can't tell yet what this costume will be. It is a secrete for now. Daddy took pictures. I will be in two contests in September. Mom wants to try it out and see what the reaction will be. The ultimate goal is to win Gettysburg best in show next year. This year I won funniest but not best in show.

It was a fun weekend! On Saturday we took a ride to NH to visit with Grampy. We went to celebrate Father's day a day early. When Mom had signed us up to do the Bark In The Park walk, she didn't realize that the walk was on Father's Day. We didn't want Grampy to miss his special day, so we went early. We spent the whole afternoon visiting. Mom brought me 3 cookies and I ate all of them on Grampy's rug! It was OK because daddy vacuumed up all the crumbs I left. Mom and dad took Grampy out to dinner. Once again I had to stay home. I don't know why dogs can't go to restaurants. When they got back, mom and dad took me for a nice walk. We went to see the chickens again. They didn't come to the fence this time. I think they might have been scared of me. Mom went up into Grampy's attic. She wanted to see if her old angel wings were still there. She wanted to maybe use them in my latest costume (I'm not going to be an angel). They were there but they were too old. The feathers were all falling off! We took them home but daddy wants to throw them away. Mom agrees. They are falling apart.

Today was the Bark In The Park dog walk for Baypath Humane Society. Mom worked really hard to fund raise a lot of money. Daddy was at work and someone said the company wanted to sponsor mom. The company gave her $500 for Baypath Humane Society!!! Mom was SO happy. That put her in the second position for the most money raised by an individual. Mom got $975 for the shelter! The top person raised $1,375. The event was held at a beautiful state park not far from Greyhound Friends. We got there a little early and walked around a bit. They had some booths and vendors. Mom went to register and gave a lady her registration she had printed from the computer. The woman got all excited and said mom was the top fund raiser! Mom explained she was in second place but the woman told mom that the person in first place worked for the shelter so she didn't count! She told mom she was getting a prize! Wow!!! We looked at all the booths and then the walk began. It was a nice day in the lower 70's. It was a perfect day for a walk. I made some friends along the way. The walk went by a lake so I got to take a dip and get a drink. We walked for about a mile or so. When we got back to the event we watched a few dog agility demonstrations. Then they had a contest. daddy took me into the human/dog look alike contest! We won!! We didn't get anything though. It was just in fun. I was getting hot so daddy found me a cool water fountain. It was like humans drink from but it was especially made for dogs! It had running water and everything. The best part was it was nice and cold. I took several drinks. Finally they announced mom's name. I went up with her. Mom got a gift certificate for a 14 pound bag of dog food. They also announced the top team. Everyone clapped for us. After one of the shelter's board members came up to thank us. It was a fun day. I'm tired now. I think I will take a nap!
