Yesterday we went to Greyhound Friend's Fall Open House! Usually we always work at the silent auction and raffle table, but this time mom and dad felt they couldn't make the commitment. We are moving to our new house on Friday and there is still so much more work to do. Mom and dad have been busy packing all our stuff and throwing out what we don't need. It was a beautiful day and I knew where I was the moment we pulled in the driveway. The field was full of cars. There where more people and dogs there than ever before. They had a huge yard sale going on. This was the first year they did this. Mom found a dinning table and chairs that she wanted very much. Daddy reminded her that money was too tight because of the move. Mom was sad but agreed that the timing just wasn't right. Mom and dad took me to see the vet there. A vet volunteers her time every open house to answer questions. My neck has been bothering me for the last week or so. Mom noticed that I kept scratching at my collar. She looked and saw that I have a rash on my neck where my collar goes. I haven't worn my collar now for about 4 days. Mom put all my ID tags on my harness. I always walk with my harness any way. It keeps me from pulling and doesn't cause me to choke. I love my harness and I will actually put my head right into it when I go for my walk. The vet thought it was something called a "hot Spot" Mom and dad are getting me some aloe vera cream. Next we walked around and looked at all the booths. Mom finally got to meet Cindy Maxwell. She is mom's Facebook friend. She is a greyhound! Cindy walked right up to mom and said "Hi". Maybe I should have a Facebook page too? Soon the dog show started so mom got me ready for the costume contest. Once again everyone was taking my picture. This one was judged by judges. I won! I got a really cool squeaky soccer ball, a milk bone, a big blue ribbon and a $15 gift certificate to Petco! I am going to buy a pooper scooper with my prize money. It will come in handy for mom and dad to clean up my new yard. I have enough toys and I want to keep my yard clean. We entered the raffle but I don't think we won anything this time. That is OK. I had a fun day.
