A New Beginning

I was used as an advertising model again! Mom got an E-mail from my favorite pet store. When she opened the E-mail there I was in the costume that I had won the Monster Bark contest a few years ago. I'll post a picture of it.

Today we went to Woofstock. This was the first time we had ever been. It was close to our town so it was only a short drive. I got all excited when I saw the other dogs. We paid the admission and went in. Mom was drawn to the raffle table. She bought some tickets and put them in the things she wanted to win. daddy noticed a big sign on the fence that said "Costume Contest"! Mom had checked the website to see if they were having a costume contest but it was never posted that they were. Mom made daddy drive all the way back home to get my costume! Daddy was a little mad at first, and he never gets mad at mom. We were back to Woofstock in plenty of time though. It took less than an hour. We walked all around the fair and saw all the booths. They were most of the same booths we have seen before at other events, but it was still fun. Dirty Hairy's had a booth. That is where I go to get my bath. Also my vet was there. I'm glad I was feeling well. We also stopped at a greyhound rescue called Amazing Greys. I liked seeing all the other dogs the best. Finally it was time for the costume contest. Mom dressed me up in my Isis costume. Everyone kept thinking I was Cleopatra. I don't know why they always think that. One lady thought I was Nefertiti. And older woman kept petting me and messing up my wig! Mom kept trying to fix it and the woman would mess it up again! There were a lot of other dogs in the competition. I would say there were at least 10 or 12. Some had really cool outfits too. I couldn't believe it when they said I had won! I got the best prizes ever!! I got a really nice dog blanket to sleep on, 4 different toys and a huge metal can to keep all my dry kibble in! I liked the big can a lot. Ben is always ripping up my dog food bag and spilling my kibble all over the floor. Now it will stay safe and fresh. The can even says "Dog food" on it! I like my new toys too!

We stopped off at the pet store after Woofstock to get food for the next two weeks. Next weekend will be very busy so mom wanted to stock up on food. When we got home mom and dad went out into the yard. Of course I went along too. Daddy started to dig a big hole in the ground. I helped daddy dig! I did a good job. Daddy dug a very deep hole and he put a plastic pail in the hole. Mom told me the pail was for my dog waste. There are special enzymes that will break it all down into harmless substances. You add water, enzymes and my contribution to the pail. I though that was pretty cool! Daddy took some of extra dirt and fill in under the fence where there were holes. Mom and dad wanted to make the yard safe so Ben could go outside. Ben always tries to get outside every chance he gets. With the high fence and supervision, now he can go outside sometime. He was a happy cat. He stayed in the yard and walked all around. I went into a play bow and chased him a bit. I was very gentle and knew I was just playing. We touched noses. It was such a fun day!

Later in the week mom got a phone call from Buddy Dog. I won a dog feeding station in the raffle! Mom said she would pick it up within the next few weeks and they said they would hold it for her in the office!
