Yesterday was such a fabulous day!! We got up, mom and dad showered and got dressed and took me for my walk. Then we had to pack up all of our things! The hotel we were staying at messed up our reservations! When mom and dad first made it our reservations it was way back in January. After that the hotel was bought by new owners. They brought in all new staff and many of the reservations got messed up- including ours. Our hotel is two hotels in one! One side is the Eisenhower which is where we stayed the first two nights and the other side is the Aspire which is where we are now. We had to check out of the Eisenhower and then go and check in at the Aspire.The Aspire said our room wouldn't be ready until noon so daddy put all our things back into the car. After that we walked over to the Allstar for the festivities. First we had to register. It was very organized and much better that last year. Mo and dad got greyhound wristbands to wear. We checked in early so mom and dad took me the the off leash play area. The rule there is that all dogs have to wear muzzles. I don't like wearing muzzles at all but rules are rules. There was only one other dog to play with but I went in with mom and dad. I rubbed on the fence, I rubbed on the ground, but I couldn't get the muzzle off. I really didn't feel much like playing.WE went back inside and sat in the lunch room until the doors opened.A nice man came and told us we could go in. All I can say was WOW!! You should have seen the rows and rows of booths. It was beautiful!! We went to all the booths!! Mom signed up for an art class (that is today) and she met the artist ho will be teaching it. Mom was looking thought her art work and found one with 3 greyhounds running in front of the pyramids!! Mom made a rule with herself that she would look at everything before buying anything. She had worked hard to save up her spending money. After looking at everything mom knew what she would buy. She had always wanted a greyhound statue and found the perfect one. It is heavy!! It is made out of concrete. Mom paid for it and they put a bag over the statue's head with mom's name on it. Next mom and dad did the raffle entries. The winners will be drawn today! Wish us luck!! Next, mom went back to buy the art work and last she bout a really cool papermache/wire greyhound that looks like me!!! Then she bought something special for my Facebook boyfriend, Lucien, who lives in England. Then she was out of money!! BOL
It was now after noon so we went back to check in to our new room. I didn't want to leave but mom promised we would be back. We checked in and brought our stuff to the new room. WOW!!! It was a much nicer room! It even had a flat screen, high def TV!! We rode back to the Allstar with the car so mom and dad could pick up mom's statue.A nice lady held my leash so mom could help daddy. The statue is sitting in the back seat on the floor behind daddy! It fit perfect. After that we went to some talks. we walked around again and daddy bought my a rack for my leashes and coats. Then we saw one more lecture and the place closed for the day.

Mom and dad went out for dinner. When they came back we got into the car and drove into town. We went on a special doggie ghost tour! Our tour guide was very good. I listened to all her stories and followed right behind her when we walked along. We didn't see any ghosts but one lady got some orbs on her camera. daddy took pictures too. We will see what comes out when we make the pictures bigger.
More tomorrow!!
