I hope all my pup pals had a fun and safe 4th of July.
I went to a picnic with mom and dad. We left about noon and daddy drove us in the car for about an hour. We went to a brand new place where we have never been before. It was the annual Boston Vegetarian Society's 4th Of July picnic. Daddy actually drove right passed the house. There weren't any signs out or car parked on the street. Daddy had the ladies phone number so he called to make sure we were at the right place. We were! We had to walk down a path to the side of the house. They had all the tables set up inside the basement. It was nice and cool there. We were one of the first ones to arrive! Evelyn, who is the president of the BVS, brought her little dog Gigi. It was nice to have a friend. After a few minutes people started to arrive and bring food. Mom had made pasta salad. Some of the other guests brought their dogs too. Mom gave me a veggie hot dog.It was really very good! I ate the whole thing! I looked up at mom for more but she said I had eaten all. She said that if any where left over that I could have another one, but the humans ate all the rest. The humans ate and talked and I made friends with a toy poodle and a chihuahua. After mom and dad finished eating we went outside. It was hot but there was some shade in the yard and a nice breeze. We were on a lake which was very pretty. One dog was chasing a ball and swimming. I didn't go in the water as mom and dad were afraid I would go to deep again. Mom and dad met a couple from England. They were very nice. The man had my leash and he took me for a walk. We ended up going back inside for a bit. Mom and dad knew I was in good hands so they weren't worried. After awhile we came back outside again. The time really flew by fast and it was time to go. We went back inside to get our things and met a new friend named Jane. She knows Christine Dorchak of Grey2K USA!She loves greyhounds and helped to close the race tracks down in our state! She is our new Facebook friend! When we got back home, mom and I went out into the back yard. Mom needed to water the vegetable garden. All of a sudden the back gate opened and who was there but my friend, Rosco and his mom Catherine!! I couldn't believe it!! I ran around and tried to get Rosco to play with me, but I think he was tried. He just went up on the deck and wanted to come inside. It was still nice to see him. Later mom and dad went to see fireworks. I had to stay home. There were too many people and loud noise. Mom said it wasn't safe for dogs. Mom was right! Later that night I found out on Facebook that a greyhound had panicked during the fireworks and was now missing! I hope they find him.
