I just got back from the New England Pet Expo!! It was fun. My corn was acting up again so I had to wear a bootie to help me walk comfortably. The expo is indoors and the floors are hard. This is one of the biggest pet fairs of the year! They have SO many booths, speakers and other events. Shorty Rossi from Pit Boss was there again this year. His dog, Hercules was sick and at the vets so he couldn't come. Mom was second in line to meet him!! Last year mom was distracted by a raffle table at the entrance to the expo and had to wait in line. This year she went directly to where shorty was! we listened to some of the lectures. One was about teaching your dog to walk on a loose leash. The trainer was terrible and mom got SO mad. She was jerking dogs around the stage and even recommended choke and prong collars. Mom literally wanted to slap her! She didn't of course. We also watched a first aid demo which was good and of course went to Shorty's talk. I got to hang out at 2 greyhound adoption booths!!! The first one was called Greyhound Options Inc. They had a brand new dog bed. I walked right into the booth and made myself at home in the bed! The people working the booth got a kick out of it and told mom and dad that I could hang out there for a while. When mom and dad returned they literally had to pick me up out of that bed. They were raffling the bed off, so mom and dad bought me a ticket. Next I got to hang out at Greyhound Friend's booth with my brother, Fast. I had so much fun that I didn't want to leave!!! When we got back home our neighbors were having a plant sale. Mom wanted some mums for the front of our house. The neighbors had rabbits! daddy took me to see the rabbits not thinking that I could get my needle nose through the fencing!! Daddy learned real quick that I could!! Next thing anyone know I had a mouth full of rabbit fur!!! I basically just pulled the fur out of his skin. He has a bald patch now! Mom checked him over and I didn't draw any blood. Mom told the neighbor that if the bunny had vet bills that we would pay them. I am in the dog house!!!! Mom said it was really kind of daddy's fault in a way. He didn't think I could reach the bunny. Mom was holding 2 big mums at the time and was talking to the neighbors. I am just too hard wired to be trusted around bunnies. After a short rest, mom and dad went to dinner and then daddy had to go to his mom's house to help her with a computer virus. On our way home from visiting daddy's mom, mom and dad were joking that the answering machine would be flashing and that there would be a message that I had won my bed. Sure enough!! The guy was SO funny on the machine. He said "Isis indeed won HER bed". Then he said that my brother's mom had it and would be dropping it off today. I am is such a lucky dog!!! I get my bed around noon time!!!
