What a good day I had today! First I woke up to find that my diary was one of the daily picks once again! Thank you Dogster for that honor. We left the house early this morning as mom, dad and I had to work at the MayDOG booth at the Farmer's Market. It was the perfect day. Not too hot and a slight breeze. Today was they day they were opening the new dog park. Mom and dad have been working to get a dog park in our town for the last 5 years. It was a long time coming, but today was the day. The grand opening was at 1PM so we worked the farmer's market until noon. Mom signed up 8 people for memberships. She also sold several dog toys and got some donation money. My friend Granite came to help out. She is a Burmese Mountain Dog. She knows how to pull a cart and walked around the market with her dad a few times to generate interest in our booth. I got to meet some very nice people and their dogs too. I also let several children pet me. I am getting better with kids all the time. Granite had a special cooling blanket to help her keep cool. Let she me wear it while she was walking around, pulling her cart. I liked it. After the farmer's market we went over to the hardware store to buy some dog food. They sell it there. They are cheaper than the pet store. They don't have the fancy flavors, but they do have the basic ones. I like going there because dogs are welcome. I got a cookie! After that we headed home to rest for a few minutes, and then it was off to the big grand opening. Kate Hogan who is our local representative in congress came to cut the ribbon. They had a nice speech. They thanked mom and dad and the other volunteers and board members. Fred Levy was there to take photographs. He has taken several of me over the years. My favorite one is with me and Santa Claus. I was SO happy to see my friend, Rosco there. It was nice having another Greyhound to hang out with. About 10 dogs came to play in the park. I was the very first dog to walk into the park! That was SO cool!!! It was a nice shady area. They had a water station there so I was also the first dog to take a drink. I still love my yard the best but it is nice to have a new,fun place I can go and play with other dogs.
