Bark in the Park...

For the record, I did not Bark in the Park this year!

Instead, I:

sniffed...

Freckles the Dog
One of five nice minutes...

grumbled...

Freckles the Dog

hesitated...

Freckles the Dog

hid...

Freckles the Dog

acted pathetically...

Freckles the Dog

and became soaked!!

Freckles the Dog

That's right my friends! I did not get to meet a ton of new doggie friends, I did not get to watch or learn the art of Flyball, and I did not get to eat tons of tasty treats! Instead, I had to wear my raincoat, run from tree to tree, and hope that the rain gods stopped pouring water on us - they did not listen!! We were at the park for 2 hours and we only got a few minutes of clear skies before the heavens opened and rain poured down! :-(

I do not like the rain...I practically refuse to move in the rain...which meant that Domeek got covered in my muddy paw prints, but I just told her that's what happens when you show up in a light covered jacket! ;-)

Sadly Bark in the Park, an event that has never seen rain, got rained out on Saturday!! When we were leaving almost all the vendors were packing up, most had lost quite a bit of their edible products...I offered to help out and eat them, but they all politely refused!

It was soooooo sad! Oh well, Domeek says that there's always next year!

I just hope this isn't an omen for the rest of Fall

  4. Now that's a bummer, it rained on last year's Bark in the Park too; we didn't go this year though. I think those vendors could have built some nice word of mouth by handing out treats to the disappointed puppies!

  5. Aw, we are sorry it got rained out. We would like to suggest next time that happens that Domeek just lets you play in the mud!

    Your Pals,

  6. It rained all day at our CS Barks Dog Festival. We did not set up our booth since it was raining during our set up time. So hopefully next year we will have better weather. We hope you do to.
