There was a doggy-themed event called Paws in the Park held last Sunday at the Greenfield District. It was a good thing that we brought along both Summer and Moby to the event — each dog had highlights to their afternoon while we were there. Our dogs met a couple of new friends i.e., Cymer’s doggies. For Summer, she also met a lot of familiar faces. Her friend, Walt, was there along with his humans and they introduced us to ice cream for doggies. Joy from Pawsitive Education was there and, as usual, Summer was very excited to greet her. Kris gave her a box of treats.
As for Moby, we met some of the core volunteers of Help MAS by chance. I think the last time they saw Moby in person was at the six-legged walkathon event nearly a year ago. It was a nice reunion. They saw how handsome Moby has become, and I guess seeing rescue dogs doing so well after they’ve been adopted is something that validates the work they’ve put in.
One of the things we gave feedback on about the event is how much we liked the selection of booths that were available. There was a lot (for humans too), and there was variety! There was a mobile grooming station parked right near the entrance. Karen of The Dog Park and Joy of Pawsitive Education both had booths to promote their services. EzyDog was there. There was a photo booth and a pet portrait booth. CARA and PART were also there to rally support to their causes.
And knowing how food-driven our doggies are, of course, there were booths that sold dog treats. Whole Pet Kitchen was there so we grabbed the chance to buy some ox chews for the doggies, and those liver muffins that my dogs find so yummy. One of the booths was selling some Blue Dog Bakery products. (We gave the doggies the Softies (peanut butter flavor) that we got from Kris when we got home, and the dogs love it!) Ice Cream Pups was also there selling ice cream for doggies. Summer shamelessly devoured her share, and also the left over ice cream of Moby and Cymer’s doggies. With all the treats that came their way, I’d say it must’ve been a pretty good day for our doggies!
