Yesterday, my dog club - Mobile Bay Dog Training club -
participated in the Pet Palooza, an adoption extravanza here in Mobile. The Mobile SPCA (I volunteer for them), Animal Rescue League, Friends of the Mobile Animal Shelter and Greyhound Rescue had many, many dogs there along with vendors. Lots of dogs got new homes !
Our club spent the day entertaining the crowds with agility, rally and obedience demos. We had our range of handlers -from grey haired ladies to teenagers and everything in between... proving that age is not a handicap.
I took Ms Diva - always a crowd favorite because of her unpredictable behavior and I took the puppy, Guy, too. It was a great experience for him.. lots of barking dogs, people to visit and treats to eat... better than a dog show for socialization.
Of course, when we packed up to leave the heavens opened up and made loading the trailer a trial... we all looked like drowned rats! It was still fun.
