Thanks to my good friend and fellow pet owner Kacy, I was alerted to the coolest event of the fall. It was called Barktoberfest, and it was being held in Pittsburgh. Doggies could wear their Halloween costumes, come socialize with other pups, get some treats, have a costume contest, and be in a parade. SIGN US UP!
We got there at noon on Saturday, and things were just getting started. Already, we saw a ton of awesome doggie costumes.
Devil and Hot Dog
Scooby Doo (one of my faves!)
By the time the judging started, there was a pretty good crowd, about 70 doggies were registered.
One of the coolest parts was the costume judging. One of the judges was Pittsburgh t.v. celebrity Sally Wiggin. We talked to her during judging, and a little bit after. She was raised with a doxie, so she has quite a fondness for them, and she just loved Dex (who doesn't). She was so friendly and awesome!
Finally it was time to announce the winners of the costume contest. The first place winner was a doggie dressed like Troy Polamalu.
Second place went to a teeny tiny doggie dressed like a Caterpillar.
All the doggies looked adorable, and everyone was so well behaved. Dex did great, no barking, no roughhousing, he definitely got some treats afterwards, and even got to go have a play date with his friend Linus.
I am not quite ready to reveal Dexter's entire costume to you yet, so here is another peak, this is a picture of us from that day.
I do not know what it is about her, but I simply love my mommy with all my heart. I could kiss her all day long. Do not get me wrong, I love Daddy too, and would kiss him lots, but he does not like my kisses that much. Mommy lets me kiss her a lot. We start off each morning with kisses, and end each day with kisses too!
I get to spend time snuggling with Mommy each day while Daddy is at work, and often Mommy brings me up on the bed for snuggles. I love to snuggle and nap in Mommy's bed, as Daddy points out, Mommy is so comfy!
I can't believe I have only been with Mommy and Daddy for 8 months, it seems like so much longer! I am such a lucky puppy that they picked me to be their furry baby. I know that no matter what, I will always be Mommy's boy. How can I not love her, she is so pretty, and she takes such great care of me, and gives me so much love. Daddy is right, I am the happiest dog in the world!
