Got Girlfriend??

(Sheepdog Trials)

Hi Everydoggy,

It's me Canyon...I clawed the computer away from Kelsey for today. I got to go with mom, dad and my little biped to the Green Lane Scottish-Irish festival on Saturday. Sky had to stay home...which he was not very happy about and he gave me a good sniffing once I got home. Mom and dad said I got to go with them because I need to practice my "new people" skills. I get very scared around new people, but just adults, not kids. I was very good on the car ride there and didn't try to steal the little biped's cheeseburger and fries. I was very worried once we got there though....lots of new people and new smells and new sounds. Unlike Stormy I found out I liked to be as far away from the bagpipes as possible.

We stayed at the MaPaw booth for awhile and then took a walk around the festival. As we were walking around I had a very unfortunate event. A little chihuahua ran up to me and tried to pick a fight with me....apparently the dog's owner thought it was ok to let her dog run loose with lots of strange humans and dogs in the park...NOT!!! Dad told her through clenched teeth..."you need to keep your dog on a leash" I won't tell you what Dad would have preferred to tell her....not fit for puppy ears. I think the little doggy was just lucky it wasn't Sky that was along....I don't think he would have been as nice as I happened so fast I didn't know how to react. But I'm ok and no fighting ensued.

The little biped got to meet the guy that's at the end of the rainbow...apparently he doesn't have a pot of gold anymore...just a visa card. The little biped really likes his lucky charms too!
When we got back to the MaPaw booth I was very HOT and tired and need a rest....and here's where I met my new girlfriend, Callie. We were both taking a break by the water bowl....I was drinking and Callie thought it was a foot bath. Girls are so strange! Callie, is a foster dog with MaPaw. Right now Callie is not available for adoption because she has episodes of grand mal seizures and needs to be rushed to the emergency vet everytime it happens. It is very scary for all of us here at MaPaw, but Ma, Pa and the vets are trying to find a good mix of meds for her so she can be OK.
Hey Baby!(insert Barry White woof)

Lots of people checking out the MaPaw table Misty II trying to find her new furever home

It sure was a fun day and I have my paws crossed that lots of MaPaw doggies will find their furever homes. That's what being involved with a dog rescue is all about!!! (Heck, I didn't even make it our of my transport home...hehehehe)

Puppy Slurps, Canyon

I am so bummed I don't live closer! All the fun stuff goes on in PA!! I think I need to move closer! My human loves Scotish and Celtic music. Maybe because she has Scotch and Irish heritage.

I hope some Mapaw pups found some new homes!

Woo Woo! Canyon, you and Callie look like quite the couple. We have to think of an official name for you and Shyla since neither one of you made it past foster transport. ::hee hee::

Looks like you had fun! That is a scary guy that your little biped is sitting next to. Is that his natural hair color?


Amici said...

Did you get to try some of his lucky charms? Yummy!

It sounds like you did a great job meeting all those people and dogs. What a busy but hopefully very fun day! :)
