This was the lovely setting for my Sunday with Brutus. One of the members of our agility club belongs to a church that does an blessing of the animals at this picturesque park every year. There were all sorts of animals that brought their humans out for the day, including a few cats on leashes & even a goldfish in a bowl (its' leash wouldn't stay on apparently...).
The event draws a good crowd, and was nice enough to also host an agility demonstration as part of the celebration. So not only did Brutus get blessed, he got to practice agility as well! We encountered a whole lot of new furiends, and even taught a few of them how to do some agility. Brutus & I couldn't help but think of some of our blogging buddies when we met some of these dogs!
I think the entire congregation of St. Patrick's was on hand to help!
Brutus has never been the religious type, but we'll take any blessings we can get! His blessing was specifically for his health and safety.
After that serene moment, it was a real change of pace to do some agility! You can hardly see him, but Brutus is flying along just behind me. Think that might be one of Khrya's cousins observing?
This little Schnauzer was a natural at agility!
We thought of Oskar when we met him!
This guy reminded us a little of Brownie (well, except for the fluffy tail!)
Here's a perfect pair of pugs - it seems that you can never have just one?
We have so many pug furiends, I'm sure we'd leave someone out if we tried to list them all!!
Might this be a another long lost relative of Khyra??
The 50F temps still seemed a little too toasty for her!
And could it be?? Finally we spotted a Scottie!
Lilly, Piper & Carrleigh (the Rocky Creek Scotties), Jazzi, and the wee Bonnie, here's looking at ya!
This is Gizmo - he even tried some agilities (sheepskin coat & all)!
Sasha, we think he might make a handsome boyfuriend for you!
And speaking of romantic interests, this little princess had serious eyes for Brutus!
A mutual play-bow and they were instant pals.
Now, if we could just do something about her some fashion choice....
Sadly there were no Duck Tolling Retrievers here, but we looked thoughtfully at the waterfowl in honor of our girl Sedona!
It was the perfect way to enjoy a beautiful fall day, and Brutus & I managed to release some of the pent-up energy we had both accumulated during the preceding long week! Brutus came away a little more blessed, and A LOT more muddy!! So it was home for yet another bath for Brutus, shower for me, then a nice nap for both of us. Gotta love Sundays!
On the heels of yet another Buckeye win (33-14 over the Hoosiers!!) on Saturday (that would make our record 4-1), the day was a perfect ending to a classic fall weekend. Thanks for sharing it with us!
