bark to the park!

okie dokie, so i know bark to the park was like 2 saturdays ago, but my mama has been super duper busy, and she just now got all the pictures off of her flashy camera.  fiiiiiinally, i can show you all about this totally awesome sauce event!
bark to the park happens every spring and is sponsored by one of our favorite local shelters, project pet.  it starts off with a fun hooman and doggie walkie.  the walkie ends at an uber awesome park where all of these booths 'n tents are set up with tons of stuff to check out!  most important like, are the various rescue groups that bring some of their doggies available for adoption or fostering.  then there are local doggie vendors, and lots of them give out free foodables 'n treatsies!  also, there are some agilities groups doing flyball and frisbee.  oh, i almost forgot that there are costume contests, too.  and of course there is a music stage and food for the hoomans.
i've been to two bark to the parks now, and every year i just have so much funsies!  bestest of all is knowing that everyone there is helping to raise money and awareness for homeless doggies (and even the kitties, too)!
now i'm gonna show you the pictures!
(you're gonna notice that my big sis asa isn't in any of the pictures.  unfortunately, she hasn't been able to come to bark in the park cuz she gets really really anxious around large groups of people and doggies.  boohoo.  i wish she could come, but i don't want her to feel uncomfortable.  i brought her home a bandanna so we can be matchy matchy at least.)

Hi Booker Man. I am glad that you came back and showed us MORE of bark park. I loved these pics. Especially the pool zone!!
You really look cool in your blue bandanna!

Anonymous said...

Booker! That looks like SOOOOO much fun! But I haves to admit, I prolly would be like Asa and stay at home. I actually think you're kinda brave to just dive right in to all of that activities like you did.

Oh, and I liked seeing that doggie that looked like my Brudder Ranger!

Wiggles & Wags,

Hi Booker!

Thanks for thinking of me when you saw that pretty Border Collie. That Bark to the Park thing sounds like a lot of fun. I LOVED the pool area! That was too cute! I'm so glad you got to go and have a good time.

What a fun day you had, Booker Man. So many fun activities too. Come to think of it, we have not been to the park for quite some time now. That is all because of Christmas.

Dog Foster Mom said...

Thanks for sharing those photos - it looks like so much fun! It was nice of you to bring back a bandana for your sister so you could match.

Mack and Mia said...

That looks like soooo much fun. We've got the Million Paws Walk coming up soon. I love it. Kendra stays home. She and Asa should meet!

Hope they got lots of money for those dogs without families.

Mr Booksies-
That looks like just about the coolest place ever. For reals. Mama is trying to find out about some stuff like that up here in Pennsylvania but I don't wanna wait, especially after seeing your pictures! Your mom did an AWESOME job chronicling your adventure.
Peace Out!!

PS Tell Asa I'm sorry she didn't get to go. That's sad that she gets scared but I know what she means. When I went to the rabies clinic I was super nervous too!

sprinkles said...

What a fun day! I really wish things were more pet oriented here. There's a walk that the Humane Society puts on every year that I go to but once the walk is over and you've walked around and checked out a few of the vendors, there's not much else to do. Boo!

My dog Shiver doesn't like big crowds either. He shivers (hence the name!) and tries to get me to carry him.

Lola said...

Oh, what great photos. Thanks so much for sharing them. Love you in that bandana, too. You are a very sharp dressed dog, Booker.

wags, Lola

JD and Max said...

Hi Booker, that looks like SO much fun we don't know where to start! We wish, wish, wish we could have gone too! Oh, it would have been amazing! Your bandanna is super cool and we loved seeing all the doggies you met, that boxer puppy with his shoelace fixation was adorable! And the pool zone - fun, fun, FUN! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Ina in Alaska said...

That looked like a super fun event! We are so glad you got to go and we completely understand about Asa. Our Ginger gets very fretful in large crowds, like the great actress Greta Garbo, she prefers to be alone, darlings!!! xoxo

Tucker said...

Oh I am so jealous, look at all those cool new friends you met.

woof - Tucker

The Strawberry Mallard said...

You know it really is way too cool!I sure do wish that Ma would take me to one of these events...BOL

Zona said...

WOW! That looks like it was a lot of fun! I'd probably be a little overwhelmed so I'd snuggle at home with Asa, I think. But my sisters would LOVE to go to something like this! And for such a good cause! You're pawesome Booker!


Golden Retriever pups said...

Ohh, this must have been a fantastic day (even if it was 2 weeks ago). All of the dogs are happy and amused by their human companions and by the many-many games and other doggies there.
Fantastic day, fantastic pictures!
Best wishes
