Anyway, we arrived at Dogtoberfest right when it started so that we would be there in time for the Animal Blessing, which kicked off the event. A Priest said a prayer and then walked over to the dogs and blessed each dog individually by saying the dog's name and sprinkling the dog with Holy Water. I feel so special now! Silvius was blessed too, so we feel pretty confident that together our prayers for lots of meaty bones will be heard! After the Blessing we walked around the event because we had a lot of sniffing to do and reading of pee mails. It seemed like we had just arrived when my human, K, said it was time to leave. I woofed to her that she was free to leave but since I was having such a good time could she kindly unleash me so I could stay and party with the pups and I would meet her back at home when I was done. K said no. I suppose I could have pulled Silvius aside and had us both cross our paws and pray that K would unleash us so we could stay and just come home of our own volition. But since I am new to this “blessing” thing I had not thought of it at the time. I am going to have to make a mental note of my new blessed status so next time I remember to use it. And of course, I will only use my newly elevated power for good. So...praying for a few yummy bunnies to hop across my lawn and into my mouth is good, right? I’m just sayin’…
17 October 2010
Saturday I was blessed! I went to an event in town called Dogtoberfest. It was held at a big park downtown and had lots of fun events for dogs to participate in or just watch, and many interesting and fun booths for the humans to have something to do. Lots of those booths were giving out free treats for us dogs but I did not eat any because I was just too excited to be out socializing among so many of my fellow canines. I was having too much fun to eat!
