It has been A Dogs Life or should we say we have all gone Dog Gone Crazy! Guess to be totally correct it is all of that.
First weekend here we went to the agility trials at Casa de Fruta.
Then there was the Rib Fest.....Weekend after that takes us to the Hollister Dog Days. An annual event promoting responsible pet ownership. There were booths where all sorts of information could be found. Schutzhund demos, food galore,
|Ralle is ready to take the "Canine Good Citizen Test".|
There was heeling left, right, about turns, distracting situations such as a person and a bike, another dog, a person with a walker , etc. Then a long down where we had to go and hide from our dogs for three minutes, a recall among other things. Fun! Buddie and Ralle were STARS!
|Ralle earned his Good Citizen Award.|
Between the weekends there were some walks at some parks.
Taking Ralle to Christmas Tree Park is always a fun outing for him.
Then there was a week end for "The Wag and Walk"
Some of us (Buddie included) were off helping take care of the youngest grand kiddies down south near Los Angeles while their Mom was off on a Swedish visit. But,
David, Maria and Ralle were in attendance for wagging and walking. OK! Perhaps Maria and David did not wag so much.....
So, who knows? Maybe he too wagged a little!

The attendance was good. Dogs of every shape and size..... All right Ralle was the BIGGEST!
People walked, some ran with or without a pet companion.
|Ralle, family, and good friends.|
This fun group of people who came to walk with Ralle included one of Maria's favorite co workers.

The surroundings were nice. Everyone had a great time.

The "dog days of summer" do not occur until the end of August or early September. I stand corrected. So there is a lot more DOG days coming up.
