Nothing ever goes as planned… I swear. I completely forgot that I had to work from 9-4 on Saturday but thankfully was able to switch my schedule around so that I could work from 11-6 instead. That meant that we would be able to go and check out the Doxie Palooza but not stay the entire time. I have never seen so many Doxie’s at one time in all my life.
We checked out the racing lanes to let Nacho run but before we could do a trial run, Bugaboo started playing with the balloons and before I knew what he was doing, he unclipped the balloons and they started flying away. I tried to catch them but they were too high. They got caught in some trees next to the race site. Man-Child and I realized no one had seen what happened, and let’s just say, we nonchalantly walked away from the scene of the crime. Horrible, I know, but I was embarrassed and really, who doesn’t secure balloons to a fence when there are children around, Hmm??? Yah, that’s what I thought. We had a good laugh about 15 minutes later when another child released the other set of balloons on the opposite side of fence. His parents did the same thing we did. Looked around nervously and bailed. We thought it was funny. Ironically, both sets of balloons ended up in the same tree.
Bugaboo was enjoying himself. He called every dog there “Nacho.”
There were black ones; leopard spotted ones, chubby ones, muscular, big-boned ones (such as our Nacho, lol.) We don’t want to hurt his feelings and tell him he is overweight, so we simply tell him he is all muscles and bones!
Nacho did get a chance to shine in the “bare-naked” Doxie show but was not able to race. I had to leave at 10:45 and they were still finishing the dog show. The race hadn’t even started and it was too hot and humid for Man-Child to keep up with Nacho and Bugaboo alone, so they left shortly after I did.
It was a fun morning and I wish Nacho raced but there is always next year. We know now what to expect and will plan better next go around.
Here is Bugaboo smooching Nacho… looks almost like he is choking him… brotherly love…
Tomorrow I am going to share a recipe with you that I got off the Pioneer Woman’s food blog… and yah… I’ll share with you how that went… or rather… didn’t go…
