Doggie Days of Smithtown

Woof woof!  Oh man, The rains fell on Smithtown today but Doggie Day happened!  I wanted to hold this event to introduce my work grounds to a new audience of people, and we did just that.  Even though yesterday it POURED and today there was drizzle, we had about 70 or so doggies come, and those who did had a wonderful time.  We hosted an animal blessing, a herding demonstration, we played sit-and-stay musical chairs, we learned about grooming, we learned about aggression, we read doggie stories, we played around with the farm animals.  I am so glad I did it, and I think we are going to try again for next year, just in the spring.

Enjoy some photos!  And thank you to everyone who donated to our raffles!  You helped my little historical society make some new friends!

I Was in a Parade!

You read right!  Me, the Finn, in a parade!  So, let’s back track.  Momma has been a bad, bad blogger.  We have been a little MIA, but it’s just because her workplace had a lot of events….including a parade.  She will be back to her regularly scheduled blogging soon…promise.

So, here we are!  Smithtown, NY celebrated its 350th Anniversary this year, and Momma’s workplace marched in the parade.  Since her workplace turned 60 this year, the gang decided to dress like it was 1955.  If you look closely, you see that I, Finnie, have an aroo-tiful poodle scarf wrapped around my neck.  Just for you Wally!  It was fun, but hot and there were a lot of noises!  And people.  Momma said there were over 2,100 marchers in the parade!  Can you believe it??


Now Saturday is Momma’s big Doggie Day.  Keep your paws crossed that the rain stays away for it.  We will post plenty of pics from that, promise!
