Paws In The Park - fund raiser for our local animal shelter Pet Pride

(The Beaglebratz are letting mom do this post.)
 
September 18, 2010 @ 9am
Gage Park, Topeka, KS

 This event is the major fund raiser for our local animal shelter.   
This year is really important as they are renovating 
a larger facility which will hopefully allow for more time 
for dogs and cats to be adopted.  
Me and Shiloh began attending after his 1st birthday.  
The little white dog is my sister's West Highland White Terrier.  
Shasta has been twice - the first year she went the weather was 
damp, chilly and drizzling bad - 
we left shortly after the mutt strut, a one mile walk through 
the park and before any contests so no pictures.  
Last year, I'm not sure why except I forgot my camera.  
Last year we tried doing a duo in the best pet trick contest - 
Shiloh'n Shasta do tricks together really well at home - 
when we were on stage Shasta was more concerned at looking 
out into the audience to make sure everyone was 
watching her instead of doing tricks.  
Shiloh tried his best to make up for her but 
it wasn't good enough.  
This year, it's just me and Shiloh competing in the best pet trick and 
I mite try best kisser with Shasta.  
They also serve breakfast (pancakes and sausage donated by a local restaurant), variety of vendors there and an agility-type coarse for those wanting to try that. 

The next two pictures are Shiloh with 
the "hardware" he won for best pet trick - 
I didn't get a picture of him after he won it a third time.
