Pet A Palooza
My Saturdays are now dedicated to my granddaughter. We spend the day, sometimes the whole weekend, enjoying life. It helps that we have so much in common. This Saturday we went to Pet-A-Palooza at Piedmont Park, Atlanta GA. They had activities for the animals from 12 - 6pm. Now that I think about it, I didn't see anything but dogs there. It was a rainy day, so it wasn't packed, but Bruce and Buttercup had a good time.
Here we are in the photo booth. I didn't have a clue where the camera was until after they snapped the pictures.
Here's Bruce modeling his Pet-A-Palooza shirt.
It says, "I went to Pet-A-Palooza and all I got was this shirt."
This was the only size they had, so Buttercup didn't get one.
I guess this is a good time to introduce Buttercup. I rescued her a couple weeks ago. She was left outside for over a year. The person who was supposed to be taking care of her, just let her roam the streets. The neighbors were making sure she got food and water. I confronted the man when I learned what was going on. I know he thought I was crazy. Once it started getting cold, I couldn't sleep knowing that she was outside freezing. After two days of no sleep, I knew I had to do something.
Two baths and two haircuts later, she's starting to look presentable. She was a mess. She's such a lovable dog, and all she wants me to do is hold her. She and Bruce are becoming fast buddies. Bruce happily shares his food with her, which is surprising since he doesn't let humans (other than me) get near his food.
Bruce didn't move the whole time I was taking these pictures. So all I had to deal with was getting Buttercup to sit still.
