Pug Picnic

So yesterday was the highly anticipated pug picnic for Vernon.

I didn't manage to sort out my camera woes, so I don't have pictures of the event. In some ways, that was okay though, as I was able to interact with some of the other pug owners more. Last year, I was pretty busy trying to capture as much of it on the camera as possible. But this year both Holly and I were able to be there, so the pressure was off.

Somehow, I think my wife managed to pet each and every pug that was there. To say she had a good time would be an understatement.

As for Louise, well she had a fantastic time also. She was even friendly to the other dogs (most of the time) and managed to hop into the laps of several strangers during the afternoon. This year was different from last in that there was a BBQ, with hamburgers being served. This was a HUGE improvement in my mind, and Louise heartily agreed, since she managed to eat my wife's burger for her. So much for reducing our cholesterol.

Overall, the event was another success. Should I happen to get some pictures from some of the others who were there, I will be happy to post them here.

Have you thought about doing Pet Therapy at nursing homes and such with Louise?

Yes, we have - Louise has been in a nursing home a couple times now, but those times happened while we were on vacation and she was with her dog-sitter. He was visiting family who were in a home, and he brought Louise along.

Apparently it went very well. So far, her experience in this has been somewhat informal though and Louise's schedule remains open.
