Hello mates, Norman here to share more photos from the weekend’s adventures mum and I had at hospital’s Fall Festival. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but any time I get a chance to ride in the car, I’m in. Just don’t forget to bring my costume, mum!
There were a lot of games for all those little people to play. I came “this” close to catching that ball till mum reminded me that I was there as an observer, not a participant.
But don’t cry for me, I got to spend some quality one-on-one time with lots of little people…some of them even tried to
poke my eye out give me a treat.
No sweat, little guy. I like pineapples.
The Flight for Life helicopter made an appearance and all the kiddos wanted to sit in it. It was pretty noisy but great fun for attendees.
We had a great time hanging out with the other pet therapy dogs and their mums. Logan and his mum, Janet went dressed up as “Mardi Growls.” These guys definitely know how to ‘par-tay!’
My friend Delia, a hospital staffer, brought her recently rescued pup to the event. Bubba definitely won the dog lotto by getting adopted by her as she is one of the kindest people we’ve met at hospital. He wasn’t quite sure what to make of me so I was careful to be extra kind to him so as not to scare the little guy.
Nurses seem to be drawn to me, and you know what? I don’t mind one little bit.
Face painting and painting pumpkins were a bit hit with lots of diligent artists.
Our group led the pet parade for all dogs in attendance as well as anyone who wanted to walk with us.
Mum and I spread the word about the very cool backdrop at the photo booth. My pal Bindee and her mum, Joy took advantage. Isn’t Bindee just the cutest little pumpkin you’ve ever seen on a lap?
Our director, Donna has a beautiful and super talented black miniature poodle. Roxie, a champion dancer who also competes in nose work, is nothing like my sister and she made sure to tell me not all black poodles are Ninjas. Whew…that’s a relief!
Even mum and I decided to get in on the action at the photo booth. We’re just a “couple of jokers” having a good time.
It was good seeing our Golden pal Riley and her mum, Jaycee. Riley has been very sick this past year with an autoimmune disorder and is just now able to bring smiles to people. She’s a real sweetheart and loved by all who meet her.
A group photo of the pet therapy dogs show we’re a good looking and a well behaved bunch.
As events go this one was a nice family affair. It was good being able to spend time in the community after last year’s event was cancelled due to COVID. But I can assure you, I was one knackered boy at the end of the day. I fell fast asleep in the Ninja’s bed-something I never do (she wasn’t too happy about it but I was so tired and it was the first bed I found).
Mum and I are back at hospital again today after having great visits yesterday. We’ll share details about those adventures soon. What do you plan to wear for Halloween fun?
Live, love, bark! 🐾
