Whew what a fun event . The big dogshow for the year was in Houston from 07/16 - 07/19. I hadn't been in probably 5 yrs so decided that it was time I went back to visit.
I was good and really didn't spend any $$ (well except on donations lol). I found parking to be pretty steep $8 and had to walk for quite a while to get to the building since there were a lot of people there. Ticket to go in was $10, which wasn't too bad considering how big the event was. I did end up spending $3.75 on a small bottle of water sigh.
There were soo many booth set up with all kinds of fun stuff, food, leashes, jewelery, cloths, etc etc etc! Not to mention a bunch of rescue groups. There was weightpulling which was fun. I got to see a couple of rotties as well as other big breeds pull. There was lots of confirmations going on. I didn't stay long to watch them since there was so much else going on. I didn't get to see the rotties since they were scheduled at 8am yikes lol.
I did get to meet so many great dogs and fun people. So going to share some pics. They aren't the best since Im just figuring out how to use my new camera phone.
See pic of Mona and me. She was manning the kissing booth. $1 a kiss and she was very generous with them.
Mona hanging out in the kissing booth. Isn't she cute in her summer cut?
Isn't he cute just hanging out? Sorry can't remember his name but by this time he was so tired he kept falling asleep like that lol.
This is Bandit. I totally love his marking. Soooo cute and another sweetie.
This is one tired pupper LOL.
I think this is Poppy. And if it is I think she might be getting a forever home if her application goes thru :)
Next stop was Basset Buddies Rescue of Texas. I just had to stop by and say hi. Made me miss Fred my ex's basset.
I just loved her costume and had to take a pic of her and 2 of the bassets!
Now up is Texas Alaskan Malamute Rescue This was one of my favorite stops. The people were super nice and I totally fell in love with the dogs. Made me totally miss having a big dog.
This Malamute wasn't up for adoption but totally sweet. I just wanted to kidnap him (I think it was a male lol)
Another total cutie! I so wanted to walk off with one of them :)
While walking around I saw these cute yorkies all dressed up and totally cute. There were a lot of small dogs all dressed up to party.
Another fun rescue is Texas Gulf Coast Bull Terrier Club Rescue I love bull terrier.
This cutie is Grandma. Isn't she adorable.
This is Sugar. She was nothing but skin and bones when she came into rescue. Now she has a great forever home and as you can tell, she has filled in nicely.
Had to stop by Friends of Rescued Mastiffs Just love this big dogs.
This was actually the pic that made me stop and look LOL. She was totally comfy there on that chair.
And last but on least especially for my sister :) Lone Star Bernese Mountain Dogs
