Strut Your Mutt

Strut Your Mutt is a fundraiser for the Franklin County Humace Society, which is why I didn't mind (my mom) paying the $15 it cost for Vincent and his dog Lexi to go. The event featured many doggie services, as well as games like limbo, bobbing for hot dogs, and musical place mats. There was also contests, like biggest dog, smallest dog, best trick and fastest eater.

While our dog is definitely not the fastest eater, (she had barely started when another dog had finished eating its peanut butter off a spoon), she did win second place in the costume contest! The first place winners were twin lab puppies in bikinis. If there weren't two I really don't think they would have won, but they were pretty cute. Dang twins!

As a prize, Lexi was awarded a bag of dog treats and a dog christmas ornament. Vincent was thrilled. We heard there was going to be a contest and spent a long time the evening before looking for a costume for Lexi. Vincent piced out a banana split, but our dog has a pretty small head, so the banana hat didn't really fit. So most of the time she was just an ice cream.

There were some costumes I liked better, but Lexi is Vincent's dog and I wanted him to pick. He loves his dog so much and was so happy to win. I didn't really get any good pictures, but I did find one decent one. There were a ton of dogs and kids and people... just too much to worry about the camera.

This event was Saturday, Sept. 18, so I'm a little behind in posting. Sorry.
