Or should I say, “Fun with chili and dogs?” Not chili dogs, I guess.
Date: Saturday, 10/9/10
Place: Dogtoberfest and the Plaza-Midwood Chili Cook-Off
Distance: 10 min from home
I had some pretty good fun-filled outings this past weekend.
In hopes of tiring me out for Dogtoberfest later in the day, Saturday started off with a run with P. (That didn’t work. ha.) I was energized and raring to go when it was time to head off to Dogtoberfest at Jackalope Jack’s in Elizabeth … but not without a costume first.
P made me wear a UNC football jersey as my costume. Coincidence: Max (Aunt Mary’s family dog) happened to dress as Ramses, UNC’s ram mascot. Together, we were a UNC football game.
I hopped into the kiddie pool with my jersey on and caused quite a stir. (Hence, why my butt is wet in some of the pics below.)
After wreaking havoc at Dogtoberfest, I was off to the Plaza-Midwood Chili Cook-off to meet up with my pal Heather.
I was quite the popular dog there with a constant stream of people wanting to pet me. Mom and I played a game with oyster crackers (she put them on my head, then I would move my head, make them fall, and eat them!). Licking spilled chili off the asphalt was quite fun as well.
All that fun was followed by a day at the Whitewater Center with my friends Katie and Tanner on Sunday. Sorry, I was too busy running the trails to take any pics!
