We pulled up alongside Barbara Curtiss's house yesterday morning and this is the first sight we saw! This is my 7th year visiting NEAR and each year brings so many smiles! We just love coming here for Barktoberfest!
Denis's sculptures are awesome! They're fabulous to see in person!
Mitch wanted to know if that was Janie! She had a lot of fur but no pretty bow!
Is that Dexter we see?!
I met a 15-year old Welshie named Reilly. He's Barbara Curtiss' doggie and he was the oldest doggie at the event!
Carol Usher was there with her dogs, Jessie and Scuffer, and she did demonstrate the art of needle felting! Mom would have liked to stand there all day and watch her poke away! She's a master with that barbed needle!
And she brought goodies to sell and yes, mom did buy one of them! We'll save that post for tomorrow.
There was a Dale dressed as a witch~And a Wire Fox Terrier dressed as a lobster.
That's Mitch with his tongue hanging out and a very interested dad right beside him! hehehe
Check out that huge bumble bee! He's standing on a table so he's really not as big as a horse!
I tried to catch a hotdog - and missed! That's Barbara Curtiss that's hanging onto my leash!And Mitch did worse at the hotdog toss than I did!We got treats! Thanks, dad!
And we had a great time!
And we were anxious to get home for dindin!
It was an exhausting day~
But so much fun and we wouldn't trade any part of it!
We'll be back tomorrow to show you the goodies that mom bought!
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
