The Durham Fair

Mom and dad went to the Durham Fair Friday night.   Did they take us along?  NO!  They made up some fibby story that dogs are not allowed to attend.
 The afternoon started with dad having his apple crisp.  He waits all year for that yummy apple crisp!
 And the next stop was French fries.   Dad told mom to please remember to wrap a couple of French fries to bring home to us.  Did that happen?  NOPE!

Mom said that walking by the apples smelled soooooo wonderfully fragrant!   We thought of you, Mitch♥
 How cute is this decorated pumpkin and it took 1st place!
 This is the strangest looking pumpkin that we have ever seen!
 Next came the needlework building~
Autumn at its finest.  Our peeps love covered bridges. 
 Our mom adores pansies♥
 The cubes on that wall hanging looked like they were going to roll right off!
 They do such beautiful work~
 This guy was selling goat soap!
 This little girl was showing her cow.
 And this one is being shown too by youngsters.    Are you noticing the feets?
 They're all polished up for the show!  How cool is that!
 We commented how big that cow was and dad asked if she was pregnant.   They told him, no, she's just phat!   How rude!
 Obviously, she thought it was pretty rude too!
 Excuse us.   Didn't you say NO DOGS ALLOWED!    Mom said that was a service dog and she was working.  hummmmm
 You need to remove the sawdust from your face before the judges come around, Miss Bunny!
 The piglets are always a hit at the fair.  You normally can't get near them!
 This piggy is sleeping in the food dish☺
Don't they feed you?
 She must have just come from the beauty shop.   Mom said not a fur was out of place on her head~
 What striking feathers!
 And then came the giant pumpkins!
The winner weight 1,642.5 pounds!  WOW!
And the fair is not complete without mom eating her giant sugar donut☺
 Look what else mom saw.  Dog treats and lots of them!   She never brings home any for us.
Guess what!
 That is real melted cheese!

Thanks, mom!   We can't wait for the Durham fair next year!

Love ya lots♥
Molly and Mackie

Gus says " Everything looked great, but man! Those dog treats are the greatest!

Madi and Mom said...

WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT you did not go? I hope you showed them the back of disrespect when they came home. Seriously our fair doesn't allow pups either weird every other animal is there. That was one yummy looking cheese treat you had!!

Mom almost jumped through the monitor when she saw that apple crisp in your dad's hand. That was certainly a lovely day for a fair and walking about looking at all the pretty things.
Hugs madi your bfff

Mom loves going to the Fair and watching the kids take pride in their show animals. I've never been but mom and dad always come back with all kinds of good smells on them.

Aroo to you,

That was the funniest picture of the little pig in the dish. That food looked so good, those kids at the fair take good care of their animals, polished hooves and all. stella rose

Helen said...

That fair looks awesome too bad you didn't get to go but at least you had treats. I went away for over two weeks and didn't bring my guys anything; they were still happy to see me though.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

SHE loves our local show....all those animals and crafts. BUT, yours looks better than ours.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Oh, love that header with the load of tennis balls....and apple.

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

WOW - everything is so beautiful and fun!!! Hard to pick out a favorite. We think we would stay all day at those dog treats while Mom would enjoy the needlework. Dad would be wherever there was apple crisp and donuts:)

Ojo said...

Hi hi hi! Ojo here! No Dogs? Bah humbug, that's what I say! But hurray for fancy new treats!

Millie and Walter said...

That looked like fun. At least you got a snack as a souvenir.

Susie Q said...

Thank you for taking us to the fair with you. I love seeing other country fairs and although the animals are the same they do look different! You look as if you enjoyed the treats when your Mom and Dad got back. Congratulations Mackie on graduating again you did really well and how big you are now. Hugs and Woofs Susie & Treacle xx

That looked like great fun! Wish we could have gone too!

The Army of Four said...

Well, thank goodness they brought yummy treats home for you, but I'm not buying this whole "no dogs" thing. I mean, they had a goat selling soap, show cows, bun-buns and piggies hanging out, etc. and they won't let pups in?!!? Not. Buying. It. I think your mom just didn't want to share her donut. Seriously.
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

There is something about a good old county fair that just brings America home. We love seeing all the exhibits and the animals.

Mom and Dad skipped the fair this year because it was 100 degrees. They said they'd rather relax with us in the air conditioning. Mom does love her annual sausage sandwich though.
