We went on a spring walk on Saturday. It was a glorious, sunny, cool day that was perfect for walking the dogs. The highlight of this walk was that we joined our local Newfoundland Club to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone was encouraged to show their spirit by dressing in green for a costume contest.
I had a vision in my head and gathered up the supplies to create two fluffy skirts that would bounce and sway with the “Newfoundland Wiggle”.
They turned out exactly as I wanted and their movement was perfect!
Fortunately, we weren’t the only ones that dressed up (our dogs) and we found ourselves in the midst of a very festive group.
After we left the walk, Maisie and I raced to our training class. We are back in classes working toward being a certified therapy team. I decided to leave her dressed, figuring that the staff would be entertained by her outfit and they were! Her skirt proved to be a good distraction for at least one of the other dogs to work through, and Maisie had her best class ever. Maybe because she was tired, but I also think she was showing off because she felt special. She was exhausted from it all once we got home!
We hope you all had a fun weekend too!
