Our Day at Paws in the Park



We had a wonderful day at Paws in the Park on Sunday. The one mile walk was held at the historic Wayside Inn in Sudbury and we got to walk past the Grist Mill. Mom used to picnic there with her grandmother, so it's one of her favorite spots. We weren't so crazy about the water from the mill. We had a big surprise when Cousin Heather showed up to accompany us for the day. Katy seemed to do really well with Heather. There were lots of vendors to visit before and after the walk.

We got to try some new things and got better at some old things. They handed out complimentary bandanas. Blue meant we weren't rescued from Save a Dog, but were there to support them. There was a woman promoting her dog massage business who gave us complimentary massages.





Katy wasn't too sure about having a stranger do a massage and then the woman found the spot. First Katy dropped to a seated position and then she laid down. She was actually disappointed when the session ended. Bailey could have stayed all day.

There was a fun try out agility course to raise money for Save A Dog. Bailey did the best he's done yet. Katy has always refused to try any of the exercises before. However, lately she's been creating more of her own obstacle courses. Today, she was still paniced over the crowds, but only refused to go through the long tunnel. She did go through the short one.

We haven't moved much since we got home. It was a pretty exhausting. We are so glad so many people turned out to support Save A Dog.

  8. What a great event! Do you think she'd give me a massage? Or does she just work on dogs? :) Maybe geese?

  9. I sometimes get my dogs a massage at the agility trials we attend. They are nervous about such hands-on activity, but quickly relax into it. Jimmy got so relaxed one time, when the woman was finished he wouldn't even get up. He just wanted to keep lying there and relax!

  11. I've never met anyone that gives professional animal massages. Maybe this is one of the times when "You lucky dog!" really fits. :-)

  20. Aren't massages the best? We have a friend/teammate on our flyball team who does canine massage and the boys absolutely LOVE it. Granted, once she's done Remy whips around for days after like he's a puppy again, but it's worth it!
