Dog Days of Denton this year was pretty lonely, with only Leo to hold down the fort! Our Shiloh friends were at the Tulsa IABCA show, getting themselves some ribbons; Thorn had a sore paw; and Kyrie had just gone into heat the week before, so bringing her wasn't going to happen. Nonetheless, we had a great time! Above you can see Leo and Zak, posing behind our table. This year we had our usual trifolds, "You've Met Leo!" cards, and a flyer about Shiloh Size, Hips, and Temperament. We also added a flyer about Shiloh Rescues and Re-Homes, since we are always in the rescue section of the festival and get lots of enquiries!
Above, Zak talked to one of our booth neighbors about Shilohs after Leo greeted her. Below, Leo putting on his "Majestic Leo" expression. He enjoyed being out and about with his humans for the morning! In the background you can see the marked fields where they were running flyball and disc dog demos. We were in a great position to watch, and picked up some discs for the dogs to play with at home!
Below is our booth neighbor, the "Barkery" Dog Bakery! Her home-baked dog biscuits were AWESOME! Our dogs especially loved the "Beefy Beagles" and "Piggy Pugs" and "Peanut Butter Paws". I told her she needed to add some "Cinnamon Shepherds" to go with her "Great Danishes"!!
We had more than a few shepherds and shepherd mixes stop by to say hello to fellow shepherd people! Below, a German-lines GSD, who was very confident and friendly (but really, REALLY wanted to get those frisbees away from the disc dogs!).
And the absolute sweetest shepherd mix we ever met--she was a husky/shepherd mix. Look at that great deep silvery-gray color! She was a big ham and really liked my camera! I couldn't resist feeding her a few nibbles of our Beefy Beagles biscuits (don't tell Leo!):
About the time it hit 95 degrees Leo decided that he was a giant lap-dog and that if he just sat on Zak long enough, we would take him to some air conditioning! We gave in and did take him home shortly after. The heat was brutal this year!
