Remember back when I asked for help with that contest on Facebook? Well, thanks to a lot of help from my friends, I was able to win this time. Thank you to everybody who clicked "like" for me in the Voyager's K9 Apparel contest! We got the gift certificate in the mail this week and we found out that they were going to be vending at the Greyhounds Only reunion up in Chicago. We asked them to bring a coat for Blueberry and we made our plans to go to the reunion.
The reunion was fantastic! There were Greyhounds everywhere to sniff. Of course, there was also shopping to be done. We picked out Blueberry's coat and I tried on some boots. After our outing on Saturday, I can't say that I think I'd mind them too much. Mom and Dad are hoping we're going to get to go out and do a little hiking this winter and they should help me keep warm and dry while we're out in the snow. Of course, just walking around town I won't need them, but I do like the idea of my feet not freezing off out in the tundra.
Jackson up there. He and his sister, Emma, stayed with us for a week back when his mom had to take a trip for a funeral. I liked him a lot better when we saw him today and we hear that he's grown up a lot and learned some manners. I have to agree that he has! He's big enough that I could walk under him without having to bend down at all. Hopefully we'll be able to get together with him and Emma soon!
