Two years ago my papa dressed me up like a train and mom and papa took me to GermanFest where oodles of doxie's were dressed in many costumes... it was an awesome day! I'm happy to say I won a blue ribbon for my costume!! Mom and papa brought me to the event to help spread awareness that despite me having IVDD and in a wheelchair, I am a happy pup. Happy, happy indeed!
This year we will be heading back to GermanFest on Sunday, July 25th. The festivities begin at noon. We will have a table set up and I'll be pawtographing my books and donating a portion of proceeds to Dodgerslist. I can't wait to see all the wiener dogs!! So stop on by if you can and say hi. Sure would love to meet you and say ARF! Check out GermanFest website for my details!
