Over the weekend I took a break from school supply shopping and we attended an especially fun event with our flyball team. We all dressed up in our best Flying Underdogs attire and marched in the Freemont Street parade with one of our favorite local pet stores, Green Dog Pet Supply.
Athena practiced her manners in front of dogs, kids, horses, and lots, and lots of people. It was great preparation for her Canine Good Citizen test which has finally been scheduled for this coming Saturday the 10th (fingers crossed that she passes)!
There were so many highlights to our fun outing, one of which was all of the time we got to spend with this totally adorable puppy (she will soon be up for adoption through MCAS):
Puppy Frankie, Athena, and their friends Roo and Henry all had a blast together and even got to share some doggie ice cream treats after the parade.
Henry even won 3rd place in the dog costume contest!
Before we started flyball, Athena's only friends were her daycare buddies. Now she has lots of flyball friends to hang out with!
Do you live in the Portland area and want to give flyball a try? We'd LOVE to meet you and your dog and I'm sure Athena would be up for showing you her flyball skills. Check out our flyball team, the Flying Underdogs, for info on starting a flyball class.
