WAG FEST Pawt #1

We went to WAG FEST   in Columbus on Saturday...   it was a BLAST...
Would Cha just LOOK at all the Peeps...    there were WAY more that 8,700 and we were there EARLY...   AND oh the PUPPERS.  There were Bazillions of them..   
All kinds of us Puppers...
 And beclaws it was HOT...   there were these SPECIAL tents set up JUST FUR US Dawgs... so WE could Cool our paws.   NO PEEPS Allowed.  
 Ernie got in just as soon as this guy got OUT...
 AND then I Got in when Ernie got out...    OMD it felt SOOOOOO good.
 These are just TWO of the Bazillions of Dachshunds that we saw...  One was long and the other short... HAIRED...  Fooled you, didn't I !!    They were both dapples.     Their mom was on crutches... and they were SO careful of her.
 Peeps and Pups and TENTS of all sorts of FREE stuffs...      MILES of Tents of FREE stuffs.. and look at the beautiful blue sky.
 There were so many tents of FREE stuffs... that the No Walkin Wagon was TOTALLY FULL and mom could hardly pull it.    NO KIDDIN'!!!!
 THIS is ANOTHER Paw Cooling place...   and they had Bowls of FRESH water and a COOLER of water to fill them back up with... so we didn't have to drink Dirty water..   BUTT it really didn't matter though beclaws Mom had brought a cooler with our water and STRING CHEESE.. oh and there cold drinks too.     When the water would get LOW or Dirty (don't know how that would happen) the guyz from the Park would come with a HOOOOOOGE TRUCK of FRESH WATER and we would start all over again.
 It was a VERY VERY much LONG WALK..     at least WE thought so.
 Ernie wanted in the No Walkin Wagon butt as you can see... it was ALREADY starting to fill up with FREE STUFFS...   and we were just Half Way down ONE SIDE of tents...
 NOW this is the BESTEST thingy...    KROGER.. the Largest Grocery Chain in the U.S.A....   hosted this ICE CASTLE...   and we went in to REALLY....  CHILL OUT.
 See this guy?    He was Layin in the ICE..  
 Ernie and I got in fur about 87 seconds... butt then the BIG DAWGS started  ROLLING and ROACHING and Diving and Face Planting and Digging   and having a BLAST...   So WE got out...
 LOOK AT EM..       They were Eating Ice and THROWING Ice and scratching an digging ice..  
 It was SOOOOOO cool lookin that I got BACK IN and layed down..    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH   Talk about REeeeeeeeeeeeFRESHING.        And Kroger kept putting MORE ice in when it would start to melt...        
There were dogs WAITING to have a turn in the ICE CASTLE.. and some of the dawgs REFUSED to lissen to their moms and dads and get OUT so others could get in.           THEY gotted in trouble with their peeps fur THAT...  BaaaaWaaaaah.         Now you can't tell how big this Ice Castle was butt Dad says it was 8 feet by 8 feet...         All I know is it made OUR 8 Feet feel SUPER... not to mention our TUMMIES..
    THEN we got to CROSS A BRIDGE...       Don't worry dad... We will get you across safe and sound.

 He was kinda SCARED so Ernie had to get in FRONT and I had to PUSH him....    THERE was WATER under there... and FISH...    Ernie wanted to FISH butt I said NO..   We can FISH any time... Let's go see what else there is to see.
 We walked some more and got MORE FREE STUFFS and then came to ANOTHER COOL POOL Place.. and Ernie and I RACED each other to it..       Last one in's a Smelly Squirrel !!!!
 We told mom and dad to just Stand in the SHADE and WAIT until WE were ready to move on...  
Tomorrow we will show you some of the FREE STUFFS we got.

Look at all that water! I am so envious! Forget the free stuff... WATER! I'm not surprised your stumpy legs (assuming you actually have leggies) got tired with all the swimming and motoring about.

Kisses,
Dexter

Ooooh! Sign us up for that Ice Castle! As you know, we are partial to cooler temps, and a certain lard-butted sister of mine has been known, on occasion, to plop herself in the snow for hours on end - so you know she would have totally been hogging the ice castle! That looks like your two (and your peeps) had a totally pawsome time!

Did u say string cheese. Yum. Oh and that ice castle looked like fun.

The Websters said...

Ok. I need to talk to my grandpa about that ice castle. He works for Kroger (called Dillions here) and I didn't even know they did such beautiful events.

Also, you have the coolest events in your town. We may need to think about moving.
