Right at the start I met my own vet Stacey Steele at the O.S. Animal Hospital (who gave me a treat) and both she and the Raintree Veterinary Center in Hoquiam said I was gorgeous!! And healthy! I also got a cool frisbee from the Hoquiam guys which I used for some needed water - also donated... by good ol' IGA.
And there were so many more treats! Given out at every stall, some new tasty ones from Kool Kats and Dawgs, and from Dennis and Co. Later Saturday evening I couldn't stop playing with my new toys, Penny Hale said they were donated by her place - Pet Smart in Lacey. Cool place, I've been there!
Best of all I got to participate in my first ever Contest- I got Third Place for Longest Ears (they even included the little big of hair hanging down!) and then drum roll please... I got FIRST PLACE for Fluffiest Dog, just barely beating out a couple of tiny Lap Fluffballs. Here I am with my Trophy. I got another toy as well.
Great Dane - I mean great day! Can't wait till next one!
Holly Dolly Van Dalen, aged 4 months
PS: I really woud like to thank my very own family... my dad and my ma-Pete and Nonni Van Dalen for bringing me today, and for the shampoo and blow dry this morning.
Woof to all you out there!
