This weekend was the Nova Scotia SPCA’s annual Bark in the Park fundraising event. Once again, we were lucky to have some gorgeous weather and the turn out seemed to be at record highs. With multiple dogs every where one looked, it was a pretty magnificent day for this dog-obsessed blogger.
The highlight was hanging out with Nikita, one of the dogs now up for adoption at the Provincial Animal Shelter. As I am sure you can imagine, she won many hearts during the four hours we were there. Including my own.
I gotta say, it was nice walking a dog who loves everyone she meets, canine and human. I haven’t done that for a long time. Is this how the other half lives?
As a shelter alumnus, Shiva behaved really well. Yeah, she jumped on the registration table, but that’s just a given at this point. She stayed relaxed and enjoyed watching her agility friends during the demonstrations without getting too jealous.
And even though I was too busy to show off her skills, Shiva and my PH were a big hit during the trick competition. There are no signs of stage fright in this mutt. Shiva had no trouble performing one of her favourite cues, jumping into my PH’s arms. She spent the rest of the day proudly displaying her winning medal around her neck.
Though naturally, when it comes to supporting an important cause, everyone wins.
