Rugby rode wonderfully around the show in the morning in his new, spiffy sling carrier. Cabot’s human is traveling with us, and as a previous Frenchie owner, we were drawn to their Meet The Breeds booth and helped set up and walk dogs for a couple of hours. Rugby spent that time being a French Bulldog imposter, giving out illegitimate “French Kisses.”
Some people noticed that he didn’t match the booth, and other did not. We also met Vegas and her human, from Danes Can Q, who mentioned Ruthie, the French Bulldog, from Life With Big Dogs! Small world right?
Later on we took another round through the vendors. I still have more of our favorites to list, but we have resorted to blogging in the convention center. The hotel internet is horrid and that is where my list is.
We did make it back to GoPet today, and Rugby went from a pretend Frenchie to a pretend hamster. They have a door that they can put on the wheel to enclose the dog, but we declined since Rugby has enough training that I should be able to keep him on a wheel for some amount time. We bought Salmon Cat Treats from the Grizzly Pet Products booth just before we tried the wheel and used them to lure Rugby forward. He wasn’t nervous at all. He walked calmly up to the treat, and rode the wheel back down and repeated over and over again. It was cute.
