To my fellow canines . . .Well Cyndy, Rock and I are on vacation this week but before we left I went to a great party on Saturday. It was the annual Pooch Pool Party in Meaford. It was held at the Blue Dolphin Pool and the great part about it was that there were no humans allowed in the water. Pretty cool eh. There were about 20 of us dogs just swimming and having fun. They also organized games for us. There was fastest swimmer, biggest slash, best trick and owner look alike. Lots of fun but I didn’t win anything. But If there was a prize for most social I would be a shoein or is it pawin? All this fun was free but donations were appreciated. All money raised was in aid of the Beautiful Joe Foundation.
Now for those of you who don’t know let me enlighten you. Beautiful Joe was a dog from Meaford who was rescued from mistreatment. His story inspired Margaret Marshall Saunders to write the 1893 bestseller “Beautiful Joe” which contributed to worldwide awareness of animal cruelty. Rock has read it and says it’s a must read for any animal lover. Another “must” is attendance next year at the Pool Party. It’s always the Saturday of the Labour Day weekend. I hope to see you there. Tell them Bonnie-Jane sent you.
Well, bye for now. Time to explore more of Ontario!
