Girls Day Out at the Dog Olympics

Mum & I had a "Girls' Day Out" yesterday. Dad had gone on a mountain bike cross country race so, we gals had our own outing at the Dog Olympics in Central Park (no, not the one in New York City) in Bandar Utama. It was a gloomy morning but that didn't stop the doggies and their dog-loving humans from turning out in full force.

Although we didn't participate in any of the Dog Olympics events, we had a gala time meeting all the other doggies. At the rate I'm going, my social calendar is going to be busier than my humans! Let me show you some of the new friends I sniffed, eer...met (Beagles,Schnauzers, Spaniels, Huskies, Terriers, etc, etc) :



















Budding photographers and professional photographers were out in full force. I lost count how many times complete strangers pointed their cameras at me. Big, expensive SLRs, compact point and shoot cameras, mobile phone cameras were all being clicked away. Luckily, I'm an "experienced" model coz my humans are forever taking photographs of me, especially since I started the blog.

I managed to dodge the photographers long enough to catch a break.
Then, as I waited for the agility event to start, mum decided to take more pictures of me...
Finally, I managed to watch the agility event. Such clever dogs! A couple of them were rather entertaining. One Jack Russell decided that he prefered to run outside the course, than inside. His poor human had to chase after him!
What a super duper outing. Even the rain didn't dampen the day!

Sounds like fun! I wanted to go but LS said no as it was raining. A little rain doesn't hurt.

What a lovely event! Too bad you didn't participate - maybe next time :) By the way, I love the new look of your blog!

Kess, I didn't know you were there. Maybe I was just too busy to realize! Hope you enjoyed yourself yesterday. Yesterday was a pawfect day with no sun at all! I enjoyed swimming in the lake the whole day.

Looks like fun! That's a great outing for you and your h-mom. You are so handsome, no wonder you were such a "photo opportunity."

Thor said...

Looks like you and your mama had a lot of fun at the Dog Olympics! So cool meeting all those doggies! I like agility too! You sure look like a great model posing to all that photographers!

Hi Happy, You're right a lil' rain doesn't hurt. Anyway, it was only for a lil' while. Maybe next time.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Xsara, I've never done agility before so it's not likely I'll be participating in any future events. Still, it's fun to watch the action.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Amber, I saw a retriever swimming in the lake fetching a bottle. Was that you? Sorry, couldn't recognise you without your clothes pegs :-)

Kess & Her Mama said...

Booker, Had a great time. Of course, being a beagle, I didn't always cooperate with the photographers (I don't even always do it for my humans, let alone strangers!) as there were so much interesting scents to sniff out.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Thor, It was great watching all the action! Glad you like agility. Do you also participate?

Amber-Mae said...

Kess, I was the only Retriever swimming in that lake the whole day. Yes, that was me retrieving that bottle.

Hi Kess, see you have a great outing at the olympics...you are a a a great attraction too to all these hansome doggies out there. Cheers.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Amber, I should have said Hello then. I even took a pic of you but it was really small coz I was quite far away. Never mind. Next time.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Sweet Jasmine. Had a great time.

MONA AND THE MOMMY! said...

Wow, that sure looks like fun!!

Did ya see any dachshunds like me?
I'm gonna work the kissing booth at the Reliant Dog show on Friday July the 18th for DROH and they don't want me to cut my hair cause most people have never even seen a wirehaired dachsie.

Love all the pictures of all them different doggies.

Love ya...Mona

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Mona, Come to think of it, didn't see any Daschunds, esp wire-haired ones like you. You're one of a kind!

River said...

You got to meet some more beagles, too! That looked like such a fun day. Of course they take pictures of you, you are beautiful! Maybe Olympic modeling competition next year...

love & wags,
River

It looks like you had a lot of fun meeting and greeting all the other four legged humans!

That camera flashy thing is forever going off in my home too! It drives me crazy! But shhhh...secretly, I love the attention!

Slurp!

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi River, It was a very exciting day. As it turns out the Star newspaper published a photograph of me and mum! Woohoo!

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Mr-T, I think we should start charging modelling fees for patiently posing for our humans, don't you think?

Thanks for signing my guest book.
