Puppy cuddles on the sofa til 2.
But then we got tickets to the Police Dog Competitions from the guy who designed their artwork (see it here: http://www.police.edmonton.ab.ca/Pages/ctrials/trials_home.asp). We got there in time to see the simulated crime take-downs, where a dog and handler apprehend two criminals. What good dogs! They spotted the bad guys, held them while their human counterpart disarmed the criminals. They had to hold on until their target stopped fighting, and at one point was asked to chase down a guy who was running away, but stopped short of biting on command.
And over in Sportex way, the EKC fall dog show. I, of course, love dog and cat shows. It’s a way of being around all the different kinds of dogs without actually having to own one. My heart almost exploded! When we got there, they were judging Papillons and Dalmations. There were a good number of French bulldogs, which we were considering before we found Henry. And there were two Henries– one black and one brindle Boston terrier. I have to say, even though they were show dogs, they were not cuter than our fella.
