Ferdie and I were invited to the Scottish Games in Forest Park today by Kirt, a seminary staffer. Well, Ferdie was invited and I could come as long as the dog came.
Part of the games is a dog parade made up of various Scottish breeds. The announcer, who happened to be Kirt's wife, would call out one breed and the dogs and owners circled the main arena. Then another breed was called and etc.
Before this all began, we visited with other Goldens as well as Scotties, Cairn Terriers, Westies, Wolfhounds and various collie types.
And, who should we run into but our neighbors the Redekers and their dog Charlie. How fun.
Then we ran into some more neighbors, this time Perry and Diane with their Cairn Terrier, Uma.
Then Ferdie saw Kirt.
But there's nothing like Kirt.
Anyway, there were Westies-West Highland Terriers.
And lots of Scotties
Lots of these huge Wolfhounds

There were quite a few Goldens, but as Goldens are wont to do, they did not stay together, some went one way, some the other.
