Ferdie took part in the Scottish breed dog show at the Games in Forest Park today. One of our neighbors came with Ferdie's pal Lola who is a Bearded Collie. Each breed paraded around the ring while the announcer gave a description of that particular dog. Kind of like the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show only in groups and there were no winners or losers.
While there Sharalyn ran into the woman who bred Lola, the other Beardies are Lola's nieces and nephews.
There's Kirt in the blue shirt. He works at the seminary and is also one of the chairmen of the Scottish Games. He brought his Cairn Terrier and his Scottie.
Kirt's grandson gave his pups water. It was quite warm for dogs out there in the sun today.
Ferd got greeted.
Some of the food being sold was out of the ordinary.
No idea what neeps and tatties are. Tatties may be tators but it's a guess. Annnndd...the line was long to get one of these pasties.
A large crowd comes out to see the dogs, the people completely circle the area.
As Ferdie and I did our Golden Retriever walk around the inner circle, we had to keep stopping because so many adults and kids wanted to pet him. He was very happy to let them.
This is Kirt's wife, Doreen. She's the chairman of the Scottish dog breed show and also does all the announcing and dog biographies. Since she is originally from Scotland, her accent is charming and made for a day like today.
And lastly, the Scotch tasting booth. Very popular.
