Usually Sooki enjoys these things but there were a lot of excitable dogs with a high energy vibe.
Can you see how she was not having "fun" ?
Some dogs were downright rude. Jumping on humans is not cool.
Dear old Wendy kept leading me over to a section of fence that she hoped had a gate to let her the heck out of the chaos. Occasionally she had to scold some rude dogs that were not playing nice.
It wasn't exactly the outing we expected.
This evening I headed out to another "meet 'n greet" in downtown Halifax.
Billed as a "Jagmeet and greet" it was an informal opportunity to meet the new head of the federal NDP (New Democratic Party), Jagmeet Singh. I responded to the RSVP and arrived ten minutes early to an event that was to start at 6 pm. So you can imagine my surprise when a line up extended down the street and around the corner !
We stood in line stomping our feet trying to stay warm when we got the news that the venue was full and that it would be at least 30 minutes before they let us in.
In fact I never got in. Well to be honest I could have hung around, but Mr. Singh had quietly arrived and worked his way down the outside line to meet those of us who were waiting outside before he went inside for the speechifying and greeting in there.
Not exactly the outing I expected, but I'm OK with how it turned out...
Here's my pic of me and (hopefully) the next Prime Minister of Canada !
Note: yep, I'm still fooling around that that silly Prisma phone app. Sorry.
