Stadium Toyota - Our First SEGD Event
On Sunday August 16th, 2009 Fred and I took Bingo to our first SEGD event at Stadium Toyota: Dog Day Afternoon. Stadium Toyota sponsors the event, which helps to raise money for SEGD and their many programs including Paws for Patriots.
SEGD had asked for puppies in particular to be there so Fred and I brought Bingo. Blossom and
Apollo (aka Polly), two very cute Australian Shepard puppies were there as well as a smooth-coated collie puppy named Becca. At right, you can see Bingo and Blossom playing with illegal toys (balls are not approved toys, but for a couple of hours, the SEGD people said it would be ok) in the water. Bingo was too sure of the water at first,
was disappointed I had forgotten my flip recorder. It would have made a good video.
In this photo, you can see that Bingo has many toys to choose from, but like the spoiled puppy he is he only wants the one Blossom has. Which annoys Polly, naturally. So the normally macho Bingo, who rules the roost at the McLean house, finds himself pummeled by the Aussie girls.
Ultimately, they are too much for him and after several hours of trying to be manly, he gives up and hides under the bench.
We finally give in and take him home.
