As part of Bailie’s Mom and me day, she got to use her PR Dog job attending the Minnesota Pet Expo. I went to two of them last year and really didn’t want to go again. Since it is free and Mom wanted to go downtown anyway, she took Bailie and went.
The best part of the whole pet expo in Mom’s opinion was the pug in the remote controlled car. This pug was cruising around the expo the entire time. Now Bailie wants to get a car like this to drive around at BlogPaws next year. I feel it would be foolish, but who knows!
Guess who Bailie and Mom met at the expo? Yep, Spencer, his mom and aunt. I met them there last year. Spencer was real busy checking out stuff in the booths, but little Bailie I heard, was trying to give him kisses every chance she got! What a silly teenage girl! If you don’t know Spencer, he is a fellow dog blogger also from Minnesota. You can check out his blog here.
After entering the expo area, Bailie drug everyone over to the wabbit agility area. Spencer was checking out the wabbits with Bailie, but didn’t seem too interested in them. I hope he isn’t ill or something??? How can a dog be so calm around live wabbits?
Bailie’s favorite part of the pet expo was the agility wabbit area. She couldn’t believe her nose! Huge wabbits behind flimsy fencing there for her to
hunt down watch doing agility. Bailie was beside herself with over excitement. She wanted a wabbit. Mom thought they were adorable and told Bailie to leave them alone. They did become a problem as every time they got near the wabbits, Bailie let out her loudest and proudest hunting call and went nuts on her leash. Way to show you are a hound, little sis!
They stopped by the PetFinder booth. As you can see Bailie was negotiating with the woman. She wanted to take home a pallet of those boxes of treats behind the table. The woman thought she was kidding, but Bailie was serious. She loves good made in the USA chicken jerky. She managed to score three bags, not a pallet 🙁
How about these futons? Are they a cool idea or what? Bailie tested one out and wanted to take it home with her, but Mom said no. She tried to work out a deal for doing a review on the blog, but no luck.
Meeting and greeting, not to mention trying so hard not to cause a scene with the agility wabbits is hard work, so Bailie settled in for a free ten minute canine massage. Sure looks like she was enjoying it!
Before leaving, she stopped by the bakery booth. According to Bailie, everything smelled delicious! Katie is turning thirteen on the 27th this month, so Bailie picked up a nice birthday bone cookie to give her on her special day.
Speaking of birthdays, Bailie got a surprise package from our friends, Harley, Charlie, Rachael, and Kevin, of My Dog Likes. Bailie met them all at BlogPaws and was doing a lot of huggling with Rachael. They sent her this adorable HuggleHound! Since Bailie is a hound and a huggler, it is absolutely perfect and she loves it! Mom thinks he is pretty cute too and loves his huge back paws! Thank you so much!
Hugglehound makes such a cute honking noise, and he has a crinkle tail. Bailie adores crinkle toys so he is in good paws with her!
