Our Fort Dodge weekend was three days of fun filled, action packed days for people and pups. Our weekend started early Friday when we grabbed Mom’s cousin, and took her along with us to Dayton, Iowa which is just outside Fort Dodge. Mom and her cousin wanted to visit places their ancestors lived after they came over here from Sweden in the 1800’s.
Dayton was the town where most of the history is found. We spent lots of time in the car while they toured homes, farms, cemeteries, and other things. Every now and then we got to get out and walk around a bit. This mural is in “downtown” Dayton. We thought it was pretty cute.
Saturday night, Mom and her cousin went out to dinner without us. We stayed in our hotel room and were good girls. While out, they found this super cool piano. Now we know there are like twenty or more painted old pianos around Fort Dodge, but we had no time to go looking for them. This one is real nice.
Saturday and half of Sunday, we were at the Webster County Fairgrounds for FastCAT and barn hunt. The fun we had there made up for the boredom of being in the car all day on Friday..
It was super windy in Fort Dodge, so we couldn’t pose with our ribbons until we got home. We each had four great FastCAT runs, and my last one was a personal best. I have short legs, but I can run like crazy! It is the last FastCAT for us for this year probably, but we will be back at it in the spring. Olivia had a stellar barn hunt run Saturday and earned a leg in Senior with second place. I earned my seventh Q in Masters on Sunday. All in all our Fort Dodge Weekend was a fast blast. Traveling and doing our sports is always fun and makes us all happy!
