I turned eight months old on Sunday, the 18th, at Purina Farms in Gray Summit, Missouri. It was probably my last really special milestone because I got to celebrate with two of my brothers and one sister. Purina Farms is a pretty cool place to be as well!
My brother Grunge, sister Varah and I all reunited in Des Moines the previous week at the dog show. This last weekend another brother of mine who lives in Indiana, Sebastian, met us all at Purina for the dog show. Four of the eleven of us getting together is pretty special and we all get along like we have never been apart. We don’t have a photo of us all together because we always rough house and refuse to sit still for photos.
My siblings mom’s didn’t mention anything about us turning eight months old on Sunday, but of course, it is top on my mom’s mind. After the show on Saturday, we found a dog bakery and Olivia helped me pick out treats for everyone so we could celebrate on Sunday. Our family loves a good surprise, and it was definitely something no one ever thought of.
When you drive in to the Purina property, you drive straight at this sign. Mom was surprised as I was scared of it because I could see the dogs peaking over and they worried me. Never the less, I managed to get a half way decent photo.
Not far from the hall with the dog show, they have fenced play/exercise yards dogs can use. I enjoyed running a bit to burn off some energy. Showing is mentally tiring for me, but I still have physical energy I need to burn.
The main entrance to the event hall has two big and I mean really big dogs standing there. One, maybe a Labrador, is stacking. I am trying to self stack, but my feet are not quite right.
On the other side is a poodle. No matter what I do, I can’t look like a Poodle, so I decided to sit next to that one.
Down by the Visitor Center they have this playful dog. He is very friendly and there is no reason to be afraid, so I am alright with posing with the guy.
Just for fun I have this photo of me in the hall where all the show rings are. It is a very nice place. Mom and I both would love to go back again some day. They also do a lot of sports here, dock diving, agility, FastCAT, herding, and more.
My eight month birthday is a wrap. It sure was fun celebrating with some of my blood siblings and my fun sister Olivia! I can’t wait to see what the next month has in store for me! Life is all about new things for me it seems and I sure have a lot of fun!
