I've been telling my husband that I want to go to Lincoln but he's been a few times and he keeps telling me there is nothing different there and every thing is the same. Let's just say it's been challenging to stay positive and motivated. We have adventurous spirits, love to travel and enjoy the outdoors. Our spirits have been deflated a little bit since we've been here. After much prodding I finally convinced him it would be good to try something new that included the dog. So to the Greater Lincoln Obedience Club 3rd Annual Canine Carnival we went. It took about an hour to get there. Blanca loves to take trips, although I think she was a bit sad that we didn't bring her pack on this trip. This event was not like anything we've ever done before.
We were a little disappointed that with the beautiful weather we've been having that some of the events weren't held outside. But I guess it's not usually this nice in Nebraska in March. We continued to have fun participating in the Doggy Cake Walk and Fido Says. I was hoping to enter Blanca in the best smile contest but when I went to sign up they were taking names for the doggy look-a-like contest. So I signed up my husband because I think Blanca looks more like him than me. Let's just say he wasn't exactly thrilled that I didn't communicate that one with him first.
Of course the Cookie Monster and well all of us were grumpy not having got our ice-cream so we had to find some food. We went to downtown Lincoln, I guess that's what they call it, and found us some Soul Food.
When we got home we went through Blanca's goodie bag and she played with her new toy. One of the bags of treats was not labeled. They were awfully colorful and looked like candy. We wondered if they were for dogs or humans. I tried one. It tasted like a Nerd. Would you have tried one?
We had a fun Sunday afternoon trying something new. It's always nice when the doggy can be included too. I'm looking forward to exploring more of Lincoln, after all I have to try that Ice cream. Have you ever been to anything like a doggy carnival before? I would love to hear all about it.
Hope you have a great start to your week!
