petrock festival fun times!

hi every bloggie!

Finally I'm getting around to posting my fun times I had a couple weekends ago. Each fall there is a Petrock Festival in Worcester MA. No no! not these pet rocks but a festival for dogs and cats. Silly.

It was a beautiful afternoon.. see..
I of course made sure we stopped in every tent. Look at these yummer cookies- Boston themed. Archie & Agatha could've got one to match their leashes.
And yahoo! I talked mom into buying me my favorite- a carrot! Isn't he cute? This one even talks to me. What does a carrot have to say? I don't know.. I removed the voice box immediately.
Fun Aunt Dee came along and got a bunch of stuff for Tula. You know,every event we go to -no Akitas. None.. nadah. I guess they don't like festivals???
Here was the water station area.. Clifford, Elmo the spraying fountain (he was scary to me) and a bunch of pools. I watched this bulldog hog the pool.. Can you move over please? Bulldogs don't swim do they?
Look at all these pups that came out! Mango & Dexter.. does that look like beautiful Raja?
Airedales, Mastiffs, White GSD, Dachshunds, Italian Greyhounds.. the list goes on. But I was the only Blue Heeler Terrier mix. One of a kind I guess.
Then I hit the cat rescue tent. Ohhhhhh cute lil furballs.
Of course I had to touch noses with them.

And the last stop, the massage tent. Tula's not the only one who can get a massage.. right? Here we go.. I think she really enjoyed it too!
Yep! You gotta love a good pet festival. I still think they should've had a pet rock tent. Rocks can be pets too! Oh one last thing.. my schnauzer pal Oskar wanted to join the bandana bonzana! Another bandit Wahooo! The bandana matches your eyes... ahem... just man to man.

Toodle loo!


  1. That DOES look like My Beautiful Raja. Sigh.

    No Akitas, huh? Just not the social types, I suppose. Can't imagine why.


  2. Darling boy,WHERE DO YOU HERE OF THESE THINGS?? this looked like fun,,except the cat part...(we just can't help it, it's in our genes)the carott kid looks like a riot..and those cookies??to die for...Love A+A( plech rain rain rain...)

  3. I miss the petrock festival, one of the best events in wormtown...did you see my sisters? one with a briard and one with two chihuahuas?

    Thanks for adding the dogs in danger gadget to your blog. I am really excited to be doing someting for the dogs, again, even somethinng so minor....

  4. I woulda liked to check out this event, for sure. All my favorite things, food, water, 4 legged playmates, and oh yeah-did I mention food? Sorry there was not a frog tent either. I'm sure you let them know about this so maybe next year they will add one.

    You are truly one of a kind>and there's nothin' wrong with that at all!

    your fellow funster,
    Chester ;0=)

  5. Hi Norwood - that looks like tremendous fun! Those biscuits were our favourite photo - he he he! We're drooling over here....yummy! Good to see Oskar has joined your bandit gang - he's a natural and looks very handsome (and we say that in the butchest of ways of course...!) Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  15. Looks like lots of fun times Norwood...especially the massage with that pretty charm them all don't you! Hope you had a fun weekend. I got stuck inside all day today cuz Kevin was in Atlanta & Sharon is in TX. It's allright though cuz me & the other cats around here are watching anything we want on the tube! We broke open a few brews too! Fun, fun, fun...
    love ya man,

  16. Hey Norwood. Your rock festival looked a riot. Guess Akitas are more the stay at home sort, I never seem to see any anywhere this side of the pee either. Though the same could be said of my good self. Unless I look into the mirror. That massage must of been good cos the loved up lookie you were giving that legged was sooper cute. Mom made me write that Norwood....

    Wiry loves and kisses Eric xx

  17. What a cool looking festival - with massages no less!

  18. Woo had more blue sky than I had at my Tails on The Trails!

    It looks like woo had lots and lots of fun!


  19. I love the idea of pet rocks. I hear the vet bills are quite reasonable! ;)

  20. Hi Norwood,

    Maggie and Mitch

  24. We're glad that our race (Airedales) was represented, too.
