In July, our local affiliate of the Houston Astro’s had Relay For Life night. My friend, Kelly, and I set up a booth to advertise for our Bark For Life event which will take place the end of October. As part of that, we were allowed to bring our dogs to the game! Tippy had a blast.
I think she thought everyone who came through the gate was there just to see her and give her some lovin’. I was very proud of how well she behaved and handled the crowd. She was a great ambassador for the event.
Kelly brought one of her dogs, Kimura, with her. She and Tippy got along well, except for the one time that Kelly was petting Tippy and Kimura got jealous. Silly dog.
The Assistant General Manager of the team, Kelsey, was excited to get to see our dogs and get some puppy loving.
We walked around the park, visiting with the fans and watching the game. One couple commented on how calm she was and wondered if she had always been that way. Of course, my answer was “no.” It takes time, work, and a little maturing from the puppy stage.
I hope I get the opportunity to take her to at least one game next year. Maybe they will bring back “Bark in the Park” night. Paws crossed.
