There are a lot of baseball teams that have one game a year when dogs are allowed. Some call it “Dog Days of Summer”. Yesterday, at Chase Field in Phoenix, was “Bark at the Park” and He was going. Do you think He’d ask me to go? In two words, and I quote verbatim-ABSOLUTELY NOT! “Well, why not?”. He said something about working and the dogs weren’t allowed in His work area. So I stayed home and He reported what happened. He left early and all the dogs were supposed to gather around entry gate K. He went looking for a Scottie and didn’t see one. In one of His smarter moves, He asked the terriers that were there. He found Archie and Roni (who is a rescue from the local Black and White Rescue that specializes in Scotties and Westies).
Archie and Roni, who are from Mesa, hadn’t seen any Scotties but immediately went on the lookout to be helpful. Next he asked Rowdy and Rockie from Tempe.
They hadn’t seen any but there was a black Cairn Terrier somewhere. On His search for the Cairn to see if she had seen any Scotties, He encountered Tyson from Scottsdale who confirmed the Cairn sighting but also hadn’t seen a Scottie.
It was looking grim. He found the Cairn-it was Wrigley from Phoenix
Wrigley hadn’t seen any yet, but told Him that there were Westies about.
He had hope when he saw a black dog in the distance. On further review, it was a Pulli-a sheepdog from Hungary.
Then the dogs got called into the park. They had a parade around the outfield warning track.
After the parade, the dogs were all together in a
ghetto section. In one last attempt, he asked if anyone saw a black dog with a beard. The common response was “did you lose one?”. Finally a Golden pointed out a black dog with a beard.
It turned out to be Starr-a Giant Schnauzer from Mesa. Starr, you’re the honorary Scottie for the event.
Yes, they had a game-The home team won four to three. Milwaukee tried to cheat on “bark in the park” day by starting a pitcher named Randy WOLF. It didn’t work
Seeing that there were NO Scotties there (33,481 peeps and 352 dogs), I’m glad I didn’t go. I heard that, Stuart-what’s that about sour grapes? Anyway all’s right with the world because He brought home the give-away
It’s a collapsible canvas dog water dish for the car. How sweet to remember moi. I am a little disappointed at the local Scotties-the Pulli got a representative there and there wasn’t one Scottie (well, Starr was a Scottie for the day).
