first prize for biggest ears!

by | Oct 7, 2007 | Art, Canine, Daily life

This past Saturday, pup and I attended SchnOctoberFest to support the wonderful folks who made Riesling’s rescue possible. This year I donated a custom pet portrait as a raffle prize and I was delighted to see a whole bunch of tickets in my tupperware container. :)


(I actually won the raffle right next to mine!)

We also entered the longest ears contest and Riesling took first prize among the schnauzers. Measuring her was a bit of a challenge, but we determined her ears to be four inches long!


Not only did we have a lovely time reconnecting with everyone from the rescue, including her foster mom, Kathleen, but we won raffle prizes as well. Eric and I have a free movie and dinner to look forward to and pup has a variety of new toys… including a florescent orange gecko that she has very much taken to.
