SchnOctoberFest 2008

by | Oct 5, 2008 | Canine, Daily life

We enjoyed the beautiful day yesterday visiting with other mini schnauzer owners at SchnOctoberFest, the NC Schnauzer Rescue’s annual big fundraising event. Last year, Riesling won for biggest ears and I donated a custom pastel painting. Eric was able to attend this year, so we took lots of photos since only one of us had to dogsit. :)

As always, Riesling’s favorite part is the car ride anywhere.

At the park, she was perfectly happy to sit in the sandbox and chew on a bone… all the while covering herself in sand.

We didn’t have a costume for pup, but plenty of folks did, including this great cops and robbers entry.

And an escaped dragon. Who I think looks more cuddly than dangerous.
