So my owners were getting ready for this super fancy event and I heard them saying that it was a fundraiser for the Michigan Animal Rescue League. How nice is that? These human people try to raise money for dogs like us- I guess this makes up for all the times my owners have tried to give me a bath.
I was watching them get ready from the comfort of my bed. I knew this was a super fancy event just by watching my lady owner because there is a direct relationship between how much stuff she puts on her face and the fanciness of the event. The only thing I was a little bummed about is I knew that when they went to this event, they would be leaving me alone for the night. I get lonely pretty easily. But wait, all of a sudden I heard them say the magic words "Coopy, we are going for a car ride". My tail started wagging as fast as I run when I see a squirrel. I ran down stairs and jumped into the car.
It was a pretty long drive, but soon we arrive at this huge park-like place... a doggy paradise. To all my dog friends reading this, you have to visit it! So my owners put that dumb leash thing on my collar, and we get out of the car. I hate that leash thing so much- I feel like I can never run around freely when I am on the leash. We start walking to the entrance, and I see all the humans in super fancy dresses and dapper looking suits. Not gonna lie, I felt pretty underdressed. They could have at least thrown a bow tie around my collar. Don't they know that dogs can get embarrassed too.
We start walking around and I take in my surroundings. I see off in the distance a buffet. Boy do I love buffets. I started to walk faster, pulling my owner behind me. When we arrive there, my owner said "no, silly, that is for people only"... talk about discrimination. My spirits were crushed, but then a few yards down I saw another buffet, and this time it was one just for my species! They had dog treats in all shapes and sizes. They even had a treat in the shape of a martini... don't ask me how I know what that is.
After my delicious snack, we kept walking to burn off the calories. We then got to this little art tent. They even had art projects for dogs! The lady working there had a plate of green paint, and then a huge piece of white paper. I saw all of the other dogs stepping in the paint and then leaving all of their paw prints on the paper. It was the coolest thing ever- talk about marking your territory. So I started to do it, and it was the funnest thing ever! I kept going back for more paint. Then a light bulb hit me... if my paw prints can come on to this white paint... could I leave a mark on other things? I stepped in the paint once more, and then I ripped out of my leash and took a bolt. I ran all over this huge park and showed everyone my love by jumping on to them. To my surprise, they weren't too happy with me. Everyone loves my cuddling and licking at home... Also, I made their boring, black clothes so much more colorful with the paint. I kept running around and around, but then out of no where this old man came and caught me so I couldn't run anymore. It was fun while it lasted. I soon see my owners sprinting to me, and boy did they look embarrassed... ha.
Right after that thrilling incident, we had to go home. I am still not sure why- I was having the time of my life.
A week later I see a newspaper in the mail highlighting this event, and guess who made the front page.
