Barkworld 2013

Barkworld 2013 is in the books.  This was our 3rd time going in the 4 years of its existence.  Lots of SWAG, good info, and good times.  Ossian and Koda loved daycare!  (Ossian definitely put the “Bark” in Barkworld… he was very talkative during daycare.  Best Friends Pet Care does such an awesome job! They need one in Lexington!  We were glad to hear Victoria Stilwell again, as well as many other speakers.  We are already looking forward to next year!

On the long way home Sunday, we stopped at Newtown Dream Dog Park and Chattapoochie Dog Park in Georgia.  Newtown Dream was very cool.  They have Astroturf instead of grass, which is much less messy, and Ossian loved the fountain pad. There were also several big dogs there, NONE of which Ossian went after! (He probably would have lost the battle with the Irish Wolfhound that dwarfed him).  Chattapoochie was half closed, but still a decent park with fountains.  The dogs slept most of the way home, except for our stop at Petco to spend our gift cards.  The dogs will need a few days to recuperate (as will Mommy and I), but we all enjoyed ourselves!
