Stella made it out to Oktoberfest a couple of weeks ago where she was able to charm a whole new crew of admirers. It was really too big a crowd and she was overstimulated (probably by the smell of brats and other roasted meaty delicacies. She kept diving under people and food tents to get some little bite of bread they dropped or licking God-knows-what off the pavement. It was pretty exhausting and I was mad from trying to hold her back all day. This weekend is Barktoberfest. Not sure if we're going to make it there or not. Honestly it would be a lot more attractive if they would include something for the humans there too. Fifteen minutes of organic dog treats and useless swag and I'm pretty much ready to go home. We may go just to check out the costumes though. Could be fun.

Stella looks happy. Maybe next time a few brats would satisfy her and settle her down. (Smuggled in so they don't cost an arm and a leg.)

Are you taking turns with the outings for Stella and Diesel?

I'm really a little surprised at your attitude regarding Stella's clean up efforts (insert wink). She's really just doing her part and volunteering for one of the worst jobs. Goooooooooooooooo Stella!

I'm with you on the Barkfest and other doggie venues. They're good for a few minutes. Then it all looks the same.
Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
Stumpy and me

It was actually fun (especially the polka music) It's gotten so big they now have a country music stage which I think is ridiculous but whatever I suppose. As for outings, it's true - we are taking turns because (together) they turn into a couple of thugs in the presence of strange dogs.
