This weekend was the annual Westfest in the trendy West Town neighborhood of Chicago. Since they have a section just for dogs called Petfest, we decided to check it out. We did go last year, but heard this year was bigger and better, so we were excited! Well, my personal opinion was that it was a bust, and Mom and Dad agreed. There were lots of doggies there, but very little things for dogs to do. They had a few swimming pools for the pooches to cool off in and an optional dog wash section (no thanks, thank goodness Mom had just put on my flea and tick preventative just before we left). Other than that there were a handful of dog store booths, but nothing great. We were all disappointed. Here are few pics we took.
The pool was nice and cool, but I am used to something bigger to swim in, like a lake. He he!
I figured since I couldn't swim in it, I would drink out of it. Ahh, so refreshing!
We met so many dogs, and Mom kept forgetting to take pictures, but she did manage to whip the camera out for this guy. I first walked past and then came in for a closer look. Mango? Mango, is that you?
You sure do look like my relentlessly huge pal, Mango. This guy, while super huge was so nice. Mom loved petting him. He just sat there like a good boy and let Mom pet him and give him a hug.
So, while not a great festival, I did have a good time meeting all of the dogs, Mom bought me a new collar and I got to share Mom's taco with her. Mmmmmmm, yummers! I hope you all had a great weekend. I'm off to catch up on my Olympic coverage.
