I thought I had published every picture I have taken for the Boone Area Humane Society, but while checking out the backlog I realized that was in error.
I never published pictures from the Pufferbilly Days Pet Show. Now the subject of this post called in the Pufferbilly Days Dog Show, but it was actually a pet show, where wisely, nobody entered a cat.
I would guess that these would be the final pictures I will ever publish that I took for the Boone Area Humane Society, but Kio tells me that I might not be retired yet. As far as the Humane Society goes, I do whatever Kio wants.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the day:
My Mom was a judge for the pet show.
If you are wondering why I’ve never entered Naima into a pet show, well the pet show world isn’t ready for what she brings to the table.
More pictures from the 2017 Pufferbilly Days Pet Show.
The show is dominated by dogs. If my memory serves correctly, there are 2 dog categories. Best Trick and Best Tail Wag. I feel that there is one more category, but I can’t place it. Maybe it is best overall.
There are plenty more pictures from the Pufferbilly Days Pet Show on their way!
So Willy didn’t actually win 8 events during Pufferbilly Days, but he did finish 2nd with his partner Avril in the Anytime Fitness Amazing Race. He backed this up by winning the Pufferbilly Days 5K for his age group the following morning.
Below is a very pixelated video taken by Jesse as Willy’s team finished the Amazing Race.
Although they were the first team to cross the finish line, another team finished with a better time and took home the 500 smackers.
Some of the tasks they had to complete along the way included:
Putting together a puzzle
Counting cars in the Pat Clemons lot
Make a free throw blind folded
100 push ups or eat a randomly selected amount of hot dogs
100 situps or drink 32 oz coolie
Find the prices of 10 items in Hy-Vee
I think I’ll have to watch Willy complete the whole event if he does it again next year.
This is a picture of the Basilica in Dyersville. This picture was actually originally selected for entry, but I decided that I didn’t really like the way it looked when it was printed, so it was removed.
