Dogs, dogs, everywhere! :)  
Yesterday Mark & I decided to take Sydney to our local Humane Society's K-9 day at Thomas Square. It was an entire day devoted to doing nice things for your furry friends (like getting them a mini-massage or entering them in a hotdog eating contest, etc.) It's been exactly one year since poor Sydney was so ill that we weren't sure she was going to make it and we wanted to treat her to a nice day and celebrate the fact that she's still in our lives.

While we were standing in line to get her a mini-massage, we happened to meet a bunch of other nice dog owners with adorable fuzzy (and some not so fuzzy, but still extremely adorable) doggies of their own. :) I took pictures of a few of the cute dogs that I met while we were standing in line yesterday. :)

They're all so cute!

Malu was such a ham! He just loved the camera. :)

Ohana was a little shy at first, but she warmed up to Sydney right away!

I never found out what this pug's name was, but he sure was a cutie!

Nani was very friendly and really resembled my Mom's dog, Yuki. :)

We finally got Sydney her mini-massage and ended up winning a photo mug from Fuji, but definitely the best part of the day was getting to meet the other dogs in line and their owners. :) I'm very glad we ended up going. :)

While we were in the area, we also bought our tickets to see Lea Salonga in concert on the 26th. :) I didn't want to buy them online or over the phone because of my last bad experience with Ticketmaster :P. At least buying them in person assures me that I have the tickets (and I saved on that outrageous per ticket convenience fee) :) I'm really looking forward to the concert since no national tours or theatre performers usually come all the way down here to perform! :P

And finally, I haven't been sleeping that well recently. :P I think it has a lot to do with some decisions I have to make regarding work (which I'll post about in a locked post a little later - once I've tried to sort out my own feelings about it). :P Hope you're all having a nice Sunday - I'm off to give my fuzzy dog her pills. :P

Ha! Yoda is such a cute name for a pug! :) One of my closest friends is a huge pug lover and as soon as she gets back from her honeymoon, she's going to buy one.

I'm glad Sydney had a good day. Those dogs are so cute. :)

She had a lot of fun, but was really just happy that we were taking her with us when we left the house. :) She loves to go outside. :) And all those dogs were too cute - now Mark wants to get a Corgi (after seeing Ohana). :)

Awwwww mini massages for doggies. Very cool!

Sounds like a good time!

Im so glad everything did work out for Sydney and she IS still around and doing well and able to enjoy today!

I was so shocked that they had a special doggie massage therapist onsite. :) He was a HUGE hit with the dogs, though. :)

And thanks so much Angie, especially for all your support last year when she was ill. I don't know what I'd do if anything ever happened to her. :( *HUGS*

I'm glad Sydney made new friends!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on October 25th, 2004 01:13 am (UTC)
She did! She just loved Ohana! :)

Aren't they? I wish I could've taken them all home with me. ;)

We have a Nani in our apartment building! So cute, all of them!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on October 25th, 2004 01:15 am (UTC)
They were all so cute and their owners were all so nice! :) Standing in that long line was the best thing we did all day. :)

Thanks for sharing the photos - you are right, they are all cute. :) I'm glad that you and Sydney had a nice time meeting them all. Is it going to be a little easier to give Sydney the pills?

I hope you will be able to sort out your feelings in regard to work and that you will sleep much better, soon. Should you need somebody to talk to, please know that I'm here.

*Hugs* you tight, Sheri

Sydney had a great time. :) She's usually very shy around other dogs, but she really seemed to warm up to a few of them, especially Ohana (the Corgi). :) And we haven't had any problems giving Sydney her medication recently *knocks wood* hopefully the trend will continue. :)

Thanks so much for always being such a good friend, Sabine! :) Big *HUGS* to you! Please take care and I hope that all is well with Micki. :)
