Health Fair Fun

Last week our local university 
had a health fair on Thursday and Friday

Our training director had a table set up 
cause you know that having pets 
makes peeps happier and healthier

On the right is Jane, our instructor, and her dog Teneille
On the left is one of our training friends, 
Michelle and her dog Angus

Jane asked if Mom & I 
would like to come and help on Friday
and we said yes!

I was quite nervous at first
There were lots of people and noise
but mom reassured me that all was OK
and I started to relax

 I was quite popular, 
everyone wanted to pet the cute pug
 and soon I was enjoying the all the attention 
while mom told people about our classes

We had some puzzles to play with

I was happy to demonstrate the Snuffle Mat

treats are hidden in the mat 
and I sniffed and snuffled them right into my mouth

It was a fun day and I was exhausted when we got home
I hope we can do it again next year!
