Unfortunately, the day of the costume contest was a complete mess! After weeks without rain, we had a HUGE storm. Most of the morning was overcast and damp but it was not yet raining. But OF COURSE, just when the costume contest started, the rain picked up and it started pouring! We managed to get Daisy registered, viewed by the judges, and photographed by a professional (for a small donation to charity), then decided to walk 3 blocks to a friend's house to wait out the rain.
About half an hour later, we headed back to the contest to see if the winners were being announced yet. To my dismay, everyone was gone and some workers were taking down the tents! But wait, all hope was not lost - one of the workers recognized us and told us that Daisy had won.... for Best Little Dog!
The winning pug doesn't look so happy with her prize, but just wait until I cash that in for some yummy pug treats! Or maybe a pug hoodie? Or a new toy? Actually, we don't need any new toys since my boyfriend just ordered THREE new ropey raccoons to replace Daisy's favorite toy that he just refuses to wash! (He claims it has flavor.)
Anyway, I'm so happy that she won! My hard work was not for nothing. :)
