Christina’s school held a fundraiser today for orphaned children of AIDS parents today. The funds went via the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Sounds like they are compassionate but let me tell you, their compassion doesn’t extend to old mostly deaf and blind dogs with foul breath.
The fundraiser was a dog show. We entered Teeki in two categories:
Best senior dog – Teeki placed in this competition; she came in third. I would have felt better, though, if there were more than three dogs entered.
Best personality – This sounds like the category for dogs that can’t make it in any other. Because of this, everyone and their dog entered. Teeki didn’t place.
We could have won in the category of best dog-owner look alike. We were guaranteed second place because only one dog entered. Somehow I missed that.
The money went to a good cause but it will be a likely be the last time we have a prize-winning dog. Still, for now, we’re number three!
P.S. We won a copy of Walter the Farting Dog, complete with a plush Walter that makes fart sounds when squeezed. Seems appropriate somehow.
