Pierson tends not to get along with other male dogs so I don’t usually take him to pet events. But I took him to the Dogs Got Talent event at The Dog House in Lawrence, KS this past Saturday and he did very well. He did snap at Buster the Golden Retriever mix once but only as a warning and not as an attack. The two came close to playing together later – close but not quite. Pierson gets along better with Roxy the Dachshund who he has met a few times previously. He is not sure what to think of kids. He let the girl pet him a few times, especially if she had treats. But he wasn’t quite sure if he should trust her.
Notice in the above photo that Pierson is wearing some sort of harness. This is the back of her Bergan Pet Car Harness without the tether attached.
I love Wordless Wednesday but it is so difficult not to say a few words. Enjoy other great pet photos in today’s blog hop!

My dog, Maya, and I had a great time at the Paws in the Park pet event at Gage Park in Topeka, Kansas. I had a booth there for Pet Auto Safety.com and Animal Figurine Store.com. Maya was there to show off her dog seat belt. You can see her wearing her dog seat belt in the photo above. The black harness is her dog seat belt. (I left the connecting strap in the car so it wouldn’t dangle and annoy her.) Maya is also playing with her new toy which we got from one of the vendors next to us. Other photos include a pair of Irish Wolfhounds and a Borzoi.
There were lots of vendors at the event. Many were for profit and many more were for non-profit. Proceeds from the Paws in the Park pet event went to the Topeka Helping Hands Humane Society, including the cost we paid to have our booth there.
Other Paws in the Park pet event activities included pet contests and a dog walk. Maya really wanted to enter the pet contest for best trick (she has been working on some cute tricks) but she had to stay at the booth with me. She still had fun, though. She got to meet lots of people and dogs. She played with some dogs and didn’t jump on or lick anyone when they petted her. She was a really good dog and she is looking forward to the next pet event.

Yesterday, August 16th, 2008, PetAutoSafety.com participated in the Tails on the Trails event at Ad Astra Park and Swimming Pool. Sephi and Maya came too in order to show off their seat-belt-wearing-skills. We all had a great time. Maya and Sephi made a lot of new friends and PetAutoSafety.com spread the word about the importance of keeping your pet safe when they are in the car.
The Tails on Trails event was sponsored by Lenexa Parks and Recreation in conjunction with the Lenexa Animal Control. Lots of animal-related businesses had booths at the event including Woof’s Plan & Stay, Bark Busters, Metro Pet Magazine, PawPrints Magazine, and of course, PetAutoSafety.com. The fun activities which took place at this park included puppy swimming, pet/owner look-a-like contest, a bat presentation, pet show and parade, gentle dog training demo, and the Lenexa Police K9 demonstration. There were also fun kid activities such as Make Your Own Dog Treats and the Fire Depart Deluge where the fire department let loose a stream of water from high in the sky so that kids and pets could play in the giant sprinkler.
