We made it successfully to Buda and got settled into the hotel on Friday night. Up at 7 and out to the park. Here's Cash being cute (as usual)

And here's the DH with Cash and Miller. Cash is obviously hoping for some of that popcorn.

Here's what Miller seemed to think about the whole thing

It was actually really cool the whole morning and Miller needed his blankie. Since I didn't bring one to the park a towel had to do.

More to come . . .

This was one of the more unusual things we saw :conf4:

I think my favourite on is of Miller "opting out." And any day you can wear shorts doesn't qualify as cool :). What's up with the balloon guy? Why on earth would you do that? :scratch:

Great pics though (and where was the pic of Mom enjoying, I ask you??) Buda is right up there on my bucket list.

Hope you felt better once you got there! :hug99:

Great pictures. :cheer3::cheer3::cheer3: Glad you felt well enough to go.

I wish I could have been there again this year. Just to much on my plate this year.

Lets try to plan another group get together in the next year or so. It was so much fun.

My fave was the balloon guy, I have to say. lol
Wish we could have enjoyed the day with you, so thanks for sending photos.

Great pictures! Glad you got to go and have fun with the pups. Cash and MIller are adorable as always. I can just imagine balloon guys hair taking him up up and away(but thats only in cartoons). I really do want to go to Buda someday.:cheer3:

04-28-2014, 09:03 AM
oh what fun!!! :cheer3::cheer3::cheer3:

04-28-2014, 09:30 AM
Oh, Miller... I am sure, though, that Corvette Cash was attention hog enough for the both of them... you KONW the only reason they have that event is so that people can experience the joy of Cash, right, Mom??

Hope you felt much better, and Jim looks great since his weight loss! He's always been a handsome fella, but even more so now.

I am hoping to become an "after" myself...

And I am with Paula. Buda is totally on my bucket list.

Thanks, everyone. :hug99::hug99:

We're back home now. Scoots is at summer camp and I'm going to get him in a few minutes.

I have no idea what the deal was with the balloon guy. I took that pic with my zoom lens so he was sort of far away. It's one of those great county fair type event mysteries.

Another mystery was the people with the pig. On a leash. Walking around the vendors. Unfortunately, I was shopping with Miller and carrying him so I didn't have the camera and didn't get to get a picture. It was unique :scratch:

I was feeling a bit marginal the whole weekend. I did sleep a lot which helped and which I usually don't do at Buda. Sad to say, having just Cash and Miller makes for a lot more relaxing trip. Poor Scoots :sosad:

Cool in Texas is relative. It was 65 in the morning compared to the 80 that it has been so its considered cool. To Miller anything below 80 is a cold snap and he need to be covered up :rolleyes:

I would love to have another "DLC meetup". It was so much fun when we did. Buda was considerably smaller this year. I talked to one lady from the Buda Lions Club that puts on the wiener dog races and she said they only had enough entrants for 18 races instead of 26 like last year so I"m not sure what is causing that.

We only went out for a couple hours on Sunday. It was pretty hot (probably nearing 90) and I got worried about Miller. He was just laying and at one point I came back and he was shaking. I gave him some rescue remedy and he was okay but it bothered me that he wasn't paying any attention and would barely acknowledge me when I petted him so we left early. I couldn't get him to drink water out at the fair grounds either and I was afraid of him getting dehydrated. After we were in the car for a hour or so and it cooled off he drank a lot of water and seemed much better.

I think Jim has some pics on his camera. I'll get some from him when he downloads his. There might be some of me on there. :) I also have a few more on my camera from Sunday. Since I wasn't exactly feeling great, the number of pics is way down. Sorry :sosad:

Okay, here are a few pics from Sunday.

Riding to the park. Faster, Dad, faster!

The wagon tires stayed inflated the whole weekend so we didn't have to carry all of our stuff plus Miller that 1/2 mile or so from the parking to the races. :cheer3::cheer3::cheer3:

And here's Scooter when he came home from "summer camp". He got his nails trimmed and a new bandanna.

I was very happy with the new "summer camp" Scooter had a suite with a tv and seemed much happier when I picked him up than when he went to the other kennel. He was loving on the girls and when the one brought him up to the front he went right to the other one for pets. I think I found a winner! :cheer3::cheer3: It might help that I know the owner and she was there when I dropped off the paperwork :rotfl::rotfl:

Great pics!!! Glad you're feeling better. I wonder what caused the lower turnout of people this year. There are some fences up in your pics that I don't remember being there. The shirts are adorable. I would seriously LOVE to do another DLC meetup there. SO MUCH FUN!!!:cheer3:

04-28-2014, 12:21 PM
Miller's little tush! :sillylove: Glad you had a good time!!

They put up the fences last year and are charging $3 dollars a person to enter. That didn't seem to make much difference last year. There were still a lot of people, but this year was definitely lighter.

What cute pix. Scooter looks so cute with his new bandana.:cutiepie2 The place Nero goes to do have suites with couches and a TV which plays Animal Planet all day. I have not used the suites yet but they are awesome. Glad Scooter had fun at camp.:cheer3:
