Many of the booths were not selling or promoting anything, they were just beautifully decorated with colorful art, fresh flowers, sand and rock designs.
It was challenging to get pictures of Norman looking up at things. He wanted to spend most of the time with his nose on the ground looking for stuff to eat and when I kneel down to take his picture he comes over to kiss me.
Though he did enjoy the ponies. We had to joke that he was just hoping he could snack on their poop. I know it's gross but he always tries to eat the horse poop on our hikes.
And this moving sound-making spider did capture his attention. He was both worried and intrigued by the odd creature. Outside the picture, there were dancing screaming witch dolls too which he did not even notice.
In fact, he could not stop wondering about the spider when we tried to get him to pose for a picture with my sister-in-law in the booth next door.
And there were cool cars. Who doesn't love cool cars?
Norman tried to make friends with a couple Zombie babies and a giant rat.
|Hello giant rat friend.|
|This zombie baby surprised him when it gasped and snarled.|
|But this zombie baby was receptive to kisses.|
And Norman got plenty of attention from admirers. There were lots of kids at the event so he got to lick a lot of tiny fingers and one lady was so enamored with him, she scratched his butt while he sat on her lap for about 5 minutes. It made me smile that she was all dressed up but didn't care that he was getting her outfit covered in hair and dirt while she knelt on the ground with him. She sarcastically (I think) asked how much I wanted for him and though I don't normally get preachy about rescuing dogs, I did have to tell her there are millions more like him who are waiting for homes. I didn't get any pictures, but here he is smooching my sister-in-law.
And finally we sat down for margaritas while we watched the crowds go by.
Overall it was super fun but then I always enjoy a day out with my guy Norman.
