Philomath Frolic and Rodeo

Mum and Dad left us at home at went to the Philomath Frolic and Rodeo last night. It was the "free" night where you could see the rodeo without having to pay $13.00. They said it was fun and they saw Mum's friend, Joan, there. I would love to chase cows if they would only give me the chance! How can I show them how talented I am if they don't put a cow in the backyard for me to herd? Cooper won't let me herd him and Dottie is completely dense when it comes to playing. We don't even have squirrels to herd. How bad is that? I guess a small pony would work and then it could eat the grass in the yard and we wouldn't even need to feed it. Mummy just rolls her eyes at me. Mum took these pictures last night. She thought the little girl was adorable with her cowboy boots with spurs, fringed shirt and hat. There was lots of ropin', ridin' and general cowboy type stuff. They also had a fiddler's show but Mum stayed with Joan at the arena and didn't hear them. It will be really busy tonight because it is the official start of the Frolic and there will be a parade tomorrow which Mum will walk over to watch. She said she will take me to see but I don't get to walk in it.
Alot of the cowboys at the Frolic said with gas as expensive as it is, they are barely breaking even (if at all) coming to the rodeo. Mum says these are "challenging times" and will show our mettle and what we are made of. I am encouraging Mummy to lay in a stock of kibble before the price skyrockets. Good thing everything we need is close at hand.

Woah, cool, we love that kinda stuff! The parents are big into it too... and we keep convincing our Dad about having something to herd too. Mum has this crazy notion of having an all dwarf farm one day... you know, lots of corgis, dwarf cows, pigmi goats, miniature ponies... she thinks it would be hilarious... we think it would be fun!!!
