This is wooly! He is a young newfoundland who was having a great time just walking around the fair with his owner. :) He was definitely an attention catcher and you could tell he was used to getting loved!
Katelynn and I also were given a quick tutorial on how to play chess and were asked to make an appearance at one of the chess tournaments! I am looking forward to being able to do that!
She also put together a dog basket and a movie kit basket! They looked so professional and I was grateful for her and my mom for doing the things I probably would not have done such a great job on LOL. During the day I was visited by Karol Trombly and Heidi Christiano which was really nice because I was there alone. They are such wonderful women with huge hearts! I really enjoyed my conversation with them and it made the time in the sun go by a little faster! I bought adorable crowns and brought a basket of bears so that I had some things to give to little boys and little girls free of charge! One little girl who wanted a crown took a picture with me. She was such a little supermodel! however it was a little difficult to get her to look at the camera because she was mad at mom for not giving her the purple crown instead! LOL!
It was such a successful day and it really lifted my mood to be able to get out in my crown and talk to the public about the importance of my platform. I have found that with a crown, people are more likely to listen to what you have to say. They are more likely to take you seriously and it does make it a little easier to be heard. so I use my crown and my pin promoting adoption that I wear on my sash as a conversation piece. As a way to start the conversation about the importance of animal rights and the many issues that need attention in the animal rights world.
There were several people who stopped to tell me the stories they had of adoption and finding their best friend. It is never a wasted day when I can make a difference for these animals and the people who share the same passions as I. Tomorrow I will take a lot of pictures at the Pumpkin Fund walk! I am taking my two dogs! It is going to be so much fun! Stay tuned :)
