After the demo, we wandered around looking at the booths, and a girl came up to us and asked if I wanted to enter the Frosty Paws eating contest. Twist my paw!!! We said "sure!" and walked over to the contest area. Mom told dad that I probably wouldn't win because I didn't do well in the last Frosty Paws eating contest I entered (okay, so I like to savor my Frosty Paws), but she said I deserved a treat after doing a tricks demo, and that's why we entered.
Well, mom was in for a surprise! I was determined to win this time, so I tried really hard. I didn't even come up for air!!! And I won first place!
Mom says this is a whole new area of potential prizes for me. (Previously I've only won tricks contests, raffles and random drawings.) She is of course very excited at the prospect of more prizes.
And the prize was pretty sweet! A 4-pack of tickets to a Flying Squirrels baseball game and a gift certificate for an emergency exam at VESC. Too bad my mom is the only person on the planet who doesn't like baseball. So I'm giving the tickets to Willow's mommy because Willow's mommy really wants to see the Flying Squirrels.
