|A covered bridge we came by on the way to it.|
|We are here!|
Saya isn't one that cares to meet new dogs due to having some bad experiences with other dogs, but she isn't so reactive she can't go places she can be in presence of another dog without barking, growling, or lunging.
She did meet couple dogs one was a cattle dog another looked like a cattle dog mix had same look, but a bit different she got along fine with both, but I asked for the owners to end the greeting soon as to not get Saya too stressed since too long greetings seem set her off..
Saya must smell good as dogs always wants to smell her forever. Bella dogs sniff her some then walks off, but Saya they gotta keep sniffing.. wonder if they smell she is on different diet and she smells different from a kibble fed dog or what?
Luckily she behaved well and she doesn't go nuts around other dogs. I seen some at the covered bridge festival they barked some, but never snarled or lung which is good.
On the way home we passed another one which we had gone to last year there was a lady with a jack Russel and another type of dog looks like a poodle mix and it went nuts when a lady with a mix walked by both dogs barked lunged at the dog passing and the dog got a bit riled up too.
I think dog like that shouldn't be at such an event being as there is such a big crowd..
Plus I don't like sideshow type attractions doesn't seem right. I didn't pay to go see it so not sure what it looks like in the trailer, but still seems small to have those animals for a show thing.. Traveling sure, but this? Ah well.
I just don't get why can't people enjoy wild life in the wild heck there is wolf park in battleground Indiana they have fox, coyotes, bison, and wolves and the enclosures are big and they do it to educate and they ensure their animals are happy..

We are trying to keep admission affordable at $1..
Any additional donation is appreciated. Thank You.
Enjoy the Show.
A show is that all these people think of the animals. Sad. :(
|Loved the bison statue cute|
I've been many times and it's amazing how great it is as the wolves are happy and their other animals are happy too.
OK end of off topic stuff back to festival pictures.
|English bull dog|
I did have to keep her on short leash in crowded parts and make sure she was at my side as she is a small dog and easily people wouldn't know she is there since she is a quiet dog.
No incidence of her getting punted which is good.
We had no issues many of the shop owners commented how nice and well behaved she is and coarse she was asked is she a puppy or mini husky?
Only one person said she is a shiba inu right? A kid said she looks like she is a coyotedog. So funny.
Speaking of exercise people would always make tons of comments like "oh poor thing you should carry her!" "She looks tired" "She looks hurt!" so on.
I got a bit frustrated as she isn't tired or hurt at all she was enjoying herself and she even ran after a leaf or two to get it.
Ah well she is my dog and I know her better then some crowd of strangers.
She got plenty of breaks we stopped and ate food and she got to get a drink and wait till we were done then we walked some more.
I was tired at a point so we stayed at a table while mom went looking. She got more water and sat then we were about done I was waiting for mom to get a wooden bird house she had the shop hold.

|Saya enjoying a treat|
Since we went to the festival pretty early we left 7:40 or something like that she didn't get her meal till we got home around 6:31pm..
Must been torture for her right? Not really she got treats throughout the day for being good, but not a lot though it was small kibble or bits of dog biscuit.
She is fed once a day which I vary it sometimes in am, lunch or evening she does get snacks sometimes like a egg, heart, caned fish, chicken foot or bit of honest kitchen food.
She seems do fine on this and she did well never acted tired till the we got to the postal office.
I always checked on her and offered water if I think she needed it. I never forced her to walk either if she wanted to sniff the grass, tree, building, hay bale, or whatever I let her and then we walked she always followed and never lagged behind.
I wasn't surprised since she has met horses at our neighbors place so she is used to them and their noises. She wagged her tail as they came by. She was never close enough to sniff or get hurt by the carriage.
She didn't seem to mind the noise of the chainsaw.
I mainly went to enjoy the walk and so Saya could have fun. The crab cake I ate was yummy.
|A store owner's dog at end of the day tired from all the attention.|
Saya loved the little girl and she went right up to her and licked her hand.
Saya has so many fans it's funny everyone loves her. :)
Time to go back through the bridge to home.
On way home we stopped at a bakery/ice cream shop I got a waffle cone with pumpkin and chocolate yummy at the bottom they put a malted milk ball.
As I was leaving a kid said my dog looks like a fox dog. hehe
She was so tired from her day of fun she ate her food laying down.
Then we went outside and had some fun off leash she fetched some for me and did tricks for mom.
