There were a lot of people that brought their dogs, but Mama said we wouldn't have liked it. I would have been whining at every dog and trying to mark things. Scout would have gotten tired and probably just laid in the aisle. They said a lot of dogs that had accidents. Some of the show dogs even had accidents in the rings.
Mama said they went through rows and rows of vendors. There was a lot of neat things, but nothing that she wanted.
|Granite dog food dishes. Nope, she didn't buy us one.|
|Exercise equipment - so glad she didn't this for us.|
|The greyhound group.|

|A Great Dane hoping for a bite of food.|
|This Cocker Spaniel has cancer. She has a bucket list. She has appeared on the news and threw out the first pitch had a baseball game. She has done a lot of things, but Mama can't remember them all.|
|Dog dancing with his Mom.|
|There was agility.|
There was flyball and also a pulling competition.
They walked around and saw the dogs getting ready for the dog show. Mama said it definitely takes a lot of work. She didn't take photos because she didn't know if the owners wanted that to happen. If the dogs were not getting their hair fixed, they were kind of hidden. They probably just wanted to be left alone so that they could rest.
There were only two greyhounds that competed today in the dog show. The dog show was a lot different than on TV. There were not any announcements. In fact, Mama couldn't hear a thing. It is like it was done in silence. She is not even sure who won between the greyhounds.
They watched some of the other dogs being shown. They noticed that one judge seemed pretty bored and didn't even watch the dogs walk around. It is definitely different than the shows on TV.
|This is where the dog show was held.|
|Astrodome is across from the dog show. There is talk that it will face the wrecking ball.|
|We got treats from the show!|
|Lots of free samples of dog food. Dad said we can eat them as treats.|
|The buffet where they ate.|
There is still one more restaurant that the folks plan on trying this weekend. Our time in Houston is almost over.
