How would you describe your perfect Saturday afternoon? A walk in the park, gelato in hand, and hundreds upon hundreds of puppies running between everyone’s legs. Welcome to Paws in the Park, the best way to spend a sunny weekend afternoon in a long time.
This past Saturday I had the opportunity to head down to my favorite spot in Orlando, Lake Eola, for a charity event dedicated to all things dog. The Pet Alliance of Orlando put on this wonderful day filled with vendors, dog shows, and of course, puppies. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, other than an obsessive amount of cuteness. Yet when we stepped foot in the park, I knew this was going to be a day like no other.
There were multiple stages set up with various competitions happening such as agility, sit/stay, and best in show. And let me tell you, all of the dogs should have won best in show. We then wandered around the park and found a splash competition, where you guessed it, the dogs jumped into a pool to make the biggest splash around. It got pretty intense.
Oh and my old boss Mickey was there too with the best pup in all of the festival.
It was an amazing day filled with nothing but smiles and puppy cuddles, and I’m so glad I was able to stumble upon it. It definitely helped cure my sadness about missing my boy, but hopefully I’ll see him soon too.
