SPCA March for the Animals

Over the weekend Jackson and I participated in a disc dog demo for the SPCA. He had a blast. He got to be on TV, got cheered by the crowd and got to meet a giant turtle. All in one day! He was a real super star. He helped the newswoman deliver a live teaser for the morning news show all by himself! I got to be a total stage mom and make hand puppets behind the cameraman while he posed and modeled his good lookin' self. Then he got to play frisbee for the camera. Now that he has been on TV he let the stardom go to his head. After his TV spot he forgot the little people, snubbing treats from friends. Gotta get that ego in check.

During his demo he was having a lot of fun. Enjoy:

We love doing demos. It is fun to just play with my dog without pressure. People are always happy to see the dogs fly. And Jackson is a true Cinderella story. This gives us a chance to talk about his background and show what a rescue can do! It also helps people realize that anyone can get out there and start competing. I am not the most talented and Jackson isn't the fastest, but with some hardwork we can manage to improve lol.

  1. That was so much fun to watch. I was a rescue too, and I still don't know how to play with toys. Maybe someday I'll get the hang of it!
