Wordless Wednesday…Love is

 Carrying the load when their bodies grow old.

This past weekend we took our two oldest collies to a dog fair.  It was a nice event, with lots of vendors, fun activities and contests for the dogs, and all the money went to dog rescue.  But Ryder and Kori just can’t do all the walking that an event like this requires, so we pulled out the wagons and pulled them around the fairgrounds.  

They really enjoyed attending the dog fair, and competing in some of the contests.  They both won the marathon down, it was a tie, as they are very good at lying in the soft grass for long periods of time.  And Ryder won the pie eating contest, with their collie friend Kelsea winning second place, and Kori coming in third.

I only took a couple pictures, and didn’t get any of the contests, I was too busy enjoying the moments with my sweet collies.  For us, it wasn’t about the pictures, it was just about making memories, as you never know how much time you will have together.

They seemed to really enjoy the “pie” so I think I will recreate the contest at home, so all the collies can try it.  I will make sure to get a video if I do our own pie eating contest.

Hopefully everyone will spend a little time this week making memories and spending time with your loved ones, both four footed and two footed alike.  After all, that’s really what love is all about!


  1. What fun you all had at the dog fair. Ryder and Kori sure look like they enjoyed the royal treatment of riding in the wagons.

  2. What a beautiful post. We did the same thing with our Angel Little Bit. Everything we could do to make her comfortable and easy. Bless you.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  6. Chaplin: "Dennis used to tell us how when Tucker got old and couldn't walk much anymore, Mama and Dada used to pull him in a wagon or push him in a stroller so he could still go on walks with everyone."
    Charlee: "Dogs are into walks. We have no idea why."
    Java Bean: "Congratulations on your ribbons! Ayyy, I would love to participate in an eating contest, even if I failed to win ..."

  7. Love your Collie wagon! Too cute. Looks like you had a great time; winning in catagories was a nice bonus. Hugs and tail wags from me and the Ninja. 💙
