Remember the big furry chaps that some of the cowboys used to wear?
On Saturday Mommy took Hootie to the county fair and it happened that there was a small animal parade at that time. Well, she decided to see how Hootie would behave and it turns out he does tricks on command in front of an audience! He won $4.00 in half dollars and even got a participant ribbon. Since this was spur of the moment he didn’t have any of his cute outfits on. Too bad, because there was a BIG ribbon for the best dressed pet and hooman combination. Maybe next year our mommy will be better prepared. (Maybe not! C.)
