Sparkie Comes... Sparkie Goes

I'm back from 4-H congress! Sparkie was WONDEFUL, and did great. With only 537 people there... he only got stepped on a couple times, and didn't mind one bit!
Sparkie got many complements on how well he behaved, and they were sure right!
For any dog this 4-H event could have been very stressful, Sparkie was never stressed out - and just enjoyed the entire thing!

When it came to the farewell dance, he did the 2 step with me, but then decided to bail on me and try "break dancing"... doggy style. Yes he was doing the tight twists/turns, and was totally feeling the music!

The following day before we left, people were coming up to me saying how well he break dances - and he was the best one on the floor!
Good to know that Sparkie has a second career...

I was happy to enjoy Sparkie this week, and this morning we traded back. Rudy was very happy to see me, and I'm told he did great.

Updates later on Rudy, for now enjoy some picture below!

Looks like you and Sparkie both had a pretty good time. He's a marvelous dancer, going by the photo. You are too, of course. Can't wait to learn what Rudy's been up to, too.
