No Go At The Hobart Show
This entry was supposed to be titled "Gizmo goes to the Hobart Show" however my mum, doing the right thing, emailed them first to see if dogs were allowed and was told NO they're not, not even in a bag unless they are an entry into the dog section.
Kinda stupid really seeing how the Hobart Show has all different kinds of animals there and showdogs are allowed for a $67 full membership fee & $15 extra fee per dog. Yet me, Gizmo, who isn't good enough to be a showdog and who would be confined in a carry bag or in my mothers arms only, was not allowed.
The email my mum got as a reply didn't even say "Sorry! no dogs allowed."
So there will be no Gizmo watching the lovely showdogs strutting their stuff for the judges.
No Gizmo watching the pretty showhorses prancing around on parade.
No Gizmo watching the human fashion show.
No Gizmo riding on the dodgem cars (I was really looking forward to that one too)
No Gizmo getting to play the game where you put the balls in the clowns mouth & win yourself a stuffie.
No No No Gizmo at the Show today.
Of course my mum could of snuck me in inside her bag but where's the fun in that? Being stuck inside a black bag, on a beautiful, sunny day for hours!
My mum is really starting to get very angry at the amount of places that are "no dogs allowed" I mean as we pups all know, we are better behaved then most human children are and our masters are very responsible pet owners who keep us doggies well behaved and on a leash. Plus they pick up our poop too.
If celebrities like Paris Hilton can buy their pooch into places where dogs aren't normally allowed. And if seeing eye dogs have to be allowed in to everywhere then I think there should be a special permit that responsible pet owners can get. Thus allowing us little dogs into all outdoor areas and some indoor areas as long as we're fully vaccinated, confined, well trained and/or on a leash.
What do you guys think?
