Paws by the Prom at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home

No automatic alt text available.

On Sunday the 2nd September Roger, Laferra and I attended the Paws by the Prom held at the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. This is the place that Roger was waiting for his forever home for sometime. It looked like a lovely day so I knew it will be fun. The aim of this event was for EDCH to have Open Day to promote their pets for re-homing but also bring dog lovers together. There were different zones: rehoming, learning, fun, shopping, refuelling and kennels tours.

So the stalls were all so interested and there were so many:

Roger at EDCH

I was a bit anxious about us attending this event as the EDCH was Roger’s home before when someone didnt want him or I should say he was waiting for his forever home. I was worried that he will be worried that he will be left again. What a surprise that boy was.

We passed reception and Roger couldn’t stop wagging his tail, I was like: oh wow he is excited. Then I knew he recognised one of the girls who looked after him. One happy boy jumping around and smiling.

He knew where to go and was pullying us inside, sniffing everything around and being excited. Oh, another person who he recognised. Overall one happy dog, wagging tails around and looking into my eyes. Like he wanted to say mum this is fun or maybe just I love you mum.

Open day

So we went directly to the field, where everything was happening. There were a lot of stalls and things for everyone. I have decided to sign those two for “handsome boy” and “prettiest girl” competitions. I thought Roger might rock this one as a former EDCH resident (oops I was wrong!). Yes, Laferra won 3rd place for “prettiest girl” and as always she stole the glory.

Since we were planning to attend there and our first canicross club asked me to help them with canicross demo, I thought this will be brilliant: ex-resident Roger promoting what we both love a lot. I thought we did well but watching the video back, I think we were a bit like a clowns! Here you can watch it and judge yourself:

So Roger was a bit of superstar today too🙊🤔😂Roger was actually a muppet during presentation and I kind of talked nonsense (it was stressful) 😂😂But great day promoting the sport for rescues at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home Paws by the Prom (Open Day):)

Anyways, it makes me laugh how happy Roger was during our demo.

Overall an amazing day and great to see so many people with dogs. Great to see that not only Roger recognised people but he was recognised by them too. I am so lucky to have this boy and I am glad he was happy to show around how happy he is with me, with us <3
