Other than the Pride Parade, the event we look forward to with our pooches is West Fest. West Fest is one of the most kid and pooch friendly festivals. They shut down busy Chicago avenue bringing in bands, food, pony rides, and inflatable jumping areas. They have a pooch-specific area complete with sprinklers, baths, a dog bakery on wheels and informative booths.They had a little sprinkler set up for the pooches to cool off, but the pooches took it as a drinking fountain.
Alive Rescue and Doggy Style Pet Shop had a charity pet wash at the PUP-fest of West Fest. While Mr. B felt refreshed and quite happy to be washed, Ms. M on the other hand...well you can tell by her face.
Though Ms. M was upset, she quickly got over it when she learned that she will get ice cream from Fido to Go, her favorite food truck. Each pooch got their own flavor and Mr. B was a little wary that Ms. M got the better flavor, but when he saw the lengths Ms. M had to go through to get her ice cream, he quickly wizened up ate his ice cream.
The special was Mac & Cheese ice-cream with proceeds going to Don't Bully my Breed rescue. Ms. M just got into her ice cream, and had ice cream all over her face.
Of course Mr. B had his camera on and took some great pictures of the festivities, including the PUP-fest charity dog wash area.
He even got a picture of our friend's son, Logan and his favorite yellow truck, Fido to Go.
Of course, anywhere they go, they have to meet new friends,
