2009 Reston Pet Fiesta

For the second year in a row, we have attended the Reston Pet Fiesta with Oliver. The fiesta is an outdoor festival of local businesses, animal rescue groups and pet owners. The fiesta was kicked off with the Tails on the Trails dog walk to benefit the organization. The walk was approximately one mile on the WO&D trail. Oliver still doesn’t quite understand the concept of a leisurely walk and pulled us along the trail, with the occasional puppy ADD moments of backtracking to say hello to the pack behind him.

Dozens of animals are wondering throughout the day (with an escort…of course) looking for their forever home. Oliver provided his words of encouragement to one puppy in particular looking for a good home.

As you can see, Fairfax County encourages recruits of all sizes.

The wonderful organization Westie Rescue, Inc. once again was on hand with their representative, Bell. She is quite the queen/lady and maintained her composure as Oliver hopped around in front of her like a court jester.

Tails were waggin’ and bellies were being scratched.

It was a good doggie day!
