Yappy Hour

Yappy Hour Returns

The weather was cloudy
and perfect for dogs

We had a few time outs
 for getting a little too yappy
at Yappy Hour...BOL!

There was a hot dog eating contest
and Augie D was the chosen one
to represent the 3 Goobers.
He qualified for the
small dog category.
There were 10 dogs... 
a Morkie, a Chiweenie, a Poodle and a Pug
were among the contenders.
We figured that the Pug
would be Augie's biggest competition.

The Poodle won.
Oh the shame...
