A Mid-Week Break

|I thought some black lab owners would appreciate the irony of this one.|
|"Lindsey Lohan" in her prison garb.|
|Green Dog Days getting loaded into their float complete with drum kit.|
|This little guy was my neighbor on the viewing stairs. He seemed a little too high-strung to enter the contest.|
|Original hand-made costumes received more accolades, but this little one WORKED the judges and crowd.|
|Brooklyn's Finest, complete with handcuffs.|
|King Kong and Fay Wray|
|This was one of the crowd favorites and received an honorable mention.|
|Lady Gaga in her meat dress. There was another Gaga, and a Snookie too.|
|Shark Attack! And it was cold!|
|Children admiring the gold fish.|
|I can't believe she carried off all that tulle!|
|This group, Peewee's Playhouse, was another winner.|
|One of my favorites - a clever mouse trap - received another honorable mention.|
|Bull-riding. This worked beautifully - as the dog trotted around the stage, that rider and his hat bobbed just like a real rider on a bull.|
|Another winner - the little guy was digging the ride.|
|The grand prize winner - A Tree Grow-els in Brooklyn. Beautiful, and the dog was a pro. He was mobbed by photographers, and he gracefully posed for everyone. The tree is on a table with wheels, so he just pushed it along with his shoulders. I overheard two people saying this man's wife complains that he spends all his time on the dog's costume, and none on the kids'! I think most kids these days prefer store-bought anyway.|
|Part of the viewing crowd.|
|After the show, one dog seemed very puzzled by another dog's third head.|
|After all was said and done, this dog seemed to be having the best time of all.|
|I didn't see him in the contest.|
Lola is loving her patch of grass.
She has made it clear she does not want it cut.
If this was outdoors, we'd be "THAT" neighbor -
the bane that causes all the crab grass and dandelions in the area.
|A kit having to do with eggs - but I have no idea |
about the uses of the individual pieces.
Monet's Water Lilies looks nothing like this
(even my good camera can't do it justice),
but I just wanted to show the scale.
|This one deserves a close-up. Love it!|
