Hopkinton State Fair: Contoocook, NH

We were thrilled that we were able to make it to one of our favorite annual events again this year – The Hopkinton State Fair !

The only bummer was that this year they had a target shooting show close to the competition pool, which freaked-out a lot of the dogs (one even broke out of his kennel – thank goodness he was safely caught).  Our dogs were NOT fans of this noise, and we had to scratch them from several of the competition jumps.

This may be my most favorite video ever…even though I am the one being made out to be a fool! Haha!  Whiskey was a crowd favorite as she ran through my legs (in the opposite direction of the pool!) I chased her on the dock and the crowd was going wild!

So proud of this little girl!

A family we met two years ago at this event made a special trip back just to see us, and give us a special gift in celebration of our new family member…some Tennessee Whiskey to celebrate OUR Tennessee Whiskey!

We had a great time seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and hanging out with our pups…AND we accomplished what we came here for:  Whiskey had to jump at least once at another National level event in order to be able to accept the DockDogs World Championship invite she earned in Canada – mission accomplished…Whiskey’s going to Worlds!
