    Cooper and I were there but not for very long. It was too windy for us. We left just as it started raining again.

    Dylan won 2nd place in the trick contest. He got a flexi lead with a built-in light, a Nylabone, and a bully stick. It was dry while we were doing the walk and just started to sprinkle towards the end. Everyone just crowded in under the picnic shelter for the contests and paw print making.

    Sorry everybody; my boyfriend's family ended up coming early yesterday for the Hawkeye game so we weren't able to make it!! Wish the weather would have been better as well. Hopefully we can see you all at a future event!

    Weather worked out okay while we were there. Only saw Leigh though. Didn't see anyone else from the group!

      I'll probably go to the arts and crafts show afterwards if you want to go.

    According to their Facebook page, the event is still on for 10 a.m.! Guess I'll head out there. Radar looks like the rain is moving past but channel 13 is still saying there will be scattered rain this morning. They posted a link to KCCI's radar, and it does look like the rain will be gone shortly. They said it's barely raining in Waukee. Channel 13 just said rain could come through again around 11 a.m.

    Going to work instead while it is raining. We certainly need the rain, but too bad it is here today instead of yesterday or tomorrow. I am sure it will affect their attendance. :(

    If it is raining, I probably won't be going. My dogs LOVE the snow, but they are a little more picky about rainy days. I know, they are wierd. :)

      I've never had a dog that likes being in the rain so that doesn't sound weird to me! I see they're only postponing for "torrential" rain and lightning, so they apparently are going to hold it as scheduled if it's just raining and not a downpour. That doesn't sound very pleasant! Channel 13 was predicting rain until noon. If it's raining, I may just go to the arts and crafts show at the fairgrounds instead! :)

    There are a few people coming from the dachshund playgroup as well, so there will be lots of long, low riders at this event!
