Saturday, June 27 – Day 8
Today we went to a minor league baseball game. It was take your pet to the game night, so there were a LOT of dogs there. We got pounds of kibble to use as treats – we’re only allowed to feed foods that are approved by our service dog organization, as these dogs are the canine equivalent of very high level athletes and need to eat the best, but we can use anything for treats. Hopefully he’ll like them! He now won’t touch the first treats I was using – as soon as I gave him a few of a different kind, he wouldn’t have anything to do with them. They tell me that’s the poodle in him.
The game went fairly well, though I overheated and had to be stuck in the shade for the second half of the game. Most of us were really glad when the game was over – to be honest, both teams were AWFUL. While AAA teams are sometimes pretty good, this was an ‘A advance’ game, and frankly the high school games I’ve watched have been better. Strangely, we got much better soft-serve ice cream there than I’ve ever gotten at major league games, which seem to serve the cheap stuff. Even after sleeping in late in the morning and being pretty lazy all day, I was BEAT by the time the game was over!
