So much to say about my foster Olivia, but I’ll get back to that next week – sit tight. I hate to be a tease, but I’ll just say that I have to go to court on Thursday because of her…
On to the fun stuff! The Denver Boston Terrier Meetup Group threw us a great Boston Terrier book launch party at Sid’s Doggie Lounge and Nightclub. It was so cool! First, the setting couldn’t have been better. The Doggie Lounge is in Englewood, CO. It’s a dog daycare owned by a behaviorist, and the dog’s that are boarded there aren’t crated. The play area is like a hockey rink, and is indoor/outdoor with fun kiddie pools for the pups.
About 40 people and their Bostons showed for the event. It was non-stop fun! There was a Boxer that looked like an overgrown Boston, and an actual overgrown Boston (he must have been 50 lbs – can you imagine?)! The usual suspects showed up including lots of MidAmerica Boston Terrier rescues, and of course Lowrey’s husband and friends, my husband, and my parents were there to give us support.
After a champagne toast, Lowrey and I read our favorite stories from the book (I Only Have Eyes for You and Gotcha Day Wish). We signed autographs, but the most fun was when people wanted the book signed to their dogs, and so, of course, Bill “signed” it! (Bill, in true form, spent most of the time sitting under the table or on my feet, allowing his fans to adore him from a distance).
Thanks to everyone who made this event great! We’re looking forward to the Golden Retriever book launch party next on the 26th – hope to see you there!
