Getting up the stairs was the hardest part. She seemed frustrated and embarrassed that she needed help. Scott crawled up the stairs next to her so she wouldn't feel bad:
We're happy to say that she seems to have pretty fully recovered and is spending her days in the backyard with the other dogs again. So today Scott and I went on the road looking for adventure. We found it in Puyallup.
The Puyallup Fair is an annual event - and a pretty big one, too.
A prizewinning vegetable display:
A 1,034 pound pumpkin:
Lots of military down presence here:
A man carving giant pumpkins. They were really very cool. The one he's working on is all cats:
There was a booth for a place named "BJ's" that sold hair extensions. They also sold this t-shirt:
Fair fashion #2. At least the bad shoes matched the bad leggings under the bad dress:
We walked past this ride where people paid to be brought up about a hundred feet in the air, then dropped part way, brought up a little again dropped again ... it's called "The Tower of Stupidity" or something like that:
What's a fair without a trip to the Livestock Barns?
There were lots of these around:
Cow taking a shower:

What's a fair - especially in the Pacific Northwest - without a Native American band?
Rides and things:
Time to eat ... mmmm, barbecue ...
Scooter wants ribs:
After eating pork ribs and BBQ pork sandwich, we saw these seven-day-old piglets:
Then the drive home, with this view of Mount Rainier behind us:
Now we're home - exhausted and a little sunburned. I think a hot shower and fresh sheets on the bed sound good. I hope everything had a good weekend!
