Sunday was World Animal Day and SPCA held a carnivalesque event at East Coast Beach. HY got her annual SPCA doggy tshirt and we caught a highly-exciting obstacle course. The model dog was of course the border collie, who looked like he could not stand imperfection and was definitely OCD-ing. He demonstrated a perfect course run which left me afterwards thinking he was on speed.
Unfortunately Contestant No. 1, a Jack Russell, was somewhat hesitant and took the time of what we later saw to be three average runs. He just would not go into the plastic yellow thingy no matter which entrance his owner tried to entice him into. Very funny lah! He stood firmly outside the tent flexing his short muscular legs, staunch and adamant… I believe I was the only laughing person. (Also that I must have been caught by someone’s camera… laughing like I was on speed.)
There were other contestants of course,
