My World Tuesday - Dog days of August

The Downtown Frederick Partnership sponsors a program called First Saturday. The theme for August was "Dog Days of Summer". A Vintage Volkswagen club was also showing their beetles and busses. Grandson Chris and I went to see the cars and pups and take a few pictures (Photos of the VWs next week).

Registering for the contest

Part of of the celebration was a dog costume contest. Registration was at Two Paws Up, a downtown pet store. The paw prints led the pups to the spots. Winners were to be announced at the amphitheater by the creek at 8:00 PM. (Chris and I opted to leave early and join Marianne and Michael for dinner at home.)

There were lots of watering bowls for the dogs. This one was in front of Two Paws Up. There are plenty of places downtown for the two-legged animals to get food and drink!

All dressed up

Love those dogs - what a great idea, but I'm not sure if the dogs like dressing up.

look at the pups all decked out in their finery. and what a clever idea for the town to sponsor.

the paw prints remind me of the cat paw prints in rome when they have their yearly cat festivities ^..^

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
