Swiss Dog Days of Summer

Today we headed up to Midway and went to Swiss Days. They had a HUGE outdoor market that was so crazy busy, you could barely walk, food and live music. They had this group of about 6 girls dressed up in Swiss outfits singing "I'm Proud to Be An American." I wonder how many people saw the irony...
But we had a good time. When we go next year we'll have to remember to go earlier in the day.
Then we headed over to Soldier Hollow and watched the Sheepdog Championship. We watched sheepdogs herd sheep and ducks. It is AMAZING what they can get those dogs to do with just whistles. Our favorite part of the competition was the Splash Dogs competition. Some of the dogs were jumping 20-22 feet into the pool! Does anyone have a pool? I want to see how far Lucy will jump.

We were up at Swiss Days too! I heard that you need to go at 7am in order to miss the crowds (we missed that memo and were stuck in the middle of things). The sheep dog stuff sounds like fun. Maybe next year we'll do that instead!
