You're in southern Alberta when ...

There is a band playing on a flatbed in a horse arena ...
(they were great by the way, they played everything from Johnny Cash to Kings of Leon)

that said horse arena is full of 250 people drinkin' and having a good time ...


there is a modified generator with handlebars making pina coladas ...

there is a dirt pile for kids to play in ...

The owner of the Arena we rent threw a big Party - he had bid on a local Band and for a Cancer Fundraiser (which raised $100,000 locally), and thought threw a big party and roast beef dinner in memory and appreciation, and well who doesn't like a party? It was a great time and I'm pretty sure Maureen and I were the only Vegetarians in the place :)



Earlier in the day - before the booze, we ran a fun demo and we had 12 people and 15 dogs show up, it was great fun! The people totally loved it, and there were kids that got to meet the dogs afterwards too. There was even cash prizes at the end! Congrats to Gyp, Pearl and Maggie who took the top 3 spots! Jane even came out of retirement and had a great time! I hope he makes this an annual event. How many parties can you go to and have your dogs there?? I'll have some demo pics soon!

Jane loved the live band, I could barley keep her from dancing on the tables :) I had to keep her from drinkin' too much ... she lives up to her name "Rowdy Jane" without the help from booze.

Never seen a Pina Colada mixer quite like that one (it would probably be a still here), but everything else looked perfectly normal for here.

I'm not going to lie - that party kind of looks like it could be in Texas too. We enjoy random band and dirt playing as well!
