I took Ruby today to her first charity dog walk! It was $25 for registration, and I got a really nice goody bag and a couple hours in a park with a bunch of other dogs.

Ruby wasn't the most friendly pooch towards other dogs, but she wasn't a vicious bitch either. She was the only Boston Terrier at the event.
I think that if I take her to a few more events she'll get used to being around dogs four times her size. The way she stared down a Great Dane was absolutely priceless.
Also, watching her test her sea legs in the bay only to be frightened off by a tiny wave was hilarious. She got the nerve up to sniff around the water after watching the other dogs jump right in and swim like crazy. She scooted up, tested with her paws, and started to get into deeper water. I was so excited for her - then a boat went by, created a wake, and the waves made her jump straight up in the air and run for the woods as fast as she could possibly drag me.
I'm uber pissed I forgot to take my camera.

Next weekend there is another Charity Dog Walk that I will be taking her to, in case anyone else with a dog in the Long Island area is interested!
