Well, I had no idea that my humans were out having fun all the time at these meetings. You know, they leave the house with me in the kennel, and come back a couple of hours later. But they never tell me what happens at the meetings. Today I found out and boy was it some fun!
First of all, my mom took me to the Kenmure Country Club where I was greeted by a lot of people who wanted to pet me. Then we went into a room full of more people who wanted to pet me. Then somebody said “Okay, time to take the picture.” Everybody went out into the lobby and climbed these big stairs. They put me at the bottom of the stairs probably because I was a dog and the smallest one. Here is the picture of me with the KFC Committee. I also got a picture with some people that came from the two hospitals that KFC is supporting, Park Ridge and Pardee.
Seriously, as Castle says “I am ruggedly handsome”. And that new jacket I’m wearing really brings out the color in my eyes. My friends, Beckie and Patty with help from my mom, made this really cool jacket for me to wear to KFC events.
After the pictures, we all went into the meeting room for (you guessed it) the meeting. There were lots of people but I got to sit up front with my mom. See me there in the middle?
Anyway it was long meeting and I kept trying to see where we were on the agenda. I kinda had to pee. Soon we went into the adjacent room (big word for a dog, huh?) and they showed us the table setting for the big Gala dinner.
It was pretty cool–all black and white. It kinda reminded me of me and Levi–me being white and Levi being black, of course. Then I talked to my friend Burt who is in charge of the golf tournament. He was explaining to me what fun they were planning for all the golfers. I was very interested in this as mom and me are selling “mulligans” and “quilligans” to the golfers.
Unfortunately, Burt didn’t have any doggie treats in his hand so I moved on. I went over to see my buddy, Steve, who is the manager of the club. Now here is a guy that can make a dog really happy. You know, he could take me on a personal tour of the kitchen and let me sniff everything and perhaps find a scrap or two on the ground. We’ll see.
So after a lot of discussions about raffles and door prizes and 10 Treasures, I was really tired. Decisions, decisions, decisions! It sounds like these humans really know how to plan a party. They are going to have so much fun and they will raise a lot of money for a very good cause. As I mentioned before, I have had dog friends who have had cancer.
So pretty soon the meeting broke up and we all started to leave. But dad wanted me to see the award we got from Park Ridge hospital for raising money for them and he wanted me to see the Joanne Jones Golf Trophy that goes to the winner of the golf tournament. These are really nice. Dogs rarely get neat things like this.
As we were leaving, dad wanted to take one more picture of me out in front of the club house. This is probably one of my best poses. Can’t you just picture a life-size bronze statue of me on this very spot. Wow!
Well, that was it. My first KFC meeting. It was really fun and it sounds like everyone is going to have a great time. I look forward to seeing all my Kenmure friends at the events and thanks in advance for donating to KFC. Every donation will earn you a pat on my head and more if you really donate a lot! See you soon.
