Fun and Exciting Weekend

WOOO Friends! This weekend has been a great one. First and most importantly, yesterday was my mom and dad's 5th wedding anniversary! They started the day off by going to Starbucks. I got to ride to and was able to get some good smelling in. Then, it was off to the Cherry Blossom Festival. If you recall, I went last year too. Unfortunately mom's camera batteries died and we did not get any photos of Oakley! She is a 7 year old Siberian, who I met and played with! I am bummed about that. But today, she did remember to take the camera with CHARGED batteries. I met some cool Disc Dogs! They were cool!

Here is a photo of the Cherry Blossoms that mom took... and a photo of me with them. Oh course I would not sit like she asked me to. Oh well! They are still blooming... in our yard and across the street at the farm, so we will continue to try to capture the perfect photo :)

Ok Mom... I am totally ready to watch the show!

The Greater Atlanta Dog and Disc Club was there today with some of their amazing dogs doing Frisbee catch and performances. Check out a few of them catching their Frisbees. Some of the dogs that performed today are rescues! How cool is that?

Mom was able to get some video of one of the dogs doing their performance. Check it out.

Wasn't that cool? They were giving out free training guides as well. Dad picked one up. I wonder what they plan to do with that? If you are interested, they have it on their website, here.

After the show, we were all invited to go over to the dog's tents for a meet and greet! Here I am getting some Frisbee tips from two of the tops dogs of the day. And Zim... I promise you that I am not kissing either of these doggies. You are my one and only pup!

Finally, I spotted something...

Can you see what I found? They are baby Bengal Tigers. Their names are Ossira, Ravi and Sahib and they are making their debut at the Festival. They are about 7 months old and right over 100 lbs! WOW! Here are a few more photos of them "playing" around with some of the handlers.

It was a very fun weekend. The cool thing is that this Festival goes on for 10 days. And there are more activities next Saturday for Pups to go to. One of the rescues here is doing a free First Aid class AND are giving tips on how to get your dogs into agility. VERY KHOOL! I am looking forward to that.

Well, I enjoyed sharing some photos with you all. I hope you all enjoyed seeing them as well.

Hugs! Sitka

The Daily Echo said...

What great pictures Mom took! Those kitties are much larger than the ones around here. I don't think I'd want to play with one of them! I can see you were being very true to your one and only Zim. We're glad Mom and Dad had a wonderful anniwoosary weekend!

The Army of Four said...

I know I'm supposed to be interested in the all the great dog photos--and normally I would be, really--but I can't get over the idea of cherry blossoms. How absolutely lovely. Did we get blooming trees this weekend? No. Did we get 2 more inches of snow? Yes. Is winter ever going to end in New England? Doubtful.

PS: Happy anniversary to the humans!

sharkgila said...

What a fun day out! (But why that red thingy around your muzzle. Spoilsport)

Oooo, such big cats. They look handsome, but not as handsome as woo!


Girl Girl Hamster said...

It's so cool that you saw tigers... Nice weekend that you meet other doggies. :)

Happy anniversary to your mom and dad!

What a great weekend you had Sitka. It must have been a real treat watching those dogs do their tricks. We'd be useless at that lol.
The cherry blossoms sure are pretty.

those dogs are cool. Those big kitties kind of scare me.

D'Azul Siberian said...

Great pictures, those are some big kitties too. Wow. Frisbees are great fun, to chew up.

Sophie Brador said...

Kitties at a dog show? I'm confused. I'm also insanely jealous of your visible grass. Ours is still covered in snow.

Amber-Mae said...

Wow, kewl dogs! Wish I can catch freezbeez like them too...What a great time you had Sitka!

Love licks,

Thor said...

Those are some really big cats! Are they friends of Tia's? Maybe relatives? Might not be a good idea to ever fight with Tia again!


Holly said...

What a cool show!! Although those Border Collies are just showing off. It's a good thing no respectable Sibe would EVER behave that well!


Tucker said...

Happy 5 to your humans!

I'm with Holly! Jumping for a disc and then returning it? (And not chewing it?)

But it's nice that humans have other dogs that will do that for them.

Simba said...

Not sure I'd want to play bitey face with the tigers. What a great day out.

Comet and BLU said...

Congratulations to your mom and dad.

It looks like you had a fun day in the park. Those kitties look like they have sharp claws and teeth though. You better stick to playing with Tia.

The Husky in the Window said...

That is so cool! You got to celebrate with your mom and dad! Happy Anniversay to them!

You got to see the tigers too! What did Tia think when you told her about those big cats?

Husky Hugs, MayaMarie

Turbo the Sibe said...

Is the stupid Georgia pine pollen popping yet?

Kapp pack said...

Sounds like you had a pawsome weekend!

WOo woo, Kelsey Ann

cyber-sibes said...

Wow, BIG cats! Big enough to play husky smack down with! But those daggers on their paws might mean it's not a good idea to play rough, huh? You've had lots of fun lately, thanks for sharing your cool photos!

wooos & a-rooos,
Star & Jack "the tiger-tamer" a-Roo
