Oakland A's Dog Day

Hey every blogger out there...

Can anyone guess where Oak and I are going dressed in our Oakland A's Jerseys?

Pssst...Come close I'll give you a hint... The Game!

That's right! This past Friday was the 2nd year in a row that we attended Dog Days at the Park!
Us, Mom, and Aunt V all got dressed in our Oakland A's gear and headed for Oak-town for a super pawesome day. Fans and their dogs get to watch the game from seats in the dog-friendly reserved section. There's a pre-game “pup rally” that has pet contests, games and raffle prizes. And each dog that comes receives a special Oakland A’s bandanna and a goody bag! We're happy because not only do we get to watch our favorite baseball team play, but we get to help a great cause. On this day, five dollars of each ticket will go to Dogs4Diabetics, a nonprofit organization that provides medical-alert assistance dogs to people with insulin-dependent type-1 diabetes.

Pawesome right?!
Here I am, waiting patiently, in line to register.

We got to meet some new people and pups!
Oakley found a Boston.

I found a Pug.

And we think this guy found his owner! Bol.
Whoa he's large!

We met big muscular tough pups...

...and smaller punk rock pups!

Even with the excitement of the game, we did not forget our weekly tradition of #CheeseburgerFriday4Joe.
Before we got to go on the field... we enjoyed our cheeseburger.
In n Out burgers are SO GOOD!

Like we mentioned, before the game starts, we're allowed to walk all around the field. Kind of like one big parade to show all the fans we came too!...
He we are lined we gooo...

I stopped for a quick pose.

We met this guy during our walk...he had green fur! COOL!

Our view from outfield..
650 dogs had registered to come out for Dog Day.

Time to head to our seats and get this game started!
We were sitting by some very big and very friendly St. Bernards. Mom's boss used to have St. Bernards, so it was cool meeting them and telling Mom's boss about it.

I stood for the National Anthem and was ready for the game to start!

Who's that over there?

It's Stomper! The A's mascot.

We love watching the game.

Mom was so happy that we were being good boys and that the A's were winning!

Sooo.. Does that mean I can have cotton candy and nachos Mom???
-Mom: You boys already had cheeseburgers, treats, peanuts, and ice cream. Uh no.
-Aunt V: Boys, you can have a couple bites of my nachos instead.


Towards the end of the game it was getting cold. So I sat on Aunt V's lap to keep her warm.
Little did she know she was keeping ME warm. Bol.

Great food. Great game. A's win! Great times. We're beat!
Heading home for much needed rest. Ah we love baseball season.
Until next year. Go A's!

Lots of Licks,
Swisher and Oakley
