Preparing for the Peach Fest
Sitting outside on the concrete steps, I watched along with hundreds of others as a small girl prompted her dog to show off his trick.
Despite her encouragement, the four-legged friend was not in the mood to be an entertainer. After multiple attempts, the two gave up.
Apparently it is pretty common for pets, when they get in front of crowds, to be too distracted to perform activities — such as rolling over or catching a ball — that they normally embrace.
The pet show is one of many events associated with the annual Squire Creek Louisiana Peach Festival, set to roll out this weekend.
