Last Saturday, we all went to a basketball game. Like all of us, including Pierogi! I've heard of doggie events at baseball stadiums and of course, there's dog parades, but a basketball game was new to us. We had no idea what to expect, but it turned out to be such a fun night together...
The arena set up the dog event so well. When we arrived, we went through a dedicated entrance for dogs, picked up a little treat bag (with a bandana tucked inside!) and then headed up to our seats. Several sections were reserved for us dog fans, but the seating was roomy and wide open. We chose seats at the very top, which Pierogi later said was the ideal spot for peering into the aisle and soliciting getting pet :)
Seated in front of us were two Huskies and to our left was Beagle. A Great Dane sat a section over and a lovable English Bulldog mostly hung out in the aisle. There were dogs everywhere and everyone was well behaved. Also in the aisle were big tubs of water and an accident station, which instantly made me feel more welcome (although luckily, we didn't need to stop there).
Pierogi sat well in the stands with us, but we took breaks every quarter to stretch our legs, stand in the dogs-only concession line and meet other dogs (including another Boston Terrier around Pierogi's age!). The time-out entertainment was centered around the theme of the night, dogs, and was hilarious! They had fans compete to name off the most dog breeds in thirty seconds, the mascot walked around with an invisible dog and the announcer wore a dog sling. Oh, and the basketball game was fun too ;) The last few minutes induced nail biting.
Have you ever taken your dog to a sports game? I would love to go to another game with my boys!
