Guess what? There are MORE photos of all the festivities! I hope you enjoy them. Perhaps you’ll recognize a few familiar faces too!
Since there were so many activities at Pet Pfest, there was no way I could participate in them all. The event was mentioned in the Austin-American Statesman too! Here are additional photos that the Pflugerville Public Library released after the event. Enjoy!
The Pflugerville Public Library held its annual pet celebration – the Pet Pfest – this afternoon! Here was today’s schedule:
There was no way I could attend ALL the above activities and see all the animals, let alone pet them! Unfortunately, I did not see the Northwind Farm horses, though they do make semi-regular appearances at the library. I did, however, meet several lovely dogs and their people!
Former President George H.W. Bush passed away on November 30 at the age of 94. What you may not have known is that Mr. Bush had been matched with a service dog, Sully, earlier this year. One can only imagine what is going through Sully’s mind in this poignant photo:

Both Zoe the Seeing Eye Dog and The Washington Post have highlighted the importance of Sully’s service to former President Bush. By doing so, I hope this sheds light on the invaluable assistance that service dogs provide to their handlers and loved ones.
The Pflugerville Public Library is wonderful in many ways, and here’s one of them: they offer extraordinarily fun and innovative programs. One of them was a petting zoo for adults! On Thursday evening, patrons got to meet a pair of mini horses from the North Wind Horse Farm. These were trained therapy horses as well. How cool is that?
This is Boo! His nose was incredibly soft. His owner said his favorite thing to do, besides eating, is to be loved on and petted.
It was difficult to get a good photo of Praline because he kept turning around and showing me his rump! Apparently Praline loves to play chase with his horse and dog buddies at home, so he’s quite the character.
Have you ever met and petted mini horses? Have you heard of horse or equine therapy? Share your experiences in the comments!
