Kurt is a six-month-old Shepherd/Heeler mix. He is a happy boy who still has the puppy wiggles. Kurt likes to jump, and he can jump very high. He needs a yard with a six-foot fence. Kurt is just getting used to a leash and riding in the car. He is a work in progress. Kurt is looking for a happy-ever-after home. Do you have room in your home and heart for him?
Watson here, I want to assure you that Spot the Bot won’t be at Bark in the Park. Honestly, I was frightened when I saw Spot the Bot in action. Spot is the brainchild of Boston Dynamics and is a very agile, mobile robot with a decidedly doggy name.
Spot can find your slippers and bring them to you thanks to an arm. Spot has no spots and sells for $75,400. Its face is a yellow and black triangle and the body sports four arachnid-style legs. There is nothing warm or fuzzy about Spot.
At this time, more than 400 are in use. Designed to explore remote and hazardous environments, they assist mining, utilities, oil, gas, and construction companies. Spot also works for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and various police departments. If you would like to see Spot the Bot in action, go to http://products.mfe-is.com>boston>spot-robot.
Spot won’t be at Bark in the Park but there will be some great things there for you and your BFF. I will be there, of course, and I am hoping to get another medal this year. For an old guy like me that is quite a goal. There is nothing as much fun as seeing all my people and pup friends.
If you haven’t made your plans yet, mark the calendar and be there. On Saturday, May 7, the day begins with the annual 5K walk/run. The registration fee is only $15 per person or $50 for a group of four (no charge for canines!).
Registration is from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. (promptly) at the Churchill County Fairgrounds. The walk/run begins at 9 a.m. The first 100 to cross the finish line will receive a medal.
Entrance is free to Bark in the Park activities, I’ll see you there.
