Dog Day at the ballpark! Let's play ball, woof!

I had the opportunity to attend the 7th annual Dog Day at the Park at the Oakland Coliseum. I just have three barking words to sum up this event...


What could be better than walking on the field, sitting in my specially reserved canine section or watching the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Yankees?  Maybe a huge dog bone but honestly this was the coolest place I have visited in awhile.  It is not every day that I get to watch a live professional baseball game.  Woof woof! All sorts of breeds came out to play catch and watch some baseball.

I met dogs smaller than me...
and bigger than me... WOW he is big!
My walk on the field was filled with lots of wags and sniffs.  There were over 750 dogs in attendance. I was very eager to get on the field and strut my Yorkie-ness.  I would have loved to run across the entire field but was told we must stay on edge of the field. I guess they did not want any players stepping in something stinky, even though we canines love stinky things.

Many A's and Yankee fans cheered us canines on while we strolled along the warming track.  I was one of the first 50 dogs on the field too.  This gave me plenty of time to walk around the entire track and get to my seat before the game started. Check out our short video showcasing the view mom and I had during our walk on the field. Now I know why players call it "The Show."

We had great seats. We could see the entire game, hear the announcer loud and clear, and we saw all of the players butts the entire time.  What do you expect? I love to sniff butts so why not watch them too.  From home plate, the canine sections were located behind center field.

I thought my seat number reflected my place in life. BOL!
They had restrooms designated for our humans too.  We could accompany them in and make sure they do "their business." I will never fully understand humans and their poo and pee rituals.  If you gotta go, go on any tree, bush or piece of grass. That's my motto.

I look forward to taking Solo to Dog Day at the Park next year. I bought my tickets months in advance and could not get an extra ticket for Solo this time.  But he understood and spent some time with grandma and grandpa.

Mom and I watching the game.
My mom and I had a wooftastic time this year and we definitely do not want to miss the next event.  Now to do some shopping to find Solo and I matching A's gear for next year... keep wandering.
