Okay, so as a dog, I don’t really know much about sports. But I do know one thing — I love balls. Tennis balls. Footballs. Baseballs. Yep, love all of them. Oh, and I also love the Tar Heels, because well, duh, I’m a Tar Heel.
You want to know something else that’s super cool? There is another golden retriever out there (who may be even cooler than me, but shh don’t tell anyone!), who also is a Tar Heel. You may have heard of him, or have seen him on the news. REMINGTON, trained by paws4People®, works as a Rehabilitative Facility Dog with the UNC Baseball Team, and is definitely the team’s fluffiest member. He is also super smart, knowing over 100 commands. I only know like.. five. It’s fine.
REMINGTON and I got to hang out recently, and some cool humans let us wear these super nice Nike baseball jerseys made for two-armed people (Ha! Humans…), so that we could feel like real ball players. As we were just hangin’ in Boshamer Stadium, we got to talking. He let me know that there is this “pawesome” event where you can bring your dog to the UNC Baseball stadium, because why wouldn’t you want to watch a baseball game with your best “furiend”? This event is called Bark at the Bosh, and trust me, you’re definitely going to want to be there. Oh, and guess what? I will be there, too! I am so excited to be back on campus, with lots of new furry friends and their humans. I will be there to take photos and to give lots of puppy kisses (of course!). When is the first Bark at the Bosh? Tomorrow at 6 p.m. Can’t make tomorrow’s game? No need to worry because you’ll have another chance to bring your pup to Bark at the Bosh #2 on April 24 at 6 p.m.
I just can’t wait to see you at Bark at the Bosh tomorrow. Make sure to keep your eyes out for my new friend, REMINGTON, who will be on the field with his favorite baseball players. Get ready for a PAWSitively good time. Hey, I did hear that this is the Year of the Dog, so you can bet you’ll be seeing me a lot more over this next year.
With baseballs and love for the Heels,
Holden the Golden
