Spencer on a Stick

Today is the start of the Minnesota State Fair or “The Great Get Together.” Did you know that the famous quote by Vice President (at the time) Theodora Roosevelt “Speak softly and carry a big stick” was spoken during the Minnesota State Fair. It sure was, on September 2, 1901 right here in Minnesota. He was only 42 years old at the time and in less than two weeks he would become the youngest U.S. president in history in the wake of President McKinley’s assassination.

I find this quote not only funny but very fitting for the state fair. For some reason humans like to walk around the fair with giant sticks of food. From hot-dish on a stick, to spaghetti, even sauerkraut on a stick. 

Last year I shared what a state fair for dogs would looked like. 
Doesn’t it look tasty!!! 
This year I will be sporting my cow bandana while handing out “Spencer on a Stick!” That’s right, I will have my picture on a stick for everyone to take home. Now I just need to figure out a way to get into the state fair without security noticing.

Of course I need to model my new bandana off in front of the new camera.

Trying to find the right angel.

Are you planning on going to your state fair?
Would love to hear which state you are from!

    That is so cool that your state fair is so dog friendly! Is your fair held outside? Ours is inside in a conference hall (not the same as outside for sure)
    At ours, they don't check anything that you bring in….maybe put them in a giant tote bag? If you went to BlogPaws the tote bag that they gave out would be perfect!

    Hmm, I don't know if pets are allowed at our State Fair. Ma and Daddy-dog have gone before…Daddy-dog loves anything on a stick! I think he is part dog. BOL

    Go in by the cattle barn, you will blend right in with the cows, just watch your step, there may be a lot of cow pies.
