The Awesome Dog Walker

I think I mentioned this already when we heard about it, but last night the Dog Walker got his award from the Veterans of the Foreign Wars. Every time I have him put on his Boy Scout uniform, I tell him it's the last time he can wear it. I guess I better quit saying that because people keep wanting to see him in it.

So he got dressed an hour early (I'm pretty sure just so he could admire himself in the mirror...) and at 6:35 we headed out the door. It was only a short drive to the West Jordan City Hall. That is where the VFW post in our area meets. We pulled into a parking spot and climbed out of the car.

When we got to the door, we were surprised to find that it was locked! We just looked at each other. I was certain I had the right day written on the calendar...

About that time, a bunch of guys in VFW hats started climbing from their cars. I guess we were in the right place after all. Trouble was, they didn't have a key either. Thankfully, someone opened the door from the inside.

We followed our VFW friends to a small conference room just to the right of the city council meeting that was going on at the same time. They presented the Dog Walker with a beautiful plaque that read "Eagle Scout of the Year, State of Utah."

He made a little impromptu speech. (I'm always amazed at how well he can speak now in front of a group without a script.) I snapped a few pics and we were on our way.

When we got home, he grabbed a hammer and nail and we added this awesome plaque to our wall of fame. And I'm pretty that's the last time he will have to put on his boy scout uniform... but I'm not telling him that.
