OMDOG guys this weekend has been the BEST!
Yesterday, Mom was puttering around the house in the morning and when I saw her heading towards the box that holds all my bandannas and fun stuff I came down with a serious case of the ZOOMIES! We selected a red bandanna with blue and white bones on it, and she put a USA Gay-Straight Alliance button on it.
First we went to the Farmer's Market. Lots of people admired me and it was fun to walk around and see what was for sale at all the tents. This was the first market of the season and there wasn't yet a ton of produce, but Mom did buy me some special dog soap from Retriever Soapworks! (With a name like that, how could we resist?)
Then we walked over to Bienville Square to see some friends who were there setting up a tent for the Mobile Pride Festival. Since Mom is an adviser for South's chapter of the Gay-Straight Alliance we wanted to say hi. I got to meet a Yorkipoo named Nefler whose mom is one of my mom's students. He's even tinier than Leo, my teacup Yorkie bud!
Lots of people paid attention to me and gave me lots of pets and scritches. It was awesome! I was even pretty good about not jumping up on people, though it was sometimes hard to resist.
Here's a picture of me in the park. Sorry it's blurry, Mom didn't have her good camera with her:
I met one man who spent about 15 minutes just paying attention to me. He was kind of scruffy and Mom explained to me that he doesn't have a furever home. This man was so nice and loved me so much. He told me about a dog he used to have. He kept reassuring Mom that he loves animals. Mom kept telling him that she could see he does, but maybe he's used to people avoiding him and not believing him. Mom says she probably would have avoided him if I hadn't been with her. Why are humans so confusing? Anyway, I suggested to Mom that whenever we go to the Farmer's Market we should also go over to the park where we met all my new friends and say hi to them, and she thinks that is a pretty good idea.
When we got home I was the tiredest! I took a looong nap.
We listened to the beginning of the RED SOX game but then the power went out. Later Mom left me at home and went to see the Mobile Bay Bears (the AA team for TAN TORKELSON's Dbacks!) play. And when she got to the game she saw this:
It was "Hounds at the Hank" and Mom could have brought me to the game but she is a LOSER and didn't know about it. I would have had the best time and cheered on those BAY BEARS as they beat the Birmingham Barons 4-3.
Oh well, I have to admit that I was fast asleep at home on the big bed while she was out, because it was a pretty tiring FUN day even without a trip to the game.
Tonight is the last game in the weekend RED SOX v. Yankees series! GO RED SOX!
