Jen was going to a conference so I went along and helped drive and watch traffic. We were gone about 31 hours. We stayed in a fancy smancy hotel on the 15th floor. I calculated how many sheets we would have to tie together in case of fire and we didn’t have enough in our room…then I noticed they had a sprinkler system and there was a ledge not too far out the window where we could have sat waiting for a ladder truck.
The next morning I couldn’t figure out which direction was which, I was looking out the window across the city feeling really lost…which way was home? Jen showed me on her I pad which way was north…I would never have guessed. There wasn’t any moss on the trees to give me a hint of a direction…but we did see a Robin…my first of the year.
We had breakfast in the hotel. Out of a box eggs…I think perhaps they have lost the appreciation for a real egg. The delicious poppy seed muffin almost made up for the rubbery eggs. They must have an awesome pastry chef on staff.
This was the food art in the dining room.
I was going to have an adventure taking the bus…but Jen was certain I would get hopelessly lost, so she drove me to an old friends house that was just 15 minutes from the hotel.
Far Guy and Chance survived their time alone.
Chance thought I smelled awfully interesting when I returned home after a long day of playing with other dogs.
My old friend has two Standard Poodles. I have never been particularly fond of Poodles after living next to a few yappy little ones years ago. These two boys were fun and interesting to watch. Since their Mom was working half of a day from home..we had lots of time to get to know each other! We became fast friends! One thing I will say is that their coats were a pleasure to stroke..so soft almost like down.
This is Kirby, he is a real gentleman. Both dogs are respectful of your space and listen to commands. No bark, sit, stay, come and enough! They have been to a few classes.
Stanlee is the younger of the two dogs. He has lots of energy and is attached to that ball! He is even more ball obsessed than Chance.
It was good to get back home. I am not certain how people can enjoy living in the big city, I appreciate the quiet non traffic life in the country.
