Belle of the ball

This weekend I gots the most AMAZING news from Momma! She told me that I had something very special to do. She was invited to something called a pool pawty . . . and they SPECIALLY invited me to go along!!

"Really Momma?!"

For some reason, Momma seemed a little nervous as we drove there. She reminded me about a MILLION times to behave and not jump on people and behave and be nice to the doggie who lived there and behave -- okay, okay, I gets it!!

Now, we don't have pictures of this pawt, because Momma was too nervous to bring her phone out. BUT . . . I was a HIT!!! As soon as I got there, I ran straight up to the nearest person to announce "I'm HERE!" and get petted. There were SO many people there, and every one of them wanted to pet me and fuss over me. A bunch of them were standing in this huuuuuuge water bowl, but I wasn't so sure about it. I'd go to the edge to let them pet me, but when they tried to encourage me to get in with them, I backed off. Don't they know you're not supposed to splash in your water bowl?

Anyway, I spent lots of time running from person to person, giving them plenty of attention. Summer, the doggie who lived there, and I sniffed at each other for a bit and chased each other around the yard a few times. But otherwise it was too interesting seeing all the people to waste time with a DOG. It was so exciting!! By the time they brought the food out, I was too tired to even remind them how much I also enjoy cheeseyburgers. I just sprawled out by Momma and let her give me bits of cheese.

All in all, Momma said I was definitely the belle of the ball! All I know is I had LOTS of fun, and Momma doesn't need to remind me so many times to behave next time!


  1. I usually bark when there are lots of people around. I want them to all sit down and eat dinner so I can mooch some yum yums. Glad you had a fun time!
