Busy Weekend!

The People had a pretty busy weekend. Buddy and I also got to do some stuff, which is cool. We usually just have to stay home and be bored, but the People actually involved us in some weekend fun this time. Thanks the People.

Woman taught Body Pump on Friday and then went to Katherine and Andy's house to see their new baby! Katherine delivered a healthy baby girl (9 lbs, 2 oz) on Thursday. Her name is Ena Genevie. Woman did not get any pictures, because although she brought her camera to their house, she left the battery at home. Doh! After a nice visit, they got some sushi and came home.

Saturday morning Woman taught Body Pump again, and then the People left us and went for a ride on the parkway. They took the new car. Nice pic, eh?

Woman drove most of the way. She said it was way cool.

At one point two stags crossed the road in front of them. The People stopped to take some pics of the deer grazing on the hillside.

They had a nice little hike, ate some wild blueberries and headed back home.

Saturday night was the best night, because Buddy and I got to go to the "Park Social" here at the community park. Although Woman tied me to a tree, I still had a good time.

I met some new Puggy friends! Here I am with Pugsley.

And this is Pugsley's sister, June Bug. Look at that cute patch of white on her little chin!

We hung out with lots of kids. Here is Paige with June Bug.

And cutie pie Claire.


Here I am with a little girl named Alabama. I don't think she's old enough to know that it is impolite to point.

I had a good time at the party until the People left Buddy and I tied up to go dance in front of the band. Buddy wasn't too impressed with that, so he slipped out of his collar to go find the People. It worked too, because the People came and got us when they caught sight of Buddy wandering around in the dark. Buddy can be a bad boy too!

Caught in the act.

On Sunday, the People drained and cleaned the hot tub. It didn't look like much fun. After that, they went to the fair with Lyn, Kris, Paige and Claire. Woman took a lot of photos.

They rode the ferris wheel, which always freaks Woman out for some reason.

Baby Claire seemed to enjoy the ride.

Paige and Lyn had a good time too.

Woman and Lyn rode the Freak Out!

They were a little disoriented after the ride. Woman said it was a lot of fun. If you keep your eyes closed, it's not as intense, so she kept closing her eyes, and opening them for just a few seconds. Lyn sprouted a hand out the top of her head when she got off the ride. It had to be surgically removed later. Don't worry - there was a tent at the fair for that sort of procedure.

They got to pet a lot of cool animals, including this camel which gave Paige a kiss.

The goats liked to nibble on Claire's little toes.

Woman took Paige on her first roller coaster ride! Here she is before the ride started moving. She looks a bit ... apprehensive.

And here she is during the ride. Check out that bulging vein in her neck! Woman kept a tight hold on her so she wouldn't get tossed around, and it was a kiddie ride after all. Woman said she's been on better roller coasters. LOL!

Woman said the coolest animal they saw was this big guinea pig looking thing. It's actually called a Capybara, but I think it's just a giant pug-eating guinea pig.

And the freakiest thing she saw at the fair (aside from some scary red-necked people) was this creepy white-faced horse. It's body was black, and it wore a pure white mask on its face. Woman said there was just something creepy about it. It was also kicking the door trying to get out, so it seemed a tad aggressive.

According to Ian, dogs are not allowed at the fair. I don't think this is true though. Camels and freaky-faced horses are allowed but not dogs? I'm going to have to make a few calls to get this straightened out.

So, that's my weekend people. It was pretty good, don't you think?

    Wow! Lots o' pictures! Sounds like the People and you had a great time!

    I hope Lyn didn't lose a lot of hair from the hand-ectomy procedure. It seems wierd that a ride would do that to humans,

    It's OK: I'm a butt-sniffer too.

    Woman gets freaked out by the ferris wheel, but liked the freak out? That just makes no sense to mom. But then, mom is a chicken.
    Looks like you had a good weekend.

    That horse, bless his soul, does look...odd.

    Sounds like a great weekend with the new car!

    The People DID have a very full weekend! Those are some terrific pictures. That horse looks creepy to me too!

    Oh, what a fun weekend. It looks like you had a great time socializing with pugs Norman. The moutains look really pretty and I'm sure your people had a wonderful time driving around in the new car. What fun!

    The photo of Paige on her first roller coaster ride is too funny/cute. The Freak Out ride looks pretty intimidating.
