Mr. Chris Comes to Asheville

Mr. Chris and his family were in Asheville this past weekend for Allison's wedding! Wasn't it nice of them to drive up from Atlanta to celebrate with us? Not that I did much celebrating. I wasn't even invited to the wedding! Poop on them...

Woman had been telling me all weekend that Mr. Chris was going to visit us on Sunday, but I didn't believe her. Actually, I didn't even remember who Mr. Chris is when she was saying these things. I haven't seen him in over a year, and I'm getting old, so if it's not in front of my face daily, I forget about it pretty quickly.

On Sunday morning, I heard a car pull into the driveway. I looked out the window and saw a silver minivan. I don't know anyone who drives a minivan, so I waited patiently to see who emerged from the gargantuan vehicle.

A bunch of people unloaded from the car, including Mr. Chris!! He was holding a video camera, but I still recognized him. Oh, that's the Mr. Chris Woman was talking about! I remember him now!

I pretty much puggled the heck out of him, just like old times!

I introduced him to Hootie. I think they got along pretty well.

His whole family got involved in rubbing on me. Eight hands = the awesome.

I particularly like the Noah boy and Madison girl.

And I really like the Elise Woman.

They all give great butt scratches. It was a good day. I wish Mr. Chris had taken me home with him, but he has three other dogs, and I don't share attention with anyone!

    "I pretty much puggled the heck out of him..." HILARIOUS! I think that will be my slogan..."Have you been puggled lately?"

    What a face! That's total bliss when he's bein scratched by everyone. (huge smile on his face) Very very cute.

    No marriage plans although it does sound like that. You never know though, you just never know.
