A DREAM of a DAY
I know you are all waiting anxiously for news about my 1000Pugs photo shoot. It was on Saturday at Buena Vista Park in San Francisco. For those of you who are not familiar with San Francisco,well it is one of the most beautiful and unique cities in the world. This was my first trip there and I have to say NOTHING about my day was disappointing. In fact, just the opposite is true. I thought I was dreaming from the time I jumped out of my car at Buena Vista Park.
Buena Vista Park is like a slice of paradise in the middle of a city. It is steep and wooded. And when you get a peak through the trees, the vista is amazing! This way you see the Golden Gate Bridge and that way you see the City. Amazing. It smelled amazing, too - so earthy and rich. Neither of my mommys brought a camera to the park because it was, afterall, a 1000Pugs photo shoot and it just would not have been polite. So I went on GOOGLE and found some stock images of the park.
We were met by the official PUGSPOTTER, Ms. Kyra who is Lulu Louise's Human. Check out their blog at
http://thefogcitylu.blogspot.com. Ms Kyra was super super nice and gave me all kinds of pets and hugs while we waited for Puglet's human, Amanda to be ready for us. It was pretty cloudy and gloomy when we arrived in San Francisco and at the park. Not too too cold but I was sure glad I have a 3 layer COAT! Poor Ms. Kyra was shivering in her PUGSPOTTING spot.
Then Amanda was ready for us so we walked up the small hill to meet her. I had met her before at Bellatrix's Birthday Bash but I was not sure she remembered me. She did!!!! What followed was the most amazing thing I have ever done. Not only were there lots of TREATS involved but there was lots of SUPER MODELING and all of it OFF LEASH! I really felt at home in the park and Ms. Amanda is so nice and sweet that I did not want to leave her. But I had to because she had many more pugs coming to the park to see her that day.
After Mommys and I left Buena Vista Park we walked DOWNHILL to a dog friendly cafe called the Dobuce Cafe. It was a long way but worth it.
We sat there for a while and ate (yes, even I got some veggies) and then we had to WALK UPHILL to our car at the park. It was so steep!!!!
It was tough but we finally made it BACK to Buena Vista Park where our car was BUT we did not go to the car. We kept walking back into the PARK!! What the dog?!?!? We went back to where we were "SPOTTED" and there was Ms. Amanda! She was going to take care of me while my Mommys visited the city and watched the Chinese New Year Parade!!! OMD! I was elated! And I had so much fun hanging with Puglet and Dutch. Well. . . mostly fun. I was a LITTLE intimidated . . . but I was really enjoying myself. Mommys came and picked me up from their house when it was really dark and I was sound asleep.
I had SWEET dreams of San Francisco, 1000Pugs and Amanda/Puglet/Dutch.
