Yesterday My Mommy #2 went to the COAST with her BFF Auntie B. They went to an old whaling port called Davenport (just north of the FAMOUS Santa Cruz). The day was nice but cool - the wind made it cold, though, so they made sure to wear their jackets. They did not take me, though, because they were not sure if the beach they were going to allowed dogs, or even pugs. Turns out it did - but I forgive them.
Anyhow, it was a lovely day, they said, to just sit on the bluffs and watch the waves come in. They were really big waves, too.
I was left at home with Mommy #1, which was perfectly okay because she is a lot of fun. We went to the DOG PARK near our house. If you recall - last time we didn't really socialize and Molly got pretty nervous around other dogs (but not PUGS because she is used to us). Well, that was again the scenario this weekend. I, on the otherhand, found my social stride and made good use of my time to meet and greet some of the park denizons.
Later on, after Mommy #2 returned, I nestled between #1 and #2 while we all watched the 2-man bobsled competition from the Olympics.
Speaking of the Olympics, did you watch the bobsled? It was so awesome! I would love to go zooming down that course like that. What an adrenaline rush it would be! And for the first time in SIXTY-TWO years, the US won a medal. That was thanks to the team of Steve Holcomb and Steve Langton. Congrats on the BRONZE, you two.
AND they were going so F-A-S-T!!!! I am pretty sure I can go up to Squaw in Tahoe and sign up for bobsled lessons. In fact, I am gonna GOOGLE it now.
Because MOMMY #2 escaped to the coast yesterday I couldn't post my Happy Thing. So I am going to do a DOUBLE one today. Here goes:
NUMBER 12 Happy Thing is Northern California weather. There are not too many places in the world where on a winter's day you can enjoy a picnic on the beach or a walk through the dog park without the need for heavy coats. Actually a sweatshirt was plenty, according to Mommy!!!! We have the best weather here - mild most of the time and not too rainy. Granted, we could use more rain this year.
NUMBER 13 Happy Thing is the TWO MAN BOBSLED (or two dog bobsled - whatever). What fun it is to go racing down the hill, throwing caution to the wind, test your nerve and your skill.
