Waving Goodbye To Another Year

It's here - at last. The end of 2014. It hasn't been a particularly AWFUL year for me - but it hasn't been a stellar one either. Too many FURiends crossed the Rainbow Bridge and too many Human Friends bid farewell. That said. . . I got to spend a lot of time with a LOT of people I care a lot about; I got to go to another baseball game which was AWESOME; I got to go to the beach; I COMPLETED 1000 posts and 100 Good Thoughts; and so it goes.

Hi from the Patio at Eddie Papas

One of my BEST memories was also one of my most RECENT memories - meeting up with my PUG FURiends and their 'rents for lunch and laughter. Just before Christmas, and at the tail end of some warm weather, we met HALFWAY at a restaurant in Pleasanton called Eddie Papas. This COOL eatery allows pups on the patio which is cool cuz THAT'S where I'd wanna be anyhow.

I partied with

Baloo and Draego






Zoey and Phoebe

Noodle in jail

Why was Noodle in JAIL? Well he had a tough time keeping it cool with the DUDES. As a matter of fact, the DUDES had trouble toning it down all around. BUT boys will be boys, eh? What's that Mommy? The GIRLS had their moments as well? I certainly don't re. . . Oh yeah . . . I guess we DID start a little BARK-FEST at one point. Can you imagine?

Anyhoooooooo. . . Noodle cooled his jets "en carro" while we ate and chatted. Finally we exchanged gifts and then took some final pictures. It was a week before Christmas so everyone had lots to do - we couldn't spend ALL day sitting at a restaurant!

Here is the group shot - excluding Draego and Fezzik and Phoebe and Zoey . . .

look carefully and you can see me peeking over Ellie's shoulder

Happy NEW YEAR Everypuggy!!! I hope 2015 brings you all lots
