Mommy #2 went to Japantown yesterday for the annual Nikkei Matsuri, cherry blossom festival. She tries to go every year with Auntie B - it is their special excursion. This year she said I was going as well and I wanted to very very much. My favorite BOUTIQUE is down there in Japantown - Biscuits, Give a Dog a Bone. I love that place and I love the owner, Miss Jennifer, a lot too.
Also at Nikkei Matsuri is my FAVORITE musical group - San Jose Taiko. I love the taiko so much that I DREAM of seeing them performing. They really create so many different sounds and emotions through their drums. Check out there website for some soundbytes and some background in this decidedly Japanese music form.
I waited and waited ALL MORNING LONG while Mommy got ready to go. Then I stepped outside into the yard to do some bidness and when I came back in - she was gone. She had completely forgotten that she was going to take me along this year. A lot of people bring their dogs to Nikkei Matsuri, so I might have made a new FURiend or two. But she was GONE, I tell you. Without me.
She was checking out her favorite booth,TRIMITIVE, when she came across this -
See!!! Right there on the bottom.. ... ... .. in the RED HAT! That was what Mommy saw that jogged her pea brain. She had forgotten me. She felt so bad (but, I note, not bad enough to go into Biscuits and get me a treat) about forgetting me. Even more when she noticed all of the other people who HAD brought their beloved pets. But not me. I was sitting at home. . . waiting.
