Because the weather cooled off so wonderfully, we went for a walk in the PARK near our house. It is a wonderful suburban park with lots of native trees and grasses AND a wildlife sanctuary. I love all of the smells, too, especially where this picture was taken - right near the CREEK.

My Cousin E was doing her SEVEN miles of running there (her favorite place to run was closed) so we planned to meet her at the end of her run. I think the whole city had the SAME IDEA, though. It was so crowded at the park. I know it doesn't look it in this picture but then again, it was taken looking OUT OF the park.

The whole walk is about a mile and is just the right amount of exercise for me. Molly was a little too yappy and kept getting in trouble for yelling at other doggies. But she wasn't being aggressive, just mouthy, so we kept walking.

About THREE QUARTERS around the park Mommy said "Noodles, Noodles! Look over there!" I don't usually do that when she yells "look" but this one time I DID. And guess what???? I saw ANOTHER PUG!

I know you may not think this is so shocking but believe me . . . it is in my neighborhood. I can could on one paw the number of times I have seen a pug while on a walk. Well, until THIS time, I had never encountered another PUG on my neighborhood walks - not even at the PARK! So I was pretty excited.

This is SPARKY and he is an EIGHT almost NINE year old pug gentleman. You cannot tell in this photo but he was VERY tall. Almost twice my height. Granted, I am a short petite girl. We said HI to each other and chatted briefly. I was actually more excited to meet his HUMAN FAMILY. They were a mommy and a daddy and a daughter about Cousin E's age!!!! They were so nice and petted me and said I was very pretty. All of the humans laughed a lot because Sparky and me DID NOT cooperate for the photo taking. See how far apart we are? And when they asked us to sit. . .  well, the proof is in the photo.

For the record, Sparky was NOTHING like his name. He was very mellow and low key. He even walked with a slow gait - not at all like my prancing (especially when I am happy). You can tell by his face that he is just a very easy going DUDE.

I hope I meet Sparky again when I walk in the PARK.

About all of those words in the title - they are
all synonyms for SPARKY

I'm so glad to hear you had such an amazing time at your park. It sounds really cool! And encountering another pug is as added bonus. I hope you get to go again really soon and that you can hang with Sparky again.
