It's Academic, FURiends . . .

Yesterday I went to University to spend the day with Mommy #1. She lives on campus now and I almost never get to see her. She isn't far - under 10 miles - but for little ol' me it might as well be an ocean away. And I miss her a lot. She is always good for a cuddle.

Mommy #2 and I left really early and hit the commute time roads. That was a challenge. I cannot believe how many cars there are on the road at that time in the morning. It is a parking lot!!!

It took something like a million minutes but I was a good girl and sat in my car seat. I didn't even fuss because I knew Mommy #2 needed to concentrate on not hitting the car in front of her.

We had some good tunes on the radio so it was actually a very comfortable trip to campus.

We finally made it and I was so happy to see Mommy #1. She had class so we immediately headed over for Bus 1. That is a class where she is learning all of the basic concepts of business. Later on she will start learning the more specific way these concepts are used. It was a very interesting class and the professor . . . that is what teachers in college are called . . . let me sit at the very front of the class.

The rest of the day was free, sort of. College Student Mommy had to work for a few hours so her DORM mates watched me. It was fun getting to know these new people.
I have arrived MY PEOPLE

SO, About this homework thing. . .
Explain again what the ALT key does

These DORM beds are so HIGH and kinda comfy
Those college kids sure pack a lot into their little rooms. I had a lot of fun sniffing out everything and looking for ORBS of food that may have fallen (I found none).  And some of the college kids even took time out to PLAY with me.

Dogs are not REALLY allowed in the rooms, though, so my time indoors was minimal. Instead we went to the STUDENT UNION where peeps meet up and chat about esoteric things. . . that is a college word I learned during my day as a college student.

The student union is also where the CAFETERIA is located and so we also made sure to grab some lunch.

The University (Santa Clara University - Go Broncos!!) is such a lovely campus that we took the scenic route to classes. This is the fountain at  the main entrance to campus. In the background is Mission Santa Clara, one of the missions founded by Fr. Junipero Serra. The church is at the center of everything on campus - and even if you are not Catholic (as we are not) you grow to appreciate the Jesuit community.

It wouldn't be UNIVERSITY if there weren't some COLLEGE shenanigans. I found myself caught up in a trip to SAFEWAY. . . a grocery store. . . I still can't say how we got away with this. After all, I am pretty sure PUGS fall under the "No Dogs Allowed" rule.

Then it was time to head home. I would have loved to spend the night but SCU has a very strict NO PETS policy and you know me . . . I am all about following the rules. But I have to say I DO feel a little bit smarter having attended college. And I am so so happy to have spent time with my COLLEGE STUDENT MOMMY. It was a long day and I . . .

Think I am Ready to . . .

Aside from the traffic from hell, everything looked fun! There are so many beautiful college campuses and I really love that photo of you by the fountain. :)
I've also noticed that a lot of grocery stores have become less strict on their pet policies.

It's tough being separated and I'm sure your Mom's miss each other's company just as much. Funny, I always though thought of your Mom's being older because they are so accomplished and I look at the picture and think "she's my daughter's age and how beautiful!."

Enjoy every moment, life goes by so fast.

We hope you are not so smart that your brain hurts. What a great day for you and you Mommies. You are so beautiful that it is no wonder you got to go to so many places.
