Marin Little Dog Romp

On Saturday Xenie and I went to the Marin Little Dog Romp at Haldan Park in Navato, California. Tommy and I went once before and had a great time so I was excited to let Xenie in on the fun.

Tornado lived up to his name and he led Hannah, Xenie and Maggie on a chaseIf anything it was even more fun than last time! We met some great dogs and chased and played the whole time.

Hannah and I chatted while her companion Sandy gave me a nice butt scratchMolly, a friendly Tibetian TerrierRight away I met Hannah and her companion Sandy. We sat on the bench and chatted and did a little mouth play. At the same time, Xenie was getting to know Molly and the other dogs who were there.

Bowie was charming and fun to be with.Bowie was charming and fun to be with.That's me in a rough-and-tumble with Xenie and BowieWe had fun running and chasing with the other dogs.When Bowie arrived he caught everyone's attention right away. Xenie and I could tell that he was ready to play, so we didn't waste any time getting acquainted. Then we played for such a long time. It was really great!

We plan to come again soon. I hope more of the rascals can come, it is not all that far away. I know they will love to meet really great dogs like Hannah, Molly, Tornado and Bowie.

Hot Air Balloon Invasion

Gabe, Serhsa and I don't like having hot air baloons at Alston Park. They are noisy and full of people who probably have cats at home.

These hot air baloons are a brazen bunch of tresspassers!!For most of the summer they have been on the east side of the valley or stayed down altogether. But for the last couple of weeks they have gathered their courage for a massive attack on the park.

One day I walked up the path to the top of the park and was greeted by the sight of thirteen baloons headed straight at us!!

Back at Alston Park

Gabe, Serhsa and I are now back at Alston Park for our morning walk. The foxtails are mostly gone and are breaking up. We still check for them in our fur, but we don't find many.

One of the reasons we like Alston Park is meeting familiar dogs. The other day we ran into Jazz and Champ, along with their pack. They usually walk ealier than we do so they are leaving as we arrive. That day they had a late start so we got a chance to walk part way round the park with them.
