Hi everyone! Its me, little Lily! I had the very best day ever yesterday! Mama took me to the Red Door Shelter's Walkathon. Trixie didn't get to come because she is a little more mischievious than me, and Mama thought she'd have trouble wrangling us both in a crowded place. I, on the other hand, am such a Mama's girl, Mama knew I would be on my best behavior because I'd always want to be right there with her. We did win a stuffie toy for Trixie and brought it home for her... but then I stole it and shook all the stuffies out. But that is beside the point.
The Red Door Shelter, incidentally, is where your friend and mine, Mr. Pip, was adopted from! And guess what?
I GOT TO MEET MR. PIP!!!!
Pip smelled just like I always imagined he would.
Mama thought Pip was so cute and she couldn't stop petting him and playing with his big, ewok-like ears!
We took a nice walk. We took the short version of the walk because Pip's tiny little legs were getting tired and his human sister was hogging the stroller! Also, I was a little nervous, so I kept walking three steps at a time and then going back to make sure my Mama was there. Then I was trying to walk between my Mama's feet for extra protection. Between me and Pip, walking was kinda getting difficult! So our Mamas decided that the walk was more of a symbollic thing and we didn't have to walk the whole way. We headed back to the park!
Pip and I may look like we're ignoring each other, but we were actually just tired of getting our pictures taken. Our Mamas are worse than the paparazzi!
They had an indoor gym set up with music and food for everyone!
They had given us a nice, big treat bag for participating in the Walkathon. Here is Mr. Pip, checking ours out to make sure nobody snuck a bomb in there!
We didn't stay inside long because Mama gets claustrophobic. When we went back outside to get some fresh air, we ran into Neeko S. Spaulding and his brothers! We all had a big sniffing fest. That black and white dog also got involved.
I pause as Mama gives me a nice skritch under the chin. I'm smiling because of all the fun I'm having!
Here is cute little Neeko!
These are Neeko's brothers... Leo is the one in front, and Ray is the one grinning in back. I think. I sometimes have trouble remembering which is which!
The parents wanted to take some pictures of all us little doggies on our playdate. All the other dogs were sitting so nicely for the camera, but I just wanted to sit on Mama! I like to stick to her like white on rice! Here she is trying to shove me into the picture.
Mama and I stayed until the end. Pip's Mama also stayed until the end because she had to help clean up. You can tell Pip and I are both very tired from our long, wonderful day! We're just sort of spacing out.
Once I got home I was so exhausted, I just lay down on my bed for a nice nappy time!
It was the best day ever! Pip, Neeko, Leo and Ray, I was so happy to meet you! I hope we can play together again someday!
