Out & About

Yesterday, Mom, Dad and me went on a 3 hour outing to the Fairmount Arts Crawl - it's sort of a festival where local artists get to show their stuff at area establishments. I don't really have an appreciation for art, I prefer snacks!

Mom and Dad were helping out at the Fairmount Biz Association table and I was a very good boy - I sat on Mom's lap and smiled at everyone. I reckon people were more drawn to me than the stuff on the table...but don't tell Mom that. Here I am on Mom's lap - one of my fave places to be:

Later we walked around and many many people came up to us to comment on how handsome I am. I tolerated all the pats and attention but I started to get a bit pissed off after the umpteenth person referred to me as a mini Airedale. There is no such breed you silly ignoramuses!
Honest to God, do you really think I look anything like this?? (no offense to Stinky - SunShade's bro who I borrowed to prove my point)

On the way home, we stopped by a very big dog who didn't move at all and was not very sniffible. Mom said it was a statue of a mastiff who looked more to her like a huge overgrown pug. Here we are posing in front of it:

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon - out and about in the neighborhood with Mom and Dad, and a few ignoramuses.
