Great Bridge Lock Park, part 4 & the final one!

Hello everyone! Here is my last post about the Great Bridge Lock Park! It is how I ended up the evening – after such a long and hot day I was so tired that I just collapsed on the sofa! Of course I perked up when it was time for dinner. After my supper, I laid on the sofa and watched Harry Potter – at least until mom and Granmama turned the DVR on and watched one of their shows!  Oh, well, I had a wonderful day with my humans! See you soon! Barkingly yours, LadyBird

Whew! I was so tired I fell asleep! And I never fall asleep at G's!

Oh! Do I smell food? Do I get a little bit of meat?

Great Bridge Lock Park, part 3

Surprise! I have another post for you tonight! Did you like my earlier post about this being Donald Duck Day? I didn’t know about it either until mom read her email this morning! Anyway, back to the Lock Park. After a hot day of walking around, mom promised me a treat – so guess where we went? That’s right – Dairy Queen! there’s nothing like cool ice cream on a hot summer day! Don’t get too jealous of me when you see the pictures!! Tomorrow is the day I go to see Granmama so my last Park post will be on Thursday! See you then!  Barkingly Yours, LadyBird

I couldn't believe it when we turned into Dairy Queen! I wanted to go inside but mom said I wasn't a service dog so I had to wait in the car. Don't worry - I wasn't alone - mom would NEVER leave me in a hot car. I waited in the AC with G while mom was inside and and with mom while G went inside!

Can you believe it! Mom got a chocolate blizzard! that means she wasn't going to let me have any of it! Bad Momma!

I got to see a bridge lift!!

Okay, here’s part two of my visit to to the Great Bridge Lock Park! Did you know that bridges can break in two, split apart and lift up? I didn’t know that! Apparently they do that when boats that are too tall want to go under. Well, here are some more photos!  Enjoy them!! Barkingly yours, LadyBird

This is the fishing boat that was too tall to go under the bridge. It has these two long arms that hold nets - you can't see them - they are hidden by the trees. I still want to be a boat dog one day!

See how tall the boat is with those net arms? And just look at the bridge! My goodness! It was so exciting!

Now you can see both halves of the bridge. What an amazing thing. I didn't know there was such a thing in the world!! Look how small the boat seems now!

After the bridge lift we got into the car and turned the ac on full blast - it was so hot! Mom has promised me a special treat! I wonder what it could be?  You'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out!!

I’m back!!

I must apologize for missing you guys the past few days! It has been a week today since I’ve been able to post anything. I blame it all on my mom (aka secretary). She says “never-mind” and just be glad I’m back today! I wanted to share with you my adventure to a local park, The Great Bridge Lock Park in Cheaspeake. It will be several posts so please come back after today! We went with my Granmama last Saturday and though the day as beautiful, it was hot!! Afterward we all had a special treat! I hope you enjoy my Saturday!  See you soon!  Barkingly yours, LadyBird.

This is a picture of the waterway looking toward the drawbridge. It's a part of the Intracoastal Waterway where my mom says she thinks you can travel the entire East Coast of the U.S. without going out into the ocean! Sounds like fun!

This pictures shows an off shoot of the waterway where there are condos with all sorts of boats parked right out side their back doors! How would you like to have a boat in your back yard ready to sail on a moment's notice? I think it would be cool to be a boat dog!

Oh boy! I got to see a couple of giant birds! Mom says they are Canada Geese, but they just look giant to me. I couldn't get that close to them because mom said if I fell in she wouldn't go in after me! (I'm sure she was just kidding!)  I really like this picture because it shows the blue sky mixed with the dark water ripples.

And finally one of me. It shows you how hot I was! After mom took this picture we sat down for awhile and she gave me some water to cool off. Tomorrow I will show you the bridge lift! it was so cool! Bye until then!!

I went to Pugapalooza!

PictureBella and I went to Pugapalooza this last Saturday! Thankfully we weren’t the only non-pugs there! I’ve got some photos I took – mostly of dogs, that’s all I was really interested in! But we had a nice day – even if it started out terrible! Here’s the rundown of our very busy day: 1. Pet Supplies Plus to have nails done (yikes!); 2. Starbucks for puppy lattes; 3. getting lost in Norfolk trying to find the dog park; 4. stopping by Norfolk SPCA for directions 5. We finally made it! 6. Mom tries a tutu on me (thank goodness it didn’t fit!) but doesn’t buy it;7. We walk all around the ‘world’ and I get accosted by pugs everywhere until I plead with mom to hold me; 8. we finish up by watching a training session on how to teach your dog to “come” when called. I ignored it. 9. We go see mom’s work. 10. We go to Bea Arthur dog park on the river but it is packed with big dogs so we keep on going; 11. we stop to take pictures of the baby geese; 12. we stop by the grocery store to pick up some garlic bread for dinner at Granmama’s. Bella’s mom went inside and Bella climbed on my mom and I had to discipline Bella about staying off my mom’s lap. 13. We make it to Granmama’s where after dinner I collapse on the couch and sort of sleep until we finally go home. 14. I sleep through breakfast Sunday morning and don’t wake up til lunch time! Whew! What a day!

Thank you mom for not buying me a tutu. This big pink bow is bad enough!

Bella behaving herself after I had to discipline her. She must learn to wait somewhere that is not my mom's lap!
