Pucks and Paws

I'm letting Arnie on here today, because the latest adventure involved ONLY him. Yeah, you heard that right. I was LEFT AT HOME!!!! Mom said I would hate the adventure, but I'm not buying it. And if I hear that there were treats involved, someone's going to pay.

Arnie here:
Mom's been telling me we about our big adventure for awhile. Since before 1000 Pugs. But she kept saying it was Pucks and Paws. But the only Puck I know is my brother, Puck. And I really didn't want to see multiple versions of him. So I laid low, to see where this thing would take me. 

Bright and early Sunday morning, it took me on a car ride. Gracie was NOT happy, and we could hear her screaming inside the house as we drove away. After a nap, we pulled into a parking space, and there was my Suki, waving over the fence. We were at her house!!! So far, no sign of obnoxious pug mixes, so this "Puck" thing might be something worth waiting for. 

Suki showed me around her house, and I promptly inspected every toy in her toy box. I killed most of them. Can't be too careful, you know.

First order of business - check out all the toys

Then it was into the car, and onto a trail. I could hear water running, and couldn't believe my luck. A little stream, with a bridge across. We ran into the water, and splashed around for awhile. I even got dunked in and had to swim for it. It was pretty hot, so it felt good.

We hiked back to the car, and then it was time to get ready for Pucks and Paws. 
I finally would figure out the mystery.

It was a hockey game!

Stars vs Monsters

There was a whole section for dogs. No wonder Gracie didn't come. Everything she hates - cold, crowds, other dogs and loud noises. Me? I loved every minute of it. Well, except when the home team scored. Then it got CRAZY loud, and I got a little scared. But a bite of mom's hot dog helped. 

We got our own seats and everything

Some of the dogs in the section

Suki really enjoyed the game. Even the fights

We even made it onto the jumbotron. Suki was on there twice!

Then it was back home for some well deserved rest. 

Guarding the toys and trying to sleep

The next morning, we went on another adventure. We drove to the Hyatt Lost Pines, and wandered around the beautiful grounds. 

On the banks of the Colorado River

Outside the butterfly garden

Suki's mom thought this was an appropriate photo spot

Our moms ate lunch next to the pool, and we got to help them eat. We couldn't go in the pool, but we enjoyed watching the kids rafting and going down the slide. 

We want to go in the pool

Then it was time to head home. It took forever to get back, because traffic was backed up because of a bad wreck (nobody hurt, thank goodness). Mom and a bunch of other drivers got tired of waiting, so they made a break for it by four-wheeling it up and over the embankment. But we made it home safe and sound.

Thank you Suki and her mom - we had a blast!!!!

  4. Hope you guys did okay with the storms today!
    Our local hockey team the Norfolk Admirals had a Pucks and Paws event, too. Mom didn't go because she really doesn't care for hockey or cold. Maybe we should leave her at home with Suki and we can all go together!

    Glad to see all your adventures!

  5. Oh my goodness, this adventure was so much fun! Arnie, you are welcome at my house anytime!

    Hugs to you my special friend,
