Xena’s First Rocktoberfest

First, let me tell you about the ride up to the top of Lookout Mountain yesterday to a place called Rock City. It took 87 minutes or maybe a whole hour to get there and it is even in a different state called Georgia – where I was born. Mommy got me a dog car seat. She said it was to make us both safer in the car and that I would like it ’cause I would be able to see out the windows better. Well, here’s how that went:

Mommy? I still can’t see out.

Look, Mommy, it’s so low I can almost touch the seat.

Na, na, I can get out!

Wait! I’m stuck!

I’m exhausted. I think I lost this round.

Ahh, better.  Now I can see out!

Now, for my day at Rock City’s Rocktoberfest:

Mommy and I were sitting up close to all these things called instruments when suddenly, all at once, some people started blowing in them and hitting them and making a terribly loud racket. It scared me a whole lot, and I shook so hard I almost lost all my puppy teeth! Mommy carried me ways away from all that loud noise until I stopped shaking. A lot of people asked to pet me while Mommy carried me around the park. I got so distracted that I didn’t even notice that we were back in the place called a pa villa yawn where all the music was playing.

Daddy is the musician in the family, so he helped me play the Xena-sized accordion. 

Then Daddy used me as something called a “prop” and people came by to get their picture taken with me (and him).

Mommy had a beer drink called Octoberfest that smelled really good. I wasn’t fast enough to get any.

We went back into the pa villa yawn where Daddy taught a funny dance called poke-a. Poke a what? Don’t poke a sleeping bear, he, he, he. Then him and Mommy danced a poke-a and everyone clapped their hands. (I was glad they were done, too.)

So, I figured out the loud instruments weren’t going to kill me and that I have a silly Daddy. It was also my first time around sooooo many people, and I did really good with that. I missed both my morning naps and my first afternoon nap, so I mostly slept the rest of the time there. I am now a Rocktober Fest pup! Hey Mommy, when are we going back?

I am Xena, the Warrior Princess

    1. Hi Mia. This is Lucy’s Mom. Lucy HATES riding in car. She gets over it on a long trip, but for these 30 minute to an hour trips, she is a nervous wreck. So she had a good day at home with Riley and Andrew.

      1. She did. And Xena still shakes when we start out in the car, but she’s young enough and will be going enough that I think (hope) she will get over it.


    1. Hi Patzy Kitty! I was sooo tired. Mommy was too, and even went to bed early without dinner (after she fed me and Lucy, of course). I want to go back again next weekend.:)

    1. Thanks, Purrince Henry. It took a while, but I finally got used to all the noise and people. I am very glad to hear you are starting to feel better. Nose nudges. ~Xena


    1. Miss Kissie, why don’t you just fly over and show me how to do that next Saturday. It’s up high on a mountain, so you won’t have to fly far down to the ground.


  3. What a wonderful and exciting day you had sweet Xena…oh and did I mention just how adorable you were in you car seat…or should I say THRONE????
