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?
