I'm kind of jealous when I read some blogs that have the family dogs tagging along on dinner out. In Richmond, I'm not that lucky. When we eat out, most places force you to eat on the patio (ok, not a problem) and leave your dogs off of the patio. So Annie and Paul would have to stay on the sidewalk on the other side of the fence from the patio. Which on one hand I understand, but on the other hand, that's a challenge for us. Strollers, bikers, and random
people just walking past can provide all sorts of distractions to good behavior. Where if Annie and Paul could come onto the patio with us, we could go to a corner and keep they kind of corralled and out of harms way (and away from bugging other people).
|More meat please!|
After pouring some water into 2 bowls for the pups, Annie hung out with the Hubbs while eating small pieces of gyro meat. Paul hung out over by me just stretched out on the sidewalk chilling out. They stood quietly when other people walked past and even got petted by several children.
|Spanakopita? Can I have some of the meat instead?|
(And in case you're wondering, we did share some of the meat from the gyro with Paul. Onions were removed for both Annie and Paul. I did try to share the spanakopita with Paul, but vegetables really aren't his thing.)
