Patches went to brunch and Penny has a new Aire-cut!

Hi everybuddy! It's me, Patches! Yesterday, I got to go to a really cool restaurant for brunch with Mom, Aunt Wendy and a couple of other ladies and their doggies. This restaurant is very dog friendly. As soon as we got there, they brought us big bowls of water and some treats. Then, while all the ladies were eating, they brought us 3 plates of cheese...all for us doggies.
We had a really great time and none of us got into any trouble! Well, I got into a little trouble on the way there and on the way home, but not while we were there. I seem to not like getting into or out of a vehicle. I'm fine once I'm in or once I'm out, but I don't like the part of GETTING in or out! They finally put a prong collar on me and then I didn't pull so hard on my leash. Mom calls it "power steering for dogs".

I had met Ezzy Rider once before when I first entered the witness protection program, but it was only for a few seconds. I recognized him, right away and we went into his back yard and peed all over the place! He has all kinds of walking trails and a ginormous cage with kitties in it. I like kitties! I used to live with a bunch of them. We don't have any kitties at Airedale Heaven so I was very curious to see all of Ezzy's kitties. They all seem very nice and none of them hissed at me!

So...while we ate brunch, Ezzy, Larkin, Bijou and I sat around the table and kept hoping for someone to drop food from the sky for us. It was actually happening quite frequently so I sure hope we get to do this again sometime. Larkin is a Portugese Water dog and he's very cool. Bijou is a Bichon Frise and she's very cute. I'm sure you already know my cousin Ezzy from his own bloggy. His brother Jagger didn't get to go with us because he is away at boot camp.

I was kind of naughty at Aunt Wendy's house because I peed in the house several times. I just couldn't help myself! I was sooooo nervous. This was the first time I had gone on an adventure (other than my escapes) since moving in with Poppy & Penny and it made me very nervous to be in a strange house! I promise to do better next time!
Penny got a new Aire-cut, this morning and she looks very pretty, but Mom is not too happy with the way they groomed her. She looks okay, but Mom specifically asked them not to leave a "skirt" on her butt, but they did it anyway! Mom didn't notice it until they got home, because Penny was bouncing around wanting to go home and Mom only noticed her face and top side of her body. A different girl did her grooming from the one that did Poppy. Next week, I get to have my turn and I'm not looking forward to that! I am still very clean and pretty from my bath. By the way, somedogs were concerned about me getting a cold bath with the hose. Well, here in Georgia, the hose water is about room temperature and Mom has to actually let it run for awhile before she puts the water on me because it's too hot. It is not possible to get a cold drink of tap water in the summertime in Georgia. We think the water pipes must not be buried very far under the ground.
Well, everybuddy, I'm off to have a nap. I am still resting up from my brunch date yesterday!
Patches (and Penny & Poppy too)

Dexter here. I don't like getting in the car either. Plus I will only ride in my crate which is too small for me and my head hits the top (but I get scared when I'm not in it).

I wear a gentle leader harness on walkies to provide momma with labradude power steering. Maybe you could get one too.

People who don't live in the south have no idea how hot water in a hose can be and yup, it never does get cold in the summer.

And I pee too, sometimes, I try not to, but I just can't seem to help it.


Niamh said...

What a great place to go out to eat. I wish every restaurant was do-friendly. Bet the cheese was delish!

Your friend,

Noah the Airedale said...

Sounds like you had a great day out Patches. That was very nice of them to bring you cheese. We love cheese. Don't worry about peeing at Aunty Wendy's place. She understands how nervous we doggys can be in a new place and she's a very kind person.

Hugs and tail wags

I wish they had dog friendly restaurants here! What a great experience, getting to go out to lunch with your humans.

I start to hyperventilate when I get near the car. G-Mom thinks I am going to give myself a heart attack.
ps. I love cheese. Where is this restaurant?

Huskee and Hershey said...

You got plates of cheese? Oh wow... that's a great restaurant. We don't have that many dog-friendly restaurants here in Singapore, and that's such a shame.
