Two Travelin' (Flat) Terriers - Part 3: Starring Miss Sunshade the SUPERDALE and Jaffa

We were going to continue our trip narrative with scenes from Stanley Park and Gastown -- but something much more exciting happened! We Flat Boyz were honored to spend the afternoon with two of the most prestigious residents of this beautiful city: none other than the much loved Miss Sunshade the Superdale and her nephew, Jaffa. ( )

And, of course, their lovely mom, Elaine.

Get this: Miss Sunshade and Jaffa have their own taxi service!!! (You may have seen their new personal vehicle in a recent blog when they took it to the breeder for grooming.)

We drove to one of Vancouver's many interesting places -- Granville Island -- a formerly industrial area that is now home to lots of shops, boating facilities, and a huge public market with fresh local vegetables, meats, cheeses -- you name it -- all displayed in artistic fashion.

Since this was first time we had ever met representatives of the breed known as the King (and of course in this instance, the Queen) of the Terriers, we were a little shy. Miss SUPERDALE herself was not convinced that she wanted to have anything to do with our flat selves -- but Jaffa was intrigued.
WTF was his first reaction; but then, being a quick study, he realized no, not WTF. WFT!!!After a while, Sunshade did finally consent to letting us approach...She allowed us time for a quick glance over her shoulder...
And a quick sniff... But then it was treat time.Our Mom seems to have hidden her face while talking to our new pals. Is it so that Jake and Just Harry don't get concerned that she might be trading up the terrier line???
But you can see why she might have fallen in love with these two dear Vancouverites and their mom!! Miss Sunshade the SUPERDALE: Jaffaman:
And their kind, fun, artistic, delightful Mom, Elaine:At lunch, Mom and Elaine spent hours chatting about everything under the sun -- and confirmed what we all know: there are no strangers among our Dogs with Blogs humans!!!

Oh wow, your flatselves went travelling too. Isn't it great being able to get away in flat form. Looks like you had a great time. My pinkies have been there too and they really liked Vancouver. They saw an Airedale when they visited the city in 2006. It might have been Sunshade lol

Who ever would have thought your two flat selfs could have had so much fun!
We are incredulous - whatever that means.
Great trip and how cool to meet a fellow blogger.

I completely agree! When you meet a fellow Dog Blogger there is an instant connection! This happened immediately when Kit of Dog Daze and I met at the Iditarod this past winter.
