Canada Surprise

Life around here had been pretty boooooring. Mom " en derangement." Dogdad working and traveling. Booooooring.I try to keep up with the news. But a dog can just read so much and then it's same old same old..Ah, but suddenly, with an e-mail to Mom, life took on a new dimension. Remember when our humans went to Vancouver with our flat selves????? And they got to meet Sunshade and Jaffa Man while our fat selves stayed home? Remember? Well, thanks to this beautiful ship called the Oasis of the Seas - the largest cruise ship in the world -- which cruises to the Caribbean every Saturday from Port Everglades, just fifteen minutes from our house. WE GOT TO MEET SUNSHADE AND JAFFA MAN'S MOM AND D-GUY!!! Elaine e-mailed Mom when they would be debarking (BOL) from the ship after their cruise and wondered if Mom and Dogdad wanted to have lunch with them. SILLY QUESTION!

Our folks found them easily outside the cruise terminal and before lunch took them for a ride around Fort Lauderdale to see some of the sights.

They stopped at a market by the river and found a lady selling organic dog treats -- which we actually got to sample later in the day.

Lunch was something special: Stone crab claws! The Florida stone crab loses its limbs easily to escape from predators or tight spaces, but their limbs will grow back. So here in Florida, between October 15 and May 15, the claws can be taken for human consumption!!! (When a claw is broken in the right place, the wound will quickly heal itself and very little blood is lost. It only takes about one year for the claw to grow back to its normal size. Each time the crab molts, the new claw grows larger. )After lunch, for once thinking about us stuck at home and rarely getting to meet dog friends, Mom asked Elaine if they had time to stop by our house before they took off on their own. And the answer? YES!!!

And that's how we got to meet two of the coolest dog people on the planet. Elaine sat down with us and we had a long conversation about our pals Sunshade and Jaffa Man. She laughed at Jakey's jokes -- although he's not all that funny.
And then she let us both give her wirey kisses to take back home to Canada.

Not shown, by the way are pictures of how I licked D-Guy's face and made everybody laugh at my enthusiasm. Maybe they'll show up on Sunshade's blog. In any case, we had so much fun and we really liked them!!! Really really liked them!!! Please come back soon. Please!!!

What fun.

It's always fun and special when Internet friends get the chance to meet. Why does it always get to be the humans, though? Isn't there some halfway point between Vancouver and Port Everglades where you and Jaffa Man and Sunshade could get together? No fancy restaurant needed -- I'm thinking you guys would be content with a couple of hours in a dog park somewhere...
