How about the ballpark?
Jon Farleigh and Dewi do (dooweedoo - hee hee), thanks to Richmond, Virginia's very own Minor League Baseball team, the Flying Squirrels, who hosted Bark in the Park at the Diamond last night.
Yes, much to our relief, the threatening black rainclouds steered just clear of the ballpark and allowed hundreds of human and canine fans (including us) to enjoy a perfect evening celebrating a favorite American pastime. And as promised, here's the photographic evidence.
"Dewi, check it out. There's dogs everywhere."
"Why are you up there when you could be under here?"
"You rock, Mom!"
"I detect chemicals in my nose that make me want to have some of that, urgently, PLEEEZ."
"It's not easy being this good looking."
"Safe?!! Dude, did you get your glasses from 'Poor Eyes'?"
FREE doggie ice cream from Rita's. Dewi ate his and then stole another dog's later. Really.
The view below us.
If you look closely, you will see the team from Richmond PetLovers .com (on the right in the red T's). I'm 99.999 percent sure Sarah (of the blog) is seated on the far right. (I have met her once in person.)
And this is Yours Truly with a Dewi-dog growing out of her face. :)
Do you follow Layne's awesome blog named for her adorable dogs, Banjo and Millie?
We were lucky enough to meet all of them in person at the game, and we hadn't even planned it!
Layne, her husband and her doggies are super nice (and so very well-behaved). (What? Are you surprised that Layne was behaved?) :)
See how nicely Banjo and Millie are sitting? I, on the other hand, am having a bit of trouble with my boys.
"Okay, quickly, take the photo while I have them in this here choke hold!"
(Notice the looks on JF's and Dewi's faces. It should be a crime to have this much fun.)
Layne, her husband, Banjo and Millie, it was great meeting you!
Now, I'm curious. Are there any other professional baseball teams that sponsor similar dog-friendly game nights? Please tell!
