We met up with Abby, Hana, Cappy and Oliver and went to Forge in The Forest for lunch. They are super doggie friendly. They had a separate eating area for people who had dogs so all dog lovers were there. They even have a doggie menu. I saw so many doggies. Mommie did not let me say hi to be safe but it was fun taking a peek at them from where I was. We celebrated Abby's birthday too. We got Abby a treat box with chicken flavored popcorn, cheese hearts, peanut butter bones, apple oatmeal treats and a rollhide. Her Mommie said she could eat the popcorn when they watched tv that night but looks like Abby already ate most of it during lunch. No sense in waiting. It was after all her birthday lunch. We also brought treats for Hana, Cappy and Oliver.
We dropped by this dog store called Diggidy Dog. We got some complimentary treats from the saleslady. Goodie! Plus we had a nice surprise coz we saw Wendell there. Abby and Hana got new leashes. Mommie got me .... all natural peppermint bug repellant?!? Phooey!
Everywhere we looked there were so many pretty flowers. Lots of opportunity for picture ops.
And we also saw a squirrel. Abby spotted it right away.
It was a tad warm at times so it was nice to see this fountain. A bit of the water sprayed on us and felt really cool. Abby and I were fascinated by the water but Hana was more interested in the local foliage. She kept eating the purple flowers.
And the bench hunting continued on this trip. These benches are just right for the three of us. We walked pretty far and I did really well and was able to keep up with the gals. When Mommie noticed I was getting too tired, we went to the Lamp Lighter Inn. We stayed at the garden area and while they chatted, we doggies all took a much needed break. I took a quick nap on the bench there. The innkeeper even invited us to stay for wine and cheese. But we decided not to stay coz we were all pretty tired by then and figured it was time to head on home.
It was a long day but super fun. Hana and I took a nap in the car on the way home.
