We didn’t tell anyone because Mom doesn’t like to advertise when we go on vacation, but we went to Florida for two weeks. We know lots of bloggers in Florida, but it just so happened that this trip we got to meet Gizmo and his mom Beth from Terrier Torrent. They drove down to our place in Fort Myers to visit us. I was really excited to meet them and thought I should have some kind of a gift. Gizmo is a guy, guys usually like beer, so I decided to bring a six pack of Bowser Brew (dog beer) with me for our meet up.
Well, I guess I found the only guy that doesn’t like beer. He found my gesture nice but said no thank you to the beer. My sisters and I love the beer. Since Bailie is a speed eater and drinker, she finished hers and decided to try to finish off mine, but I let her know that was not going to happen!
Gizmo’s mom brought some really tasty Cloud Star Gingerbread Christmas Buddy Biscuits Cloud Star Gingerbread Christmas Buddy Biscuits along, and we were able to sample them and let her know our thoughts. We loved them, and couldn’t seem to get enough of them! They even smelled so good, the humans wanted to try them!
We then decided to go to a park to take a nice walk. We found that many parks in Fort Myers do not allow dogs which was very disappointing, but we did finally find a nice place where we could all go for a good walk. We got out at the John Yarbrough Linear Park which had a trail running along a creek on one side and some marshy area on the other.
We walked and walked, it was a nice area, but we were all getting so thirsty. Bailie won the prize for longest tongue I think! We knew there was water waiting for us back at the car, so we finally headed back. On the way back Beth pointed out to us that there was an alligator in the creek. Mom has reptile phobia, so that made her walk a bit faster back to the car. We were happy that gator just stayed in the water too. Luckily we didn’t see a snake or that would have been too much for Mom. We rarely walk outside our neighborhood when we are in Florida because of Mom’s fear of reptiles.
It was really great to actually meet a blog buddy in person! Mom met lots of blog friends at BlogPaws, but since I was left behind, I didn’t get that chance. BlogPaws 2014…look out…Emma is on her way!
