Cami came visiting last weekend and I was all eager to show her the new dog friendly outlets in town. Prior to that, we played frisbee at the park and I got a telling off by Ms Owner for performing too many dunks … in the mud puddles. Major clean up effort was required afterwards.
For brunch, we tried the Fogal Deli & Restaurant in Plaza Damas (refer to my previous post for a review). Cami just loves attention from humans and she absolutely adores kids. So she plonked herself in front of the entrance and proceeded to greet each and every customer who stepped out from the shop. One kid even received a Cami’s special … a kiss on the lips. I am only sociable when my toys are up for grabs, otherwise I’ld rather just go into stakeout mode and keep an eye on the drain and floor cracks for rats and roaches.
Well she did teach me a new move which came in very handy at cafes … ‘How to beg for leftovers’.With soothing tiles on the corridor, we easily adjusted into lounging mode. Just the ideal place for sausage, eggs and bacon breakfast and waking up to a lazy weekend.
At night, I brought her to my favourite hangout … Sid’s Pub in TTDI. I have rated this pub as 4 paws for being a truly dog friendly outlet. We managed to get the popular window seat at the entrance corner where you can catch all the action on the inside and outside.
Cami immediately placed herself in front of the entrance in an attempt to steal some free belly rubs from the patrons. Then she tried out the leather pub benches and finally settled for the best seat in the house … the window sill. Despite all the noise and chatter, she succumbed into deep sleep for a good hour or so. You could be easily fooled into thinking that the resident black cat was snoozing on the ledge. A customer quipped that she must have had one too many drinks. She must have felt very much at home.
Whilst she is very sociable with humans, K9s be prepared … don’t be fooled by her innocent, demure looks. She’s all terrier and like me, very possessive of her frisbee. Before the weekend was over, she got into a couple of scraps at the training field with fellow JRTs, Russell and Mei Mei. Russell for trying to steal her frisbee and Mei Mei for hogging the open tunnel. Being a real busybody, I also got into the act, and attempted to referee both wrestling matches. However, I got too excited and almost turned it into a threesome tag team match. Russell, being, truly thick skinned, was hardly bothered. Mei Mei, being an amateur wrestler, walked away with a cut on her ear. We both got a real dressing down from my owners for being such ruffians.
Was neat having her in the house … someone furry to fool around with finally. This visit, she certainly warmed up to my attention and I had a grand time chasing her around the apartment, playing bitey face, nippy snout and scruffy neck. Not very ladylike and fairly rough according to Mr Owner, but we like it that way. We even did it under the coffee table and lounge sofa … play wrestle, that is.
Certainly a far cry from entertaining myself with the resident stiffy chew bone, oddly shaped toy balls and fast exhausted owners.
