Rock Stars

There was a girl’s soccer match in Asheville today.  How do I know that?  We parked at a Panera Bread for lunch when a mob of early teen girls wearing Knoxville soccer shirts came out and crowded around the Herd.  The dogs ate up all of the attention until the girls’ mothers came out to get the girls to leave – and then, of course, fawned over the dogs too.  Pictures were taken, ears scratched, and general stroking of the already inflated egos of the Herd.

As soon as the Knoxville girls left, the opposing team – from Greensboro – came out of the restaurant and we repeated the experience.

Oh, yeah, and throw in the various others who came out to meet the Herd.

Never a dull moment.

    Typical behavior when Sibes (or Mal’s) are around! We do deserve all the adoration though!!

    Have you all thought of joing the Dogs With Blogs community? It is a GREAT group of doggie bloggers, and a great way to get more visitors to your blog. If you want more info, just go to and take a look around. Most of my doggie friends are all members.

The Queen and Decorum

August 11, 2010 |

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
