Tourist on Main Street

We had brunch in downtown Waynesville like we often do on Saturday mornings.  We can get a table on the sidewalk, park The Jeep with The Herd within sight of our table, and enjoy things before it gets too crowded.  One of the best aspects of a sidewalk table is to watch all of the visitors – and there are certainly a lot in town since this is the official kick-off weekend of the 27th Annual FolkmootUSA, a two-week celebration of the world’s cultural heritage through folk music and dance.  But of all of the tourists on our sidewalks, one in particular caught our eye.  We found out that we had a lot in common, because he is also a rescue and was adopted from our friends at Southern Siberian Rescue.

Hi, my name is Chinook, and this is my pal behind me (the hu-dad forgot Chinook's friend's name. Yet another demerit).

Don't you love my baby blues? (And the nameless friend sniffing Hi to The Herd in the Jeep).

But, I am a Siberian, and this whole flashy beast thing is so yesterday's news. Let's move along.

    You have some of the most beautiful baby blues. Your friend sneaking in the back is cute to. 🙂

    That is one big Sibe! He’s got Paul Newman eyes! Did he recognize The Herd? Was he impressed to be near so much greatness?

    Sooooo beautiful eyes!
    Kisses and hugs

    Chinook and friend are very handsome. Bet the Herd enjoyed meeting a new furiend AND rescue.

    The festival sounds like a fun one.

    It’s okay, hu-dad, Dennis’s mom usually focuses on vizslas to the exclusion of other dogs too when we meet them! 🙂

  11. AC on July 25, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    Yes, beautiful eyes! I also like the expression on the nameless friend’s face in the first picture.

    Looks like a great place to spend Sunday morning.

  15. Scout and Freyja on July 25, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Isn’t it fun to sit down on a lovely day and do some dog watching and some people watching, too? BTW, those blue eyes rival old Frankie Sinatra’s any day!

  16. KB on July 25, 2010 at 9:34 am

    I do love the baby blues!!!! What a great visitor to your town. So, how many demerits does the hu-dad have, and what’s the punishment??? 🙂
