“D.C. was GREAT! They’ve got dirty, old chicken bones on the sidewalk, just waiting to be eaten! Sometimes they’re hidden, but if you scrounge around in the weeds a little, you’re sure to find a snack. And lots of new people to fool into giving you extra bones! Oh, and the dogs! A new friend on every corner! I even learned to climb stairs — OK, so my mom MADE me do it, but now I’m good at it. I won’t miss those terrifying grates on the sidewalks or all the people staring at me like they’ve never seen a big dog before or the horrid thunder-and-lightening storms during the night… Had to wake up Mom for those because I was too scared to sleep. But dog-oh-dog, what a vacation!”

I <3 Cooper. 🙂
I hate those chicken bones. Barracks Row is the worst. My husband and I have removed bones from Cleveland’s mouth more times than I want to remember:)
So glad he was able to visit!
Where do they COME from?
Glad Cooper got to visit. I should have sent this to you earlier, but here is a great post by friends Rod and Amy about places to go with your dog in pet friendly DC. http://www.gopetfriendlyblog.com/2009/11/pet-friendly-washington-dc/
Oh, thanks Peggy!
Gotta love dogs.
