Out and About in Minneapolis

I had a great time in Minneapolis!  Momma took me with her Wednesday when she went to lunch with her cousin.  They picked an outdoor cafe so that I could join them but unfortunately I didn't get to have any food.  I sat on Momma's lap while she ate and surprisingly or not, I was a good girl, only barking occasionally when dogs and people walked by.

After lunch we walked around and even into some shops.  There were several shops that had the "Dogs Welcome" sign so in I walked, accepting the welcome and looking for treats.

This nice shop owner gave me several treats.  I had to sit to get them but I was happy to do so.

I didn't get any of these dog bone treats at the bakery I got kicked out of but that was okay because I had a great time hanging out with Momma and her cousin.

Soon it was time to say goodbye to Momma's cousin who rode away on her cool trike.  I asked for a ride on it but Momma said maybe another time.  I thinks that means I will be going back to Minneapolis!

I was so tired from lunching and shopping that I fell asleep in the strangest position.  It didn't matter because I can sleep anytime and anywhere.

I needed to take a nap when we got back to the hotel because Momma told me I was going to dinner with her and Daddy.  This was where I did my daytime sleeping while at the hotel.  I slept with my head on Momma's dirty t-shirt on the arm of the chair because it helped me calmed down.  

This is my sleepy face.  Nap time!

Momma woke me up a couple of hours later and soon we were all in the car on our way to dinner.  The original plan was to eat at an Italian restaurant but then Momma's cousin called to say she wanted to go to a restaurant with an outdoor patio so I could join them.  Yay!

I was kind of a spaz at the restaurant so Momma put me in my own chair.  It didn't really help so Daddy pulled out the big guns.

This was the first time I'd ever had tater tots but it won't be the last.  I loved these things!  Momma thought they were a little greasy (right!) but that was okay with me.  

Yummy!  Feed me more!

Thursday was very uneventful for me except that I got to go in a grocery store.  I also went into a CVS on Wednesday.  Momma said that I am becoming like Puglet, going into stores until told to leave.  Luckily, I didn't get kicked out of the grocery store because we were there to buy lunch.  Did I mention I got lots of pets in the stores?  The people of Minneapolis loved me!

I couldn't go to the Twins baseball game Thursday night so Momma turned on the tv and left me at the hotel to watch whatever I wanted.  I didn't really have a great time but I did catch up on my sleep.

As much as I loved Minneapolis I was happy to go home.  I slept almost the whole 6 hour car ride home which made Momma happy because she was tired.

I am looking forward to my next road trip.  I wonder where I will go.
