Last year Sasha joined our adventure and what a fresh perspective to see our get-a-way spot from a dogs eye's. It was cool enough that she could stay in the Green Machine for any non-dog meals or shopping, but fortunately she was able to be with us in most of our exploration.
The first night there, she was the QUEEN of Cannery Row. After a quick happy hour stop (time for her to rest in the GM), we took her for a walk downtown among the shops and visitors. She was very well behaved and enjoyed the attention she received from every person that had to stop and talk to her, pet her or just ask what kind of dog she was. Of course, any time I left the pack to peer into a shop, she ignored all attention and kept a close eye on the door I disappeared into, until I returned safe.
The next day we took a guided walking tour of dog friendly downtown Carmel. She was able to walk through a hotel lobby and bar with us, of course stopping to be petted and admired. The most memorable was when we walked through a restaurant (an old silversmith building) and the party in the middle of the room fell silent to admire Sasha. At this point, she was more interested in their food, than the admiration. This restaurant even had a menu just for the dogs. If felt sorry for the rest of our party, as we were delayed at each stop, so Sasha could sign autographs for her admirers.
After a fun weekend, we headed home. For 2 1/2 days she had not been allowed freedom off the leash. To add a bit of fun to her trip, we found a deserted beach, took off her leash and let her run wild. With a sigh, we all packed up and headed home to pick up the newest member of our pack... Max.
Now we have to figure out how to do a trip like this with 2 Danes. So this year, we will once again go alone, and eagerly anticipate the "Glad to see you again" wagging tails.
Have a good week- Mindy Lu

Then I tried to get airborne like my friendMango does when he is a bee. But with dumb Max tied to me, I couldnt get off the ground.

After the dancing and singing got boring. Daddy gave me some extra attention with my favorite toy... THE PINK BONE!!
Now time to go back to sleep for the day. A doggie can handle only so much excitement!
BARK! Sasha the Princess-- Yaaaawwwwnnn!

One time when we passed this bush, I almost dragged daddy into it. I know there was a critter in there, but daddy wouldnt let me inspect. So each time we pass it, I keep a close eye on it. This time mommy let me explore.
If your not going to come out, I am going in for you!
Well, nothing was there this time. But I will have to keep a close eye next time, to protect mommy and daddy!
Did you know us doggies do not lap UP water? We slurp it under our tongue?This is my sexy water pose. Too bad you can't see all the water coming down on me in the dark.
Now the sexy water off me shake
Coming to the end of our walk. It is too dark to see that Daddy and dumb Max are resting in the grass. Too much work out for them I guess. Mommy lets me loose and I get to run to daddy and give him a big face slurp!
Awwww... the perfect night. Now time to sleep!
BARK!! Sasha the Princess!

They dont even acknowledge my presence. Just sound asleep and content.

Then we stop for a drink. Mommy says I can drink like a big girl.
Then we continue our run. This time, since there were no other furries nearby, I got to run without the strap. Usually I can run faster than mommy can ride, but I wanted to show off for the flashy thing.
I know that the little fluffy tailed things hang out in these tree's. So when we come through here, I have to keep an eye out for them. Sometimes they throw nuts at me.
I know your up there, somewhere! Come down you little fluffies! I just wanna play, really.
Daddy got home early too. What a perfect day!
Bark! Sasha the Princess

Max just doesnt seem to care. I tried to show him. "Look, silly pup! Look" But all he cares about if the petting it gets him.
He even proudly shows it off for mommy's flashy thing that pulled out to make it worse!
I followed him around trying to tell him how silly he looks, but he had to go in and show off to daddy too. By the way, notice daddy doing mommy's job here?
I think the Humane Society should be called and mommy needs to be reported for her torture to innocent sweet doggies like us! What do you think?
BARK! Sasha the princess!

The Santa Ana winds started on Sunday, causing the Halloween October chill to arrive early. Both of the doggies pee'd and ate as quick as possible and returned to the door to be let in.
How sad and miserable these faces look!

Mommy and daddy were done eating their yummies, so we got to join them in the eating room. I like to get real close to mommy to see what she ate. She surprised me with a treat this time. I not only got to smell what she was eating, but she let me have a taste too. Mommy says this picture is our "kissing" picture.
Then dumb pup Max had to get into the action.
Mommy was real happy at how gentle we were. This was a lot more fun than "BEG" ing for the yummies. And it made mommy happy. Or maybe it was that drink she had with her yummies.
BARK!!! Sasha the Princess

(note- see us at the front of the line. You know THE PRINCESS had to be noticed in the picture! I, mommy, am wearing a striped sweater)
Shortly after, our place arrived to the front of the line. Fearing having to stand in line with other dogs with Max, we explained our situation to the Store employee, who was nice enough to let us stay way behind the others, as we entered the store. We talked to producer Kay, explaining how they are both dog aggressive (of course, they both chose this time to place their heads on the table and give the most angelic look to Kay). Our biggest issue being Sasha's fence fighting and Max's aggression (he attacked a dog on New Years day). She explained they were looking for unique problems and suggested we videotape the problems and send them to her for later viewing.
That was it, we were done. A little disappointed we headed back home. However, we did get to see Cesar up close, and he did see Max, well, sort of, but it counts right?
We still watch him all the time, and continue to learn tips. Want to learn some yourself?

Looks like they found the water hole. I cant beleive they didnt take US with them!!! I dont know if I would want to ride on that floating thing though.
After we all got home, Mommy said we needed a bath. Max went first, then I showed him how it is done.
Step 3: pretend you arent loving all the touches and massaging with the towel on you
Step 3: Smile pretty for the flashy thing.
