I got to meet a lot of my blogger friends at BlogPaws recently. We got lucky enough to meet one of our Twitter fans recently.
I have been posting a lot about spending time in Sequim working on my grandparent’s house. One of our Twitter followers, P.Dog, saw that and tweeted that they were from Sequim too. We got to talking and realized she lived just down the street from my Grandparent’s house. Last week when I was over there, we made arrangements to meet.
PDog is very beautiful. As you can see, she is a little bigger than Gretel and doesn’t look like a Dachshund at all. We have friends of all shapes, sizes and nationalities. We are very cultured 🙂
I can be a bit ignorant sometimes though. PDog’s owner told me that Labradors are from Labrador Canada. I know that a lot of dogs are named after what they do or where they are from but I had never given that much thought when it came to Labs. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even know there was such a place as Labrador Canada. I guess you really do learn something new every day.
PDog is still a bit of a puppy and full of energy. Her mom kept him busy chasing his ball in our big, grassy yard. I had a really great talk with her Mom. Before I knew it, we had been talking an hour.
We had a lot to talk about. We are both dog lovers, blog [Yes, Twitter is a micro-blog so it counts 🙂 ], like photography and have a love for travel.
Gretel wasn’t a very gracious host at first. She is always anxious around new dogs. I kept her focused on me with treats and eventually she didn’t mind getting sniffed 🙂
