After the show Mom put me back in the car and told me were going to see the sites. I wasn't too excited as she wound around on those city streets, but the first place she took me was a blast. (Note from Dachshund Mom: we visited Dallas Heritage Village located in the Old City Park). I had so much fun and would have had more fun if Mom would have let me chase all those squirrels that were running around!
|There must be at least 10 squirrels over there under that tree. Look at 'em, Mom!|
|Hey squirrels - if I wasn't on this silly leash I would so have you all up that tree!|
Then it was back in the car - I was ready for some air-conditioning and a nap. But the nap wasn't to be. We drove back through the city streets and then, gulp, my Mom drove our car right down under a building! Yeah, no kidding, she did! I wasn't sure what was going on, but then we got out and rode up an elevator and we were right in the heart of Big D! How did my Mom do that?
Getting off this thing was scary. Mom had to carry me because the steps were steep and then there was a gap to the curb. I started to freak out when she tried to pick me up and she didn't get a good grip on me. I was somewhat dangling as she came down the steps and landed on the curb - you would have thought that one of the trolley men or someone would have helped her! But, she got us back onto a sidewalk and we went back to the park and ate at a restaurant. Well, Mom ate and I laid under the table. Can you imagine? I got to go to a restaurant! We sat on a patio and enjoyed the view of the park. Mom and I got annoyed with some people sitting outside the restaurant that kept letting their two big dogs wander over and taunt me. I do not like big dogs and, besides, I'm almost human and don't want you sticking your slimey dog nose in mine.
We walked around some more after we ate, but it was getting hot. Mom was worried about me getting too hot and too tired, so we went back down under that building and got in our car. We came back to the hotel. She said we might go back there tomorrow and see some more things. I'm really not sure what is going on here, but I'm having fun doing new things! Let's just skip that dog show Mom and go places!
