Fun In The Sun!

Our pawrents must have felt REALLY guilty for leaving us home on Monday cuz on Tuesday they took us with them for a long ride.  And we went to a place where there were no polluted skies!  A place the inversion did not know about AND it was not freezing cold!  And then we went on a very long walk!
There was a long paved trail.  It goes over 20 miles!
The sun was shinning so brightly that mom said she was going to have to take off her jacket.  She said it was in the lower 40's whatever that means.
It felt so good to be on a long walk again.  We practiced our STOP command.
Eventually the paved path was no longer plowed.  This was to allow cross country skiing.
 I was practicing a SIT-STAY command here.
Stanley was practicing SIT-STAY too.
After we walked on the trail we went into town.  It is a small mountain town called Park City.  But right now there are lots of people there because something is going on that attracts many tourists and movie stars.  It is called the Sundance Film Festival.  Mom said it is famous.

We wondered who they were trying to get a picture of with such a big camera.
We kept our eyes peeled looking for movie stars.  We know they are here somewhere!
These houses are crammed in right above main street.  Many of them don't look like much but their location makes them cost lots of money!  Lots of rich people like to ski the surrounding resorts.

There are movie screenings all over town (as well as in the town we live by).
Mom and dad said this was a wonderful way for us to practice walking past a lot of people.  On the lower part of Main Street it was thick with so many people.  And of course all kinds of people stopped  to ask about me and Stanley.  One lady stopped her car right in the street and called over to us because we are so cute!  Another lady was on her way to a screening (she was part of the festival cuz she was wearing credentials) and talked to my pawrents about 15 minutes and even took pictures of us!

We never did see a movie star BUTT there was one person that people were getting excited about.  His vehicle pulled into a driveway alongside a restaurant.  Then he and his entourage got out.  A guy on the sidewalk was staring and was so shocked he said a HBO word.  But mom did not know who it was.  She is really out of the loop on these things anyway.

We had a very fun day and got lots of attention from the nice people.  Oh, and mom and dad said they will take us running with them as soon as we learn to stay along side them on walkies.  We tend to switch sides as the mood strikes us and mom said if we did that while running we might trip them and they could fall down and get hurt bad.  So I guess we're not too mad that we didn't get to go on Monday.  Mom said she ran 13 miles and i don't think I could have stayed on one side for that long.  But we are practicing cuz mom said "One day . . . "  We can't wait!

Pee Ess - Me and Stanley tried on our tuxedos and they fit perfectly!  We are really looking forward to our dates with Millie and Remy to the Blogville Valentine's Day Ball.  Mom is working with us on some dance steps too.

How exciting that you got to visit the Sundance Film Festival! My papa has gone to Sundance a couple of times and says it is always lots of fun. You did very well with all those people and the crowded houses!

Your pal, Pip

Molly The Wally said...

Ditto Pip. We think they got the big cameras out as they wanted pix of you guys as you are the real stars. Autograph, autograph please. What a fun walk. We think the peeps are forgiven. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

You guys live in the coolest(pun intended)place on the planet....movie stars passing you by on the streets probably. Tom Selleck comes here a lot for that TV show he used to do. He needs a big LICK next time I sees him. You are so lucky to have that 20 mile route....I could do a number(pun intended) on that strip...lol. Listen you should go back to town and mingle...what fun if you could run into someone and get your picture taken with them. Thanks for dropping by so much you guys...I love hearing and seeing about your beautiful mountain world.

Cheers Sophie Doodle over and out!

Hey there, So glad you got to go on a walkabout! What fun; the hiking trail looks so wonderful, perfect to practice training. That's a lot of people-btw, what does HBO mean? Your sit-stays look perfect. Hunter is good at that and wait but yesterday while on a walk with friends, he saw another dog and went balistic-growling, barking, sounding fierce-which he isn't. I don't like that type of behavior. It is going to be a long, really long, time before Hunter can ever try to be off leash. Have a wonderful day! Maybe you guys should all move to Colorado-where we get a little smog in the summer but no heavy inversion layers. That would be so cool!!!!
Paws and Enjoy!

Words you hear on HBO and not regular over-the-air stations (swear words).

Hi Guys, I'm so glad your mom and dad took you out for a nice hike. Too bad you didn't see any famous peeps at the festival.

Oh I can't wait to see you in your tuxes. Mommy is working on our ball gowns right now. We had a meet up with Remy today and my mom checked the pattern she made to make sure it would fit Remy too and it did.

I better give my mom back her thumbs so she can get working on our dresses.

Take care,

Millie
