I had the best afternoon. Mom took me to my very first playdate. It was a group called "Boston Commons" in Edina.
The excursion didn't start out well. I had my harness on and my jacket and I was so excited. I got into the car and it dawned on me. Mom only takes me to the vet or to have my toe nails trimmed. Oh no, what was I thinking. I had to get out of here. But Mom clever minx that she is, was already pulling out of the garage. Well I hate to admit it and luckily there were no witnesses (except Mom) I cried like a little girl. My tears dried up once I realized we had passed the road that goes to the Vet. Now I was intriqued. Where were we going?
Imagine my delight when we walked into a building that did not smell like a vets office. In fact, the smells were wonderful. We went through a gate and I got my bearings and then mirror images of me started coming through that same gate. Was I hallucinating? Ever the curious one, I had to go and check it out. They were pups that looked a lot like me.
Mom was a little apprehensive at first and kept me on the leash for awhile. Of course as this was my first enounter with these facimilies of myself I had to show them who was boss and did a lot of vocalizing. Mom was sure we were going to get kicked out, but I settled down and had the time of my life for an hour and a half. I must have smelled 13 butts. I seemed to gravitate toward the male species and Mom was little concerned about that choice and I chased a gazillion balls. I met a larger dog named Oreo that could put two balls in his mouth at one time. He tried to teach me but as big as Priscilla says my mouth is, it's not that big.
So I had the most wonderful afternoon. Thanks Mom. It was heaven.
When we got home Mom thought for sure I would nap. Surprise Mom! Here's my ball - lets play catch. You should have seen the look on Mom's face. She couldn't believe I was still raring to go.
Mom said if I'm good we can go again in April. Yay!!!!!

That's playdate sounds like it was a total blast! What fun, bet you cannot wait to go again! All that play must have just energized you to go again when you got home! What an exciting day for you!
