It happened Thursday noon time. Mom and I have to cross a major road to get to my favorite Winter Street walk. Mom always tells me to wait as she watches for cars and trucks. When it is clear she tells me "OK" and I know we can cross. On Thursday we were waiting to cross. There was a Police car coming so mom told me to wait. The Policeman slowed down and flashed his lights to let us know we could cross. Mom said "OK" and bolted into a gallop. I almost pulled mom down. I guess I was going way too fast (Speed limit is only 35 MPH on that street) because the Policeman pulled me and mom over! He rolled down the window and told mom I was a fast dog. She went and told him I could run 45 mph! What was she thinking?! That was 10 miles over the speed limit! Mom told the Policeman that I was an ex-racer too. I got lucky this time and only got a warning! I'll have to slow down a bit!! BOL!!!
Saturday was my surprise day. I still had no idea where we were going. We went to the farmer's market like usual, but before we bought vegetables, mom and dad dragged me across the street to the groomers! I got my nails done. I know they needed it, but I don't have to like it! I kept hoping that my nails weren't the "Big Surprise"!! We got home form the farmer's market and mom and dad started making their lasagna. They were making 2 of them!!! OK, now I knew something else was up. Sure enough, as soon as the lasagna's came out of the oven, we packed up the car and off we went. We were on the highway when all the cars started slowing down. The cars where backed up as far as we could see. Daddy took the next exit and we used the GPS and a map to navigate on back roads. Daddy did great. When we arrived, I recognized where we were. We were at something mom and dad calls the "MARCnic" Every year mom and dad's animal rights group hold a big picnic. MARC stands for MA Animal Rights Coalition. All the food served is vegan, which is how mom and dad always eat anyway. The yard is fenced in so I could be off my leash. There were lots of people and dogs there. The people who tun MARC, Helen and Steve, have an animal sanctuary. They have rescued goats, chickens, ducks, bunnies and even 2 turtles. I had fun for the most part but this young boy kept chasing me around the yard. He wanted to pet me, but I was scared of him. I got my exercise! He finally stopped and I found a cool place in the shade to rest. I played some with the other dogs too. When it got dark they made a big fire in the pit. I didn't get too close to it. Mom and dad and all the other humans sat around the fire and talked. I was a tired dog when we got home. I slept until 8:30 this morning!! Mom was glad!!!

*Groan* Sorry your Mom is a "snitch" to the cops and you had a small human harass you. Did you at least get to eat some lasagna? Vegan or not, it was still people food, so it had to be good!
