I hope all my pup pals are having a fun, safe 4th Of July today. Please tell your humans to keep you in the house during the fireworks tonight. Loud noises can scare us!

Mom, dad and I went to a picnic today! We left a little late and ended up running into 2 detours. Mom thought they were because of parades. We were only 30 minutes late however and things were just getting started. We didn't miss much. Daddy set up my exercise pen and mom filled my water bowl. Dad got the chairs from the car and then mom and dad went to get food. Mom brought me two cookies so I would have a treat too. Mom and dad's friend, Marie, came. She brought her Spanish greyhound (galgo)to the picnic too. His name was Rico. The yard was pretty big and most of the dogs were off leash so mom let me run and play with him and the other dogs for a bit. Then she put me back in the pen. Marie didn't want to walk around with Rico so mom told her that he could stay in the pen with me. I was OK with that and everything was fine for a while. Rico had never been in a pen before and he started to get upset. I was laying down on the ground eating my last cookie. Rico started to paw at the pen. Then another black dog came over. Rico went into a play bow and started bouncing around. He clearly did not know how to behave. I got nervous with all the energy and I corrected Rico. The humans thought we were fighting but no harm was intended. It was all display as I demanded respect and peace in my pen. Marie removed Rico and everything was OK after that. A while later mom let me out of the pen and let me go off leash. I always stay close to mom and dad and I had already had a good run. I walked around a bit and laid on the cool ground by my humans. Mom and dad took me for a walk and then let me go off leash in the yard again. I saw Rico a few times and we were very friendly with each other. I do like him. Mom explained he had never been in a pen before. All my other greyhound friends know how to behave. He is from Spain so maybe he just didn't understand.
It was a fun day. Glad to be back in my bed though. Happy 4th Of July everyone!
