small dog, big city

There's something about the Downtown Los Angeles skyline that makes me feel... even smaller. But I still like looking at the bright lights of this city. And much as I hate to admit it, I miss the man and woman who take care of me.

The woman tends to go overboard sometime with her displays of affection for me, but I've gotten used to her singing me to sleep with "Puppy Love" and wiping me down every time I come back inside from doing my business on the patio. I miss how the man who takes care of me lets me sleep on top of the bed with him, watching reruns of The Simpsons while we wait for the woman to finish her bedtime rituals.

Don't get me wrong, I love visiting with my brother Cody and his loftmates, I'm having a blast. But I miss sleeping in my own bed and being the only puppy in the house. Okay, I'm going to say it, I miss my "mom" and "dad".

packing for a trip

The man and woman who take care of me are going away on a trip to this place called Germany and they're not taking me. I'm going to stay with my brother Cody and his loftmates a few blocks away and I don't know if they have a computer with Internet access, so I might not be blogging for a while.

The woman who takes care of me said that I've been really good, but they had so many things to take care of before leaving tomorrow so they won't be able to take me to the Bow Wow Brunch this Sunday at the Omni Hotel after all. And after I asked all those bitches The Lofty Dog's Yappy Hour to meet me there, too.

Speaking of bitches, yesterday afternoon I was walking home along Main Street when I ran into Joe and Ruby in front of Metropolis Books. She's so sweet. I wonder why I never see her at Yappy Hour? Earlier today I met three cute Pekingese in front of the Old Bank Market, but where else do all the cute dogs hang out downtown?

doggy brunch at the omni

I just got in trouble with the woman who takes care of me, so I'm not sure if I'll be allowed to attend this event, but this Sunday, September 16th, is the last Bow Wow Brunch of the season at the Omni Hotel at California Plaza:

"From the people who created an overnight room package for you and Fido, the Omni Los Angeles Hotel is inviting doggies and their owners to dine al fresco for a special brunch at the Grand Café Terrace on Sunday, Sept. 16. For humans, the menu includes items such as walnut raisin country-style French toast and smoked salmon eggs benedict. Doggie delectables will feature Barking for a Burger Bowl, Tail Chasing Veggies and Rice, and Panting Puppy Peanut Butter Patties.

The meal is $14.95 for the Continental buffet or $19.95 for the deluxe buffet. The price per pooch is $6.95 (each item). Go ahead, ask for a doggy bag."

I'm going to give the woman a good dose of my puppy dog eyes, see if I can't cajole her out of being mad at me because I really want to go. It wasn't really even my fault. If she didn't want me to chew on that orchid plant, she shouldn't have left it just sitting there on the floor, right where I could reach up and grab the leaves, those chewy moss things, and all that yummy dirt. Hmm, she's in the kitchen. Okay, first I'll go in the bedroom and chew on that pink shoe, then I'll go in the kitchen and see if she's over being mad at me.

yappy hour this thursday!

It's that time again, the monthly Downtown Art Walk means I'm going to check out Yappy Hour at The Lofty Dog.

From the Downtown Art Walk website:

Special Event for dogs!
Yappy Hour Every 2nd Thursday of the Month.... after you have visited all the Galleries on Gallery Row you can land your Paws at the Loftydog!!!! 120 W. 2nd St. 213-687-8820 7 to 9 pm. Live music. Local Restaurant Colori will be sponsoring the food. PUPS!! will be on hand for KISSES!!!

Kisses?! Woo hoo! I'm gonna get me some of that! I better chew on some of those fresh breath bones before I go. I hope Luca, Boo, Kloey, Dalai, Cody and other downtown dogs I haven't met yet attend, I've had a touch of cabin fever and really need to let loose and play. If you read my blog and I haven't met you yet, stop by the Lofty Dog and introduce yourself. Oh yeah, and bring treats.
