Bark in the Park

Yesterday, we took the boys to Chase Field for Bark in the Park - the Arizona Diamondbacks were playing the Milwaukee Brewers and pups were allowed to come and enjoy the day!

We thought we saw a few of our blogging friends there...
Mango, is that you?
Could that be Remington?

While we never did find out if we were seeing our blogging buddies in the crowd, we did have the honor of meeting KT and Easton from KT's Goldens!
Sam hasn't shrunk - Easton is really a big boy!
Easton is such a marvelous boy - gentle, mellow and quite the looker!  Our three boys got quite a bit of attention. 

Easton shaking paws!
We were a little bit worried about our Monty - occasionally we have had issues with him around other dogs.  We put him in a gentle leader to have more control of his head - just in case we had a situation with another dog.  To our surprise, he was wonderfully well behaved yesterday.  He really seemed to bond with Easton and look up to him!

Mom says I'm just a  big, fuzzy stinker!
It was hard to tell where one pup ended and the other started!
 Monty was even willing to let a passing Golden share in the treats that KT was handing out.

All right, but you can only have one...
 Monty was pretty fond of KT too - notice the paw on his knee!

I'd like another treat please!
 Monty always seemed to be looking the wrong way when something exciting was happening on the field.

 Easton enjoying the seventh inning stretch....

The dogs each got a good bag that included a ball toy - here Easton is enjoying his!

Sam and Easton...  These two have the biggest smiles!

Here are Monty's and Easton's paws for comparison.  We always thought Monty had some extra large paws!  Easton is on the right.

Sam hoping they will sign him on.  Although he got a lot of attention, nobody offered him a contract.  We may have to renegotiate what we pay him to appear on "How Sam Sees It"...

I think we all had a wonderful day!  It was wonderful meeting up with our friends, including friends from AZGRC and our new friends, KT and Easton!   ...and thank you, Brenda and Eugene for taking pictures of the parade, including:
The pooper scooper brigade!

  12. I can't tell you how much Easton and I enjoyed our time with Christine, Aaron, Sam and especially Monty the magnificent. I made Monty my special project with Easton as my Golden Rock of Gibraltar to win Monty over as a life long pal. I think it worked. Thank you guys for being so cool and hanging out with us at the game. We will always remember that day: dogs at a major league baseball game and meeting real friends in the flesh and fur who have only been ones and zeros up til now. This is much better !!!!!!!!!

  16. I saw that pic of monty on facebook and I love it! He is such a good looking boy. I am so jealous I wish they had something like this. Im thinking about the genter leader head collar for my over excited lab when meeting toddlers, she wants to lick them to death and I need more control.

  17. What? No hot dogs?

    I loved this post. So much fun.

  18. Howdy Sam, how amazing you got to go to a baseball game. Looks like heaps fun. Your friend certainly is big. Have a wonderful weekend. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  19. Woo! What fun that must have been! And yes! Easton has some might big swappers!!
    The D-backs she definitely sign Sam -- he'd make a wonderful mascot!!!

  20. That looks like a fun day! Sam didn't catch a fly ball?

  21. It's always fun to meet up with special buddies. Looks like you had a fabulous time too.
    Sending lotsaluv

  22. I hope lots of people see how well behaved these dogs are, and how much fun they are to hang out with and all of a sudden, dogs will be welcomed in the libraries, the restaurants, the stores, on buses, and trains, everywhere. That would be perfect for,

    Jo and Stella!

  23. The ballgame looked like a blast! We just got our application to go to the Padres game again this year. We go every year with a big group of Golden friends. We can't wait!

  24. This is so great!! Love that you connected with KT and Easton!! Did you know they would be there? They are in Seattle, no? Such a FUN event! Loved all the golden pix...
