Sugar comes to Phoenix

One of the things I love best about being a dog blogger is getting a chance to meet other dog bloggers.  On Friday, we arranged to meet the beautiful Sugar, who would be passing through Phoenix with her family.   We had tried a couple of times in the past, but something always seemed to come up.

Harlow is our dog-friendly dog so she was the one who came along.  Well, that and the fact that she decided her bandage needed to come off and I needed to keep a closer eye on her.  I boosted her up in the work truck and we headed out.

Lately, Harlow thinks that folks are following us when we drive.  She keeps a close eye on them to make sure they don't do anything sneaky...
Dere dey are again, Momma.  Always in different cars, but dey are dere....
After I proved I am a country girl and can't figure out how to get into a hotel, Sugar's folks came out and rescued me and we settled down in the hotel courtyard for a nice chat.
Beautiful Sugar!
We had the nicest visit!  Harlow was a perfect lady and only manged to bonk everyone with her giant padded paw a few times.  She loved Sugar and her folks!
Hey dere, Sugar's Momma.  I iz watching you...
Much to our surprise, Harlow actually ate part of a banana.  Yes, you read that right.  I think she saw Sugar enjoying hers and decided to give it another try...
Watcha got dere, Sugar's Momma?
Look at Sugar's sweet face!  :)

...and yes, I have pictures of Harlow eating the banana...
Sugar is definitely the sweetest dog you could ever meet.  ...and such a lady!  She talks to her people to let them know she wants something.  I think Harlow was studying her and trying to figure out how she could talk to us.
The signature purple Pawz.
Of course, we needed to get a few photos with the Golden Girls together...
Watcha got dere?  Is that a treat?

Dat looks like a vegetable to me...

I love Sugar's smile!  Harlow was a little skeptical...
BOL - Sugar's Mom was offering them cauliflower as a treat for posing.  Sugar loved it, Harlow did try a piece and actually ate it.  I think she was trying to impress Sugar.

I didn't want to keep Sugar's folks as they were planning an early start the next day, so after a while we said our good byes and Harlow and I headed home...
We are hoping to catch up again with everyone on their return trip through Phoenix, plus maybe take a slight detour to introduce them to Baron and the rest of the ponies, Aaron and of course, our Mr Monty.  We really enjoyed being able to meet Sugar and her family!


  1. You are so cute together <3 Love you both xx

  2. Fantastic!!! I can tell you all had so much fun!!

  3. You met beautiful smiler Sugar. OH very envious, on her return journey if you see her can you please send her a big hug from us. Sugar has always been a favorite because of her smiles. Looks as if Harlow is mirror image. Get that paw well soon Harlow. Lots of luvs and luvs to Sugar too x x x

  4. How cool that you got to meet Them. As far as Harlow and banana, all of her principles just went out the door.

  5. Sugar will teach you lots of good things Harlow

  6. Meeting fellow-bloggers in da furs is just the best. Harlow, you've met royalty!


  7. So, so, happy you guys got to meet. Sugar's roadies/support staff, they are wonderful people. I believe Sugar may be the perfect mentor for Harlow. Sugar is long past princess and is now QUEEN of Chicago and all points north!! Rumor has it she may be out to conquer the Golden State. Stay tuned.

  8. I'm so jealous you got to meet Sugar. I met her very nice mom but Sugar wasn't along.

    It's cute that Harlow watched Sugar for things to learn.

  9. What fun! And Harlow - we are so impressed that you ate the fruit and veg! I haven't had cauliflower. Is it good?
    Yours sincerely,
    Maggie T.

  10. That is so exciting! Fantastic that you got to meet Sugar in the furs. We're not Vegie and fruit dogs most of the time. But we might have tried them if we were with Sugar, too!

    You are so lucky Harlow!

  11. Oh my, how wonderful, you got to meet Sugar, how cool is that!!!
    And she's taught you good eating things already. Yous a lucky girl Harlow

  12. What a fun treat to get to meet Sugar and her family! I've only ever met Sugar's Mom, who is so kind, thoughtful and gracious, and like you, I so enjoyed meeting her! I'm glad you had such an enjoyable visit, and Sugar certainly is an example for even Princess Harlow to follow!

  13. that was so cool you got to meet and greet

  19. What incredible fun! Lady Sugar can be Harlow's mentor, on eating all things fruit and vegetable, and even on how to talk!!!!!! I love those photos of the two golden girls!

  20. That's great. A couple of good looking pooches there.

  21. What a lovely meeting!! Food is always better when some other doggy's eating it! But I wouldn't smile for cauliflower, either. Blegh!

  22. We missed it!

    Ha - Harlow cracks me up! Blueberry only eats bananas when she doesn't want me to have the whole thing. I suspect that was Harlow's game too. ;)

  23. Oh :-) it was great to meet you guys. So glad Harlow had some bananas and cauliflower. Sweet Harlow :-) maybe next time will meet Monty. Sending you guys lots of Golden LOVE <3
