Doggie Date Night

Last night Daisey & I went to one in a series of outdoor movies in the park at the Largo Central Park. Each Friday night in May they are playing a family-oriented film and each week has a theme. Last night's was "Doggie Date Night" and your canine friends were invited to attend.

Here's a photo of Daisey strolling along from the parking area to the park greenspace. The event "opened" at 6:30 meaning that is when the concessioners opened & themed events began. They gave out some raw hide chews for the dogs & cardboard fans for the humans although the weather was perfect - warm but with a slight breeze.

This is the view walking up to the area. This shot was taken probably close to 7:30 which, as you can see, is way to bright to show a movie yet.

I was wondering how they were going to show a movie outside and on what. I guess on a building? Nope! They had this giant inflatable screen - actually it looked as though the black frame part was inflatable and the white screen part wasn't. Very clever ;)

Then Daisey & I proceeded to share a Philly Cheesteak that "we" purchased on the way. The lady in the drive up recognized Daisey as a Rat Terrier because she had 4 of them :) That's a clever little "Outward Hound" device there for transporting food & water.

Daisey on our quilt in all her glory - freckles in her ears & her overbite showing. She was a busy girl almost all night & constantly walking around me.

You can see as the time drew near there were a lot of people in attendancebut it wasn't crowded and everyone had a good view - even those of us who did not bring a folding chair.

After dinner we started to have visitors.........................

and another........................................

and another.............................

and Daisey actually played with this little puppy. They were moving so fast i oculdn't get a good shot. He's a cross between a toy fox terrier & a rat terrier.

The movie shortly after it started. The picture got even better when it was pitch black.

A Snapper In the Hood

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
