Remember in my Army of Squirrels post, I talked about the squirrels that hang out in the back yard and taunt Pepper and I. Well, mom showed me these pictures just recently and I vow to leave baby squirrels alone until they have the ability to try to out run me…or their mom isn’t watching!





Of course if I ever did get set upon by a mama squirrel, I wouldn’t allow pictures to be taken of my ass whooping…. This poor dog is probably in therapy….or at least needed a Leinie’s after that ordeal!

Mom and I went down to Rome Georgia over the July 4 weekend. I like road trips, they mean I get to see friends and family and do cool stuff.

Went to a picnic and fun match with the Greater Atlanta Dog & Disc Club. Our friend Cyndy signed mom and I up for the Toss & Fetch and we came in 4th place in the Novice division. I had a blast! I love a frisbee and mom learned some new tricks and she mentioned trying to find something locally to keep up with it!

It was hot at The Georgia Dog Gym! So this was my prefered way of cooling off after practicing some jumping skills.


Mom had me doing some cool tricks for more of the cousins on our way home. I went through the legs of 3 people…my cousin Chad’s pants were so low the tunnel looked funny by the time I got to him 🙂

Needless to say I had fun with my friends in GA, I learned a ton and can’t wait to go down to visit again.

xyz41008 031Sad news for Richmond Virginia  beer lovers! All About Beer Magazine sent out a press release today confirming that the 29 August 2009 World Beerfest Richmond has been postponed until spring of 2010 (date to be released)

All About Beer Magazine announced today that the World Beer Festival scheduled for August 29 in Richmond will be held instead in the spring of 2010.

The World Beer Festivals have been held annually in Durham, NC for 14 years; Raleigh, NC for five years; and Columbia, SC for one year. Richmond, with its thriving beer community, will be the fourth city to host the event, which brings together several thousand beer lovers for an opportunity to sample a wide range of beers in a safe and enjoyable setting.

“We are committed to putting on a world-class event,” said Daniel Bradford, producer of the festival and publisher of All About Beer Magazine. “Some of the preparations are taking longer than expected, and we need more time to ensure that the World Beer Festival Richmond meets its potential. The Richmond beer community is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and the World Beer Festival has a unique role to play in enhancing that community.”

“The World Beer Festivals are complex events that reflect our mission of educating and entertaining beer drinkers about the beauty and diversity of beer,” said Bradford. “The unique quality of the festivals spring from a commitment to detail, so that everyone attending—the consumers, the brewers, and the volunteers—leaves the festival enriched.”

The date of the spring event will be announced as soon as possible. The World Beer Festival staff will work closely with partners in Richmond to transition to the new date and make certain all the parties have ample time to plan.


Mom is in a bit of a depressed mood about this news. Apparently we were going to have a bit of a party going on here in Richmond that weekend and were going to see old friends, new friends and family….and my friends from NC were going to come up…the Fourleggeds! Something to look forward to next spring!
