Sun 10.28.07 – Today was the Haute Dog Howl-oween Parade on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore area of Long Beach. Scruffy was a “Little Devil”, Belle was a bee, and we commandeered Abbey from Family Callis to be Mephisto (although most folks thought she was Toto). It was a warm day, a bit confusing, and there were many, many more dogs registered for the Parade than last year (550 dogs in last year’s Parade, Belle was 1432 and we were not at the end of the line). There were a surprising amount of lobster dogs this afternoon of all shapes and sizes.
The highlight was all of the wonderful dogs and the creativity of their owners in terms of costuming. The lowlight was me stepping in dog barf that flowed over my flipflop on to my foot at the very end of the parade, which caused a bit of shreaking and much laughter on my part. Last year, Scruffy, Belle, and I watched from the sidelines, and this year it was good fun to walk in the Parade. Big thanks to Justin Rudd and the Haute Dog folks for putting together such a fun event.

Today, I met up with my mom, we had brunch at the Harbor House Cafe, went to CompUSA for Xmas shopping (geek shopping!), to Wild Oats, and then took the dogs for a walk in two different parks.
Both parks were in the Jet Blue flight path and I kept trying to get a photo of a blue bottom of a jet plane with the blue sky in the background. In park #2, we encountered many, many, many waterfowl and lots of fouled sidewalk…
