Mystic, CT- Day 1, The Seaport Photos

After the Doggie Parade was over we walked around the Seaport for a while.  These are some of the photos I snapped of various things around the port.  Enjoy!

That’s it for today.  There will be more tomorrow, the camera is all charged and ready to go.

Mystic, CT- Day 1, The Dog Photos

Well, after battling some of the worst traffic I’ve seen in all the years I’ve lived in Boston, we made it to Mystic in time to quite literally join in the end of the parade.  We were the Dachshunds bringing up the rear and we were proud in our Red Sox regalia.  Too bad one of the judges was a Yankee fan.  Anyway, we got lots of cheers and clapping and people took our pictures as we walked.  The dogs got LOTS of attention and more head pats and neck scritches than they may have ever had in their lives.

Anyway, here are some photos.  I took a LOT of them but I won’t post them all here so as not to kill you all with dog pictures.

Doggies!

A few weekends ago we took Thumbelina and Rerun to the Dachshund playgroup in Brookline.  Here are some photos of them running around and making friends.  Enjoy!

We’ve got more pictures of the little beasts kids than we know what to do with, so I’m sure there will be more photos up soon.
