It is Balloon Fiesta time here in Albuquerque. Hundreds of balloons from all over the world and tens of hundreds of bad drivers descend on Albuquerque for two weeks. The balloons are pretty but I don't like them cause when they come in really low they make terrible hissing noise. No amount of barking will make them stop. Saturday was the first day but it was rainy and cold so pilots could decide whether to go or not go. Most of the regular balloons went but the special shapes stayed grounded. This picture was actually from this morning's launching.
Sunday, it was totally rained out and that is why I didn't get to go to the bark park. It was just plain nasty weather. Instead I helped dad in the garden. He was harvesting his french tarragon to make tarragon vinegar (smells bad to me) and digging up his potatoes. I offered to help him dig the potatoes but he declined my offer. This picture is of me doing yard duty.
Dad was also tasked with taking my picture for the DWB calendar. He took a whole bunch with me leaping for treats, etc.
After all that jumping around and getting "animated", I was tired. Dad & Mom sat looking at the pictures on the camera and dad took a couple of me just laying there. Wouldn't you know it- Mom chose a couple of those and sent them off to Opy's mum. The picture she chose is.... well- if you want to see it, you'll have to buy the calendar! (Am I doing the shill correctly Opy?)
