German Shephard pie and steamed crabs

I know..odd combination..but let me 'splain.
Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro teamed up with Three Dog Bakery to have a 'dog dinner' last week! Basically, you got to take your dogs to have a gourmet dinner. They got a 3 course meal from the Three Dog Bakery while we enjoyed a meal from Copeland's. It was a lot of fun and the weather was amazing. Dana and Cali REALLY want the "pup-ertizer' of biscuits with a yogurt dipping sauce

Amanda, Kenney, Kristen and Stanley await their meal!

And the dogs' main course..German Shephard pie!

DADDY..I WANT THAT PIE (see Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory movie with Johnny Depp..she is Veruca Salt!)

Cali needs a wheelbarrow to leave the restaurant..

DADDY..I am SOO tired!!!!
Then on Saturday we went to the West Point Crab Carnival! Blue fin crabs are only in season a few months out of the year..so the coastal towns tend to milk it for all it is worth. So we drove to the coast for some great steamed crabs and a little greyhound schmoozing.
Lunch!
I made Dana wear a crab hat (Amanda..I found it!)...Jason hates it when I do this..but she likes it (remember the bunny ears at Easter) and she looks awfully cute. You can be in a parade without a hat!
I may have gone a little overboard with the sticker....

While we were waiting for the parade to start, Cali made friends with the cub scouts.

The parade was the same weekend as Dewey Beach's greyhound event..so most everyone was out of town. But those of us left, braved the 95 degree heat for a wonderful parade. It was a big event with a huge parade. I highly recommend everyone going who may be in the area next year!
We have Lulu and Hemingway this weekend but between the crab carnival and a local wine festival..we haven't had many photo sessions. And after walking in the parade, Cali, Lulu and Dana are exhausted. Light weights.

I LOVE THE HAT!! =) I'm so happy that you were able to find one! Like I said, we need to start planning events better...the pups need to put their best feet forward! =) Copeland's was so much fun! I have so much blogging to catch up on!

German sheperd pie and pupertizers. How can they go back to kibble after that? :) Kris and I love dressing the kids up in hats. Only Parker hates it. The greys love showing off.

If Kali does not stop getting cuddled you know that one day she is going to refuse to walk and you will need one of those giant doggie slings for her!
I wish Oz had cool places to go where dogs were totally accepted. Here it is hard enough to find a human cafe that will tolerate a dog sitting at your feet.
Katy and I need to take this issue on!!
