Fabulous Chicago Trip (Part 2...Gen and The Foo!)

Yes folks, I got to spend the afternoon with Gen, The Foo and their mom Peta IN PUGSON! Their house was pretty close to our hotel, so mom zipped me over there to visit!

Peta greeted us outside with sweet Fuji (The Foo). Mom felt so sorry for her with her Cone of Shame on her head, but was happy to see that her eyeball seems to be healing very well!

It was so cool to meet my blogger friends and sniff around their house and yard! Here's a closeup of Gen...
HAHAHA! Chillin on a lawn chair!

Mom kept trying to get close ups of Foo's eyeball to show everyone that she's ok!
Foo says "HI...dis is my lampshade!"

We brought Gen and Foo some minty biscuits to nom...

We think Gen REALLY liked them a lot....

Here she is thanking mom for the treats...
Awwwwww! Sweet Gen (even if you DID try to eat your sister!)

The girls TOTALLY spoiled me with presents!!!
OMG my OWN sock monkey!!!! Mom is obsessed with sock monkeys!!!! I named him "Charlie" because all sock monkeys were named Charlie when mom was little.

There was this cool treat bag with a rawhide BASEBALL in it!
I wasn't too sure about this baseball thing until I got home and NOW I carry it everywhere and even chewed it in the big cloud bed last night!!!!!

As if they didn't spoil me enough with the monkey and treat bag....I opened THIS....
Mom was all squealy and excited about this...even though she's a TIGER'S fan first and foremost....she'd DEFINITELY take the sox over the Cubbies (sorry...we're a house divided over here!)

"Oh thank you Auntie Peta! I love it!"

Mom took me back to the hotel for a nap and then later when Daddy got back from his meetings, we met Peta, Honey (John) and Gen HERE for some yummy dinner!

Gino's East is Mom and Dad's FAAAVORITE Chicago pizza place, and they only get it about once a year when they get up there to visit, so they went nuts and ordered a BIG one!

I got a taste and as I was nomming...I heard a choir of angels singing in my head!!!!!

Here is a nice group shot of Mom and I out on the patio at Gino's East with Peta and Gen...awwww!
GREAT dog friendly place! They brought out big water bowls AND plates for us 4 leggers!!!!

Thanks for spending the day with us ladies and for spoiling me with so many goodies!!! We had a great time visiting with you and can't wait to see you again!!!!

Stay tuned for our NEXT business meeting tomorrow!!!!!

Ok, it is now obvious that you had a master plan in your visits..TREATS!! They went all out for you. Gen and the Foo were very generous, and boy you look cute in that jersey. After pizza, those minty treats sure came in handy (can't have garlic breath when meeting friends).
The only problem we have found with baseball rawhides are that they roll up under the couch and all-night whining ensues.

Salinger you look pretty cool in your Sox jersey. It's not as cool as my Cardinals jersey of course but as long as it's not a Cubs jersey we can still be friends!

Your pal,

Yum, my favorite Chicago pizza place is Art Of Pizza. It's located by Wrigley in Lakeview. I suggest checking it out the next time you are in town.
