A Trip Downtown

One evening this weekend, Liz asked me if I wanted to go out. This is my look that says, “um…YES!!”

So off we went in the car. When we arrived I couldn’t wait to get out!

Finally, after posing for several pictures like this, I was allowed out and we went walking down the street. Liz warned me not to get squished by the trolley, but I wasn’t worried about it:

I haven’t been downtown in a very long time, so I was quite interested to see all the new buildings that are going up everywhere:

I stopped to pose by some new graffiti on the exterior of an art school called the Art Academy of San Diego. Liz used to go paint there. It is a nice studio space and they have classes in all kinds of painting and other kinds of art making. They are also “dog friendly”, although they do not appreciate dogs randomly walking through the sculpture studio, as I found out one day! Oops.

Here we are, nearly to our destination. Petco Park is in the background. Can you tell I am getting a little tired?

When we arrived, I was overjoyed to see my friend Martin:

Liz told me if I waited patiently I would get a special surprise. So, after visiting with Martin and some other bystanders, I waited by the door of the bar (I wasn’t allowed in).

This is the Neighborhood Bar downtown. They have very nice beers, burgers and other food. I have never had any, I’ve just heard through the grapevine… The next thing you know, another french bulldog appeared from around the corner!

I was so happy to see another dog just like me. Liz told me his name is Cassius and she met his mom at the Neighborhood. When Liz & Jon found out she had a frenchie too they decided we had to meet!

Cassius wanted to play but I was a still a little tired from the walk. He is only two and I am eight, so even though I’m still playful, I admit I’m not as exuberant as I once was! So Jon helped us out:

Maybe we’ll meet again at one of the San Diego french bulldog Meetups. I hope so! Then it was back to the car to our next destination. Jon let me sit on his lap so I could see out the window:

A very exciting night out!

    That last post really closed the matter for me: Henri officially has a more exciting social life than I do.

    A lovely post! Great photos. Henri is the best.
