Take Me Out to the Ballgame

On Sunday the foster mom woke me up very early. She was busy making food and packing bags, and I was getting very excited. My tail was wagging non-stop.

We went for a quick car ride, and suddenly we were at Miller Park! My foster mom took me to a Milwaukee Brewers game! We got there early and tailgated in the beautiful spring weather.

The foster mom got me my very own batting helmet.

She even made me my very own hot dog! I kept watch over the grill to make sure she was cooking them just right, and then I got to eat it all by myself.

We met lots of nice people tailgating around us, and I even got to sit in this one-of-a-kind chair. It was really cool, and I wanted one of my own, but I don't think it would fit in my travel case.

After we were stuffed with food, we went into the game and saw all kinds of cool things.

I was on top of the Brewers dugout and right behind home plate while the teams took batting practice. Then, I got to take my picture on a red carpet! It is baseball's opening week, and this was just the 3rd home game for the Brewers. I also learned that this is the 100th anniversary of the song "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." To honor it, I woofed it extra loudly during the 7th inning stretch.

I met some nice little boys who held me while we sat in a giant baseball glove. There is a really nice, new kids area there, and this plush pup wanted to try everything!

I also got my picture taken with the designated driver lady. She couldn't resist a cute guy like myself.

And then, the highlight of my weekend, I got to meet ALL of the famous Racing Sausages!!! First we got to see them race on the field. On Sundays, they do a relay race, and the mini-sausages get to finish the race.

Then, after the race, my mom took me for a walk, and I suddenly saw them! They were huge, and this pup's mouth was watering at the thought of a hot dog that big! I could have chowed on something like that for a month!!!!

They were all very nice to me. The polish sausage was petting me, and the brat gave me the thumbs up! It was so cool, and I felt like the most popular plush pup in the land!!! It was a very cool and very tiring day.
