Bummerville and Raffle Oh My!

It's us again...but like we said, we did have one bummer side trip last Saturday...this is it...

Ok, Ma...Nap time, check...ready for more adventure, check...let's do this!!!
Super cool suspension bridge that only I think 2-3 people are supposed to use at once! Where is it leading Max and I? To the Bayou Bend Garden and Collections...whoo hoo!

Hey Ma...I'm...ah...ummm...not so sure about this bridge!

View from the bridge...now Max was ok with the bridge :) 

But wait....do I have a doggy poop bag attached to my belt loop? Yes, but NO DOGS ALLOWED! Even in the Gardens! I didn't want to take him with me to tour the home...just the gardens but Nope! No dice! What a bummer!!! Well, that's ok...we'll save it for a "Human's only day"...Max was snickering though because guess what the REAL (seriously...real!) name of the home owner was? I don't care if she was born in 1927, what kind of crack must her parents have been smoking?!...her name was Ima Hogg!!! Ok, we can't be mad about the no dogs rule with a name like that!! :) Supposedly she was named after the heroine of a Civil War poem written by her Uncle, Thomas Elisha Hogg and word is she had a twin named Ura but that's not really true! :) I tried finding the poems to no avail. 


Wonder what else is around here? Well, dog-discrimination...we won't be finding out today :) ...poor Ima!!
Gates we won't be entering today! See where else but here at Max's blog can you get a tour of nothing!?!
 
Bye water and bridge! We aren't welcome here! Pft!!
See this butt...
Max...behave!!!!

and THIS is what I think of their Dog HATER selves!!
Oh, Max...you have to try to understand that not all dogs would be on their best behaviors...

Well, I just can't seriously get too mad Ma...I mean Ima Hogg is what you named your daughter?! I forgive them! :) 
Have a beautiful today and be happy with the name your parents picked...it could always be worse!

Please be sure to head over to Mollie and Alfie's to get your raffle tickets for a great cause..Leo at Savannah's Pawtracks! Leo has been super sick and you can read all about what's been going on at either blog. Mollie is sooo awesome to have put this Raffle together!! Let's show them our support and love by donations, buying raffle tickets or donating toward the Raffle prizes or just sending pawsitive thoughts their way!

  3. too bad all of the fancy gardens here are no dogs too, like the botanical gardens. that name is something there was a doctor P. Enis no joke when I was in college (the P stood for Phillip but he just had P on the door of his office)

    1. OMD! That is hysterical!!! Now why would he even put that on his door...unless he had a great and warped sense of humor about it! :) That's a really good one! Love it!

  4. It is unconscionable they don't allow dogs! Lately, my parents and I tend to bypass any restrictions of sorts by bringing my pet carrier. If necessary, I can always burrow in there so the family can keep a low profile. (I keep a down low profile as a baseline.)

    1. Ha, my son suggested Max's stroller but now we don't wanna give them our $5, let them eat cake right?!

  5. That IS a bummer! There are a lot of places in England that dogs can't even go around the gardens too. They obviously see all dog owners as irresponsible. Max is much braver than I am when it comes to that bridge.

    1. Max was funny and very unsure of it at first but them he saw he could look over the edge and that was super fun! I could tell the lady there would have really loved to have been able to make an exception but....

  7. Hi Max! Too bad they wouldn't let you in there to explore the grounds - looks like lots of great bushes to sniff and plants to dig up (oops.....I didn't mean that) - but at least you got to walk on that bridge and see the water! Loved the photos....

    1. Sammy, I just don't know what's up with these humans?! They probably discriminate against Kittys too!

  8. Hey Max what a bummer you couldn't go in. Trust me it is like that everywhere here. We should call us No Dog City. At least most of your adventures have been successful. Have a super Saturday.

  12. Bummer that you couldn't get in, Max. Your awesome facial expressions truly showed what you thought about that. You certainly were brave going over that bridge.

  16. Great "almost" tour, Max. I'm surprised they didn't make an exception for you. They must not have been very smart. You got some great pictures, and I know your mom will have fun when she goes back.

    1. Ma says they were probably just jealous of my good looks and didn't want the garden viewers humans distracted by my handsomeness...I tend to agree with Ma!

  19. Max, I am impressed! My sister and I would not have walked over that bridge...I would bet a dog treat on that! You are one brave little fellow. I would have enjoyed somehow getting a dip in that dirty looking brown water ;)

    1. Nah Emma, I don't think you or Katie would want to ever go in that water! It's pretty yucky!

  22. You are very brave to walk over that bridge. Too bad they didn't tell you about no doggies being allowed in the garden before you walked over it.
