as much as he loves pickles, cody bear thought it was time he get away for some grown up dog adventures. naturally he thought it would be ideal to meet up with his travel buddy, checkers. but where to go?

checkers had a suggestion: due to the upcoming 2008 beijing olympics, china was temporarily removing “dog” from the menus. at least that’s what he heard at wordpress. there would never be a safer time to visit….as long as they packed their own food….

souvenirs included: a new jade bangle for cody bear’s p.a., a print from the national museum of china for checkers’ p.a., a year of the dog pendant for cody bear’s p.a., a pair of panda socks for checkers’ p.a. and fortune cookie squeaky toys for scruff, nash and pickles. cody bear and checkers wanted to also mention that they brought a message of peace with them to beijing: please don’t eat dogs and please ease up on tibet and please use safe ingredients in your exported pet foods.

olympic greetins from beijing!

the dogs agreed to skip the synchronized swimming events, neither of them loving water. they snuck into the gymnasium to see the women’s gymnastics, guessing correctly that the girls would go nuts when there were dogs to snuggle. ultimately, track and field was the most fun. snatching the relay baton and running hell-on-paws around the track, rolling on their backs in the long jump pit, and mocking the race walkers.

well, they would mention more, but they both want to go wizz on the great wall before it is time to head home!

If we can not love DOG, then we can never love GOD too.

So Cody Bear… were you weeing on the bridge there? Could be why that is the forbidden city then. Looks like you two had a grand day out!

Wow, that was a fun trip!

Track notes: cody bear got really good at passing the baton, though he had to bend down a bit while running to pass it to me since I am leg-length challenged.

BTW, the race walkers were not happy with our taunting. They chased us but were no match for our fleet feet!

Thanks to cody bear’s p.a. for arranging and financing this wonderful excursion!

That first photo had me laughing out loud! Way to go, Cody, pee-mailing your signature on the anti-dogmeat petition.
