Airedale Pride

Hey everybody! It's Queer Pride weekend here in Portland, and as I have been known to dabble in some nice fuzzy Male Dale butt on occasion, we thought it made sense to head on over. Mom always goes to Pride events, they're a lot of fun and here in Portland it's dog-friendly!!! So I strapped on my best butch camo bandana (thanks again Stanley) and off we went!

Woo-hoo! SWAG!!!

The event was really busy even though we went early... this is gonna be a FUN day!

Look at the lovely girl Rottie I met! She was an absolute sweetheart, and mom gave her some of my Chez Bogart treats (yes, we've fired up the dehydrator again to see how things go!!!).

And she wanted more... that's a good sign :)

Then they had a pet contest - they had some awards for best costume, gayest dog, best trick...

So of course mom and I had to get up there!!! (that's mom in the black outfit and the red shirt holding me)

I wasn't really in the mood to do any tricks though - I kept wanting to check out some of the folks and doggies in the audience. So even though I'm usually an excellent parlour-trick-provider (mom was shooting for either a give paw or a high five), today was no dice. So I didn't win but it was still awfully cool...

I'm having an awfully good time - everybody here is cool and wants to pet me! Me likey...


With all of this walking around, a boy can get kind of hungry and tired. So it was time to go... On the way out there was a large group of pirates (yes, PIRATES) - we couldn't figure out what they were up to, but the costumes were pretty amazing...

So where should we go? We wandered around a bit and wound up at the Deschutes Brewery in the Pearl, right near mom's work. We've walked past here before but never stopped, and we weren't disappointed. Pizza for mom (thanks for the cheese!) and venison chili for dad, washed down with some good beer. Very pleasant.

This is Bogart Handsome Devil, intrepid reporter, letting my freak flag fly..... reporting from the Pearl. I'll definitely be back next year!!!

Love,

Bogart

Great reporting job there, Bogart. You looked like you had a fun time. I wish dogs were allowed at more stuff like that here. How are you liking Portland? I heard somewhere that it's supposed to be one of the most dog-friendly cities out there.
Woof,
