The K9 Summit

You've all heard about the G20 summit, right? Well, here in New York, we recently hosted the K9 summit with a host of international DWB representatives.

In the foreground you'll spot that international ballerina, Miss Sophie Brador, just back from the European press tour for Beagadoon, representing our friends to the north in Canada. Sophie and I represented issues of sports and recreation. Stanley of Gooberstan was in from Kansas, on behalf of all dogs rights to be goobs. And Asta, of course, carried on about issues concerning fashion, social events and hospitality.

Sophie showed me some fascinating new tricks from The Great White North—like how to carry two tennis balls at once. She can also bounce the ball herself, thus eliminating the need for a person at the dog run. Now, please remember that I am a happily married dog and a recently expectant father-to-be, but that Sophie is one gorgeous girl. Just look at those dimples!

And those golden amber eyes —Rosie my darling, you own my heart — but Sophie is something very special. Joe Stains (and countless other swains) is one lucky fella.

Sophie's thinking really hard about what crucial points she wants to bring up at the summit, so Asta and I took advantage of the break in the discussion to hit the bar.

Back to the summit - here Sophie and I are determining the best place to stand when waiting for a tennis ball to be thrown.

I had a discussion with one of the many photographers of this historic event, as we wanted to get a formal portrait of all the delegates. 

Okay, everyone look at the camera and smile.....wait a minute....Stanley!......

...Okay, let's try this again...Asta, got your ear up?.....Petey, smile with your eyes... hold on...STANLEY!!!!!

What can I say? He is the ruler of Gooberstan for good reason. Isn't he a handsome devil? 
(He's also part giant.)

Stan and Asta tried to slip away from the pupparazzi butt no luck. 

I was up late telling Mica all the details about the K9 Summit—the strides we'd made in international relations, the breed barriers we'd torn down. I was exhausted!

So we fell asleep holding paws—a true symbol of housepet solidarity.

Martha said...

Hi Petey
We loved your K9 summit - all those dogs from different places coming together to sort out the problems of the canine world!
The formal portrait was great but so many problems to overcome.
How can Asta get both ears to stand upright at the one time?
How to get everyone facing the same way at once.
We are a bit worried that you were quite taken with Sophie - she is very beautiful.
Sure Rosie might have something to say - anyways when are you moving to Scotland - what kind of a marriage is this!
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxx

Daisy said...

You and Mica are very sweet to hold paws. At our house, holding paws always leads to rasslin'!

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

So funny Petey. As you know things have been so busy, we are trying to catch up slowly, but until we are through with cleaning out Mom's, and moving ourselves., It's kinda hit and miss. And we have missed alot of cool stuff!!!
Mom and I are super jelly of you Big Apple gadabouts!!(Scooter is still mia..)
pee ees Mom says to give your mom a big kiss and good hug for us. We still have her in our hearts and prayers.

Tee said...

What a great summit. I bet you not only deliberate on alot of issues but also came to many grand agreements. :)

We love the photos of you canine delegates in 'sitting'. Am certain getting a group photo of all furrily adorable (and very busy) delegates had not been easy at all!

Sophie Brador said...

Petey! It was so great to meet you in person and mom had a blast hanging out with your mom. She says, the only drag about staying at your place in September is that you and your mom won't be there. Big smoochies to Mika. And Bear too. I just got home so I need to go collapse and sleep for a week. Mom is already off to auntie's next door.


Noah the Airedale said...

The K9 summit obviously was a great success. You all got along so well at the run. Wish we could meet up with more DWB maties. You're so lucky Petey.


The Black and Tans. said...

We are sure you would have achieved more in the K9 summit than the hoomans ever achieve in their summits!!!!

Have a grrrrrrrreat weekend.

Molly and Taffy

Eric said...

Glad to hear the K9 Summit went so well- partly due to no canine equivalent of Gordon Brown thank dog. And then Entente Cordial with the kittie, cool!

Guess the house mousie might not be so lucky. Is Mommy charging him NY rate rents for nesting in the YSL boots?

Wiry wags n kissies, Eric xx

the magic sleigh said...

the many Bs said...

wow Petey, that was a fabulous post. we didn't know that you got to meet the dignitaries also.

it seems like Miss Sophie has a lot of dogs who think they are her boyfriends. every dog's blog where we visit thinks that he is her beau. well, we're here to tell you that Bailey thinks that Sophie has a crush on him! that Sophie!

it looks like you dogs had a successful summit. we especially like your last photos with Mica. so sweet.

That Miss Sophie sure is talented. You meet so many famous doggies!


Agatha and Archie said...

We don't know how we missed this post...geesh.....We wish we could have been there to shake up the joint.r...Love A+A

Stanley said...

You, Petey, are a pup of many talents. I have no doubt you could run your own country (and probably will have to after Rosie has the pups)!

Thanks for making me feel so at home in your city, and for taking the hoomans off our paws later that same night. In my opinion the summit was a smashing success! When's the next one?

Goober love,
