best story ever (involving dogs)

Part of our Southern Road Trip was to Asheville, NC to visit Jay's sister. One night we went to the Rocket Club. The group was me, Jay, Jay's sister, her boyfriend, her roommate (who from here on shall all have clever nicknames), the bartender, and a Weimaraner named Creepy Drifter. Since we were the only patrons of the bar, and the bar was dog-friendly, Sister convinced Boyfriend to go get her and Roommate's dogs, an Rhodesian Ridgeback named Femi, and a Corgi / Beagle mix named Lily. (I've not included an AKC link for Lily, but picture a baying sausage).

Now I'm all for non-purebreed dogs, but Lily was clearly the more uncouth of the group. While the 2 bigger dogs gracefully ran around chasing each other, Lily waddled behind. The big dogs could prance around on the stage, while Lily could barely make it up the stairs.


She was having fun though, and to prove that she was no regular mutt, within 5 minutes of entering the club Lily proceeded to take a massive doggy-poo on the floor. You could see the other dogs turn their noses up at her in disgust. The mess was quickly cleaned up, but the smell lingered. In fact, a coupla other people tried to come into the bar for some drinks, but nobody stuck around long. Would you have?

Just for illustrative purposes, here's a picture of Lily (not taken at the club).


Stinky pile aside, it was a good night. Our own private bar, with dogs. Fun times.

That's a pretty cool bar that it's dog friendly. Not so great though about the smell.

Well the smell wasn't always there... but I have the feeling Lily won't be allowed back.

Des, am I totally missing something in photo 2?

Lily is the white sausage lying on the stairs. Click on it to see her better.

Dogs are awesome. I'm glad there's at least one bar in this world that acknowledges this...
:O)
