Lenny goes to Washington Again

Last weekend we took Lenny to the National Arboretum. Let me tell you what is more fun than taking a dog who has just discovered the joy of lifting his leg to a place full of plants he is not supposed to pee upon. Not much.

We got some sandwiches at Java Green on the way. Everything they say about Java Green taking a million years and costing a million dollars is true. However they have a vegan frappuccino with whipped cream.

There is a koi pond at the arboretum and the way they slimily swarm all over each other is kind of creepy.

PS I am writing most of my boring crap about cooking on this new blog with Jennifer: Meats Be Gone. As you can see I will continue to write boring crap about Lenny right here.

Lenny goes to Washington

Yesterday we took Lenny to DC to Vegfest. Sometimes he ducks away when people try to pet him so we are trying to socialize him more. He did very well and did not have a head explosion and met many dogs and let many people pet him and only ducked away a little bit.

Chris O waited in a giant line to buy us a tasty cake from Vegan Treats. We also had some falafels and some oddly gooey soft-serve vanilla ice cream. Lenny had a sample of V-Dog and serious amount of face-licking from Caramello.

Then we took Lenny for a walk on the national mall which was swarming with militant republicans.

Don't Tread On [Lenny's Tail]!

As Lenny was petted by both vegans and republicans in one day, I think we get a gold star for socialization.
