More happenin' Stuff!

Muzzer has asked that I do a brief outline of what we have planned so far for our Soooooper Bowl visitors.

Most of you will be arriving Friday afternoon, and we have planned an opportunity to play golf and relax around our house, until our friend Albert comes to fix dinner for us.

This weekend is also FBR weekend in the Valley of the Sun, and we have many golf courses. My G-papa is the only golfer in the family, so he will be your guide for a quick 9 holes at a local course. Please be sure to let Ruby know if you are planning to bring your clubs on board RubyAire, since they must be secured carefully to prevent damage.

For those who want to relax, we will be filling the dog pool and providing lounges and snacks during the afternoon and early evening. We will also have a dedicated nap space, for those who want to conserve energy for the first round of pawtying!


Saturday starts early for those who will be travelling to the Grand Canyon! We will head north through Flagstaff, stopping in Williams to see the Grand Canyon railroad! We have early reservations for the new observation walk on the south rim of the canyon, leaving in time for a late lunch in Flagstaff on the return trip.

For those who want to see more of the valley, Teka will conduct a shopping trip through Scottsdale, with stops at Gainey Ranch and the Waterfront. Lunch will be "on your own" at the food court at Fashion Square or one of many fine dining establishments in the area.

This is strictly a "bring your own plastic" outing, or you may windowshop if you prefer.

Miss Snickers and Asta are in charge of the doggy spa day at Fiore, also in Scottsdale. This is a great chance of all of us to relax and recharge in a very comfortable atmosphere. Dogs and Bitches are welcome on this outing, though there will be separate shower facilities, all treatment rooms and massage areas can be shared.

We all will end our day with a special catered event at Furio, one of the premier nightclubs in our fine metropolitan area. (and also one where we get a discount, cause E.Beth works for the management company!)

Furio serves fine wine and cocktails in an intimate lounge setting, and they will provide us with a special menu featuring many eatables. They are anxious to learn how to make Pawtinis and Pawgaritas, and have created a special drink for the occasion using WallyMelon.

Because so many doggies reacted enthusiastically to the idea of a Sentimental Journey dance, we have booked a fine swing band and they will play in our private ballroom.

Wow!!! I didn't know this was going to be so much work!
I hope our plans so far meet with your approval. Plans for Sunday later. Please let me know if you will want transportation to religous services at any time during our weekend.

Gussie,

The plans sound Fabuloso! I can't wait to get there!

I was wondering, is it possible to go to the Grand Canyon AND do the spa treatment or do I have to choose between the 2?

Goober love & smooches for all your planning,

Oh man!!
We wish we could go (especially to the valley and the spa)!! But mommy is always so busy and never lets us on the computer...do you think there's a way we could sneak out of our house without going through the computer (if you know what we mean..)?

We can't wait to get there! We're looking forward to the shopping and the spa treatments...not to mention better weather than we have here. Our parents used to live in Phoenix and Mesa and they really miss the Arizona weather.
