My Missed Adventure

Road trip missed adventure I really enjoy riding around in my stroller with the top open so I can look around. I even liked doing it at BlogPaws as long as there weren’t too many loud noises or a lot of woofies.

On Saturday afternoon, on our way back to the room to rest up before the Nose-to-Nose Awards banquet, I decided it was time to explore the joint on my own.

As we got off the elevator, I jumped out of my stroller. I forgot that mom had me tethered in but it was just enough to flip me around and set my back feet on the floor. That made it just perfect for me to slither out of my harness. The elevator doors were closing so I had to make a mad dash. Rats, or MOUSES, as Nerissa always said. The doors closed just before I got there.

I turned to run in the other direction but the elevators are in a little alcove and mom was blocking my path. At that point, about all I could do was surrender. I probably could’ve slipped past the old girl mom but she was calling me so sweetly I couldn’t refuse her. Besides, I knew we’d be going to the banquet later. She’d have to open my stroller for the red carpet and I’d have another opportunity.

After a nice long nap, mom got a shower and got dressed. While she was getting ready, I bathed myself, too, because, of course, I wanted to look my best.

Mom put my harness on. Then, well, what’s this? She put on another harness over the first one and attached the leash. When she put me in the stroller, she hooked one harness to the tether on one side and the second harness to the tether on the other side! What treachery is this? I told you she is sneaky. I was tethered on both sides so there was no way I could get out of the stroller. That adventure I was counting on was not to be.

Wearing both harnesses - the cause of my missed adventure!

My leopard harness is larger so it does a good job of hiding my plain black harness underneath.

Here’s the photo I posted on Instagram of me and mom on the red carpet in case you didn’t see it.

Road Trip Missed Adventure

Oh, I almost forgot! Since it is Saturday, I’m also joining my friendsย Athena and Marie for Caturday Art. Mom used the fluorescent chalk action in Photoshop. I’m laying on the very comfy bed in our beautiful room at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass.

    I bet you gave your mom a good fright over that one.. I bet she was glad you didn’t make it into the elevator..

  2. LP says:

    Wow Christy! That was awfully gutsy of you with all those big dogs around! Thankfully you came to your senses and came to your Mama when she called you! You both look beautiful on the red carpet ๐Ÿ™‚

    the critters in the cottage xo

  3. Christie, what a story you tell. My mouth was hanging open when you jumped out of your harness and headed for the elevator. I was disappointed you didn’t make it. Your mom sure had your number after that. The whole time in Phoenix was an adventure as far as I’m concerned! You were super.


  4. That was quite an adventure, Christy. We’re so relieved that you went back to your mom, when she called for you.. You look fantastic and we love to take a ride with you in the stroller too…that’s so cute! Your artwork looks great and your picture with your mommy too. Pawkisses for a Happy 4th of July and some Extra for your Birthday ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

  5. Athena says:

    Looks fun! Mum wouldn’t take me somewhere like that though because she’ll be too scared I’ll run away.

    Lovely art:)

    Purrs xx

  6. Ellen Pilch says:

    Good try at the escape- you wouldn’t really want to escape though. Great photos and art. We won’t miss your birthday.

  7. Cathy Keisha says:

    Whoa! An action TW doesn’t have and that’s a nice artistic one too! Too bad you couldn’t bolt at the banquet. You could have made history.

  8. Thank goodness your Mom was able to round you up. That’s too much of an adventure for me. I much prefer staying home and relaxing on the couch safe and sound. Love your artwork! Love, Cody

  9. Whew…I’m glad your mom was able to round you up safely!

  10. Annabelle says:

  11. you had a great adventure in the elevator, but your mom was scared, for sure ! You look so stylish in your leopard dress ! Nice artwork ! Purrs

  12. Anne says:

    Whew. No need for elevator adventures. I’m glad this ended well!

  13. Summer says:

    I got to have an adventure once, a long time ago! My human was bringing our suitcase into the hotel room and I was already out of my carrier… and I just went right out the door and went trotting down the hall! It only took a few moments for my human to fetch me, but she had to follow me around a corner and everything. Now I don’t get let out of my carrier until all our luggage is in the room.

    You looked awesome on the red carpet!

    • Christy Paws says:

      Hi Summer. Wow, that was an adventure for sure. Mom was pretty careful with all the hotel room doors but she never thought I’d try to get out of the stroller. You looked wonderful in all your outfits.

  14. Kitties Blue says:

    Christy, that is the most meowvolous art. Your eyes really pop. We hadn’t heard about what sounds more like an adventure than a missed one to us. Mom says she had not idea you were doubly tethered for the red carpet. Mom Ava is very sneaky. That red carpet photo is really terrific. Both you and your mom look so glamorous. We also enjoyed your film. Hope to see you tomorrow for selfies. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  17. Oh Christy, that musta been something when you got out of your harness and nearly made a break for it! You look great on the Red Carpet…even if you were locked in there pretty tight.

  18. meowmeowmans says:

    Nice artwork, Christy! Sorry you missed out on that adventure … we can only imagine what all the fun things you could have done. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gracie says she missed out on the adventure of eating Zoe’s food, because Dad caught her. Ha ha.

    • Christy Paws says:

      I know, right? So many fun things I probably missed out on. I guess it could have gotten hairy with all those dogs around. Sorry Gracie got foiled eating Zoe’s food.

  19. Sammy says:

    Well you certainly did TRY to have an adventure Christy but it’s probably good that you didn’t……you were safe and sound with your Mom but out wandering the hotel who knows what kind of trouble you could have encountered – like a NOT-FRIENDLY woofie!!! Your Saturday art is beautiful too…………

    Hugs, Sammy

  20. Wow, you were purrific at Blog Paws and am it true your birthday am on the Fourth? Wishing your furry happy weekend. Your photo art looks so beautiful just like you are!

    Purrz from Katie Kitty Too.

    • Christy Paws says:

      Thank you so much for the compliment. We aren’t sure of the exact day I was born but it could be the 4th so that is the day mom chose for me. Happy 4th to you.
