If Leopold had a motto it would be “I’m a loner Dottie, a rebel.” Truly.
So we arrived at the pug meetup. (Note to self – next time bring sodas/water for myself because it was a serve yourself alcohol bar.) Leopold looked cute in his Halloween bandana I made earlier that day. Since it was raining in Chicago I opted for a “Seattle-themed” outfit which basically entailed a beanie and my canvas Doc Martin’s. PREPARE FOR BLURRY PHOTOS!
Leopold was interested, but didn’t wander more than five feet away and he kept coming back to ‘check-in’ every thirty seconds. That was fine with me though, because we were the ‘new kids’ in the group. Everyone was very friendly, but I had to approach and start talking with people. Then they were all smiles and full of pug info, questions, and answers.
Leopold primarily wandered around alone. The photo above was a general descriptor for his mood as ‘woe is me here at the pug meet up.” No surprise since this is how I operate in real human life. (It may come as a shock – or not – that I do 85% of the things I do alone so he has only been provided this example). I could tell he was getting unsettled – I felt weird saying this out loud when I noticed him looking agitated, but I know him okay?! I asked him if he wanted to leave and he jumped on my legs, which is out code for “GET THE EFF OUT!” Again – I know Leopold, we’re family.
Till the next pug event!
