Mr. Ansel Goes to Topeka

Today was like a movie...and I was the star!

SWMBO had a meeting in Topeka today, for work. One of her colleagues there has been interested and supportive of the whole puppy-raising thing, and, very kindly, went to the extra effort of getting permission for me to come today! Isn't that cool?

We arrived a little early for the meeting, and SWMBO and I were taking a stroll around so that I could do my business. To our delight, we happened upon the downtown Farmers' Market! There were so many people, smells, booths, tents, and things to see...toddlers, business people, and teenagers; people using electric wheelchairs, baby carriages, and grocery carts; buses, trucks, and bikes; squirrels running in the park; talking crosswalks; I could go on!

Here I am at one of the booths where I met some really nice people.

So many people were interested in me, that SWMBO and I were almost late for the meeting even though we arrived 30 minutes early!

We entered the Curtis State Office Building and boy, is that impressive!

I had to navigate this beautiful floor (no problem!) and an elevator with other people on it (that NEVER happens at K-State!).

I did ok in the meeting, but whined a bit on and off...SWMBO couldn't figure out why, especially after she took me out to do my business and I didn't. It wasn't until after the meeting that one of the attendees told SWMBO that she was petting me with her toes under the table, and it seemed like I started to whine when she stopped...well, wouldn't you? She was a VERY nice person, and I liked playing footsie with her!

After the meeting, we walked over to the car, and SWMBO took this picture with the dome behind me...the country dog visits the big city!

  1. Don't you know politicians can get in plenty of trouble playing footsie?! Be careful young intern.
