We got to Stubby's hotel about 10 minutes after he did and immediately dragged him to the beach. And by dragged, I mean his mom carried him. Stubby's an older dude and has been having some back problems lately, so he doesn't exactly cruise around like a 2 year old. But he's super feisty and gets around just fine if you're not hiking half a mile to the beach.
As always, the beach was superfun. Stubby's mom threw a tennis ball for me, Dutch ate some dead fish and Stubby chillaxed in the warm sun. Yes, I said sun. After I-don't-know-how-long, it finally came out. Unless Stubby brought it with him from Illinois?
Our spotted friends Boka + Miley met us on the beach and we all played for awhile. The humans talked, Dutch hung out with Stubby, I chased Miley, and Boka got in trouble for peeing on some angry dude's fish. There was some yelling, so we called it quits and headed for food.
Not just any food. Stubby food.
If you don't know Stubby, he has a thing for Popeyes fried chicken. Amazingly enough, Half Moon Bay (where Stubby is staying), town of 10,000 people has a Popeyes! I was superexcited to take Stubby there. And really superexcited to eat some chicken.
When we got to Popeyes, Stubby was going to wait in the car with his mom while the other human's went inside to get food. But my human said, "No way, you are the famous Stubby. This is California. You're coming into Popeyes."
So, Stubby went into Popeyes (we got stuck in the car) and they all came out with a big bag of Nuggets. Lots and lots of Nuggets. We went to a nearby park for a Popeys Picnic and I tried my best to be a good host. I didn't attack Stubby for getting too close to the Nuggets and offered his human a Nugget-scented napkin.
Our picnic lasted all of about a minute. When you have 2 pugs and 3 Dalmatians, lots and lots of Nuggets don't go very far. But it was cool to hang with Stubby and we all got a bunch to eat. Even Boka the-drooling-vegetarian got to eat Nuggets.
It was superfun to finally meet and hang out with Stubby and his mom. I don't think Stubby's ever had to share his Popeye's with so many empty stomachs, but I think he had fun too.
We're getting together again this Saturday and want to invite everyone to come too. Nuggets will be served!
