First Bar Hopping...

We didn't realize we were making memories,
we just knew we were having fun...

Yesterday Brutus had his final appointment with his vet here in Chicago.  As usual as soon
as he sees his carrier he takes off into hiding.  We have to do all sorts of things to "trick"
him into coming out.  Nothing really works.

Once in the taxi, Brutus is always very quiet.  Arvid is one very careful
person when it comes to handling Brutus.  He refuses to let go of him 
and always wants to carry him.  Brutus does enjoy all this fuss over him.

Once at the vet, Brutus was actually greeted by most of the staff.  Everyone
wanting to see how he was doing and to tell him how
handsome he is.  Both Arvid and I were just smiling and enjoying
all the attention he was getting.  As usual, Brutus checked out everything.

After the vet's visit, Arvid said that it would be really nice to go to 
the Pub and take him.  Said, "the fresh air would do Brutus good"

It was the perfect outing for all three of us.  Brutus enjoyed being out
as much as we do.  Arivid was constantly smiling saying that we 
should do this more often.  Now he says we should take Brutus out with 
us on a few of our outings back home in Florida.  Not sure I agree, but 
for now it was just good to see how much he loved being out and listening 
to all the sounds and seeing all the sights around him...

Yes, the day was perfect after all.  Arvid very happy with Brutus' first 
bar hopping as he calls it.
Remember, the best thing about memories is making them.

Good times come and go, but the memories will last forever.
I want to spend forever making memories of us...
