Colonial Williamsburg to meet Liberty, Williamsburg, VA

This morning we went to Colonial Williamsburg to meet Liberty, the new Briard puppy that will become one of the historical interpreters, George Washington's dog.
The VA Chefs Apprentices made home made pumpkin and apple dog biscuits in honor of the day and were passing them out at the Farmer's Market. PG did look back...
But then decided she wasn't interested in the biscuits! He didn't seem too offended. He still had a smile on his face.
After leaving us, the Chefs Apprentice was interviewed by one of the Colonial Williamsburg videographers.
There were some fun things at the Farmer's Market. We didn't buy any painted pumpkins--but we did get some hand made pasta and eggplant parmesan.
Now on to the dog walk and to meet Liberty! We were intercepted by another Colonial Williamsburg interpreter who had 4 greyhounds of her own!
This was the line to register for the walk and to get a Dog of DoG Street bandanna. We thought the line was too long to stand in just to get a bandanna--so we stood in the shade and waited for the walk to start.
Finally Liberty arrives in a horse-drawn carriage! It was so mobbed with people we couldn't get a good photo.
We did get a sun-dappled photo of our friend, George; and his new girl, Daisy.
We followed the carriage halfway down Duke of Gloucester Street but we turned around when we were hot and tired.
PG said, Let's get a drink and go home, Sammy!
And even though we didn't stand in that long line--one of the interpreters gave us two bandannas and a Liberty button!

Wish you were here,
Sammy & PG
