|Living With Intention||
Last weekend, Sean, Malomar and I went to our second Nationals game for Pups in the Park. Three times a year, the Washington Nationals open the ballpark up to owners and their dogs to come see a game. We went last July and it was blazing hot, so I picked an early season game this year! It wasn't the prettiest day, but our seats were covered so we didn't get rained on. The Pups in the Park event is always a lot of fun. There are vendors and lots of free goodie bags to be had. Malomar came home with lots of new treats, kibbles and dog food! They even have a large area with a real grass turf brought in to serve as the restroom for the pups. I made Mar a little Nationals bandana which earned him some big screen time! When he wasn't posing for the adoring cameramen, Malomar laid down under the seats and slept. Sean and I enjoyed watching all the other dogs, I'd say there was easily 100+ dogs in attendance. It really is a great event and I recommend anyone with a dog in the DC area check it out! Unfortunately at this game, the Nationals fell to the Marlins.
As you probably saw on my Sweet Precious page, Malomar managed to destroy both my Accenture ID card and my government issued CAC (Common Access Card). So I finally got around to going to Fort Meyers today to get my replacement card. After checking with our Army security counterparts in the office, I verified that all I would need was two forms of ID and they would easily replace my CAC. So I wait over an hour going through security checks to get onto base, then wait another hour in the ID office. Finally my number is called and I walk to the woman's desk and before I can even sit down she asks for my police report. Come to find out, without a police report (indicating the card was lost, destroyed or stolen) they can't issue my new card. So over to the MP (Military Police) building I trek, get the police report, head back to the CAC office and finally, after about 4 hours, I walked out with my shiny new CAC.
After getting into the office and relaying my ordeal to my boss, she asked me if I'll be pressing charges against Malomar. After all, he destroyed government property. For now, I'll resist the urge to put my lovebug behind bars.
Update: Refer to the Sweet Precious page. Malomar ate 5 of my Royal Wedding cupcakes that I had made for my officemates. I'm starting to reconsider not pressing charges against his furry behind!
People always ask me how Lincoln and Malomar get along, and I always answer the same way, "They're best friends!" So here is some photo proof from over the weekend. Specifically our arrival back in DC after the weekend in New York. This illustrates their crazy little furry personalities quite well.
Malomar and his ADD can't sit still for very long so he spends most of the car trip looking out the different windows in the back seat.
In protest of coming back to DC, Lincoln refuses to come out of his carrier for the first two hours that we're back.
Of course Malomar wants to help get Lincoln out.
Lincoln finally comes out and the two are exhausted. A sweet little cuddle ensues on the couch.
