Spring? Not so much...

Happy Furbaby Day! I'd say Happy 1st Day of Spring, but it still doesn't feel like spring around here... its cold & rainy today. pptthh to that.


The Carrie show last night was awesome! We had a 5 minute count down before she rose up from beneath the stage...

Carrie sounds just as amazing live as she is recorded... and she may have broken a nail and a string, but she's trying her hand at some guitar strumming now too!

The girl rocked the mile high stilettos too! I have no idea how she walked, ran and danced around stage in those things... I couldn't even make it across my living room floor without looking like the clumsy clutz that I am breaking my neck...

We had great seats, even though the camera phone pics don't show that (I took most of my pics off the big screen for a more close up effect). The girl in front of me had a camera phone that managed to zoom in completely on Carrie for some awesome pictures. I thought my phone was pretty up to date (its a
Chocolate) with a 1.3 mega pixel camera built in, but damn, I'm once again behind the technology every teenager is toting these days! Anyway, it wasn't until Carrie came back on stage for her encore, announcing that she was going to do one of her all time favorite songs and broke in to an awesome version of Guns 'n Roses November Rain that went straight in to the rocking cover of their Paradise City that I had the ah-ha moment and remembered that we saw heard Carrie live once before... in Charlotte at The Coca Cola 600 prerace concert (we were on the other side of the track, hence we heard and did not actually see her). She covered Paradise City back then too ... or maybe it was Sweet Child of Mine because I know I've seen her do that too. Either way, it proves my point that she's really a rock chick underneath all that country! (note, borrowing video from YouTube, as some people obviously have those better cell phones than I do too... my sound is crap compared to these)

My only disappointment from the show? I was so hoping she'd have a "The More Boys I Meet... The More I Love My Dog" t-shirt! But no... nothing!! If anyone in Carrie's camp is reading, just think of the marketing potential here people! I'd buy several myself and I'm sure my fellow Dogs on Thursday peeps would be right there behind me!

With that, I'll leave you with the doggy photos. This was Zeus belated birthday olive from Kathy....

Just as I was snapping a photo of Zeus with his present, Sophie (as always, click on their linked names for more new pics!) came out of nowhere and snatched it! Yes, she thinks its for her and its become her new favorite toy this week!

Happy Birthday Zeus! That looks like a fun toy.

Ah Poor Zeus! Happy Birthday to him!!! Glad he got the chance to play with his toy!
If you figure a way to dog to share..let me know..LOL Lady does not share!! Everything is hers :)

Nichole said...

Just an FYI - Zeus' birthday was March 7 ... scroll back for his bday pics. This was just a late gift that arrived last week :)

Kathy R said...

Maybe I should have sent 4 olives! And a bottle of gin or vodka for the martinis!

Your dogs must be very good to share that toy.

Even the Knight agrees that they're missing the boat on Boys...Dogs marketing and merchandise! He wouldn't look at the photos or the video, but merely flips YOU the bird every time I try to share about your concert. (Sweetheart, he is...)

Love the Zeus martini bit at the end. You're so clever!
