Last Day in Key West

Day 11 - Last Day in Key West
Fishies, Whippets, and the Catman

After an early morning walkie with both mom and dad, then breakfast, we went to the Key West Aquarium, which is dog-friendly.

We saw LOTS of fishies!

I have big scary jaws too


Okay, how many large inanimate fish
do I have to pose next to?

What's in there?

Something is going splish-splash

I'm not sticking my paw in there,
don't you worry

This is a cool place

In the afternoon, we went to Dog Beach where I played with local whippets Cajun & Tooloulou.  Their daddy, Key West Chris is a local musician and he has his own blog called Key West Music and Happenings (humans can have blogs too). 

Trying to keep up with the whippets was fun but exhausting.  Some people go to the Florida Keys and swim with the dolphins.  But a far more rare and gratifying experience is to swim with the whippets!

Rompin' with the whippets at Dog Beach

Later that evening, we watched the sunset from the Westin Sunset Deck bar, and it was the best sunset yet.  

Me and mom at the Sunset Deck

Dad and I hung out in the bar (we did quite a lot of that, didn't we?) while mom went to watch the Catman perform.  She wouldn't let me come with her because she was afraid I would distract the cats.  But she scored us a Catman sticker for the car.  Mom says the Catman is hilarious and his cats are amazing -- she thinks my kittie friends would love him.

The kitty is getting ready to leap

Yes, that blurry thing is actually a CAT
jumping through a flaming hoop

Now the cat is getting ready to leap the other direction

Our trip was coming to an end, but we would have so many wonderful memories of Key West -- 

the good times

the friends we made

and the large inanimate fishes    

Yep, here's another one
