We were invited to the Bow Wow Brunch Cruise with Hornblower Cruise and Events benefiting the Helen Woodward Animal Center and what a Rufftastical time we had. Food, doggies, humans, prizes and even a doggie buffet. Everyday should be like today.

Our friends Laura and Ari from the Helen Woodward Animal Center came with little pups that were looking for their humans to rescue. We heard that 3 of them founds homes shortly after the cruise. I'm sure the other little pup will find a home soon. If you think you're the right human then you should go visit the HWAC and tell 'em Bixby sent you.

Sometimes I like to just sit back and doggie watch. This pooch was not happy at all that a human showed up wearing the same dress as her.

Chopper here is pretty well known in San Diego for riding on his little Harley around town. He's quite the ladies dog.

Tell a dog they're be food and we'll show up with our appetite. Afterall, they say a way to a pooches heart is through their stomach.

We knew this was going to be special when so many pooches showed up for this cruise. Humans and pooches lined up to board this beautiful ship.

We had our very own doggie buffet. All kinds of treats were served and I felt it my responsibility to test them all to make sure they were up to my high standards before allowing all the other pups to eat them. I wasn't immediately sure about a few of them so I had to try them several times.

My human said that his buffet was really yummy too. He was nice enough to sneak me some samples. I offered him some of my treats, but he refused. I don't get. You humans are really picky. I mean I'll eat my food and your food, but you don't seem to like the taste of my food. Oh well, your loss.

This little man totally saw the irony in his costume. He told me he was a little nervous walking around looking like food around all these hungry humans.

This little pups were naturally attracted to my humans charm and after hearing of our big adventure, they were hoping to come along. Unfortunately, we only have room for one, an let's face it, he'd be lost without me.

What a fun way to spend the afternoon. If you come to San Diego you should bring your human's on one of these cruises. Great way to meet others and see the City skyline from the bay.

This land is your land. This land is my land. From California, to the New York Islands. From the Redwood Forests, to the gulf stream waters. This land was made for you and me.

Bixby and her human, Mike, are bicycling across the U.S. They set out on a Yuba cargo bike from Galveston, TX to a family reunion in Texarkana, AR. That trip worked out well, so they drove to Lubec, ME (the easternmost town in the U.S.) and began pedaling down the east coast to Key West, FL and the southernmost point in the U.S. They are currently pedaling along the Gulf Coast headed to California. Be sure to follow them on Facebook.

      Thanks Susan, It really was a blast and thanks for the compliment. My human isn’t too bad either. I appreciate you taking the time to comment and thank you for your feedback. As for Chopper on the Harley, yes, we’re been following them for a while. He really makes an entrance. Pretty sure we do too.
