Sophisticated Miss M scoffs at Mr B's exuberance
While you may not expect it, given her sophisticated ways, Miss M is actually quite the athlete. Her webbed feet, tight grip, long arms, and hyper-focused eyes make her quite the soccer goalie. E, who has played soccer since his AYSO days, is baffled by her goalie savant skills and lighting-fast reflexes. For the longest time after adopting her, I lamented not naming her Pele.
So we were all excited to join One Tail for the Chicago Fire's first ever Dog Days of Soccer event.
The event included all types of dogs sitting in a bleacher-lined section with a perfect view of the goal.
While E has been to every sporting event in the city (even a Sox game!) we believe the Fire staff has to be the friendliest staff in the city. So, so many people came up to talk to us and make sure we were having a good time and the pups were comfortable.
With his first soccer experience, Mr. B was both amazed and perplexed while watching the action:
While Miss M was sulking, sure she would be substituted in as goalie.
She even protested by choosing to watch the peanut shells on the ground behind her instead of the game.
We all had such a great time, and we're hoping to make it an annual tradition!
