First thing we saw when we opened the door to go out...

Several trucks with soldiers!
We know they have been patrolling the city but this was the first time we had seen them in our neighborhood.

Finally outside...

Lots of sniffing...

And then.... wind!!

OK! Enough of this mean wind... lets go home!

Back at home and ready for my dinner!

Have a good night

It must have been really windy since it blew your skirt up like that! I'm glad you got your walk!

Miley said...

I love your dress.. it is so pretty Lorenza! :D That wind was jealous of it though! The wind is MEAN! If you go to my post you'll see how the wind was mean to me too when I was a wee pup!
Happy to hear you got your walkie to Lorenza. :)

Cuddles and licks,
Love Miley xxx

Sonic said...

Oh no! That nasty wind blew up your skirt! How embarrassing! Luckily those soldiers weren't around when it happened, because soldiers can get rowdy when wind blows a lady's skirt up.


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

You sure look pretty today, Lorenza.

We think of you and your family every day that we hear about the things happening in your country. Hopefully the soldiers are a good thing and will keep you all safe.

Hugs, the OP Pack and Mom

Dexter said...

That is a little scary to see soldiers. I hope that everything is going to be OK. I bet they were impressed by your outfit.

JacksDad said...

And what were the soldiers looking for? Or were they just headed home?

Stella said...

Your dress is very beautiful, Lorenza! Is that a new one Grandma has made?

I can imagine you got upset over the soldiers outside your house, but I feel sure they are trying to keep things good for you.


Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Oooh. I'm glad that we don't have soldiers in our neighborhood. I hope all is well. I can't believe the wind blew your dress up like that!!! You are so dignified, however, that we couldn't even see your annoyance in the pictures - what grace and poise!

Mayzie said...

Gosh, Lorenza! You haves your own bodyguards for your walkies now! Well, I can see why. Considering you're famous and all.

Wiggles & Wags,

Bocci said...

I agree it's not great to see soldiers patrolling your streets, but the way you looked in that dress made up for it, I hope!

Anonymous said...

So very HAPPY that you had a wonderful walkie Lorenza!

We want you to know that I have my paws crossed and Mom says that you and your family are in her thoughts and prayers.

MadameMoiselle said...

Whats with the soldiers outside your neighbourhood.. Now im scared .. Is everything ok on your end?


Martha said...

Oh Lorenza, you reminded us of that shot of Marilyn Munroe with your dress blowing up in the wind.
We hope those soldiers didn't see - a girl needs her privacy!
We hope things settle down - it is not good to be seeing soldiers!
We are glad you managed to get out and have a good sniff - these things are important to us hounds.

Ellen Whyte said...

Maybe the soldiers have come as an honour guard for you, Lorenza? I'd be careful though; those guys have guns.

Teddy Westlife said...

Love the dress Lorenza. I would freak out if we saw soldiers outside my front door; it's just not something that happens in Australia!

Charlie said...

What a beautiful dress. You be careful on your walkies, Lorenza!

Mr Koda said...

How many dresses do you have, Lorenza? They look expertly tailored, too.
