Watching for Obama



The President and his wife Michelle are in town this weekend and we are all watching for them!






He is staying at the hotel Mom works at and she saw him briefly last night - playing golf and eating dinner. We heard they went to a BBQ place and then for a hike after.




Mom had Pop drop her off at work to avoid all the stop and search events but he came back to drive her home and got to go thru the car search with the dogs. The FBI guys asked Pop if he would mind if they planted a bag of gun powder on the car to give the dogs something to do and keep them alert. He asked if it was a trick and they smiled and said no. So they hid the bag on the car and let the shepherd mix dog find it - he did and got lots of praise for his work! Pop thought it was cool.

There have also been rumbling noises of jets flying overhead all night and day! Lots of excitement here. Happy Caturday to you! We will keep you posted!

How exciting to have Obama in town! I bet you kitties could have found the gun powder too if they'd asked you. Dogs get all the glory. Hrmph.

That's cool about the woofie finding the gun powder. I think my Grete woofie would have been able to find chicken in the car...if it was there!

We expected security would be very tight in Asheville this weekend. Oh I love the Grove Park Inn...we were just up there in October 2009. We've never stayed at the GP but we always visist there when we are in Asheville. I love walking around especially at Christmas.

How exciting! Obama was in vegas a couple of months ago and we had all the hoopla here! No air traffic AT ALL for nearly three hours.

Cats in Trees said...

That is really exciting. And then the FBI wanting to plant explosives in your car. Must be a bizarre experience.

Lucy the Cat said...

Oh, what fun to have spotted the president and to also watch the doggie sniff out the gun powder. If there was catnip in you car, I'm pretty sure I would've found it. Well, sounds like lots of excitement there!

Winston said...

Wow that sounds so exciting, we were waiting for him to come and visit us here in Australia but he was delayed.
The gun powder story was really interesting, we didn't know they did that.
