Continuing our adventures in California for Ed’s vacation, we went to a pet store today to play with some dogs. The dogs in pet stores are generally kept in tiny compartments and don’t really get to move around and play much, so all the dogs we looked at were overjoyed at being let out into the open. This particular one, which I believe is a Maltese, decided she wanted to untie Ed’s shoelace, then proceed to attempt to eat Ed’s entire shoe while he was re-tying his laces. After seeing a few other dogs, including a dachshund and a Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix (commonly referred to as a “Pomchi”), we went a few doors down and tried Peruvian food for the first time. I’m not sure if we were either given the wrong menu or if they actually just didn’t really have much of a selection, but we wanted to try as many different items as possible, so we got a family platter that had a lot of different meats and vegetables. After lunch, we stopped by eSports Arena so Ed could meet the all-famous dog, Dave. Dave is a Corgi and acts as the mascot of the eSports Arena headquarters in Santa Ana, California. Although I’ve known about Dave for a long time, this was actually the first time I had met him in-person too. The photo shows Dave about to kiss Karen, while Ed pats Dave on the butt. There happened to have been an Overwatch event at eSports Arena today – Overwatch Contenders, if I remember correctly – so there were some cardboard cut-outs of Overwatch characters. We found one of D.Va, so I took advantage of this photo opportunity and snapped one of Ed and the Korean mech pilot.
