I had to pick up my new passport in Rome, so SBG and I made a day of it… with the dogs! The US Embassy is near Villa Borghese, so we found a good parking lot there.
After I picked up my passport, we walked the dogs to several of the usual sites: Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Campi(DOG)lio, the Colosseum, and the Forum. We also snagged a little gelato at a small bar before making our way home.
Here was the most pleasant surprise: the people in Rome were very, very friendly to the dogs. (They found B-Cup especially attractive.) Lots of smiles and stopping to introduce themselves. It was really nice because not all Italians are fond of dogs.
The girls did great (and were totally exhausted), so we’re hoping to do another day trip together soon!
