Fourth of July 2007 – 2 Parties in one day!

Published July 4th, 2007





Hi, my name is Buddy. I’m a Flatcoated Retriever. It was Fourth of July (America’s Independence Day, which started in 1776) and I was invited to go to two Fourth of July parties as The Official Dog of Supercross. These photos tell the story of my day (and night).



The first set of photos show the extravagant bash thrown at the SX/MX Media Guru’s palatial compound near the beach in Carlsbad, California. There, every Fourth of July, you will see the world famous Terramar Fourth of July Parade, which certainly rivals anything at Mt. Rushmore. Everyone should make at least one pilgrimage to see the Terramar Parade.



Then, I got in my van (yes, I can drive, … although it’s hard to reach the pedals sometimes) and I went about 75 miles over the Bailey estate near Temecula, California to party even more. David and Gina Bailey were excellent hosts, and together with their friends, they know how to party! I mostly hung out with my two best friends while I was there (Jim Beam and Jack Daniels).




Doggie Disclaimer: I’m sorry, but after hanging out with my two best friends I was getting a bit woozy, so my photos of the actual fireworks didn’t turn out very well. However, if you really need to view some fireworks, I recommend putting lots of metal objects in your microwave oven, and you’ll probably get an excellent indoor fireworks show in your kitchen. Please don’t take my advice on that though … I’m just a dog. Consult your owners manual.

Hope you all had a nice Fourth of July 2007. I did!

Ryan Hughes took off his shirt. This disappointed many of the other scrawny-like males there. However, women and children swooned!
