i'm not full of hot air!

hi every bloggie!

You won't believe it. Right next to my frog hunting pond, a hot air balloon festival lifted off this morning. Yep, I was up doing my usual 6am romp and the field was filled with alot of hot air. That is hot air balloons!
It was magnificent!

I even met a fellow canine hot air balloon enthusiast.

Here's the complete slide show if you want to see all the photos. Mom was going picture crazy and there's more to come later. A balloon glow is set for dusk tonight. I suspect we will be there! For other MA dog bloggies, you should check it out. A K9 unit demostration is happening this afternoon too. Hudson Hot Air Balloon Festival Events Now this is hot air worth listening too!

    Hi Debi & Norwood

    Pretty neat. All the air balloons
    Nice way to start the day. Will check out all the pictures.
    Enjoy the day. Love Mom

  2. Holy moly! What bootiful photos!

  3. a gathering of hot air ballons is one of the coolest sights to see, EVER!!! Stumpy, however, would be freaking out over those UFO's. Norwood, you're so brave. Stumpy is looking at the pictures of you sighing...I can almost hear her...she's sounds like..."Norwood, you're my hero..."

  4. Hey Good Looking!!

    I am here, and have lots to catch up on, but Wow, Wow, Wow!! Hot Air Balloons are my favorite. What gorgeous photos!!

    Hugs, kisses and belly rubs, gotta go see what I have missed now.

  5. Hi, Norwood!
    Going to watch all those balloons sure is the best way to start a day!
    Sure it was pawesome!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. Norwood, every time we visit your bloggy, we swear you get even cuter! It's a good thing our mom doesn't live near you...we're pretty sure you would be in danger of being dognapped! You're waaaay cuter than all those balloons!

  7. What a neat way to start the weekend but it probably scared all of your frogs away, didn't it? Didya take a ride, Norwood?
    I liked your being the basket-that made me laugh really hard. You sure do stand out bein's that you are black and white and those balloons are so colorful. But you have a much more colorful personality than all those balloons put together!!
    And I think you'd give 'em a run for their money in the hot air dept. too!!
    Woofs and hot slobbers,
    Chester ;0=)

  8. Those are lovely balloons Norwood, you are very brave being there with them. They must have been noisy when they went up.

    Thanks for your comments on our blog. :-)

    Have a great Sunday.

    Holly & Zac...XX

  9. Wow, that looks so cool Norwood. Did you bark at them? My Mom and Dad like to go to something like this in Michigan, but I don't get to go. I will have to speak to Mom about that.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  13. What a gorgeous morning with all those big balloons! My ma and dad has flied in a balloon in Turkey and loved it - they also started at a ridiculous hour of the morning, but they tell me it was bootiful! I know you must have enjoyed that, and certain that you're enjoying the rest of the day too! Thanks for sharing!
