Wow!  It was a busy Thanksgiving.  We celebrated Thanksgiving twice.  Once at lunch and again at dinner.  It was very delicious and smelled sooooo good!  I like Thanksgiving.  And so does Mommy and Daddy.  I think it's because the house fills up with tasty scents.  Mommy and I especially love that because our noses work better then our eyes.  Boomer was very excited.  He thinks it was his first Thansgiving.  He doesn't remember last year because he was too little.

Today we had a book signing and met lots of fun people. 

Next week Daddy is going to be very busy at work.  I think he works too hard.  He should stay home and take a nap with Boomer and me!

I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing Thanksgiving. 

Happy Thanks giving to all, and to all a good night.  Wait - that's the next holiday.  Oops!  I'm getting ahead of myself.

Time for bed.

New and Improved

Hi Everyone!
I have attached the new and improved version of the Book Release Party Slide Show.  We found out that a couple pictures were fuzzy on the old one, plus it gave us a chance to add a couple of new pictures!  Now Daddy's going to try to figure out how to put a soundtrack on it!  Maybe it will be the Rudy Tooty Song.

Sleepless Night and Dryer Sheets

Last night Mommy had a hard time sleeping.  She just woke up in the middle of the night and that was it, so she decided to fold some laundry.

I know this sounds funny, but one of my favorite toys in the world is a dryer sheet.  I have loved them forever!  George, the man that helped me at birth, told Mommy and Daddy that was the first thing I played with as a tiny puppy.  He laughed when I saw one floating in the air and caught it with my tiny paws.  Then I started wrestling with the dryer sheet!  It was great fun plus it smelled good!

When Mommy was folding clothes, I "found" the dryer sheet in the laundry basket.  I was sneaky and took it into the living room.  Mommy must have heard me because she came into the living room and started laughing.  I guess she could hear me rolling around and pouncing on it.  I still enjoy a good dryer sheet!

A Night to Remember

Wow!  Mommy and Daddy had such a good time at the book release party last night.  They said it was really something special.  The room was full of people.  Lots of them friends and family.  Mommy said it was a little overwhelming because it meant so much to her.  Everyone wore little paw prints and Daddy did a great job reading my story.  Mommy got a little emotional during the talk, but Daddy said she held it together all right.  She said it feels a little different when there's so many people she knows in the crowd.  It's more personal and intimate.  Those are big words for me, but I think I know what she means.  I know I get very excited when I see people I know.  People really enjoyed the gift bags and treats!  Plus we sold quite a few of my books.  There were lots of laughs and fun, everyone had a great time.

A special thank you to everyone who came to our party last night.  You really made it a night to remember.

Thank you.

Snowy Days, Tired Days, and Hope for a Fun Filled Night

Yesterday we got 7 inches of wet slushy snow.  Boomer and I loved running around in it as it fell on our heads.  Mommy and Daddy had a book, craft and bake fair too.  It went from 9 until 3.  That made for a long day - especially since it snowed the whole time!  Mommy and Daddy met many people, bought some treats to eat, plus sold some of my books!  They were very tired when they got home.  Boomer and I were excited to get back in the snow.  They wanted to take a nap, so we compromised and played in the snow.  It's a good thing Mommy is feeling stronger, cause she was able to walk in all of the wet white mess.

Today we prepared for our party tomorrow night.  We are so excited!  The weather should be nice, so lots of people will be there.  Some of Mommy's friends are coming from far away.  She was very happy to get that news.  We have been working on this party for a very long time.  Mommy is a little nervous.  She gets that way before events.  I know when it is over, everyone will sleep well.  It should be lots of fun.

November Eleventh

Today is November 11th - Veteran's Day!  My daddy is a vet.  He has the day off.  Lots of people don't work or go to school today.  November 11th is also the anniversary of the day Mommy went blind.  We don't celebrate it, but we do remember it.  She was 19 when it happened.  (It was caused by diabetes).

Bommer and I are going to the groomer's today!  I really need a haircut - I look like a fuzz ball!  We have fun at the groomers.  We are cute with our new haircuts and trimmed nails.

I would like to say thank you to Daddy and all the other veterans.  Hope to see you Monday, November 15th at my party!  Also check out

Friends and then some

Yesterday while looking out the window I noticed our friend Remmie visiting our friend Bear next door.  I got so excited I started barking and hopping on my back legs.  Boomer! came over and saw Remmie too.  He began chasing his wagging tail and ran in little circles.  Daddy let us outside and all our friends were visiting Bear!  Winnie, Willie, and Remmie!  Boomer! and Remmie ran up and down the fence line together for a long time.

Boomer! has one leg shorter then the other, but it doesn't hurt him.  Mommy has one leg shorter, too.  She goes to Dr. Barb, a chiropractor to help her keep straight otherwise she might start tilting.  Mommy is seeing Dr. Barb this week.

I love it when our friends visit!

Raking Leaves vs. Playing in our backyard

Last week we raked leaves in our backyard.  Mommy raked around the fence line while Daddy did the middle.  I picked up a couple leaves with my mouth, but it tasted bad.  I decided to roll in them - my fur picks up many leaves, just like velcro!  Boomer ran through the leaf piles and wagged his tail from side to side.  I don't know if we helped, but it was fun.

Today we played in our leaf free backyard.  Boomer kept poking me with the frisbee.  I pretended not to care.  When he looked away, I pounced on him then ran away!  I did many fast circles and he couldn't catch me.  I am small so I can take turns faster then Boomer!  I'd let him get close and then take off again.  It was fun!  Boomer gave up so I went over and gave him a kiss on his nose.  Then he did a roll over!  I think he had fun too!

Which was more fun?  Raking leaves or running?  I guess I can't say for sure!  I know Mommy and Daddy laughed a lot both days so maybe it's even.  We sure have lucked out with the nice weather!
