April brings more than showers - it brings fun!

Time has gone by so fast!  Tomorrow is the first game for my favorite baseball team!  That definitely means Spring!  Even though there's still some snow in Minnesota, that won't stop us from playing baseball!
Boomer! likes to play frisbee and chase.  He chases me.  I can zig and zag so I can confuse him because he is big and only goes straight.  It is fun!

Mommy and Daddy have some big days ahead in April.  An event for Donate Life Month called "Gift of Life," a book signing, and a visit to New Jersey for "Take Your Children to Work Day."  Plus it's my birthday on April 24th!  I will be 7!  Wow!

Lots going on - and don't forget my new book, too!  We love it!  Bring it on!

On the Road Again!

We have the Rudymobile back!  Along with it came some nasty weather!  UGH!  Boomer! and I will practice in the garage again until it's safer for puppies to be on the road.  That's all right, we'll have fun!  No need to drive unless you have to!

Work on "Rudy's Incredible Kidney Machine" is going well.  We are very excited.   It might be out this summer!  Only 8 more days until my favorite sport starts - BASEBALL!  Only 2 weeks until our home opener!  The snow needs to go away fast or people will be sitting in snow banks!  That would be funny.  That's sports in April - you never know what to expect!  Lots of fun ahead!

Things Are Looking Up

I think things are looking up and spring is here!  The snow in our backyard is melting fast.  We have a stream running along the back because water is draining.  Maybe I should add some green dye to it like the big cities do for St. Patrick's Day.  It's nice to see green rather then the white we've seen for so long!

Chances are good that we'll be getting the Rudymobile back in a couple days.  That will be nice!

The library told us there are so many people wanting to read "What's On My Nose?" that there's a waiting list!  I'm so excited - I'm glad people like my books!  The library just got more copies so the wait should be shorter now, so don't worry if you want to check it out!

Smelling the Shih Tzu

It's going to be sunny and in the 50's for temperature.  That's great for March in Minnesota.  I'm looking forward to meeting the newest neighbor next door.  It's a Shih Tzu.  First they started with Kolby, then added Sheba the German Shepherd and now a third puppy.  I'm excited - he's more my size!  Now the big dogs can run back and forth while the Shih Tzu and I stand in the corner and sniff each other.

We are working on the lay out for my next book, "Rudy's Incredible Kidney Machine."  I'm very excited about that, too!  We're having fun.  Mommy worked on an introduction for one of her events.  They wanted to see a preview of it.  It brought back memories of her college days and her first official speech.

When it was Mommy's turn to talk, someone walked her up to the front of the class.  She started her speech, but after two sentences the instructor politely interrupted her.  He quietly said, "Stacy your facing the wall, we're to your right."  After a little giggling, Mommy turned to her right and started her speech over.  Of course she added, "How's that for an ice breaker?"  Everyone laughed.

It calmed Mommy right down and since then she's learned to ask the audience a few questions to determine where they are so she's facing the right way.  Easy solution!  She's been sailing ever since!  I think Mommy is funny!  So is Daddy.  I think that's where Boomer! and I get our senses of humor.

When Life isn't Fair, You Need a Dancing Poodle

I didn't know whether to tell this or not, but I figured a lot of you would notice soon.  The last few days haven't been so good.  The Rudymobile is broken, but it can be fixed.  Mommy and Daddy were on their way home from a birthday lunch on Sunday and were the innocent victims of a senseless car accident.  We are all right, but it is very sad.  I won't go ino details, but the accident never should have happened.  Unfortunately, bad things happen to good people and puppies and they must live with it.  I'll try to be extra cute to help brighten the mood.  Maybe I can get Boomer! to chase his tail.  That's good for a laugh.

My First Online Article

I'm going to write a short blog tonight.  I would like to share my article from Patch dot com.  This is written by the woman that came to interview me a few weeks ago.  There are lots of pictures.  Hope you enjoy it!

Follow the Daddy

Well, I don't like to admit it, but I've been a picky eater lately.  This worried Mommy.  Someone suggested getting more exercise might help.  During the winter, I don't get much exercise.  There is so much snow, it's too hard to run very long!

Daddy started walking back and forth really fast and I followed him.  He went all around the yard many times.  I kept following!  We ended up playing "Follow the Leader!"  I like that!  We've done it the last few days.  Guess what?  I'm eating better!

It's "Happy Birthday" weekend.  Mommy's birthday is on Monday... Birthday Bear and Daddy will sing, Boomer! will chase his tail and I will do a dance!  Oh boy!

Have a nice weekend!

Follow the Leader, Rudy

March Is Here

Wow!  February was a busy month.  We had 7 events.  It was soooo fun.  On Monday night Daddy and Mommy talked to a group of grown ups.  They said it was fun meeting lots of new people.  We don't have any events for a while.  But April is busier.

We got the illustrations for our new book.  I'm soooo excited!

I hope the snow melts soon so we can enjoy Spring.  There's a new "Tip of the Month" up on
