Bye Bye Leaves - Hello Julia Roberts!

The leaves are gone!  Mommy raked them away from the house and fence line (that's called the perimeter).  Daddy raked the middle and put all the leaves into bags.  Boomer! and I helped.  We were good spectators!  I sat on the deck or under a big tree.  Both places gave me a closer view of Daddy and Mommy.  Boomer! ran back and forth, but stayed out of the way most of the time.

Mommy only got lost once.  She had one close call, but used the rake to find her way back.  I kept an eye on her, just in case!

Daddy is very strong; he lifted bags that were bigger than three of me! (Or half a Boomer!)

We received a nice recommendation last week.  It was from Julia Roberts.  She is not the actress, but another very nice woman who has two children with kidney disease.  I included the link in case you would like to read it.

Hope you enjoy, we did!

The Kidney Walk

The Kidney Walk on Saturday was a big success!  Approximately 2,000 people and several puppies raised $275,000.  It was a little cold and windy, but no rain or snow!  I've included a slide show so you can see all the fun!

Boomer! and I finally had our hair cuts.  We look very cute!  They put pink bandannas around our necks.  The company is donating 10 percent of all their haircut money to help fight breast cancer.

Mommy and Daddy both had their yearly check ups this week.  It is important to have a check up every year.  Boomer! and I had our check ups already.

Many leaves cover our back yard.  It's fun to run through them!  It will take a long time to rake them up this weekend.  I think it would be great to leave them there, but Daddy said he needs to collect them.  Maybe somebody else will have fun with the leaves!

It's All Good

Boomer! had his yearly check up this week.  The vets said he looks great, but he could lose a little weight.  He looks good to me, but I think he acts a bit odd.  He has been carrying his Frisbee around like it's his new best friend.  I guess that's what little brothers do.  I wonder if I did that when I was younger?

Daddy and Mommy went to the dentist.  No cavities in this house!

I need a haircut!  I look very cute, but my fur is starting to cover my eyes.  I can still dance though!

The weather has been spectacular, so lots of time to practice our walk!  We are geared up for this Saturday.

Mommy Met a Pirate!

October already!  I can't believe it.  Time sails by when you're having fun.  The weather was beautiful this weekend.  Our leaves are gorgeous!  We had lots of fun with our neighbor friends Hobie and Oscar.

Mommy and Daddy went to Rochester for a Book Fair.  They met a real pirate and took a picture to prove it!

We are getting ready for the big Kidney Walk on October 15th.  We have been walking back and forth in our backyard to get in shape!

Last night we got together with our illustrator Michelle.  We talked about my new book.  It's going to be great!  Coming February/March 2012 - Rudy O'Tooty!

Now Boomer! and I are going to play with our toys from Mommy's BFF from New Jersey.  What a great way to end the day.

Shiver Me Timbers! Rudy
