Dogs in the media

Happy Leap-Year-Day! Today my blog is dedicated to recent features of dogs in the media, showing how PAWSOME we are.

You remember Uno the beagle, the winner of Westminster this year? He has been visiting fans all over, especially in retirement homes.

Shortly after Westminster, there was an auction with beautiful dog art up for sale. We heard it on NPR, and then looked at the pictures online. Lots of terriers in there! Priceless!

There also have been some really nice stories about dogs coming to America from Iraq. Boris and Mama were adopted by a soldier's family after he died in Iraq. He had been taking care of them over there. Nubs is a dog who came to America after being rescued by a Marine. He ran 65 miles through the desert - in a war zone - to find his person after they had to leave him and go to a different base! Amazing.

And who knew that dogs can help with homework, heal broken hearts, and even give snack food advice?

I guess I need to learn how to do handstands to get a job in Hollywood.

My mom is running her 10K tomorrow morning - please send her good thoughts, because she is still coming back from her pulled muscle, and she hasn't run that far yet! I know she can do it. Then she is going to Ohio for the weekend to help her favorite candidate get out the vote. So if you are Buckeye dog, look out - my mom may come knocking on your door! Anyway, she will be gone until Monday, and I don't know the password to get on to her computer, so I will not be back for a few days. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hey, Lenny!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but I've been keeping up to date on your doings.

Tell your mama that there are MAJOR goober smooches waiting for her at the finish line (now THAT should motivate her, don't you think?)!

Let us know how it goes!

Goober love,

Simba said...

wally said...

I hope your mom's 10K went awesome! And she's good peeps, helping to get out the vote.

I'm her favorite candidate, right?

Oh, we're not talking about those Dogs With Blogs polls are we.

Well, bully for her anyway!

Hi Lenny,

I sure hope your mom did great in her big 10K race! With all the training you did with her, I'm sure she did wonderful!! Oh, when I run outside, I don't wear anything on my paws, but mom does put some Growl and Meow Bowser Balm on my paws if it's icy and cold outside. It keeps my paw pads soft and helps keep a barrier between the salt people put on the sidewalk and my paw. Man, does that salt burn!

Your pal,

Pacco de Mongrel said...

did ur mum had a great run?

COL. Sam ASTA-fari Joe H. Pinkerton Peabody, Esq said...

Here's hoping that your mom found success at the run, and in campaigning.

Our mother checked her schedule regarding the symphony tickets, and she has something that night. ;( She still wants to come see your mom and dad perform and will keep an ear out for dates.

Our mother (who has very few friends, mind you) has a pitiful little blog and since she has no friends she has no one to tag for a cool meme. So, she asked us to tag some of our friends. If you feel like playing, please go here:

She's so pitiful. She needs to get out more.
