Thin Man?

While my dad has been gone, my mom took over the Netflix queue and requested every wire-haired fox terrier movie she could find that we had not seen yet. On Jackson's recommendation, we watched "Dumb Witness" with Hercule Poirot and Monsieur Bob the WFT (two paws up!). We also watched all of the rest of the Thin Man movies (we had only seen the first two). The later ones were not quite as good as the earlier ones, and my mom said the ladies' outfits were not as fun, either. But Asta did some cool tricks.

I have a couple of Thin Man trivia questions if anyone can help me out:

1) Is Asta different in the last two movies? His coloring looks completely different.

2) My mom read or heard somewhere that in one of the Thin Man movies, someone plays in the piano while Asta sings along. We didn't see it in any of the movies! Is this from a different movie?

(Also, we're working on getting some footage of my lovely falsetto on the blog! Coming soon!)

My mom also went to see the movie "Underdog" without me. Even though Underdog was some sort of beagle, and not a WFT, she said it was a very fun movie.

I'm back...!

Hello furry friends!

Thank you for not giving up on me! I'm so sorry to be out of contact. I have a million excuses why I haven't blogged in weeks, but basically it's my mom's fault. She went and broke her laptop at the beginning of August, and she can only use her work computer. And now she has a new job, but she has had to work some for both of the jobs for a few weeks. So she's cranky and tired.

I have no idea what's been going on with all of my friends, because I haven't been able to catch up with reading blogs for WEEKS! I miss everyone and I have to go check out all of the adventures I've been missing.

My dad is coming home next week - hopefully he can fix my mom's computer at home. And hopefully he'll take me running - my mom hasn't in a long time!! She's also been busy practicing her flute because she has three auditions coming up next week. At night, I go over to school in her practice room with her. I get a chewy bone, and she practices. Sometimes I sing along. There's this one song from The Nutcracker that I really like.

Anyway, I'm off to catch up on my summer blog reading! I'll be in touch soon!
