Oh Christmas Tree

Happy Birthday to my mom today!

Movie update: only one paw up for "Lenny the Wonder Dog." It's a good kids' movie, but not the most interesting film I've ever seen. And Lenny certainly didn't look enough like me.

On Sunday my mom decided to put up the Christmas tree. My dad had a "gig" so he wasn't home to help her. I had to be her assistant. (My people have been playing a lot of Christmas gigs lately but that is slowing down now. I hope they have earned enough extra cash to give me LOTS of presents!!)

Sorry the pictures are so dark!

I tasted the branches. Not very good.

Our tree is pretty small.

Supervising is hard work and it wore me out.

All of my toys went under the tree. If they think they're fooling me into thinking that those are new presents, NICE TRY!

Now we are in the Christmas spirit!

Lenny the Wonder Dog

I just found out today that there is a movie called LENNY THE WONDER DOG!!!

I put it at the top of my Netflix queue. It's funny, I don't remember anyone videotaping me for a documentary about my life. And the dog on the cover doesn't really look like me. Hmmm....

Have you seen this movie?!?

Happy Birthday Verdi!

My friend Verdi celebrated his 14th birthday at the beach in Brazil! Verdi is quite the ladies' man. He spent his time hanging out with all of his female friends while Gaucho made margaritas. I even braved getting wet and went surfing! You can read all about the party at their blog. It is a very interesting blog because Verdi and Gaucho write in two languages! My mom studied Spanish in high school so sometimes she tries to help me make comments in Spanish. I think they probably don't make much sense.

It was a really fun party - muchas gracias a mi amigo Verdi!

I have started to receive Christmas cards from around the world! I am so excited! I will post about them soon. I sent my international cards right before Thanksgiving, and the USA cards should be going out tomorrow, so they will arrive soon! What a big project. My paws are covered in glue.

Animal Planet here I come

My mom had a busy Saturday. First, she went and got a haircut. She came home kind of unhappy because the hairdresser gave her bangs that she didn't like.

I like them, however! Because all of the cool women on Animal Planet have bangs too. Like Victoria Stilwell of "It's Me or the Dog" and Annemarie Lucas of "Animal Precinct"! I figure this is just the first step to getting ME on Animal Planet as her animal sidekick. (Or her as my human sidekick!)

After her haircut, she went and volunteered at the animal shelter for the first time. I am proud of her. She walked a bunch of dogs and only one pit bull escaped from its kennel. She had to chase it around and she was really embarrassed. I hope she gets the hang of it soon.

Tomorrow I am off to a new place to board - an animal "country club!" Sounds pretty nice. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you get to eat lots of turkey!

St. Louis Dog Museum!

I am so behind on blogging that I haven't posted the pictures from the DOG MUSEUM!

My parents went to St. Loulis for their fifth anniversary, which was way back this summer.

Gussie and his Muzzer gave them some great advice about fun places to go and they had a wonderful time. I got to stay with my lovely lady friend Rosie. Back a while ago on Gus's blog, he posted about the AKC Dog Museum near St. Loulis, and my mom talked my dad into going. This was in exchange for going up in the Arch, which was miserable for my mom because she is very claustrophic and afraid of heights.

My mom loved it! They had tons of wire fox terriers and my dad took pictures of all of them.

My dad liked the pug orchestra.
Thanks for the great suggestions, Gus!
