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!

Just trying to take a nap

Why can't my people just leave me alone when I'm trying to sleep? My funny sleeping poses are not for their amusement!!

Don't forget to VOTE!

Please make sure your people vote tomorrow if they haven't already! It's a really important election. Make sure they bring a book, some water, and maybe even a chair for the line!

I didn't dress up for Halloween this year, so this is an old picture of me. I liked it because it reminded me of my favorite candidate.

This morning my dad took me to the early-voting poll place. He and my mom already voted back in October. But there was a HUGE line that wrapped around the block outside. He took me around to practice being a therapy dog of sorts - letting the bored and stressed people pet me. :) They liked it a lot! (How could they not?) Tomorrow there are going to be musicians serenading people in the long lines here in town. Maybe if you have a minute tomorrow you could go be a patriotic polling place petting pooch! Just remember to be non-pawtisan.
