Just A Quick Post

I thought I'd post to let you know that Mom's been under the weather and is having breathing problems (She has a doctor appointment tomorrow) so Rocky and I haven't had any new adventures to write about.

But.....a funny thing did happen last night that Mom calls a freak accident. We were all sound asleep at about 2 AM. Next thing I know I wake up to Mom screaming and bleeding. From what we could deduce, one of the cats fell off the headboard and landed on Mom's head. Mom had fallen asleep with her glasses on so we don't know if when the cat hit her head if her glasses cut her or if the cat scratched her trying to break his fall. Well, she has a cut across her eyebrow, one on her eyelid and one below her eye. It's starting to turn pretty colors now!!

Mom is Sad Today

Mom, Rocky & I just finished watching the service for Senator Ted Kennedy. My Mom's eyes have been watering for two days. It was a very moving service and when they sang "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" she lost it.



Her family are Boston Irish and she is the only one in her family to leave Boston. She grew up in the Kennedy Era. My Grandpa was a union official and was involved with politicians. He worked with Senator Kennedy on a couple of occasions.



Mom remembers Grandpa saying that Ted Kennedy would always ask "What can I do for you?". He always said "nothing", except one time he asked the Senator to ask his brother, the President, to send my Auntie Trisha an autographed photo. Sure enough a few days later a package came from the Senator's office with a autographed photo that said "To Pat...very best wishes, Mr. President."



Nearly 50 years later that photo still hangs in Auntie Trisha's house.



Here is a picture of Senator Kennedy taken in the early 1960's. My Grandpa is in the back to the Senator's left.

Alpaca Farm


On Tuesday my Mom and some friends visited an alpaca farm. She brought home some great smells. I wish Rocky and I could have gone and played with those alpacas.


If you want to see her photos from the farm just check out her blog http://eastsideviews.blogspot.com/

Oops I Ate It


Siku Marie tagged me for the Oops I Ate It Award, and I'm supposed to blog about a time when I helped myself to some food that I shouldn't have. The only food I ever "steal" is when Mom is eating and misses her mouth! Mom sits in her recliner to eat and I climb up on the back of the chair and lay in wait. If I see something fall.....it's mine......all mine. I am so quick I don't know if Mom even notices!!


Now here are the rules to this award:
"When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching. If you have never stolen any food, you must have been a really good pup! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their blogs."
So I nominate:
1. Benson & Lily
2. Cloud The Wonder Dog
3. Isabel
4. Norwood
5. Bruschi

They put on two shows last weekend. Mom was the official show photographer, so here for your enjoyment are a few of her photos. Hope you like them!!

Heat Wave

We are in the middle of a heat wave. You know Seattle's reputation of being cold and rainy. Well, today was 110 degrees at our house outside and 96 degrees inside. That is the hottest recorded temperature here EVER!!! All together we are supposed to have at least a full week of 90 degrees or more. Very few people here have AC and you couldn't find one in this city if you tried.

We did get to run through the sprinkler. It was so cool and refreshing. Rocky is sleeping on the flagstone hearth since the stones are cooler than the carpet. I sleep where ever the fan is blowing. Mom is not doing very good. The air quality is bad and she has had breathing problems since she had a pulmonary embolism last year. We have no pictures because all they would be is us laying around like a wet dish rag.

Adios Gidget

Gidget, the famous Taco Bell dog has crossed the rainbow bridge at the age of 15. She did more to popularize the Chihuahua breed and small dogs than any before her. We will miss you Gidget!!

Another modeling job

As some of you know, I am a world famous model. So, today I had a job for my Mom's company To Be Ewe. They had made a prototype of a new dog toy. Here is a picture of me waiting for the photo shoot to start.


Photo shoots are 90% waiting and 10% work. I brought my business manager Rocky to make sure everything went smoothly.



The product is a dog toy shaped like a coffee cup.

We got the money shot and then they tried to take the toy away from me. I really liked this toy so I put my foot down and said I wanted to keep it.

After that, and a bit of wheeling and dealing by my manager, I got to take the prototype home and now it's all mine!!

Back in Seattle

After taking the Disney jet back from Scooby's wedding, my Mom and Dad took Rocky and I for a drive to Camano Island. It's about a 40 mile drive from our Kirkland villa.

Our beaches are pretty rocky and covered with logs that wash down from the mountains. We were at a State Park and not allowed to run on the beach like some of you can do.

We sat down at a picnic table and looked out at the sound. Yup, this is not an ocean. It is Puget Sound. Mom said lots of people (and dogs) don't know that Seattle isn't on the ocean. Here I am looking out at the view.

Mom.....why did you take that picture of me with my tongue out?Rocky enjoyed the view too!!Dad took Rocky down by the water and walked down the beach. I stayed with Mom since she doesn't walk very well.

I can't see Dad & Rocky. I'm getting worried!!

Oh....here they come. Whew!!Don't worry Diego...I kept an eye on Dad just like you kept an eye on Mom. Mom and Dad said we are good dogs!!

Perez Hilton

Who the heck is Perez Hilton? I think he makes a living saying bad things about people. Well, he has gone too far now. I heard he is saying bad things about my pal Fergie. Some of you might remember I met her at the American Idol finals.

He calls his website "Hollywoods Most Hated Website". That Perez is evil and is calling Fergie's friend Wii.I.am bad names for defending her. Well, I am defending her too! I do not use bad words like Perez does. I hope all my Hollywood pals stand up for Fergie and kicks Perez to the curb!!

Bandanna Bonanza

I'm officially a bandit!! My new pal Norwood just added me to his Bandanna Bonanza. Go check it out on his blog http://norwoodunleashed.blogspot.com/.

Norwood lives in Massachusetts which is where my Mom comes from. She said "Norwood" is a town near where she lived. I think it's a great name! I wonder if Norwood talks funny like Mom does. She says things like Cah, Lobsta, Yahd and Flowah.

Fashionista

My Mom says I'm a fashionista. I don't know what that means!! All I know is she made me a new bandanna that fits on my collar. She put it on me and keeps saying I'm so cute. She really likes to embarrass me.

Groundbreaking and Another Award

Recently Mom took me to a groundbreaking at her church. I asked her how someone can break ground. She said that sometimes when humans build a new building they have a show where they shovel dirt before they start building. I told her that was silly and that Rocky and I can go dig a hole there if she wanted us to. She said no. So we went to the show at the place where the new building will be.

Here is are pictures of me sitting on the bench.....


This is a picture of Mom's church. They are building a Parish Center right across from it.....


While we were waiting for the groundbreaking, I met lots of Mom's friends and her priests Father Nagel, Father Steve, and Father Gary.


Here is Father Nagel and friends actually groundbreaking........



I think it would have been a lot faster if I had dug the hole.
