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.


Today I also received another award from my new friends at Country Corgi's.

It's called Top Ten Blogs That Make Me Smile.

Here are the rules:

1. The winner may put the logo on their blog

2.Put a link to the person who sent you the award

3.Nominate 10 blogs

4. Leave a message for your nominees for: Top Ten Blogs that Makes Me Smile

This leaves my with a bit of a problem. I have to break the rules. There are way more than 10 of my friend's blogs that make me smile so I leave this award to all those who feel that my blog makes them smile. If my blog makes you smile please feel free to post this award to your blog.

P.S. Mom said she's sorry for the poor quality pictures. They were from her cell phone.

Busy Few Days

Well, it's been a busy few days here at Casa Diego. First, I flew down to the Malibu cottage to spend a night in LA at the American Idol finale. I'm a big Adam Lambert fan so I was disappointed he didn't win. It was a fun night though. Here is a picture of me arriving at the red carpet.....

Here I am with Fergie and my date Paula. Look at Paula....she can't keep her eyes off me!!

Then, after a long night I had to fly off to Cannes, France to walk the red carpet with my pal Brad and his lady Angelina.

Well, I'm back home now and Mom says I better get back to being just Diego Dog. She thinks being a celebrity is going to my head.

My girl pal Nessa, a beautiful hovawart (that is a dog breed) presented me with this award. When I got this award before I was a new blogger and didn't know I had to follow some rules so now that I know, I'm glad Nessa passed it back to me so I can share my answers with everyone!
The rules state that I should list 7 things I love and then pass it on to seven other blogs we love, so here goes:

7 things I love:

1) My Mom, Dad & brother Rocky.

2) Laying on my Mom's lap. That's about the most favorite thing I do!
3) Barking at the furry things (cats) that live here.

4) My squeakers. They are so much fun to chase when Mom tosses them.
5) My treats.
6) When my Mom is going to bed and says "Bedroom". I bark my fool head off.
7) All my blogging pals. You all are top notch!
I would like to pass this award on to those new bloggers who don't have this award.

My Disney Pals

Since most of you know I am a pretty well known dog, I thought you might like to see what my friends at Disney did.

Yup, that's me with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald. Mom was at a park and saw the plane fly over!

Mail Call

I got a package in the mail today. It was my prize for third place in GSD Adventures photo contest. Thank you Pruett & Daphne!!

Dad helped me open the box and there was a new toy in it for me. It's a real cute dog stuffie with a ball in his mouth. I named him P.D. after Pruett and Daphne.

Here is a video of me playing with P.D.........

After I got P.D. out of the box one of those furry things started looking through the paper in the box. When he found out there was nothing for him he took a swipe at me. LOOK......

A Backyard Kind of Day

Today Rocky & I thought we were going to be alone all day. Mom left early for a doctor's appointment but she was soon back and we were happy to see her. She even came out in the back yard with us. She doesn't usually come down to the yard much because the stairs are too hard on her. We had fun digging holes and running around while Mom took pictures. Hope you like them!!
Here we are on the deck.......

Rocky always keeps a close eye on Mom......

Before Dad mowed the lawn, it was over my head!!

Rocky and I dug a hole.....

Mom's favorite lilac bush is starting to bloom........

Here I am ready to go inside......

I was so tired I could hardly keep my eyes open and I did a big yawn!!

After the Interview

After a wonderful interview with Bark Kent yesterday, the paparazzi kept hounding me for photos. So, I decided to have my pilot get my plane ready and take me to LA.

One of the best things about living on a lake is having a float plane ready at any moment. Here is a photo of me and my pilot shortly after take-off. You can see Lake Washington below. This photo was taken by the co-pilot of an F-16 shortly after taking photos of Airforce One.

Having arrived at my modest Malibu beach cottage........

I phoned my mentor George and invited him and a friend for lunch.

The conversation centered on my interview with Bark. Both George and Brad said they are still waiting for her to interview them. I told them Bark was very busy interviewing the Movers and Shakers that are Dogs That Blog and they may have to wait a long time.

Be sure to visit SuzukisBlog to read my interview.
