Please Vote For Dad.

My human Dad loves photography! I love it when Dad takes photos of me. My Dad just found out that one of his very special photos was chosen from over 6000 photos (that is a lot of doggie treats I hear) in the Share the Experience Official Federal Recreation Lands Photography Contest. He is excited to be one of 125 entrants that will now be voted on by the public...YOU! I would love if you go to the Share the Experience website and Vote for Dad's photo once a day, every day through January 31, 2010!   His photo is of Wahclella Falls in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Oregon. It has been appearing on Page 8 on the top right column. Thanks and Tail Wags to all! The photo above is my Dad's, I am proud of him....WOOF.

Let's Celebrate -- Give Away.

Happy January! Mom put my little birthday hat on and I thought it was my birthday, again. Nope, she said we should celebrate my Blog's One Year Anniversary.... a Blogerversary, yippee! To celebrate mom & I are putting together a little goody package to send to the lucky winner. Just leave me a comment sometime this month. To receive another entry into the Big Give Away link to my blog, send others our way and let me know... the more the merrier, I say. Don't forget to let us know your email so mom can handle all the details come Ground Hog Day. Good Luck to all.
Tail Wags too....

My human mom is sad that one of her favorite folk artist/children's book authors, Stephen Huneck, has died. His whimsical paintings, sculptures and woodcut prints of dogs celebrated his love of animals and won him a worldwide fan base, including mom, who would always visit his gallery in awe. We will miss you Stephen....

Getting Ready.

My human mom is getting ready for the real thing! All I can say is she will look really sharp in her new, crisp, red shirt. We have officially become Paws For Tales volunteers for Poudre School District. Did I tell you that the "tailor" stopped by the house to fit me for my Therapy Dog Vest that will be made to fit just me ... I am hoping my tail does not make my butt look big!
Mom heads for training at Dunn Elementary School tomorrow. I think, from what I am hearing is that she will learn the ropes, come home and tell me, then each and every Wednesday we get to have K-3rd graders read to me. I am not aloud to correct them, just listen. I am a very good listener.

2010 Greetings.

My human mom loves spending hours looking through the great archives at the New York Public Library Digital Graphic site, I think it reminds her of her childhood of growing up back east and the fun visits to the huge space. Her and my human dad are not much for New Year's Resolutions.... she is more into lists, and lots of them. But one thing that did sum it up was coming across the NY Times column by Maira Kalman, who is also a fabulous book illustrator :    I will make plans for trips to gardens where I will sit and draw and eat a meringue and savor the moment ....that's it!!! SAVOR THE MOMENT. Our wish to everyone is to Savor all those moments in 2010, that is what we will be doing here in Colorado.
