Annie found a ball the other day on our walk. So I thought she was going to just put it with her gargantuan pile of toys in the family room. But she went outside with it. When I saw her a few minutes later, I knew just what she did with the ball because she thinks her nose is a shovel.
The other day we were in Cardiff-by-the-Sea and saw this very unusual statue. So I asked a local about it and he said it is named The Magic Carpet Ride, but everyone calls it The Cardiff Kook. Most of the surfing community doesn't like it cause they say it looks like a novice surfer that is about to fall off his board. People often dress him up in all sorts of gear. That day he was in Del Mar Racing garb since it is Racing season.
I want to come back and see the Kook in October - he must look fab in Pink !
Today is National Dog Day. I may be partial since she is my dog, but I think Annie is the Best Dog!. So I asked her what she wanted for Dog Day. She barked she wanted a dog ! I knew what that meant! Of course I served her fave dog with cheese and a side of bacon. After all, the Best Dog deserves the Best Dog!
And whether or not you observe Dog Day, please have a special treat for #FuzzFriday in memory of my brothers - the best boy dogs - Bear and Fuzz!
Today is National Waffle Day. So I thought we should celebrate by making Eggos! I told Annie that she can have an Eggo as a treat, but not eat it all at one sitting.
As the Summer Olympics comes to a close, Annie and I want to congratulate all the athletes from around the world for competing in the Olympic Games. We want to pay a special thanks to the entire USA Olympics team. You have made the last two weeks exciting and inspiring. Congrats to all the gold, silver and bronze medalists as well as all of the USA Olympians. You are our heroes and you make us very proud to be Americans!
We were sent Smart Bones and I thought what a perfect treat for FuzzFriday. Annie barked that she was excited to try a treat that would make her smart! I explained that it was the treat that was smart since it is a healthy alternative to rawhide. She barked back, it would make her smart for eating something healthy! I guess she has a point. But it still will not help her graduate from Princess School.
Today is the 71st anniversary of V-J Day. So we thought we would revisit the fab statue at the San Diego harbor. The sculpture is called Unconditional Surrender by Seward Johnson. It depicts the photograph V–J day in Times Square that showed the joy Americans felt when WWII ended. Annie was perplexed by the giant people until I explained that it was only the sculpture. The real people were not actually 25 feet tall.
Happy V-J Day!
Today is Sugar's 15th Barklay !! She may be 15, but she has more energy than Annie and I combined. Come to think of it, Sugar is the most energetic dog we know! You try keeping up with her! Anyway, let's see how many birthday shouts we can get for our absolutely fab friend Sugar ! We will start with a bark out: Happy Barkday Sugar !
The Olympics are SO exciting. I asked Annie if she could be an Olympian, what sport would she choose. She barked that she would choose the sports that she could play with me! How sweet?! She couldn't make up her mind between beach volleyball, track & field or synchronized swimming!
What kind of Olympian would you like to be?
