I would like to thank Dogster for choosing me as a diary pick yesterday. I wasn't aware of the honor yesterday because I could not get on the Internet. The modem was shot, and had to be replaced, but a new one is now doing the job, and this dog is back.

I would like to thank my pals for the gifts on my page. I love the multi color star from Charlie, Chloe, and Callie. I should have thanked them for it sooner, but I didn't realize I had a new star until I took a closer look today--thanks for finally wearing your glasses, Mom. I would like to thank Zoe for the steak which, as usual, was delicious! I would like to thank Scarlett Elise, and Anya for the blue ribbon, and also Hershey and Van Winkie for the blue ribbon they sent me too. I am a very lucky dog to have such wonderful pals.

Today I am going to share a link about a beagle named Izzy who was a character in the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes. Okay, Izzy was not in that movie because Izzy has a far more important job. Izzy works at customs making sure that humans don't smuggle in food that could cause problems for U. S. agriculture. Izzy is a very busy dog who has found lots and lots of items that could have cost a great deal of money to farmers. I could do that job too since I seem to have a real talent for sniffing out food, particularly candy. However, I am glad I don't have a job since I like napping and being treated like royalty. Here is the link so you can read more about this very important beagle:

We saw a video clip on the news about that pup...don't remember when it was, though, but I could see how Izzy did the job...cool job...I wonder if Izzy gets the food sniffed for a reward...BOL!

I think Izzy gets a treat, but not the food which seems a waste to me. Maybe some of the "contraband" with bugs in it might have bugs that would continue to live and get here through Izzy's poop.
