I would like to thank my pal Luna for the St. Patrick's Day hat on my page. I would also like to thank my friend, Raja, for the four leaf clover on my page. As always, it is wonderful to get gifts from my wonderful dogster friends!!!

Today I want to apologize for not having written for several days. My human secretary started something called physical therapy, and she has been neglecting my diary because of it. Evidently, the right knee is "locked" in place and does not want to move. This makes no sense to me because my paws do what I tell them to do. Evidently, the humans do not have control over their paws. Anyway, at least she has to do some of the "exercises" at home so Angel Zoom Smokey and myself have some entertainment. I got myself a bag of TBonz out of the shopping bag and I was eating them while watching. I might add that if the theatres want to do more business at the concession stand, I would suggest they replace the popcorn with TBonz.

I have some sad news to report today. Dorado, one of the dogs who was dropped out of the Iditarod race was found dead. Apparently, Dorado was sleeping in the snow and the wind blew more snow on top of him and suffocated him. I'd like to know why he was sleeping out in the snow. I think a dog that was running in the Iditarod should have had a hotel room rented for him. I bet the humans weren't sleeping out in the snow!!!

That is very sad news--it seems to me the dogs do all the work and they do not appear to be appreciated and cared for very well. Maybe it is time to stop having the race.

I don't keep up that much with the Iditarod, but I do think that the dogs should be better treated since they are the ones doing the real work.
