Wow, am I a bad diarist. I'm averaging one per year!

Floundering on.... Today is that day of ridiculous booms for no reason. I have them trained. Nobody will even try to see fireworks this year. We will hide with me in the bathtub.

It's awfully hot out, but it seems we have an outing scheduled to buy pots for the flowers. Even though it's hot, I will insist on going too. That's how I'm wired.

Everybody stay cool!

Xoxo, Raja


My Book

I am almost finished with the file for my book and soon soon soon I’ll be ending it to my printer! This book is my very first and I have poured my heart and soul into it, posing for photos, helping with research, keeping Mommy calm as she learns so many new Photo Shop and Illustrator skills. And I have my dear teacher Chloe Girl’s Mommy to thank for teaching Mommy her first skills and starting her off. I can’t wait to send her her own copy. Wish I could see Mommy Colette’s face when she opens the package!!


Getting back into my diary again!

Dear Diary,

For months I have been relegating my diary to those gotcha games. I really have been remiss, but I’m changing that right now this minute!

Just keeping my pals in the know… this summer has been a summer of day trips for me to visit local places in neighboring states. I got to the west coast in June and I’m off out west again in September and am so happy to be flying the big blue skies again.

The best thing about this summer is that Mommy found a good work schedule with more clients but shorter sessions so I get to have her pop in and out all day. It’s the best schedule this far because I get to go out in the garden, play, snack with her and even go on a long walk during the daytime. Why didn’t she figure this out sooner?

My Real Visit to Dogster Headquarters

Dear Pals,

Can you believe it?! On Monday August 17, I got to visit Dogster and I met Lori, John, David, Yuko and Paul! Everybody was exactly as I thought they would be… 100% pet loving, relaxed, gracious, and not too hung up about dog toys all over the floor. I loved being there and I loved knowing that Dogster isn’t a virtual place, but a real place, like the capital of a big global country of people and dogs who take hanging out together really seriously. It made me happy also to know that Dogster staff also play on Dogster.

Such a troubled and hung up world of people rushing around making the worst things into things that are so important. But at Dogster, you know, they have their heads on their shoulders. Pups come to work, there are lots of things lying about that squeak and taste good. There are over 700,000 members in Dogster and Catster combined. That’s a big community of diverse people and animals all over the world. So cool! Thank you Lori for helping my pal Anders out and hosting me and helping me meet John, David, Yuko and Paul!

Here are the rules for Shiloh's tag game:
Just answer the three questions (about summer!) with three answers.
After that, tag five pals! *don't forget to pmail the pups you tagged so they'll be reminded to continue the tag game.

1. What are you excited about this summer?
A. Playing outside in the grass and going on nature hikes.
B. My California brother's coming home in June AND July.
C. Taking a trip for Daddy's birthday in August.

2. Where does your mommy/daddy plan to take you to this summer?
A. Mommy and my pal Enzo and his Mommy are taking us to the Landing Restaurant in New Hope for a blogolicious adventure. The Landing loves doggies and it's elegant too!
B. In August Daddy will take us to Toronto.
C. I bet I'll get to go to California in August too! Cross paws!

3. What are the things YOU wanna do this summer but can't?
A. I want to go to Europe, but it's not in the plans for summer
B. I want to avoid our summer canoe trip, but that won't happen. I am slated to get back in that boat and float about. (grrrrr)
C.I want to sit on my own chair inside the pizza restraunt tonight, but that wont happen (but outside yes- in the rain and with the mosquitoes.)

Now to tag three pals: Hmmm... who can I rely upon???
Lenny, Buttercup and Jewels are paw-ing attention to summer. I'm going to tag them! And I'll try Ollie Boo Bear, Dizzy and Kipper. They like summer too!

I had a great time on my trip to the West Coast... I went to Portland, Oregon and stayed just for a short time... long enough to have a little adventure I am going to write about in my travel Dog Blog ( and THEN.... I flew by Alaska Air to LA , CA where I got to meet Auntie Jeannie, Mommy of Abigail ,Willie Mae and Moses. (I did not get to meet them, but next time I hope to remedy that.) Auntie Jeannie took time out of here busy work day to meet us for lunch in the Lazy Dog Cafe in Torrance. She is so sweet and so smart. Willie Mae, Abi and Moses are lucky to have her taking care of them! I had a few bites of her lunch to help her try to finish. Auntie Jeannie is very petite... look how big I look sitting in her lap, BOL BOL!

I'd like to invite my furends to go see my blog at and to play my contest. Just read and click on the tabs... it's very easy (even Mommy can do it). If you are the first to guess the contest correctly, I will send you a useful little prize, I pawmise.

My furend Trixie Mae tagged me and I am pawcited to be playing this cool and fun game! I’m supposed to write 7 things about myself and then go tag 7 furends.

1. I was born on July 14, 1996. What a great day!

2. I am a Brindle and White Boy Shih Tzu. I have pretty much stayed the same colors, just got a touch lighter. (like Trixie Mae)

3. I am definitely a pawticipator and facilitator. Anything you want to do, count me in! Recently I helped our furends play Texas Hold 'Em. I pretended to be a poker chip.

4. I am an extremely picky eater, like Trixie Mae.

5. Same as Trixie Mae, I am not a huge fan of TREATS either, can you imagine?? BOL!!

6. I do LOVE a good Beannie Baby or anything plush to chew on.

7. I LOVE to play catch with my hackey sack. I sit and then, as it flies through the air, I nab it and my humans have to chase me around the dining room table to get it back. They are so s-l-o-w!

Now I have to tag 7 others, oh boy, here we go..... Look out Blossom, Crissy Edweena, Harrison, Lenny, Mato, Spanky and Greg!

I hope every dog and cat in the world and guinea pig, hamster, chinchilla and mouse finds a loving and safe furever home this year. I hope all of you on Dogster prosper and are healthy. I hope all your families see themselves through the tough times and I really hope peace prevails in the world some day. May 2009 bring blessings to us all over the world.
Love, Raja
