It's happening again. It's never happened at this time of the year, but I know the drill by now. Mommy and daddy are putting their clothes in boxes with wheels. Mommy stopped buying groceries. I saw her packing my food in little plastic baggies today. "Dinner, breakfast, dinner, breakfast, dinner, breakfast, dinner, breakfast, dinner, breakfast, dinner." That can mean only one thing: they're leaving town, and I'm not going with them.

Actually, mommy already told me. They are going on an airplane to a place called Saint Loois Misery, where daddy's pawrents live. And I'm going to the Wag Hotel. I don't know about mommy and daddy, but I'm gonna have a ton of fun!! I love it at the Wag. Evfurrybody knows me there, and they're always happy to see me. And I'll get to play with other doggies all day, evfurry day! Or chill. Whatevfur I want. At home I only get a bully stick once a week, but at the Wag I'll get one evfurry other day! Daddy arranged fur that. And only one brushing, instead of evfurry day. Mommy arranged fur that, BOL!!!

I don't know if I'll be able to come to Dogster. Mommy has a baby confuser she's taking with her, and she says maybe we can come sometimes. How can that be, when we won't be togefur??? I don't know. And, they will have lots of stuff to do. So if it looks like I've disappeared, don't worry. "I'll be back!"

Here's what happens on Mother's Day at my house. Mommy and daddy go to church, and then they go visit mommy's mommy. I can't go, so I go to the Wag fur the day. I play all day, then come home and crash. Happy Mother's Day!

But yesfurday, mommy and I (and daddy, too!) had a furry fun day! We went fur a car ride! And if that wasn't furrific enough, when we got where we were going we found a lot of furry furiendly people there, and some winery dogs. And the people were eating snacks, like cheese and crackers. Best of all, they didn't have plates, just paper napkins, so they dropped a lot of snacks on the floor fur ME!! Mommy and daddy didn't really understand that those floor snacks were mine, but I managed to get a few anyway!

Next we went to the place up on the hill where mommy and I sit in the big wooden chairs outside while daddy goes inside and gets something. I like this place, because there are more furiendly people, and they all like to say hi and pet me.

Last, we went to the ice cream shop! That was fur mommy. I didn't get any ice cream, but mommy and daddy brought treats fur me. I met two furry nice little girl hoomans, and if I would sit and lie down fur them, mommy let them give me treats! I was up and down like a yoyo, BOL!!!

So mommy says, yesfurday was her Mother's Day, because she got to spend it with me and daddy. And today was Gramma's!

D/C Magic

It's been two days, and mommy is finally letting me tell you about the D/C Magic Dogster meet-up. It started with a ride in the car, already one of my favfurite things. We went to the same place we'd been to a week befure, only this time befure we even got out of the car I saw a familiar fur. It was Bonzer! He was bigger than I expected, and I couldn't wait for daddy to park so I could get out and sniff him! He was with his mommy, and I liked her a lot!

On the way from the car to the picnic tables, we saw Reba. I couldn't sniff her, because she's a little shy, but her mommy was real nice, too!

Daddy and mommy and I took a few walks from the car to the picnic tables, and more dogs kept arriving. I met Mickey and Jenny, otherwise known as the Roo Crew. Then Josephine and Jolanda came, and then George and Merry. They're married, but they hadn't actually met until last week. My daddy thought that was furry strange, BOL!!

There were also two stuffy dogs, who are on tour. They are being sent from Dogster to Dogster around the world, and they both just happened to be in San Francisco this week. Lulu is staying at our house, and Fetch came with Josephine and Jolanda! They mostly kept to themselves, but on the way home Lulu told me she had a furry nice time!

After that the dogs came so fast I couldn't keep track! We all had to stay on leash, but daddy was furry nice to let me lead him from butt to butt so I could say hello. I met Satiba and Nala and Tillie and Joey and Sara and Mia and Kitai and Casper! And all their mommies and daddies! My nose and my tail were furry furry busy, I can tell you! I even met mommies who had to leave their furbabies at home, Alex's mom and Abbie's mom and Guido the kitty's mom. They were furry furry nice and good fur extra attention!

And there was much more to sniff than doggie butts! The hoomans all brought truckloads and tables full of FOOD! I sniffed chicken and cheese and fruit and egg rolls ad taquitas! Bonzer's daddy had brought moose! And salmon! He made fires and cooked mooseburgers, and Abbie's mom gave me a little taste of the raw meat! (shhhhhh! Don't tell my pawrents! They never give me human food on purpose!)

The eating and cooking and talktalktalking went on fur quite a while. It was a little warm in the sun, so most of us doggies found spots in the shade to lie down and let the hoomans pet us. I really couldn't settle down, though. I kept seeing someone over THERE I wanted to say Hi to!

Then there was a big commotion, and the next thing I knew the Dogster Dog was there, walking around with Lori form Dogster HQ and her dog Lucy. Now, I had nevfur seen him befure. He's BIG! Taller than mommy, and he walks on his hind legs and he doesn't really smell like a dog. Most of us were pretty suspicious of him, but fur some reason our pawrents all wanted us to stand right next to him while they snap-snap-snapped their camera boxes.

The next thing the hoomans decided to do was get us all together fur a group photo! Boy, was THAT fun! Daddy was holding me up in his arms, so I couldn't play with the bigger dogs, but I had a pretty good view. When a hooman would say Sit! or Look this way!, the doggies would turn around or find a better place. BOLBOLBOL, they really had their hoomans going! But finally all the cameras were going snapsnapsnap and then it was over. After that the Dogster Dog disappeared.

By this time we were getting kinda warm and tired, so the hoomans decided it was a good time to see our tricks, if we had any. Lucy was furst. She can jump straight up in the air fur a treat! Bonzer can jump up, too, to give his daddy a kiss. He really only has to stand up on his hind legs, he's so tall. Josephine can count! Her mommy would hold up her fingers, and Jojo would bark how many. Jolanda was supposed to fetch a shoe, but she wasn't into it, BOL!!!

Then they started giving out prizes and pressies and awards. Merry won an award for coming the farthest, all the way from New York! They called mommy's ticket number twice, so she won a book and I won a bag of treats! Josephine won Most Talented, and I won for Friendliest Pooch!!

After that it was time to clean up and get back in the car to go home. I'm gonna remember this day fur my WHOLE LIFE! I wish all my pals could have been there.

 

Lulu arrived!!

Mommy left me to mind the house in the middle of the day, and while she was gone the mail came. Nothing special, but I barked my head off anyway. It's my job.

Right after she got home, our mail carrier knocked at the door. He nevfur comes twice, but he had found a package in his truck and it was addressed to ME!!! It came from Baci in Pennsylvania! Mommy said, "It's Lulu!" But it smelled like Baci to me.

Now in case you don't know, Lulu is one of two stuffed doggies that are taking tours around the world from Dogster to Dogster. We've been waiting and waiting fur Lulu, because here's an amazing thing: the other dog, Fetch, is also here in San Francisco! We've been hoping that Lulu and Fetch would be able to get togefur at the D/C Magic Dogster Meet-Up picnic. But the picnic is tomorrow, and we had almost given up on Lulu.

BUT SHE'S HERE! If you look over on the right-hand side of my page, you can watch a slideshow of me opening my package. Besides Lulu, Baci was nice enough to send me two keeper toys. Oh, I LOVE them!!!

I have evfurry intention of tearing Lulu into tiny pieces and pulling all her stuffing out, but mommy seems to have other ideas. This is not, apparently, Lulu's last stop. But she's mine fur a little while, and I'm gonna make sure my smell is all ovfur her befur she moves on!

Mommy promises to take pictures tomorrow at D/C Magic so you can see Fetch and Lulu and all the rest of us. AAARRROOOoooOOOOO!!!!

 

Who's chicken?

Today we went fur a ride in the car up to where the winery doggies live. We visited two of the wineries, and then had our picnic in our favfurite place by the viney-plants. It was warm and the grass is still green because of all the late rain, and I met a lot of furry nice doggies.

On the way home we went to the place where the big Dogster Meet-up picnic is gonna be held next Saturday! It's a furry nice place. It has a lot of grass and trees fur sniffing and peeing, and a little park fur playing off-leash, with agility stuff and evfurrything. There are animals there that are not dogs, in a pen where hoomans can pet them. Mommy was taking pictures fur all the famblies that are coming.

When we were going back to the car, I saw some big birds walking around. Not as big as me, but bigger than any bird I evfur saw! Daddy called them "chickens." I didn't like the look of one, and I told her so! "BARKBARKBARK," I said. "BARKBARK!!!" (I was on leash or I might have got in her little feathered face!)

I thought she might have been deaf, because she didn't pay any attention to me at all. She just stood there, and strutted around a little. So I barked another thought. I admit it wasn't furry nice. I guess it was the last straw, because all of a sudden she turned in my direction and screamed at me and got all flappy with her wings!

OMD! I was so startled, I started screaming as if she'd pecked me, even though she was nowhere near close enough! I nevfur saw anything like that in my life, and I backed up QUICK! Mommy said, "Who's chicken now, Hershey?!"

What the heck does that mean???

 

Ut-oh

My furiend Zaidie had a lumpy on him that worried his mommy. But they took him to the vet and it turned out to be just a reaction to a shot he had. It's gone already. YAY!!!

That's not the ut-oh. I have a lumpy, too. I've had it fur a furry furry long time. (A year or so, mommy says.) We're pretty sure it's a ::blushing:: fatty tumor, but now she and daddy and Susan my sitter all think it's gotten bigger. So we're all going to MY vet on Saturday to get it checked out. (Well, not Susan, BOL!!)

Mommy's not too worried, but you know how they are. If you are a pawraying pup, pawlease pawray we get good news like Zaidie! Fanks!

UPDATE 4/20: Mommy just called the vet, and he says my lumpy is a "fatty deposit," even though he says I'm not fat! This kind of thing can't even get infected, so it's nothing to worry about. Thanks fur all your pawrayers and concern!

 

I love my daddy!

Yesfurday I went to the groomer. I don't mind it at all, in fact it's nice to get the fur out of my eyes!

While I was gone, mommy washed and cleaned all my blankies and towels and efurrything I like to sleep and roll around on. She always does that. It makes a lot of work for me to have to start over, but we have this agreement.

But it was such a nice day that when daddy came home, he decided to take me to Fort Fun, where I can run around off-leash! Oh boy, I had fun! It's by the beach, so it's sandy and the wind was blowing and I made a furiend and we played tag! So now I have a BIG head start on getting the house back to Doggy. I even got sand in mommy and daddy's bed!

Mommy just rolls her eyes.

 

My Easter

This morning my pawrents both got up furry early, before the sun was up. Befur even I was up! Daddy fed me and befur I knew it, they were out the door and I was home alone with my Kong. I wasn't real happy.

Finally the sun came up, and pretty soon mommy and daddy came home. They got all dressed up and mommy gave me a brushing and then we all got in the car. Where to? The Wag! Oh boy, All Day Play at the Wag! I had a fun time, and got a good report card:
"Hershey had a great time in All Day Play. He loved running around with the other pups while [take note, pawlease] they all played fetch. [I'm just sayin'!] Hershey also loves to receive pets from the staff. [I sure do!] He is such a good boy!"

When mommy and daddy came to pick me up I was so tired I was just stretched out on the floor. But I perked right up when I saw them! Outside, it was POURING down rain! I got soaked walking from the car to the front door when we got home, and mommy and daddy had to towel me off in their good clothes! HAHAHAHA!!!

I've had my dinner, and now I'm just gonna take a little na........ZZZZzzz.....
