It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Here's what happens the day after Thanksgiving. We all climb in the car early in the morning, and we head in the "other" direction; not where we usually go, but with the ocean on mommy's side. Mommy and daddy are going to something called a crafts fair, and I'm going to a different hotel, not the Wag. Because I only go there once a year, daddy thought we should take all my vet papers, just in case. So we left the house, and daddy had my folder in his hands and also a lot of other paper that he dumped in the recycle bin.

We drove and drove, and finally got to my hotel. They didn't need my papers, but mommy asked daddy to be sure he still had them, and that's when he realized--he never had them. All my vet records were probably in the dumpster back home! So when we all got back, daddy had to go dumpster diving! ROFBOL!!! Mommy was holding my leash in one hand and a flashlight in the other, and daddy had a long reachy kind of tool, and a lot of stuff had been dumped on top of my stuff during the day, but we found the papers. Silly daddy!!

Today we drove up the regular direction, up to where the wine dogs live. But today we were there to go to the Christmas tree farm and cut down our tree. I get to go off leash and help choose. It's a lot of fun, and I think we got a good one. The people there are really nice. They have lots of animals--turkeys and chickens and goats and pigs. I don't see that every day! From there we went to the apple farm where mommy and daddy always get chili and apple pie and hot cider. I have to be leashed there, but I always meet other dogs and their owners, and the smells there are really different from the ones at home in the city. Mommy shopped fur some more crafts and juices and jams and stuff, and then we came home.

I'm exhausted, which is just as well, because mommy has all the tables and a lot of the floor covered with things coming out of the Christmas closet and things being boxed up to go into the closet until after Christmas. She leaves me my spot on the couch, though, BOL!!!


The calm before...

It's Thanksgiving Eve. I've been around long enough now to know what that means. Today evfurrything is normal. All the furniture is where it belongs. It smells like Home.

But tomorrow it all changes. Tomorrow, I will spend the day at the Wag Hotel. And when I get home, I won't be able to find a place to stretch out and nap. Mommy will open the Christmas closet, and start pulling things out of there. Boxes and boxes of glittery, jingly, dangly stuff! Evfurrything that's sitting on tables and shelves today will go away, and all the stuff from the Christmas closet will go there instead. My favfurite pillows--gone. Replaced by pillows I'm not allowed to drool on. Chairs moved around. And in her office, not a square inch to put a paw without stepping in ribbons and bows and papers and boxes. There will be long hangy things all over the windows and bannisters that I may sniff but not chew. Mommy will spend days and days changing our house into a Christmas house, and even then she won't be satisfied.

Even the music will change. Daddy will open the Christmas music drawer, and from now until Christmas we'll be hearing bells (that make me bark!) and choirs and angel voices, and mommy will sing along all the time.

On the weekends we'll take car trips here and there... Well, I'll try to keep you up to date as events unfold. But for tonight, it's quiet. And evfurrything is in its place. And I can curl up on my blankie on the couch with daddy. And I'm furry furry thankful fur my life and my pawrents and my furever home here. And fur all my Dogster pals!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyfur!

Sometimes, if it wasn't for tags, I'd have no diary entries at all!

I was tagged by my pal Tinkerbelle.
The Question was:

What is your favorite treat?

I'll do ANYTHING for a bit of hot dog!

Now I need to tell 7 things about myself.

1.) I fix breakfast evfurry morning at Billie-Bob's in the P*I*F group.
2.) I also have my own cafe, Hershey's Place, in the Furiends Furever group.
3.) I NEVER get enough to eat. (I might have mentioned that befur. It's a FURRY important fact!)
4.) I like going to the dogter.
5.) I like trying to play tag with other dogs when I'm on leash, but unhook me and I lose interest pretty quick. (What I really like is trying to get mommy tangled in the leashes!)
6.) I don't get people food.
7.) I don't wear clothes, except the fur coat I came with.

I will tag:
Miss Bella
Sir Winston

What's better than having a woofday? Having a woofday on Dogster!! OMD, I heard from so many pals and got so many pressies! I even made new furiends! And we had a furrific pawty in the P*I*F group, eating until we burst (thanks Dino!) and popping balloons! We laughed and laughed!

We had a pawty at Furiends Furever, too. More food (thanks Alexandria, Austin, Doo and Edwina!) and more balloons and pressies, pressies, pressies. I got cards and pawmails and messages in my other groups, too. It all kept mommy busy at the confuser all day, BOL!!

I'd try to list everyfur who made my day so special, but I'm sure I'd leave somefur out and I don't want any feelings hurt. I felt like the King of Dogster all day, and I'll remember it fur a long, long time.

Meanwhile, at my house I was also the King today. Mommy let me off from having a brushing, and we went on a furry furry long walk and she let me stop and sniff whatever I wanted. She gave me Frosty Paws fur lunch--and I NEVER get lunch!

Then when daddy came home from work we all jumped in the car and went to Fort Funston, where I can run around off-leash and sniff gazillions of other dogs. I met another cocker spaniel! That doesn't happen furry often. After that, we went to my doggie store and I got to pick out a new toy! It was a hard choice, but I'm really happy with my new squeaky furry froggy!

So, 4 is starting off pretty promising! Even though Zaidie says I don't look a day over 3 1/2, BOL!!!

An Adventure!

Yesfurday daddy said, "Hershey, we're going on an adventure!" That means, we're going someplace we haven't been before. So mommy and daddy and I all got in the car. We drove with the ocean on daddy's side, up in the direction mommy loves best. When we stopped, we were at a dog park! Not the biggest dog park I've ever seen, but this one had things to play on. Mommy said "agility."

I got to run through things and jump over things and climb up and down things--it was so fun! I don't do this stuff, and mommy and daddy were furry proud of me fur figuring it all out. I don't know...I was just having fun!

After that we kept going on up to where the wine dogs live, and we had a picnic and ran around crunching leaves. BOL!! It was a furry fun day!

Today we didn't do anything.

Blue Angels

OMD! I've been so busy telling my furiends in groups about my weekend, I almost furgot to write about it here!

Not this day (as my furiend Zaidie would say) but three days ago mommy and daddy and I got in the car and drove to the Wharf. There were a lot of other people there, like always, but they weren't walking all over the place. No, they were all standing around on the edges of the piers, looking up. And then I remembered, because we've done this befur. The Blue Angels! I don't think they're real angels, but I don't really know. They aren't white, for one thing. And they are LOUD! They fly up and they fly down and they fly fast and whatever they do, they do it LOUD! OH I LOVE THAT!!!!

And right in the middle, a furry funny thing happened. (You need to know that there are six Blue Angels that fly.) Sometimes the Angels need to fly around and come back, so there is a lull. In one of those lulls, we looked and saw six pelicans flying, in a perfect V-formation, right down over the water. They flew right by us, and evfurryone cheered and cheered!! BOL BOL!!! They were just as good as the Blue Angles! (But not as loud...)

It was a good thing we saw the Angels that day, because the next day it got too cloudy and they didn't fly at all, and the last day, yestfurday, they had to change their program and just fly low. Like the pelicans, BOL!!!
