We went on a car trip! OMD, I love car trips. But I knew this one was different, because we loaded a lot of Stuff in the car, including my sleeping crate. The last time that happened, we drove a whole day, with the ocean on mommy's side of the car, and then spent a whole week in a new city with beaches and parks and lots of fun stuff. So I was furry furry excited!
This time we drove for about half a day, with the ocean on my daddy's side of the car. When we got to the end, we had a little house to stay in, right by the ocean, with a big bed and a deck and a big yard in front, just for ME.
The furry furst thing we did was go for a long walk, all around the little town, along the cliffs and trails above the ocean. Daddy was furry proud of me and called me "sure-footed" because I wanted to run up and down all the rocks piled up.
The next day we took two more long walks. One was in a place where there were a lot of gardens and trees and flowers growing. So many different smells! Then we went to another place and hiked from the edge of the land down into a deep woods. Up and down and this way and that way, and lots of sand and dust and so many smells!!
The next day daddy and I walked around the town and along the ocean again while mommy went shopping. Mommy LOVES to go shopping. And then we drove home again. I was so tired, I didn't even eat my dinner!
Then yestfurday mommy and daddy took me to the Wag Hotel for all-day play. All-day play??!! Were they kidding?? But, once I got there, I did play most of the time.
Today daddy and I mostly napped on the couch.
I think vacations are furrific!

OMD, I've been named Royal Dog of the Month at PD&PC! What an honor! I haven't even been in that group furry long, but they sure are a friendly pack and they really know how to have fun!
I wonder if being a Prince means I can issue decrees...?

I don't know what it is about those yarn coasters, I just HAFTA have them in my mouth! Tonight I pulled the one off the coffee table again, but something went very wrong. See, for some reason mommy and daddy try to anchor them down with glasses and mugs and cans full of stuff they're drinking. This one had a can of soda on it, almost full. I was stealthy, I was quick, I made my move and it was a thing of beauty. I grabbed that coaster and was about to make my getaway, when the next thing I knew mommy and daddy were yelling at me *HERSHEY, NO!!* and the can was flying through the air and I was so startled I dropped the coaster without even getting a treat for it!
The soda is a lot darker than the carpet.
I think it looks kinda nice.
Mommy disagrees. She says I'm bad to the bone.
I'll probably never be within reach of one of those coasters again.

I had better bring this diary up to date before I forget what I've been doing this week! Way back on Sunday I went to a pawty celebrating the furst annifursary of the P*I*F group. There were special prezzies and honors for Lexi and Jenna, who started the group. There was also a TON of food, all kinds of meat and fish and desserts and snacks, made by Lexi's husband Dino, and after we all ate there was music (Dino is also a DJ) and dancing. If you're not in P*I*F, you should join! We have a lot of fun there, everyfur is furry nice, and I make breakfast evfurry morning at Billie-Bob's Fambly Meeting Place.
Speaking of Billie-Bob's, more and more furs are coming in all the time! This week has been furry busy, and you've never seen so much hugging and licking and sniffing! A new member named Oreo has been bringing in sweet treats and we're all just pigging out!
I've been busy at my own place, too, Hershey's Place at Furiends Furever. We don't have as many furs stopping by, at least not yet, but I just got a new espresso machine and if I'm there I always make anything anyfur wants to eat. We have big leather furniture to stretch out or curl up on, and a balcony where the kitties like to perch, and a deck outside with a spectacular view. There's also a huge stone fireplace that'll be furry nice in the winter.
Two nights ago my pawrents went out and left me with my pupsitter, Susan. I love Susan! When she comes I have to spin around in circles I'm so excited! And sometimes she shares her dinner with me! (That's a secret between the two of us. Mommy wouldn't like it!) But I did a bad thing. I got a coaster off the coffee table, made of yarn, and I wouldn't Drop It. Instead I growled at Susan, real mean. I do that sometimes, it's like I lose my mind. She had to bribe me with a treat to get me to let it go, and then she tattled on me. I'm hardly ever a Bad Doggie. :(
Yestfurday the sun came out, which it hardly ever does here, and now it is H-O-T! My Auntie Myrna came to take me fur a walk today and when I got back I had to drink about five gallons of water! I'll sure be glad to see that fog roll back in, BOL!!!

Today was my furst annifursary on Dogster. It's hard to believe it's only been a year, I've met so many great furiends and joined furrific groups and had so much FUN! I would try to tell you who my best friends are, but I'm sure I'd furget somefur and hurt some feelings. You know who you are, and I love you furry furry much.
There have been happy times--pawties and woofdays and exciting adventures. There have also been sad times, when furiends have been hurt or got sick or went to the Rainbow Bridge. I especially remember Duncan; and Billie-Bob, who had a very long and happy life; and little Katie Lynn, who never saw her furst woofday. Furever in my heart.
Even my mommy has made friends with some other mommies, and that makes her furry happy! She says we spend too much time here, but I think she would live on Dogster if she could!
So thank you Dogster for being here, and thanks to all my wonderfurl furiends, too! Here's to an even better year to come!

Wowf, what a diffurence from yestfurday! I have to say, daddy and Uncle Howie took off again, and left me home alone with mommy. I wasn't too happy, but then mommy got on Dogster and OH MY WOOFNESS!!! So many pawmails! So many PPRs!!
Why? Well, furst we found out that I was named DOTD at the Kit Kat Club! Can you believe it? I mean, I only joined yestfurday. I don't even know my way around there yet! Those are some very furiendly furs, I'm telling you!
Then I found a brand new beachball on my page, that I won in the Find the Starfish game at Fur Frenzy! I'm having a lot of fun with that! *bounce! bounce!*
I also found an ice cream cone, that I won by answering questions about one of the mansions we're touring in the PD&PC group. That was very good, especially since the weather has actually warmed up here today.
Best of all, two of my furiends who live in Scotland have FINALLY joined Dogster! If you're reading this, please send PPRs to Breeze #1021742 and Zephyr #1021744 and make them feel welcome. Tell them Hershey sent you!

I thought this was gonna be a lot funner day than it turned out to be. Daddy left early to go fetch my Uncle Howie (daddy's friend). I waited for hours, but when they came back all they did was drop of a bunch of stuff and then they left again. Left me home with mommy. And mommy spent the whole day in front of her confuser, and all I got was a walk outside when I scratched at the door and this was a VERY BORING DAY. Now it's dark and late and mommy's tired and daddy and Uncle Howie still aren't home. Maybe we'll get to play more tomorrow.
One good thing that happened was I got invited to a new group, the Kit Kat Club. Looks like that's gonna be a lot of fun. And I'm touring Athens, Georgia with the PD&PC group. Today we visited some huge antebellum mansions. So I guess this wasn't a TOTALLY boring day after all!

I missed the pool pawty today at Billie-Bob's in the P*I*F group, but my furiends Sassy and Snuggles fixed me a plate with all kinds of furrific food, so I'm writing wif my mouf full. YUM!
I need to tell you about yesfurday first. Or, last night. I knew someting was up, because mommy changed my collar to the black and orange one that looks like a lot of daddy's shirts. I seemed to remember, that means we're going to...to... What was it?
Oh yeah! The big park where gajillions of people sit around the grass and watch some men play with balls and sticks. To me, it seems like it would be more fun to actually play and not just watch. This is one of those human mysteries that will never be solved.
This is one of the places mommy and daddy go when they leave me at the Wag. But one time a year they're allowed to bring me! Now, if you've never been to this kind of place, I have to tell you: the smells are furrific! Hot dogs and popcorn and peanuts and pizza! But guess what? I wasn't allowed to eat ANY OF IT!! Oh, how I tried! I wiggled and squirmed and stretched and pleaded. But all I got were doggie treats. (Well, I have to say, at least I got way more of those than usual!)
Except for the food part, we had a lot of fun. There were a bazillion other dogs there, and a lot of them were wearing funny costumes. (Anyway, their humans thought they were funny, BOL!! I felt sorry for them.) We got to walk around the grassy part, and then we went up to where people sit to watch stuff. Mostly, I watched for falling food! But it was fun sitting in laps (I switched between mommy and daddy) and sniffing the other furs and sometimes jumping up and down with daddy. When it was time to go home, he was very happy and I was very tired!
Today mommy and daddy left me to watch the house for a couple of hours (they do this once a week), and when they came back we all got in the car! You know I love that!! This time we went to where the grapes grow, the place mommy calls the "whine country." (Another mystery.) Guess what! That's where the sun has been living! We haven't seen it at our house for weeks, but up there it was bright and warm. Mommy and daddy got some food and I was a pretty good boy about not jumping up and begging. In situations like that I think (I'm not done testing this out) that when I go Down it's a good thing and I get a treat. But if I put my paws on a person or a table I get a mean face and a "No!" The only thing I don't understand yet is why I should stay down when the really good food is up there on the table.
We spent the whole day there, going to this place and that, until it was time to come home. So the pawty was long over at Billie-Bob's, and I'll have to wait for another time to sail me pirate ship. But I had fun anyway! And now it's serious nap time!
