WhooooHOOO!! Dogster picked my diary again today! Not only that, but my pals Puff and Lucy are DDPs, too! That's so fun! I don't know the Diary of the Day puppy, but he's so cute I sent him a PPR! Willy is brand new to the world and brand new to Dogster, and mommy thinks he's ALMOST as cute as me.
Now, I'm furry honored of course, but my furst thought was "Oh no! Everyfur will see the photo of me with that donut on my neck! Even pups I don't know!" Furst impressions are important, you know. And then I thought, maybe if a lot of furs will leave a comment and tell my mommy to TAKE THIS THING OFF OF ME, she might cave! So, Thank you Dogster!!!

For a couple of years now, my vet has been saying I would need to have my toofies cleaned "soon." Well, "soon" finally turned into "now," and today was the day. I didn't get any breakfast!!
But it wasn't just my toofies. I've also had a "fatty tumor" fur a couple of years, and the vet said he might as well take that out, too. And mommy felt a few other little bumpies, so those came off. AND, yesfurday my groomer said I yelped when she tried to clean my ears and she found goop in there, so today I also got them flushed. It was quite a day! And did I mention that I didn't get any breakfast??!!
I stayed there all day, and then daddy and mommy came and got me. I'm a little groggy and wobbly, and my feets aren't doing what I tell them. And here's
I got a big din-din, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna furget about the missing breakfast. I'd stage a protest right now, but I'm...kinda...s-l-e-e-e-p-y.... ZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz....

I've been out of town. Almost a week ago, when it was time fur daddy to go bye-bye in the morning--he didn't! Instead, he and mommy started packing things in the car, including my crate and food and brushes! That can mean only one thing: road trip!!
Soon we all jumped in the car and off we went. It was like going up to the wine country, except we kept going and going and going! The road was right by the ocean, all twisty and turny the way daddy likes it. We stopped evfurry now and then fur peeing and leg-stretches. We saw big trees, and big rocks on the beaches, and cliffs, and big doggies mommy called "cows" and "horses." I smelled smells I nevfur smell at home. But I remembered them. We've been up this way befure.
When we finally stopped, we were at the place with the big meadow, where we all sleep togefur in a little tiny house. Daddy lets me run in the meadow off-leash, even though I pick up a bazillion burrs! There are lots of critters around there. I can smell them, and sometimes I see them and bark at them! We stayed at that place fur two nights. During the days, we went hiking and running on the beaches and shopping. I can go into most of the shops at this place. Mommy and daddy like that! It was sunny but not hot, and we were all furry tired at the end of each day!
Finally it was time to pack up the car again and go back home. We went a diffurent way and didn't stop as often because it didn't take as long. But I don't sleep in the car, so when we got home I was one tired cocker spaniel!
The next morning, yesfurday, we got up early again, but this time it was to take me to the Wag Hotel! I was in All Day Play, but to tell you the truth I didn't play all that much. My buddy Max and I mostly just chilled. I slept furry well that night. This morning the same thing happened. Up early and off to the Wag. Today I hung out with a new pal, Jake, a King Charles spaniel. I also grabbed a nap or two! But I still don't feel like I've caught up on my sleep. Daddy says tomorrow he and I are gonna spend the whole day snoring on the couch! Works fur me! BOL!!

Some of you know, I'm the official mascot fur the Ravenswood Winery Tasting Room. It doesn't come with any treats or anything, but I get a lot of lovin' and my picfur taken whenefur we go there, BOL
So today, they were having a big pawty! A 20th Annifursary, whatefur that means. Last time we were there, mommy promised that we'd all come. But mommy's been sick all week, so she wasn't sure she was up to the hour's drive. This morning, she decided it would be good to get some sun, and she had promised after all.
We went to another winery furst, where I was fussed ovfur while mommy and daddy had some wine with bubbles in it. And then we went to Ravenswood. But when we got there it was furry crowded, and they had parking guys who were taking everybody's cars somewhere else to park them. The parking guys said they'd be sure to find a shady spot so I'd be comfy in the car, because this event was No Dogs Allowed.
No way mommy and daddy would EVFUR leave me in a car! Furst of all it's just cruel, and second it's illegal! Mommy was ready to turn around and go home, but daddy told them, "He was invited! He's the mascot!" So the parking guys sent me and daddy up to talk to the people in charge while mommy waited in the car. Daddy talked to one guy, and then another girl, who went to talk to my friend Kristin, who said, "OMD (or something like that), of course HERSHEY can come!" She even walked me and daddy back down to the car and tied a V.I.P. badge around my neck just like mommy and daddy's, and told the parking guys I was A-OKAY!
So then we went right up to the deck and staked out our chairs, and fur the rest of the day I entertained my fans and wagged my tail and begged fur treats and got my picfur taken and mommy even gave me two bites of HER cheese! It was a pawsome day!

As of today, I have been on Dogster fur three whole years!! And mommy furgot!! Furtunately, my old pal Molly reminded us! She always knows, because her fambly joined the day after me! We've been pals furevfur!!
I've made lots and lots of pals ovfur the years, and I love you all SO MUCH! We've laughed and barked and whined togefur, we've seen good times and hard times. Some I've even met in the fur, especially last year at the DCMagic meet-up!
My pal Tiki got me a cool T-shirt fur my annifursary and I wanted to post it on my page but I can't. You can see it in a diamond Tiki sent me, though! It will make you laugh!! I also have a bootiful picfur from the Pawrayer and Pawraise group that my pal Harley made. I can't wait to share that in my photo book!
Which reminds me, I've been wanting to say, I know there is stuff not working quite right since Dogster did the server upgrade. It's pretty frustrating. But the Techno Dogs are working just as hard as they can to get evfurrything fixed as soon as possible! If you're not already in the Upgrade group, you should join so you can talk to them. You can also meet furs from all kinds of groups, and you'll see that whatevfur problem you're having, you're not the only one.
Anywoof, I just want to say on my third annifursary, I think Dogster ROCKS!!!!

Today the sun came out at my house! This is a rare event, and it makes mommy want to go on Big Walks. Today we went to the doggie store! I was a good boy and sat fur the clerk and got two little cookies! Mommy also bought me some treats fur my Kong.
Befure we headed back home we walked ovfur to the Borders store. Mommy is furry sad about it closing. Honestly, I don't care one way or the other. I wasn't allowed in there, and they didn't sell anything fur me to eat anyway. She thought they might let me in, since they're getting rid of evfurrything. When we got there, a bazillion people were there ahead of us. So we didn't even try to go in. I was tired anyway. I made mommy laugh, because on the way TO the doggie store I have to drag her, and on the way BACK she has to drag me! BOL!!!!
I have a new pal. She's a bootiful cocker gurl. Her name is Precious, and she's new to Dogster. She needs more pals! Pawlease make her feel welcome!

Last night daddy started pulling all the Road Trip stuff out of the closet! I could hardly sleep, wondering where we were off to! This morning daddy pulled the car around and put all the bags and stuff in the trunk, and I got strapped into my place in the back seat and off we went!
We drove ovfur the Big Orange Bridge, which usually means the wine country, but instead we headed fur the ocean,and then I remembered! It's the North Beach day! Pretty soon we stopped at the little town where mommy and daddy buy their special breakfast pastries. Then daddy and I sat on a bench and I said Hi to a lot of people while mommy went shopping. Then mommy and I sat on a bench and I said Hi to a lot more people while daddy bought food and drinks fur the beach. And then we were off again!
At last we arrived at the beach! This is one we only go to once a year. (It's where daddy asked mommy to marry him!) It's always a question, what the weather will be like. This year, it was cloudy and then sunny and then cloudy again. It was a little warmer than I like it, but I had plenty of water to drink. Mommy and daddy sat and ate, then tossed different kinds of balls around, then sat again. I'm supposed to be on leash there, so mommy ties a l-o-o-o-o-o-n-g rope on my collar. It's so silly, I nevfur go more than ten feet away from my daddy! BOL!! I mostly spent the day staring at him and waiting fur treats.
Finally we packed evfurrything up again, and daddy took the long winding way home 'cuz he likes to drive those roads. We're all home and salty and sandy and tired! This was a good day! I'm glad mommy said Yes all those years ago!!

My pal Pepper just got back from an adventure in Mendocino! That's a furry dog-furiendly place! We go there evfurry fall. Her diary reminded me that I haven't written anything about my adventure in Carmel, and that was a week ago!
We left furry early on Friday morning and drove down the ocean road, with a couple of stops along the way fur sniffing and treats. We arrived in Carmel around lunch time, and headed straight fur the shops. My pawrents both like to shop, but I can't help them anyplace else in the world. In Carmel I can go evfurrywhere with them! All the shops have water bowls and treat baskets and dog petters! I had a wonderfur time! After din-din (eating with my pawrents at an outdoor Mexican restaurant--I got my kibble), we walked down to the beach to watch the sun go down. We made furiends with three young men from Norway who took my picfur!
The next morning it was foggy and cold, but we went down to the beach anyway. Daddy and I walked from HERE all the way down THERE and all the way back again. I met about a bazillion other dogs, including TWO ZAIDIES!! Their picfurs are in my Photo Book. Mommy tried to follow us, but she's a lot slower, BOL!!!
After that, we went back up into town fur more shopping. Mommy isn't slow about that, BOL!! We went into every, every shop, and I got petted and petted and petted. And THEN the best part of all! They have a restaurant with a whole patio that's just fur doggies and their pawrents! And there's a whole special doggie menu! Daddy helped me order some grilled chicken strips, and they brought me a big bowl of water! OMD, I was in doggie paradise!! (They sell T-shirts in Carmel that say that, but daddy didn't get one because the picfur on it isn't a cocker spaniel! BOL!!)
After that we went back home. I had a wonderfur time in Carmel, but I sure like my couch!!

Let me tell you about my Auntie Myrna. She isn't really my auntie, she works fur my daddy. She also takes care of all the doggies of the other people who work where daddy and mommy work. She stays at their houses and dogsits, or she feeds them and walks them if their pawrents go away. Me, she comes evfurry Wednesday and takes me fur a long walk and gives me treats! I LOVE my Auntie Myrna!!
But today she and mommy told me this would be our last walk because Auntie Myrna is moving away. :0( What will I do without my Auntie Myrna? Mommy and daddy don't do treat-walks. What if I nevfur get another treat in my WHOLE LIFE???
Maybe it was the prospect of my treatless future, or maybe I just wanted to make our last walk a memorable one, but here's what happened. See, I was on THIS side of Auntie Myrna, and the treat bag was on THAT side, and the more I thought about it the more that just seemed wrong. So I made my move! Befure she knew what was happening, I darted around behind her looking fur treats! I was like lightening, so quick! I pulled her right off her feets and made her fall down *BANG!* right on her knees!
I think mommy's mad at me. Auntie Myrna said it wasn't my fault, she should have been paying better attention. But mommy said that's the trouble with me and treat-walks. I think I'm doomed! I hope Auntie Myrna knows I didn't mean to hurt her. :0(
Bye-bye, Auntie Myrna! I wuf you!
