It was an interesting weekend!! On a positive note Mom and I both ended up winning art work in a free give away!! I have some friends on Facebook who have a Facebook page called The Houndies Stall. They sell donated items, many handmade, to help a dog rescue in England. They were trying to reach 250 likes so they were asking people to share. If you shared you were entered into the free giveaway! Mom won the first week and I won this week!!! The art work I won has an Egyptian theme and my name will be written in Hieroglyphics!! Isis, being a Goddess has her very own Hieroglyph! I can't wait to see it. Mom's is beautiful too. It is a greyhound next to a cherry tree in blossom.
Yesterday mom and dad went to a Star Trek Convention in Boston. Mom had always want to go to one. She has been a big fan all her life. Mom didn't pay extra to meet the stars or get autographs but she did see them all. Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher) Said hi to mom!!! Mom was grabbing on to daddy as she was so excited. She also saw Micheal Dorn (Worf), Brent Spinner (Data) and George Takei (Sulu), Oh and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troy, Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) and Levar Burton (Geordi LaForge) Mom bought a Tribble. It actually squeals and shakes like the real ones. Mom asked my pet sitter, Sara to take my for my mid day walk. Mom even E-mailed her the day before to remind her. She never came!!! When mom and dad came home, the check was still on the center isle! Mom felt sick to her stomach knowing that I had to hold it for over 12 hours!!! Mom was almost in tears!! She let me out right away! Boy did I have to GO!!! I was OK though. Mom is looking for a new sitter. This lady is a friend of dad's. They used to work together. Mom feels bad about that, but my needs have to come first. This is the second time she has forgotten me.
Today was the Whisker Walk. It is another annual dog fair that we always go to. I had SO much fun!!! We did the walk and saw all the booths. Greyhound Friends had a booth so we visited with them for a while. My friend, Fast was there. I got a lot of cookies and other free goodies too. I met a pitbull who is a real heroine! She saved her owner from being hit by a train. She dragged her unconscious mom to the side of the train tracks and then got hit herself. She lost a leg and had internal injuries! She is OK now though. She led the walk. We only stayed for 2 hours because it was very hot!!! Mom didn't want me to over heat. I was fine with that. We saw every thing. I am tired now. It was a fun day!!

I would love to see the art work when you receive it...
How could the dog sitter forget about a PAYING job? Friend or not she isn't responsible. I would have piddled on the floor.
I will post a picture when we receive it. It may be a couple of weeks as the art work is coming from England.
Yes, mom has already been in touch with a new sitter. We will meet her soon. Mom and dad are glad I have strong bladder control. Mom felt SO bad for me. She knows how it feels when you have to "go" and can't.
