SO, How Was Your Day?


 My dad took me out to the park, (Memorial park) three times! Yes, We walked there three time today! AND we also went to Long Dock Park once, (Sorry Ryder for not being there this morning, my mom had to catch a train and my dad was running late and it looked kinda’ like rain…and we never got out of the house on time).

In between I hung out with my dad, we worked in the basement. My dad is building an exam table for the Beacon office of Orange Pediatric Care, P.C. located at 301 Main Street Beacon, NY. 12508 (845) 831-5995….(cheap plug for us! wooohooo) I am the mascot…well, I get to hang out there occasionally. so we were in the basement putting a final coat of finish on it. we also had to fix the blasted water heater again, (It is an AO Smith Promax water heater, my dad says it is a piece of junk because the VF sensor is always getting triggered and turning the water heater off. (the VF sensor is the “volatile fume” sensor bu tit is way too sensitive and even if the basement is a little dusty it goes off or if he is letting varnish dry). …that was the “anti plug”

hmmm… what else we watched some of the Olympics, they’re in London and since I am an English Mastiff I figured I should watch. We saw some water polo, which seemed like soccer, (football over there), but in the water and some gymnastics. It was Ok, but I didn’t see any dog events at the London Olympics. They are supposed to be games, Olympic games, but everyone seemed so serious.

Then for dinner I had dog food with chicken GIBLETS! wow those were good.. My dad saute’d them, (fancy word for fried them) yyuuuuummmmmm!

…and to top it all off I got to look at and even taste just a litle of the Black cherry and berry frozen shake my dad made for my mom.

….so I had a pretty darn good day!

Life Lesson: Enjoy all of the little things that make up your day.

105


It was 93 F today in Beacon, NY but with the humidity, it felt like 105. But my fur coat did not stop me today. I dragged my mom and my dad to a half mile hike to the park. It was like jogging in a sauna. But we had cotton candy ice cream after. Life is still good.

Life Lesson: It is not too hot if you have ice cream.

At The Beacon Long Dock Park


Sometimes things only go right.

I should be sad today because I got stood up. My little girl friend forgot to tell her mommy about our date, so they made plans to go somewhere else. Also, my mommy gave her a Ruby doll. I almost got in trouble for jumping on her grandmother (tasked with giving her the gift) because I wanted the doll for myself.

So we went to Long Dock Park instead. It is Beacon’s newest park. It has a kayak pavilion, which houses kayaks for rent during weekends. It also has the Beacon Point Project, which is almost like a sculpture that juts out to the river and lets the water in during high tide so people can fish there. The picture above was taken there.

That’s not even the best part. There is a farmer’s market every Sunday where you can get all sorts of goodies. Today we had Nordic crepes and lamb spring rolls. I didn’t even have to beg. My mommy’s food is my food.

And there are so many dogs and people to meet. Somebody said I’m a Horsey. Another said I’m just a little pony. Everybody had been so nice to me.

I am also getting to be more confident. I try to go to new places now. I still sometimes get scared but not as much as I used to.

Life Lesson: Count your blessings, instead of your misfortunes.

 

Too Many Dogs in the USA Go Hungry Every Day


 Yes, it is sad but true! Many American dogs do indeed go hungry every day. I myself go hungry at least three times a day and I have to wait for some human, (usually my dad) to feed me. Then I am better, but sooner or later the hunger comes back. Hunger is like a disease, but at least there is a cure….more food.

I was a little under the weather earlier this week and my apetite wasn’t great. Now however I am much better! The good folks at Hudson Highlands Vetinary in Beacon really are good. I LOVE them. They made me feel better and now I want to play, walk, and EAT.

My dad took me for a bunch of different and long walks this weekend. We went to the park one way. Then we went to the park another way. we ran around the ballfield. We went to the park with my mom, ( I never knew she could walk that far!). We ran around, we played tug, we, (ok, I) chewed sticks, and boy -oh – boy did we get hungry! It is so sad when I have to go hungry. I had to wait and wait for my food. It took a long time, maybe even more than minutes, like a lot of minutes all added up to equal several minutes!

So when you see a hungry dog give him a cookie, (like the old saying in the old movies……”brother can you spare a cookie”?)

Pretty soon I’ll be able to get my own food.

Life Lesson: MANGIA!
