Mommy's Favorite Place

Hi Everybody!

Thanksgiving was fun, but I only got a tiny bit of Tofurkey. No fair. At least I did get to spend the whole day at my Grandma and Grandpa's house. I even got to go for a walk in their neighborhood, which is always a good opportunity to read pee mails from new friends and try to lay claim to another part of the city. I was sooooo tired when we got home.

I hadn't even recuperated from my big Thursday when my parents announced that we were going to Fort Funston on Friday!!! It is my Mommy's favorite place and it is pretty high on my list too. There were, like, a bazillion dogs there with their families. And the weather was perfect! There were cliffs, but they were waaaaay to big for jumping.

There are two kinds of people who go to Fort Funston: families (+/- 4 people with 1 dog) or dog walkers (1 person with +/- 10 dogs). During the week it is filled with dog walkers. On the weekends it is filled with families. Since yesterday was a holiday, it was a mix of both--mostly families, but also some dog walkers with their holiday clients.

Mommy and Daddy brought the good treats with us, so I got to practice being off-leash a little. I did very well, even when a dog walker came by with a very large off-leash herd. I was mostly brave and only a little bit scared.

In this video you can see me following Daddy. That whooping behind us is a dog walker. She said I was cute!

Winter is high season at FF. Yesterday was our first visit of the year. We'll go back lots more this winter, I'm sure.

Bye for now!

My Cousin Jasper

I am so happy today because my Cousin Jasper is HOME!!! He was lost all night and his parents and my parents were so worried. He was a naughty kitty and climbed out through a screen and went and hid somewhere outside. They looked and looked and looked, but it was dark and they did not find him. Everybody was sad all night.

But then...his Mommy had a dream last night that she should call Jasper from an upstairs window and he would come home over the fence. When she woke up, she did just that. And guess what! A few minutes later, Jasper walked right into the house and surprised the bejeebus out of them! He had come home over the fence and through the window, just like his Mommy had dreamed! Can you believe it???!!!

He was gone less than 24 hours, but he came home very dirty and very hungry. Don't you ever do that again, Jasper! We love you!

Bye for now,
Poppy Dog

Pee Ess: Doesn't Jasper look handsome in his walking jacket? My Sister Clover has one in purple. But she doesn't ever use hers because she's afraid of The Outdoors.

A New Not-a-Toy

I want to start by saying THANK YOU to all the doggies and kitties who said they liked my Sooper Pooper costume and Clover's pumpkin costume. We had fun on Howloween, and we hope you did too!

I recently discovered a new toy in my house. My daddy insists that it's Not-a-Toy, but I beg to differ. It is called a hackey sack. It's like a ball, but chewier! This is a picture of me right after I discovered it:

Then Daddy taught me how to play hackey sack for real! It was fun and I got the hang of it right away!

Bye for now!
