Lookin' Good for the New Year




A busy girl like me must look her best, so I have Jamie at the Oro Valley Petsmart do my grooming. She makes me look so beautiful! I love being groomed but I'm always happy when Mom comes to pick me up.

Boo!



It's that spooky time of year and don't I look "bewitching" in my costume? I had fun at a party for therapy dogs. Such funny costumes I saw! Now if I can just get Mom to take me out for Trick-or-Treats.

HOORAY FOR ME!



I can't believe two years have gone by since my first evaluation to be a therapy dog. I was kinda nervous that time. But now I'm an experienced professional. I'm proud to say I passed my second evaluation with flying colors! I even got a promotion from "Predictable" level to "Complex" level. That means I can visit in hospitals now. They said I was calm and beautiful. (blush!)

My other good news is....it's my 12th birthday today! Mom took me to visit at the nursing home and then we went to McDonald's. She got me a double-double burger. Yum! (I shared half with my sister, Sherry)

 I may be a year older, but my vet says I'm in great shape. Mom calls me a "Peerless Pup."

Life is good!

Isn't this nice?
My new friend, Olivia, made this drawing of her taking me for a walk.

Happy New Year!


My New Year's Resolution is to read more books with kids!
I'm off to a good start at the Oro Valley Library with my new friends, Olivia and Sierra. I love to hear books read aloud and see the pictures. Mom even made a book all about ME! If you come to the Oro Valley Library when it's Read to a Dog time, you can read it. What books are you going to read this year?

Poodle Romp


Oh boy! I had fun at Arizona Poodle Rescue's Poodle Romp. We met oodles of poodles at a park where dogs could run off leash, sniff each other and play. My new sister came from Arizona Poodle Rescue and she got to see her former foster mom. I came home dog tired from all the excitement.

Sister Sherry



Well, I didn't get to be Only Dog for long. Last week Mom and Dad and I went up to the Petsmart in Scottsdale to see if Arizona Poodle Rescue had a sister for me. They did! And here she is. Her name is Sherry (changed from Cherri). She's skinnier than I am so I have to be sure she eats all her dinner. She doesn't know any human words like 'sit', 'come', 'stay', or 'down'. Mom and I will have to teach her these things so she can be as wonderful as (ahem) I am. But she has already learned one trick. When someone comes home she grabs a teddy bear to greet them, just like I do. Yesterday she got a check-up at the vet and all is OK for now. She has stinky breath, but in a month or so she'll get her teeth cleaned and then I won't faint when she breathes on me.

Sherry will be fun to hang out with as long as she understands the rules:
I am #1,
only I get to hide in the big closet,
only I get to sleep on the big bed,
only I get to go on Pet Partner visits,
only I get to woof, "Welcome home, Sherry!"
