Lots to Catch Up!

Hey WoodyWatchers! Hope you are having a great Wednesday. We have been gone so much lately that it has been tough to find the time to give you an update! Last Thursday, we spent the day and evening at Millcreek Elementary in Lexington, KY. What a super place to kick off our 2006-07 school tour! Everyone was so friendly. The second photo is of Mommy and me with Ms. Williams - the principal. Ms. Williams just laughed when we asked if they could change their mascot from the Millcreek Lions to the Millcreek WIENER DOGS! Speaking of lions, during one of our fourth grade classroom visits, the teacher had the neatest stuffed animal lion in the class. I had to get my paws - and my mouth on it. All the students laughed and giggled, though Mom and Dad didn't think it was nearly that funny! I stopped before I wound up in the doghouse!

The first photo is of the three of us with Ms. George Ella Lyons (a very famous Kentucky author) and Ms. Connie Crowe from the Kentucky Book Fair. This past week we taped an interview that will air before the Kentucky Book Fair in November. Once we have the deTAILS, we will let you know.

Yesterday, we spent the morning at the Meade County Public Library and the afternoon at Muldraugh Elementary. It was too fun. The only bad part was that my batteries on my camera went dead. Therefore, I couldn't take any pictures. I did try to use my crayons and sketch a few pictures out from the things I saw, but I quickly realized I wasn't near the artist that our illustrator James Asher is.

I better say "Arff" for now. It is getting close to supper time. I love helping Mom set the table for dinner. It just means we are getting ready to fill my tummy!

Chloe says to tell everyone "ARFF!"

Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

Packing my Scooby Back Pack

Good Morning, WoodyWatchers! Chloe and I hope you are all having a super day! Mommy woke us up very early this morning. She said we had a busy day. We had to get baths, clean up our toy chest, and pack our back pack. Tomorrow is our first day back in the schools. We are so excited!!! We kick off our School Tour in Lexington at Millcreek. We can't wait to meet all the students and staff! I hope I sleep tonight. I have a feeling I will be so excited that I will have to count sheep to doze off! Anyway, I better go. We will write about Millcreek and hopefully show you some photos too!

Have a great day! Work and Dream like a Big Dog!

Where does the time go?

Hey Friends! It's me, Woody, your long lost friend. Sorry I haven't written in a while. Sometimes our days get so busy that it is tough to get to the computer. Other days, Chloe and I get to the computer, but we spend our time playing with that mouse and never get to writing in our diary!

Our days have been busy, but as usual, very entertaining. This past Saturday, Chloe, Mom, Dad, and I spent time in Lebanon, KY. The Hope Community Church invited us to the Spring View Nursing Home. It is always exciting to be with people of all different ages. We heard neat stories from long ago and made a whole new group of friends. We wanted to share a few photos with you. Chloe and I made a promise to visit the nursing homes more often. The residents always love having company, and Chloe and I always love being rubbed!

I better go. It is getting late and Mom and Dad are ready to tuck Chloe and me into bed. I am so sleepy.

Goodnight! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

A day with the Family!

Well, not necessarily my family, but still a family!

Arff, Arff! Hi WoodyWatchers! Chloe and I hope you are having a terrific day! We are home today catching up on some much needed work, and rest too!

Saturday, the four of us were in Monticello, KY. That is in Wayne County and is located in the bottom part of our state - almost in Tennessee. It was exciting for us to visit Wayne County for the very first time. We met so many people - lots of whom had a wiener dog too! In fact, we met Odie's mom, and Oscar's mom, just to name a few! In fact, one big family came to see us. You can see them in the second photo. We told them if they wanted to use that photo for their Christmas card, they could. Chloe rolled her eyes when I said that, but I thought it was a super idea!

I better go. Chloe and I have had lots of emails to answer lately, so I need to get to work! Don't forget to Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
